Smart Lock on Galaxy Watch 4

I can set my phone to stay unlocked whilst it's near my watch, so why can't I set my watch to stay unlocked whilst it's near my phone?

I find entering a pin or drawing the pattern to be quite fiddly on a small screen, so it's annoying that I have to do it every time I take my watch off - eg to charge, even when it's right in front of me.

Hopefully one day watches will get under-screen fingerprint scanners!

Go on to your phone's settings and search for "smart lock" and then "trusted devices". Enable your watch, done!
