Is there a way to bypass this with a local account? I just want to have the widgets without an account.

No, the Widgets require a Microsoft account to work. However, you don't have to sign in to Windows with a Microsoft account. You can continue to use a Local account, but just sign in to Widgets with your MS account. That's what I do.
