    PS: I'd love for watchOS PIN to allow a much stronger option than 4-digits. Since it also unlocks my Mac, which also has 1Password that only needs the password inputted after a restart/login, the convenience of unlocking my Mac with my Watch is a security weak point with 10k possible combinations and no limit to the number of attempts an attacker could try if they stole my MBP in sleep mode and my Watch. That saving grace here is that there must be an internet connection enabled for using this feature because iCloud is involved, which means I would be able to issue Lost Mode and/or Erase to my Mac and Watch as I see fit, assuming I'm free to do so and have access to the internet. Still, I'd like an option for up to a 10-digit PIN to increase the complexity from 10 thousand to 10 billion, with no indication on the keypad of the PIN's length.
    There is a security setting on the watch that wipes it after 10 attempts at unlock.  Therefore, after stealing your MBP and your watch, they would have a 1 in 1000 change of breaking in before the watch wiped itself.
