I'm not able to unlock 1Password on my MacBook Pro using my Apple Watch when the MacBook lid is closed. The following message is displayed:
Touch ID is unavailable when your MacBook lid is closed. Enter your Master Password to unlock 1Password.
I can however unlock using Apple Watch when the MacBook Pro lid is open.
1Password should unlock using the Apple Watch when a supported laptop (in my case a MacBook Pro) is powered on the lid is closed. This is based on my understanding that other system wide authentication can be performed using Apple Watch when the lid is closed.
Steps to reproduce:
It would be good to know if this is a bug, feature omission or limitation of the Apple Watch authentication API as I specifically upgraded to 1Password Families to allow Apple Watch authentication as my MacBook is permanently in clamshell mode (i.e lid closed).
Thanks in advance
