I saw this before the beta (I think in One UI 3 actually) so it's unlikely. It was a good feature to have. Wonder if on Wear OS watches that you need to have the original Google account sign in before you're able to set up though (similar to phones).
Shouldn't be the case. I have used activation lock to secure my Galaxy watches since the watch 3. I just traded in my watch 3 and was required to remove it and still have the activation lock on my watch 4 but the watch 5 is all gone. I think activation lock is a great security feature. It is the security of the devices to its owner that, in my eyes, makes the difference between Apple and samsung device and data security.
Thank you for your Feedback. We appreciate your contribution to the Beta community.
