    is that correct? I played with one in the store and you can reply to texts but not emails.

    Can you delete emails and mark them as read from the watch?

    That's crazy you still can't do this. It'd be nice to be able to choose to send quick email replies via voice on the watch, and longer form stuff on the phone.

    Personally, for email replies... I rather just pull out my phone. Emails require more thought, attention, functionality... i.e. viewing attachments, attaching stuff like gifs, ccing people etc.

    I totally agree with the voice reply though... could be handy. WatchOS update perhaps?

    How would you reply, on a tiny keyboard? Unless you're saying reply with siri?

    LOL!

    I really hope this is a feature that's added later. Would also like to use voice to send a quick response to email.

    oh well didnt needed it to email anyway, it would be nice feature but not needed for me since i just want to quick peek at email and texts. instead of putting my finger on phone and opening that app or notification tab and then go into app:D

    I thought I heard somebody say in a keynote that you could start replying to an email on your phone and then due to Continuity you could pick up and finish on your phone. It's silly that you can't use Siri to reply.

    Yeah you can decide if a thoughtful response is needed.

    ----------

    Apple should add it just so its an option. If you can text you should be able to reply to email IMO...

    Did anyone found out if you can create calendar appointments on the watch?
    I wasn't able to activate Siri in the store (the operating of the watch was really confusing to me, a long tim apple affiniado) so I couldn't figure stuff out, and with buttons and presses I wasn able to.
