AirPods with Apple Watch SE and iPhone 12

Hardware and Accessories

I recently purchased an apple watch SE and an iPhone 12. I have a pair of air pods connected to both devices. I understood that voice over would switch back and forth as I used them. However, this has not been happening for me. Occasionally, audio will switch from one to the other after a significant lag, but most of the time there is no switch.
Is this a known issue? Any tips would be great!

Far as I can tell, Voiceover's been set up to not switch over for speech. I'm not sure why. You can force it to switch by long-pressing the crown to bring up Siri, but it will switch back after a few seconds unless you play something other than Voiceover speech.
