Have 7.0.2 on watch, 14.1 on iPhone. Have wrist detection on, passcode on, enabled unlock with iPhone turned on. My watch unlocked after setting it up. After unlocked I tried again a few hours later, wouldn't unlock. Tried resetting again, still wontunlock. Other than that everything works as it should. All notifications work flawlessly. Any input would be welcomed.
THANK YOU

watchOS 7.1 will fix it. 7.1 release candidate just got released a few minutes ago for developers. It won’t take long now before the general public gets it.

Is this just an issue with the Apple Watch Series 6?

My Series 5 is on 7.0.2 and iPhone is on 14.1. Watch unlocks every time I unlock my phone.
