Siri

Siri and Voice Dictation really come in handy on Apple Watch, especially since there's no keyboard. Siri seems a lot more accurate on the Watch than on the iPhone. Something else to note is that Siri on Apple Watch doesn't have any audio feedback, however there will be a tap on your wrist to indicate the Siri has responded.   Siri is activated either by waking the screen and saying "Hey Siri" or by pressing the digital crown for 2 seconds

For some requests, such as creating an appointment or sending a message, Siri will prompt you with a confirmation.  For situations like this, you can remind hands free by saying "Hey Siri, Ok",  "Hey Siri,  Send" or "Hey Siri, Cancel"

Here are some things you can do using Siri on Apple Watch:

Set an Alarm for 6am

Change my 6:30 alarm to 6:15

Turn off my 9am alarm
