Android Central Question

I have new less than a week old Samsung Gear S3 Frontier watch.

And I'm trying to set up a screen security pin for when the watch is not beaning worn.

I go to > Settings
> Security
> Under Security setting I do not have the option of screen lock.
My choices are:
> Gear Lock
> Security update
> Wake up gesture.
No where to I see the screen lock option.
Can you some please assist this is a pretty importation set up I like have enabled.

You are almost there:

Go to
> Settings
> Security
> Click on "Gear Lock"

You will then get an opportunity to set the PIN and under "Use for" you will need to select "Screen and pay"
