Anyone find it annoying how you have to keep wrist raised while Siri is processing or Siri will cancel? Bit annoying as you should be able to raise your fist at a later point(10 seconds later or so) to view/see the Siri request
When my arms are free and I need siri, I prefer to hold & maintain the crown and release it when i'm done speaking, much faster than just long clicking the crown to activate, then dictate, then wait for the watch to detect you have finished speaking (especially in noisy environments).
On the other hand, when I'm too busy to use the crown, I use the "hey siri" trigger. Did you guys knew that you can also say "hey siri, bye" to exit Siri & go back to the app / watchface ? Works on iOs too.
One routine I have using this is :
2. "Hey Siri, ok" --> validates reminder
3. "Hey Siri, bye" --> return to watchface / app
I agree that it is annoying that you have to hold your arm up waiting for siri because sometimes she is slow to start translating your words and getting a response. You should be able to say your statement and put your arm down.
However, I really like siri on the watch and use it daily and there is no way it is faster to get the phone. Every day I am asking siri to set a reminder for me, turn on my alarm and set the time, set a timer. Just a little bit ago I was trying to decide if I needed shorts for golf tomorrow and I was in the closet and asked siri for the temperature tomorrow and had the response in 4 seconds.
