    i just picked up an AW2 today, and made use of 'hey siri'. After a few hours it stopped working. I tried everything, including re-pairing, but it never worked again. Managed to fix problem by doing a complete erase and setting up as a new watch. Again, it worked for a couple of hours but has now stopped working again.

    Any ideas?

    To be clear - it works if I hold the Digital Crown, but just using the hey Siri command upon waking does nothing. I really don't want to erase everything and start from scratch for the second time in a day!

    My Hey Siri stopped working on an original AW after the OS upgrade. I also can't find any Siri settings in the phone app. Still works with the button.

    From the above link:
    1. Check the Internet connection on your Apple Watch.
    2. On your iPhone, see if Siri is turned on. Tap Settings > Siri. Your Apple Watch mirrors your iPhone, so you don’t need to check your watch.
    3. On your Apple Watch, see if Hey Siri is turned on. Tap Settings > General > Siri.
    4. Restart your Apple Watch.
    5. On your iPhone, go to Settings > Siri and turn off Siri. Then turn it on again.
    6. See if the microphone on your Apple Watch is blocked. For example, if your device has a protective case, remove it.
