    Anyone else think it's odd they left this out? Even if it had basic Siri integration I would love to ask my watch where my wife is and for the map to be displayed. Seems like a very simple app.

    And then if she's anywhere but the kitchen, send an electric shock tap to her Apple Watch.

    You can share or send location using messages. That functionality is already built into iOS and Watch OS.

    Really? I know it's built into iOS but is it built in to Watch OS?

    I'm thinking you could just ask Siri the location of someone, like you currently can on the phone.

    I can honestly say Find My Friends is a function I have never, ever used.

    But I don't want to share my location in a text. I want to know where my friends are.

    Thank you for that valuable insight. I use it daily, YMMV.

    Have a kid or 2, you will then use it daily- sometimes hourly.

    Or if you need to time meals to when someone walks through the door - that's what it seems to be used for most in our household...

    lol @ the comments on this thread. OP asks about find my friends on watch and gets marital and family advice instead.
