Hey guys!

Does this feature work for you? I have a Series 4 and a 2019 iMac but it is extremely unstable and it fails to unlock like 90% of the time which is quite annoying. I have had the same issue when I had the iMac 2015 too but worked perfectly on my MacBook Pro.

It works for a while when I rebooted the iMac and then it fails again. iOS, watchOS and macOS are all up to date. I do have two accounts on the iMac as I share this with my partner but it shouldn't matter.

I am hoping the new macOS Catalina will resolve this issue...

It works very well with my Series 2 watch and a 2019 iMac. Very occasionally it refuses to unlock, but I would say that it's fine 90% of the time. I'm running 10.14.6 beta right now, but it was good on production OS as well

For me it is working, but for some reason the imac is therefore using wifi instead of ethernet even when i do set priority to ethernet...so i turned the unlocking off...
