How to take selfie with A7iii?

I have a Fujifilm XT20 and I can take selfie by

1) putting camera on tripod with settings - AF-C + face detect + 10sec timer
2) press the shutter (with AF on)
3) walk somewhere in front of the camera and let camera detect my face and I can get a sharp photo after 10sec.

I tried the same with my new A7iii and it doesn't work because

1) A7iii AF-C doesn't work with timer
2) AF is acquired once I press the shutter at the start of the timer.

Is there a way to set the camera such that AF is only acquired at the end of the 10sec or is there a work around? I tried searching the internet and didn't really find an easy way. I realize that I can use the app but I prefer to keep it simple (similar to my fuji). Thanks so much.
