    Do you guys know if the Siri raise to speak it’s only on the cellular series 3 Apple Watch ?

    Because my friend has a series 3 non cellular Apple Watch and the feature Siri raise to speak doesn’t work eve though it’s turn on in the settings app on the watch.

    Series 3 raise to speak involves the phrase "Hey Siri" while in Series 4 you can speak directly without the phrase.

    EDIT: Correction! Series 3 can do without the phrase with watchOS 5.

    You don’t have to say Hey Siri to the Series 3.

    My bad! I was under the impression that it's exclusive to the Series 4. Just found out that it's been implemented on Series 3 with watchOS 5.

    This. It’s really inconsistent.

    With my S3 I could barely get the raise to speak to work and it's not that different now that I have a S4. I have much more success when I say "Hey Siri" even though I know you're supposed to be able to just say the command.

    It’s works about 30% of the time.

    Another great feature that just works.

    Yeah, me too. I hope my watch up to my to speak and I get nothing 30% of the time but if I say hey Siri my watch responds right away. It needs some work to be done

    What's weird is that I frequently raise my wrist, say "Hey Siri", and then create a reminder. I gave up trying to do that without the "Hey Siri".

    We aren’t talking about saying “hey Siri”

    I'm aware of that. We're talking about raise to speak, which works less than half the time for me unless I say "hey Siri" first.

    It worked well on 5.1.1 but can't get it to work reliably on 5.1.2.

    I have just realised it does’nt work on my S4 and don’t recall trying it out on earlier Watch OS updates .

    I have tried to troubleshoot to no avail , albeit my HP responds to any Siri requests fast enough when am at home . However I need this to work on my wrist .

    Just a quick update; I got it working with the on/off raise to speak toggling a few times & a couple of reboots

    Don’t kid yourself. It will only last a day or two.
