On your Apple Watch

Siri uses the same language and voice on your Apple Watch that's set up on your iPhone. On Apple Watch Series 3 or later, you can have Siri speak responses. On your Apple Watch, go to Settings > Siri.

On earlier Apple Watch models, Siri will display responses on your screen with text or images. Learn more about Siri on Apple Watch.
