    Ok. Tried the WiFi using my jet pak and still no sound. What the?
    I’m not sure what’s going on. Seems like a hassle just to get a mouse to tell me the time. Lol. Mine is working now though after following these steps.

    Here is a link to the Apple support steps to follow.

    I wonder if it's only affecting the 3rd generation Apple Watch because tapping Mickey on my original series Apple Watch causes it to speak the current time.

    I googled it. I did unpair and paired up. I did power it off. Still. No voice

    It's not affecting all Series 3 watches, I have no issue with Mickey or Minnie on my Series 3 GPS watch. The one suggestion, make sure the 'Tap to Speak Time' option is set on in 'Sounds & Haptics' in the Watch app on your phone. If nothing else, you can try turning that off and then later try switching it back on, see if that helps the voices download.

    Ok. I think I found the answer on Apple support. I had to select the Mickey Mouse watch face, have both my watch and iPhone in an area with WiFi and then wait. It took about a half hour but it finally worked. I guess the watch is downloading the language in the back ground or something. At least that’s the explanation in Apple support.

    Oh and you can’t have silent mode on.

    I had to make sure my watch would hook up to the 2.4 GHz band of my WiFi router before it would connect without the iPhone being active with the watch. I did this by forcing the phone to go to 2.4 GHz, then doing something with the watch that required it to access the internet through the WiFi connection. After that, the Apple support instructions worked just fine.

    I would like to turn this thread in to a Q&A thread for future use. That will entail a title change. (I'll make it appear as a question that gets answered "How do I get.... or How do I fix...") Anyways have we established the above quote as the answer? If so then I can get it changed and marked etc.


    And hopefully we can help others with the same issue.
