How to Setup and Use Siri on Apple Watch

Siri uses your voice to activate and answer queries. It can handle complex questions and commands. This makes Siri ideal for the Apple Watch, where it can often work faster and more conveniently.

How to use Siri on Apple Watch

There are several ways to interact with the Apple Watch, including the Force Touch display that can differentiate between a touch and a press.

Whatever way you use to activate Siri, keep in mind that everything is processed via your iPhone.
