    I'm trying to find a way to be able to create a reminder on watch via Siri, and be able to export it to a 3rd party app where I can view all my reminders on my watch at any time without having to use the phone.
    Apple reminders app would be ridiculously awesome, but I digress.

    I've downloaded wunderlist but can't find a way to export my Siri created reminders to view on the app.
    Are there any apps that do this? I will pay to play if it for sure works but I don't want to buy something if it won't do what I'm looking for.

    Thanks for any suggestions!

    I think this is something you want to do... Hey Siri - Remind me to take out the trash at 4:00pm and this gets added to your reminders on your phone. Apps like Fantastical 2 has your calendar and reminders all on the main screen and it replicates from the reminders on your phone. Reminders Nano does the same.

    If you create folders under your reminders - such as notes or groceries or anything really, you can then have those show up on your watch under Fantastical or Reminders Nano - among others. Hey Siri - Add Apples to my groceries list - that will add Apples to Reminders/Groceries. You can do the same for Notes or any other folder your create under reminders and Apps like Fantastical show reminders on the phone right at the top.

    Hope that is what you meant.

    Use Fantastical. I only use it for Watch reminders. It's great.

    I've been using Reminders Nano

    Reminders Nano by KendiTech

    It's very helpful for me, you can see all reminders in the same view as on your iPhone.

    On reminders nano, if I delete a reminder from the memo app, does it sync to apple reminders and delete it there as well?



    What about the same for fantastical?

    Thanks for the tips guys

    Reminders Nano is by far the best.

    It is THE Reminders App that should have come with the Watch.

    Yes, everything syncs both ways, instantly.

    On Reminders Nano, if you tap a reminder front the Watch, it will mark it as completed and will sync with native reminder app on iPhone to mark completed as well, its actually a pretty fast sync.

    I am not sure if Apple allows third party apps to delete reminders from Watch, but i am not 100% sure.
    With Reminders Nano you can definitely mark them as completed.

    Just a heads up: I find that when I'm using an app like Reminders Nano it's helpful to go into Settings->General->Wake Screen->Resume To and check "Previous Activity". That way I can keep Reminders Nano as the active App while I'm shopping / working / doing whatever I need reminders for.
