This video doesn't make any sense and is full of inaccuracies.

And I don't quite understand your question either.
The whole purpose of wrist detection is to automatically lock your AW when you remove it.
In any case, I don't think it is possible to set the watch to lock after a period of inactivity like a phone (I think this is what your are asking for?)

Where can I complain to get back the time I spent watching this ridiculous video?

Yeah that video is awful. It's like he doesn't finish anything and jumps around.

Not possible.

Why do you want it though when wrist detection works flawlessly?!

Have you tried to rotate orientation, so the chrown is pointing away from your hands? That has eliminated all accidental chrown presses for me.

Alternative You can enable water lock in control center.

I believe the issue is to lock the watch screen/crown so it will not make unwanted things by accident. The watch is definitely "designed for California" and short sleeves. I have issues too when I have to dress multiple sleeves and/or gloves.

Hold on, if the issue is to lock so that you will not activate anything by accident, this is very much possible.
Just use the "water lock":
When the water lock is activated, the watch will be unresponsive to touch.

Nothing to do with passcode and/or wrist detection.
