    The "find my pone" function in the watch is for when you're near the phone - remember, it's normally connected by Bluetooth.

    If you're far enough from the phone that you can't remember if you left it at school or at work, use Android Device Manager. Since your watch is connected to the internet when you're not near your phone, any web browser will do. (The "find my phone" function is baked in - I guess they could hide it if there's a SIM in the phone, but developers don't usually waste a day on something like that. (And trust me, "just a little thing like that" could take a day to debug, recompile, retest, re-debug, etc. There's an old saying - "You can't change just one thing". It holds very true in programming. There are always side-effects.)

    Just ignore the function.
