I have an Apple Watch series 2. I don't find this option in the Watch app on my phone.
I'm getting an Apple Watch series 5 in a few days. But I wander if it only works on a few models, or if it's just me who are doing anything wrong?

Hi slj,

This feature will work with Series 1 and later. I just double checked this feature on my Series 1 and 5. Both work as expected.
