    Sounds like your phone added the Huatch to Trusted Devices in Smart Lock. As is the case with my Moto X Pure, it assumed that the phone is in your possession when you are connected to certain devices or are on your home network, etc. Go to Settings --> Security --> Smart Lock and clear the watch out. And anything else you don't want. I hope this helps :)
