    Anyone else?

    I used to be able to unlock the watch just by unlocking my iphone, but it doesn't work anymore. After the update, i noticed it stopped working, and when I went into the settings page, it was switched off. I tried to turn it on, and it asks for my passcode on the watch. After I enter it, it closes the page on the phone, and when I go back, it is off again. No way to turn it on.

    I have the opposite issue. My watch will unlock via my iPhone even when its not on my wrist. I can leave my watch on my desk, unlock my phone and watch my watch unlock also.

    I have the same issue, no longer able to unlock with iPhone after update. Do you get corporate emails through an exchange account? Trying to see if this may be the reason.

    I had this issue a couple weeks ago where wrist detection was broken, also noticed the heart rate monitor was no longer working. Restarted the Watch and all back to normal.

    I get corporate exchange emails on my phone and haven't experienced this.

    Happened to my wife's. Password box came up but never turned on. A reboot of the phone and watch fixed it.

    A restart of both phone and watched fixed auto unlock for me too.
