How to use Siri on Apple Watch
To access Siri on your Apple Watch, you can press and hold the digital crown or simply raise your wrist and say “Hey Siri.” Siri will be listening to your request.
If you are using an Apple Watch Series 3 or higher, its W2 chipset allows Siri to finally answer you on the clock instead of displaying his or her written response on the screen.
Improved functionality and translates instant responses from Siri, and if you have chosen the mobile smartwatch option, you can use it even when you are not connected to your smartphone.
If you want to know more about Siri, here we explain how to use Siri on iPhone.

You may also have Siri set an alarm. Just say, “Siri Siri. Set the alarm at 6.30” with voila.
Use Siri to make phone calls on Apple Watch
Siri is also a quick and easy way to make calls. It says, “Saw Siri. Call mom” and the phone app will immediately dial the correct number. For more information, see our guide to calls on Apple Watch.
Use Siri to send messages to Apple Watch
Texting is easy using Siri, too. Don't say, “Siri Siri. I wrote to my mother, can I go for a cup of tea?” We have a guide for messages on the Apple Watch here.
There are so many great things you can do with Siri on the Apple Watch. See your time of day, for example, and find out what the weather will be like before you leave home without an umbrella.
Use Siri to get directions on the Apple Watch
You can ask Siri how you got somewhere, and the Map app will open with directions to your destination. “How do I get to the Plaza de España?” For example.
As you move, the Apple Watch will move you to turn left or right by tapping your hand using a haptic response.
Use Siri to get the results of the football game on Apple Watch
If you follow a particular sports team, you can ask Siri about the results. “Did Real Madrid win a football match yesterday?” will display results on the Apple Watch screen.
Use Siri to open apps on Apple Watch
Since the Apple Watch screen is much smaller than what we normally see on our iPhones or iPads, it's hard to imagine getting into a specific app.
The icons on the Apple Watch home screen are small circles, for example, and depending on the number of apps you have, they may not fit on one screen.
This is where the opening skills of the Siri app come in handy. Say “Hello Siri. Open Workout,” and the voice assistant will do just that, saving you time to search for the Workout app icon on your Apple Watch screen.
