I just updated to watchOS 2 how do I enable activation lock?
If you have it turned on your phone, then its on on your watch as well. I believe all you have to do is make sure that "find my iPhone" is turned ON under Settings-->iCloud
Not sure, anyone knows how to get to this screen ?
That screen appears only during the initial setup of your iPhone. As I said above, as long as you have find my iPhone activated on your phone, then activation lock is also activated on your watch.
To verify this you can open the apple watch app on your iPhone and go to the very first option that says "Apple Watch". If activation lock is on you will now see a button to "Mark as Missing" in addition to the name of your watch and the "unpair" button that has always been there.
Ok, so did my upgrade, showing Version 2.0 in my About. However just shows my watch as being paired and the option to Unpair. Does this mean I have to reset my watch and turn it on then?
Wouldn't hurt to do a reboot of both your watch and phone. But make sure that in your iPhone (not watch app) settings that find my iPhone is turned on under Settings-->iCloud. If you still don't see "mark as missing" in your apple watch app then I'd try unpairing and re-pairing your watch from your iPhone.
ps. also make sure that location services is on for find my iPhone.
Mine did it automagically. it just popped up a message on the watch saying it was on
likewise it was about 30 minutes after updating.
Same here although it did take a while to appear.
Never appeared for me, but turning off FMiP then turning back on triggered it (plus a notification on the watch that it was active).
Yes! Thank you. This did it and didn't have to Reboot. Turned Find My Phone OFF then back on and saw this
and then got this on my watch
and then double checked the Watch App -> Apple Watch and success. Really appreciate the help.
I just did this--^. It worked and I got a msg on watch and mark as missing showed up too
Glad I looked at this thread. Had to turn FMIP off and on to start the Activation Lock. Hope more people see this.
Thanks - turning off FMIP and back on worked
I'm also glad I saw this thread. This process above worked for me too. Thanks folks.
I didn't need to turn FMiP off and on again to get this to work, it just happened automatically after a couple of minutes from updating.
I did do a hard reset of my watch and possibly my phone - can't remember the exact sequence of events now.
On major updates after playing with I couple minutes I always do hard resets.
