    I was having weird problems with Siri on the watch and reminder creation. I bit the bullet and unpaired/repaired and restored from backup today.

    Siri reminder functionality has been completely restored, except, when I ask Siri to remind me X when I get to or when I leave Y. It creates the reminder, but then appears to have no location attached.

    When I look on it has the reminder but says "Arriving:Null"

    When I look on the iPhone app it has it as a location based reminder but the location is undefined.

    Any ideas?

    Do I have to really unpair it again to try and resolve this? Should I just wait for watch OS2.x?

    Ok, so I did some more testing and Siri on Apple Watch sets location based reminders perfectly when I say remind me to X when I leave here.

    The problem appears to be that it can't see what my work/home locations are in my contact on my iPhone. When I look at the contact entry on my Watch for myself it lists work and home at the bottom, but it doesn't say anything next to the categories and clicking on the category does nothing.

    Any ideas how to get the Watch app to see addresses, etc.?

    I changed something in my contact card on iPhone and, checked back on the Watch and my work and home addresses were listed!

    Siri and location based reminders now works correctly. Repairing did the trick with a little nudge to properly sync things over. Wow, hopefully the first update clears up these bugs.
