pressing the crown and power button simultaneously doesn't take the screenshot.
Can you help please?

I had to enable take screenshot in the Watch App on the iPhone.
I do not understand why it was disabled.

It's ridiculously easy to end up with a ton of these by accident from hand position, glove wearing, putting on jackets with elasticated cuffs etc. and it's a seldom wanted feature for most folk so I think product management at Apple got it right to have this default off.

Well, I prefer it on. I have beta access to a few AW apps and that's dependent on me giving good feedback on new releases, so screenshot is pretty important to me. It threw me off for a while, as I had to look up how to re-enable it, even when coming from an old AW S0 backup.

I turned this off shortly after getting an S0. I took too many accidental shots when my wrist was bent.
I think that's why I had turned it off at one point too, especially when wearing gloves and they get bunched up and press them. I turned it back on now because first of all I was just posting screenshots on here, and second of all because of the new recessed side button I think it's less likely to be accidentally triggered.
