Ever since I updated my airport devices to firmware 7.6.7 five days ago, Using Siri to control Philips Hue via the watch has been unbelievably reliable. Before it was hit and miss. (Miss, mostly, to be brutally honest.)

Now its fast and reliable. And it's been like that for five days. No more, "I couldn't get a response from your devices..."

Anyone else experiencing the same?

I've noticed a slight improvement with Siri performing individual tasks, but I still get timeouts when enabling scenes. Still, any improvement is a welcome one.

Still going strong here.

I really do feel it's improved the watches wifi connection. Before the upgrade, the watch would often spin its wheels when I asked Siri change the lights. iPhone Siri, OTOH, was always much more reliable (just not as convenient)

With this airport upgrade, watch Siri is now as reliable as iPhone Siri. I'm happy!

I think there were a lot of under the hood improvements with Siri. Asking store hours now works for example (it use to say it could t tell you that information).
