How do you calculate a point into decimal degres in ArcGIS Pro

I'm trying to use ArcGIS Pro to calculate the lat/long of a point in decimal degrees.  I must not be understanding the help section below.  In the calculate field I enter !SHAPE.FirstPoint.X@decimaldegrees! but it fails because decimaldegrees is not defined...

 

Usage

  • Python expressions can be created using properties from the Geometry object including type, extent, centroid, firstPoint, lastPoint, area, length, isMultipart, and partCount (for example, !shape.area!).

  • Python expressions can use the geometry area and length properties with an areal or linear unit to convert the value to a different unit of measure (for example, !shape.length@kilometers!).

    • Linear unit of measure keywords:
      • CENTIMETERS | DECIMALDEGREES | DECIMETERS | FEET | INCHES | KILOMETERS | METERS | MILES | MILLIMETERS | NAUTICALMILES | POINTS | UNKNOWN | YARDS
