@flyerchas On the watch did you try Settings -> Security -> Lock -> Type? You should be able to disable it there.
Be aware that if you have setup Samsung Pay though, turning off the Lock will reset Samsung Pay.
I find the lock annoying. When I had my Watch 3, it only asked me for a lock for Samsung Pay, which duh of course. I'll only ever unlock it whenever I pay with my watch. Now with my Watch 4 classic, it automatically locks when you put it in the charger or if it's been a while since you poked the watch or something. It's annoying having to unlock it in the morning after waking up or if I randomly wake up in the middle of the night and my half functioning brain is trying to unlock it to view notifications.
yes!! so annoying!! I have the same problem, so I took samsung pay off the watch so now instead of having the ability to pay with my watch, its just my phone. Not happy, this and the notification problem just might send this new watch back and stick with my watch 3 which WORKS
