I'm finding that the dictation feature on my new Apple Watch is very useful, how ever it gets the odd word wrong, on the iphone you can edit the message before its sent. On the Apple watch i cant seem to find a way of doing it. I'm on watch OS3.

Just for future reference, it's the Apple Watch, not the iWatch. And Siri is fairly accurate on the Apple Watch, however it's not perfect.

Ok thanks. Yes siri is pretty good in terms of dictation but not perfect, hence needing to edit it prior to sending.

There isn't a way to edit it -- I think. I haven't tried yet. It's practically easier to hit cancel and then try again. It'd be harder to select a particular word and then either re-dictate it (out of context, probably) or Scribble in a correction.

This would be cool, or the ability to tap a word and say it again. If you dictate a whole sentence, it can be a bit frustrating having to say the whole thing again just because it got one word wrong. Specially if you're around other people
