Quick Tip: Siri on Apple Watch

Dick Tracy Mode

Did you know you can access Siri on your Apple watch? Do you remember Dick Tracy? That’s what I feel like when I talk to my watch. He was surely ahead of his time!

Activating Siri

First, check your Settings in the Watch app so Siri is turned on so it will work. The Watch app is where you determine all settings for the watch.

There are actually three ways to activate Siri on your watch.

  1. Say “Hey Siri”
  2. Press and hold the Digital Crown
  3. If you are using the Siri watch face, tap the Siri color swirl/circle ( I’m sure there is a more technical term, but swirl will work too).

Multiple Siri Responses

If you have multiple Apple devices in the same area, each may activate when you say “Hey Siri”. Each may also activate one at a time with a few seconds to a few minutes between them. You can stop this from happening by setting only one device to active when it hears “Hey Siri”.

There is a process all your devices go through to determine which will activate first, based on the “hierarchy of use” or which device was used and when.

In a nutshell, you might hear “I’m listening” or “What can I help you with?” from each of your devices. The watch will give you the tapping (haptic) on your wrist.

What’s next?
