    What are your favorite commands to ask Siri on your Apple Watch? For me, I have to admit asking Siri to send a text is still the most frequent thing I do...

    But I have a feeling I'd do a few other things - but could use your tips

    Sending text is good, and setting timers is another!

    I use her a lot for texts, timers, driving directions, and phone calls.

    The only thing that I use it for is timers. I've used it to send a text once or twice, but I don't really feel it was any easier than just pulling out my phone and taking care of it normally.

    Exactly why I use my iPhone for Siri 99% of the time. Shes super slow on my Apple Watch but pretty quick on my iPhone 7 Plus.

    I don't use Siri much in general. I do have her place calls for me on my AW sometimes while I'm driving if I HAVE to take a call. I also have her add tasks for me in Todoist, which is nice.

    I use Siri on my Watch to unlock my front door using HomeKit and sending texts.

    Siri, call... (forgot that one)


    I use Siri on my Watch to unlock my front door...
    I'm considering that with an August lock. I won't stop carrying a door key, but this would be really useful for me.

    Can you confirm that you can't use geolocation to lock and unlock your door with a HomeKit-compatible lock?

    I know the August lock will auto-lock on a time delay, like a iPhone lock screen. But I've heard that with HomeKit, you'll have to tap the phone (or Watch?) instead of just approaching the door. Yes, no?

    I dont use the August Lock. I am using the Shalage lock. It does not work with geolocation. You need to use the app or the keypad to gain access.

    I'm now certain that's a HomeKit thing, common to any HomeKit-compatible lock. Apple is probably doing that for security reasons, whereas geolocation is supposed to work with Hue-Homekit lights.

    No response using Siri on my Series 2. Whenever I say, "Hey Siri" Siri quickly responds on my 6S Plus

    I just mentioned in another thread that telling Siri on the Watch to take me to a location was very handy. I didn't have to take my phone out. Very quick and easy.
