Question: How to disable activate on wrist raise

How do I disable activate on wrist raise. I don't want the screen to activate when I raise my wrist. I've tried going to the watch app then disabling general -> wake screen -> wake screen on wrist raise but it doesn't work. Whenever I raise my wrist the screen comes on. Is this a bug?

Apple Watch Series 2, watchOS 3.1.3
