Siri on the WATCH
Siri is phenomenally useful on the iPhone – but wait until you see it on the Apple Watch. Whether you’ve got the 38mm or 42mm variant, interacting directly with the Watch’s screen can be fiddly. Effective voice recognition is essential, and Siri can do plenty without handing off to its host iPhone. Siri can do a few useful Watch-specific tricks: you can enquire about your activity stats, for instance. You can also do mundane tasks fast: setting up calendar events and appointments can be done verbally, as well as jobs such as location-specific reminders (“Remind me to buy coffee when I get to Waitrose”, for example). You can also send text messages and start voice calls. Getting Siri’s attention is simple: just hold down the Watch’s Digital Crown until Siri responds, or you can raise the watch as if you were going to use its touchscreen and instead say “Hey Siri”.
Siri is an indispensable aid to creating calendar events and reminders on the Apple Watch.
