Watch unlock option missing on BETA-10?

On my 2017 MacBook Pro 13" running Catalina, I get the option to unlock using my Watch in the 7.7 beta.

However on my 2017 iMac 27", there is no such option? I have the same version of Catalina and 1Password installed, and watch unlock works for macOS on both.

Is there something I need to do, or a compatibility restriction with iMacs?

1Password Version: 7.7 BETA 10
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: 10.15.7
Sync Type: Not Provided

    Its not something you're doing wrong. Your 2017 iMac isn't a supported configuration for Apple Watch unlock. It is only supported on machines that have a T1 or T2 chip inside of it and the iMac didn't receive such a chip in the 27 inch model until 2020.
