    Wondering who uses Siri on their watch and if so, what for. At the moment I don't use it on either my phone or watch although with the watch it's mostly because I've not looked into what it can do yet

    Always I use it for setting timers, or to remind me of something.

    Not much. Sometimes to initiate a call when I'm in the car but I generally don't use it.

    I use Siri regularly. It's easy to set times, reminders, Calender events, open some apps, and starts phone call.

    Using Siri with the Watch is really convenient for asking questions though occasionally you may have to go to the phone for answers.

    I bought the Watch to get notifications and to use Apple Pay, and had no idea I'd use Siri so much, mainly because it's so much more convenient than getting out the phone.

    I have only had my watch for a few days but I have used Siri already. I checked the score on game 7 of the world series a couple of times (before I was able to get home and watch the end of the game). Go Cubs!

    I use Siri all the time on the watch, more than on the phone.

    I'm able to open my bank app to check balances as well as use it for sending a quick text, set timers, and getting directions.

    Question for the Apple Watch users with Hey Siri enabled on their phone. Do the Watch and iPhone get confused on who should respond to the Hey Siri query?

    Normally, no. 'Hey, Siri' only works on the phone when it's plugged in. If you're charging the phone it can (and has) responded along with the Watch. This has been an occasional problem when using the phone in the car. It's in a cradle and powered, so I drop my arm so the Watch doesn't hear.

    Those of us who use Siri regularly are all laughing.

    That was true on the 6 and before but starting with the 6s models, "hey Siri" works on battery as well.

    Ah, noted, thanks. I'm still on a 5s. I'm assuming (aaack!) that this can be turned off in the phone's Settings. This is what I'd do since having a Watch.

    Count me in among those who use Siri on the Watch.

    Sounds like I'll have to look into Siri on the watch then. I think like others I've had indifferent experiences with it on the phone and not gone back to it

    I use it all the time. For timers, to send texts, check the weather, etc. Very handy.

    I did it once, merely to say I did it. But, then again I'm not into the whole voice thing much. For the second time since I've owned an Apple Watch, I answered a phone call via the watch. Felt weird...

    I use it all the time, I think it's great for actions such as setting a timer, an alarm, a reminder etc. – but on the Watch it's really not very good at giving you info (like what's on my calendar etc.).

    I personally don't have one, but my buddy uses it all the time to set reminders, alarms and call people. He seems to find it very useful!

    I use Siri on my Apple Watch Series 0 to start a workout, set a timer, set a reminder and place a phone call. I'd say 90% of the time she works as expected for me and it's better than getting my phone to do the same task. The main issue I have is, being an original Apple Watch, sometimes there is a lag in Siri becoming active. So I start speaking the command and she's not quite ready yet so only part of what I said is caught. But again that isn't usually a problem.

    I think the use of Siri in general is more about habit than actual usability. She can do a lot of things! But I see more people doing things manually with their phones instead of taking advantage of Siri. It might be social too. How comfortable are you raising your wrist in public to say something to your watch? In time this might become more commonplace.

    One of the handiest things I use Siri for is sending texts. When I'm busy (for example, running on the treadmill) I can easily send a text by speaking. It's something I'd have trouble doing with my hands on the watch display or iPhone.

    I'm constantly surprised at how well dictation to Siri works. I've getting away from a stilted pattern of speaking "word <pause> word <pause> word <pause>" etc., and just speak as though it's a "Ms. Jones, take a memo" thing. And Siri gets it right >98% of the time. She does have some problems elsewhere, but transcribing dictation for texts is really one of her strong points.
