calculate geometry

In ArcMap you can calculate a geometry value using either the PCS of the dataset or, alternatively, using the PCS of the data frame. Is there any way to do something similar with ArcGIS Pro?

I can calculate a field value using !shape.area@hectares! or !shape.length@meters!. But, as the data is hosted in ArcGIS Online, the calculations are done using Web Mercator Auxiliary Sphere. WMAS isn't any good for calculating accurate geometry values, and I don't want to have to download and reproject just to get accurate values.
