Use Siri on Apple Watch
Useful Siri commands
You can use Siri to perform tasks and get answers right on your Apple Watch. For example, use Siri to translate what you say into another language, identify a song and provide an instant Shazam result, or, after you ask a general question, display the first few search results along with a brief excerpt from each page. Just tap Open Page to view the page on Apple Watch. Try using Siri to do things that usually take you a couple of steps.
Siri is not available in all regions and languages. See the Apple Support article watchOS Feature Availability.
Siri: Say something like:
“How do you say ‘How are you?’ in Chinese?”
“Start a 30-minute outdoor run”
“Tell Kathleen I’m almost finished”
“Open the Sleep app”
“What song is this?”
“What causes rainbows?”
“What’s my update?”
“What kinds of things can I ask you?”
How to use Siri
To make a Siri request, do any of the following:
Raise your wrist and speak into your Apple Watch.
To turn off the Raise To Speak feature, open the Settings app on your Apple Watch, tap Siri, then turn off Raise to Speak.
Say “Hey Siri” followed by your request.
To turn off “Hey Siri,” open the Settings app on your Apple Watch, tap Siri, then turn off Listen for “Hey Siri.”
Tap the Siri button on the Siri watch face.
Press and hold the Digital Crown until you see the listening indicator, then speak your request.
To turn off the Press Digital Crown feature, open the Settings app on your Apple Watch, tap Siri, then turn off Press Digital Crown.
Tip: After you activate Siri, you can lower your wrist. You’ll feel a tap when there’s a response.
To reply to a question from Siri or to continue the conversation, hold down the Digital Crown and speak.
Siri can speak responses to you, as it does on iOS, iPadOS, and macOS. You can also hear Siri responses through a Bluetooth headset or speakers connected to Apple Watch.
Note: To use Siri, Apple Watch must be connected to the internet. Cellular charges may apply.
Change voice feedback settings
Siri can speak responses on your Apple Watch. Open the Settings app on your Apple Watch, tap Siri, then choose from the following:
Always On: Siri speaks responses, even when your Apple Watch is in silent mode.
Control With Silent Mode: Siri responses are silenced when your Apple Watch is set to silent mode.
Headphones Only: Siri only speaks responses when your Apple Watch is connected to Bluetooth headphones.
To change the language and voice used for Siri, open the Settings app on your Apple Watch, tap Siri, then tap Language or Siri Voice. When you tap Siri Voice you can choose a different variety or voice.
Note: The option to change Siri Voice is not available in all languages.
Delete Siri history
When you use Siri or dictation, your requests are stored for six months on Apple servers to help improve Siri responses to you. Your requests are associated with a random identifier, not with your Apple ID or email address. You can delete these interactions from the server at any time.
Open the Settings app on your Apple Watch.
Tap Siri, tap Siri History, then tap Delete Siri History.
