Apple Watch: lock screen

Hi please can I have some help. I’m getting so frustrated with my watch. I’m trying to use strava on the Apple Watch. When I run the screen locks and goes black and I have to put the password in to view my workout. Is there anyway of locking the screen on the ap so I don’t need to keep messing with my watch for the whole run. I just want it locked on the strava display at all times. Is this possible?

    Hi Katie and Brian - 

    Have either of you tried this?

    • On your iPhone, in the Watch app, go to: My Watch (tab) > General > Wrist Detection - turn this on.
    • On your iPhone, in the Watch app, go to: My Watch > Passcode > Turn Passcode on.
    • Also on the Passcode settings screen, enable Unlock with iPhone.

    Hopefully, that helps!
