    So far loving my new AW2...I have a question though on dictating messages. It seems like when I use Siri to dictate a message there is no "Send" button. I discovered that I can send the message by pressing the crown. However, if I send a message using the message app I have to hit the "Send" button...pressing the crown just brings me back to the home screen. Am I missing something?

    Also, when dictating a message using Siri is there any way to activate the microphone without hitting the microphone icon? Would be nice if this were a truly hands free experience.

    I'm sure Siri sends it automatically unless you select the don't send option.

    Yes, if you don't press anything after a minute or so Siri will send the message. It's faster just to press the crown though. My comment was more how with Siri you have to press the crown to send (or do nothing) and with the messages app you have to hit the Send button. A few times now I've been in the messages app and hit the crown by mistake, only to have it go to the home screen.
