I know that samsung find my gear/phone has a reactivation lock feature as I used it on my previous galaxy watches. I can not seem to find it for my watch 5. Is it me?

No I looked for the same thing when I got a Galaxy Watch 3 (cross referenced with Gear S3 menu so I knew where to look). Seems like they removed it for some reason.

That really sucks if they did. Fingers crossed it was removed only for the beta.

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.

I'm sorry but what are you suggesting? Your second statement does not make sense.
