    On watchOS 2 when I use Siri to dictate an SMS there is no obvious way to send the message. On watchOS 1 I remember there being a send button or something similar to press after Siri was done composing my message. On watchOS 2 there's only a "Don't send" button. After about a minute the SMS automatically sends. Surely there must be a way to send it once I am done dictating, right?

    What am I missing?

    Found the answer myself. Apparently if you lower your wrist Siri sends the SMS. That's one less interaction with the screen required which is a great thing.

    Following up my own post; I tried lowering my wrist and it had no effect. The message seems to get pushed out atfter a random delay. I find this very odd. Give me a send button.

    If you need it to send immediately (I rarely do) you can just follow up with "hey siri, send it".

    I was having this issue with my notification. I'd get an SMS, and then in the notification it would only give me one button with the option to dismiss, not reply.

    I can confirm pushing the crown sends it immediately. Thanks Butch11.

    I'm a total noob...just got the BSSS...so I can't fully enjoy until I get more familiarized but trying.

    after pressing reply...and select siri mic and when done, pressing crown just cancels it and does not send the message? what am I doing wrong?

    This applies only when creating a message via Siri, not when replying.
