    apologies if this is already in a different thread.


    Just because you installed the new watchOS2 update does not mean activation lock is turned on


    how to check
    --
    open the watch app
    click on apple watch
    if it DOES NOT say "mark as missing" it means your activation lock IS NOT turned on, and anyone can erase your watch

    how to fix
    simple. turn off find my iPhone on your paired iPhone, and turn it on again. when the apple watch connects to the iPhone the next time, activation lock will be enabled

    obligatory apple support article

    I just restarted my phone and watch and it gave me the notification on the watch once it had restarted.

    Thanks for sharing though !

    Cheers !
