How to Make Siri work harder on your Apple Watch
1 Send a quick message
In the middle of cooking you could just raise your wrist and say “Hey Siri, ask my wife what would you like to drink with dinner question mark” and it will send an iMessage. You can specify by name or relationship; set these up in Contacts.
2 Command your home
“Hey Siri, turn off all the lights” will do just that for any HomeKit-enabled lights you have. Configure locks, security cameras and lights in the “I’m leaving” scene and everything can be set with one command as you walk out the door.
3 End pub arguments
Siri can leverage the power of the web – especially Wikipedia and Wolfram Alpha – to answer general knowledge questions. It’s particularly useful on Apple Watch because it’s strapped to your body, so it’s always with you!
4 Fast maths/conversions
There are great maths apps like PCalc, but Siri can quickly work with numbers for you (“Hey Siri, what’s a 15% tip of £24.50?”) as well as conversions (“What’s six ounces in grams?”, which is handy while cooking).
