    Running:-

    iPhone 6 with latest 8.4 public beta
    Apple Watch with OS 1.01

    Watch arrived 10 days ago and I've been using Siri and text dictation on it frequently and with great results. Until yesterday, when Siri and text dictation both stopped working. The "graph" in text dictation moves with sound, the white to-and-fro line in Siri also starts up after I stop speaking, but neither produce text and both eventually time out with "sorry I can't" type messages.

    I really don't want to restore my iPhone as new, but I have tried:-

    Rebooted both phone and watch.
    Restored watch from backup.
    Restored watch as a new watch.

    Any other ideas?

    I think this is the issue, just paired the watch with a 5C running iOS 8.3 I have kicking around and all works as expected.

    Actually, even with 8.3 it turned out to be an app that was causing the problem.

    Add Hailo, no dictation/Siri, remove Hailo all works fine.

    Try saying what you need to siri, and then tap the screen or the little bars on the bottom. That accelerates the process 100% for me, and I think it makes it work better too.
