    is anyone else having a issue where every time you say ok to your Apple Watch when replying to a text or iMessage ex it will capitalize it no matter what? Is there a fix to it? I don’t want people to think I’m yelling at them when I reply to them

    I guess you could just tap “send”, or say “send”.

    “OK” is supposed to be capitalized. So it’s not so much an issue imo. Be nice I guess if it used “okay”.

    You could use a different word like “affirmative”. :D

    I think he means Siri in general capitalization of OK since it’s the pronunciation of a word using letters.

    Ok. My bad.
    Btw, I don’t think “affirmative” is a good word for casual use. But whatever.

    My understanding is that OK is correct. It’s also OK to use okay (which I often do as, though less correct, it looks less disruptive in a sentence) and it can be better to use okay when using it as a verb (so okayed rather than OKed or OK’d). Ok is always wrong though.

    I always put Ok, as OK just looks too harsh

    Ever tapped OK to highlight with a green border, scroll with the Digital Crown to pick what you want it to display instead?

    Ok looks jarringly wrong to me even at the start of a sentence. Mid sentence, even though it looks wrong, I think I’d find ok less noticeably odd than Ok. If I want the text to flow without the visual disruption, I’ll use okay even though I think OK is technically more correct. The version that looks most wrong to me is O.K. though I gather some style guides do go for that.
