    I have a BIG problem setting alarms on my AW with Siri. If I say "wake me at x:x" or set the alarm for "x:x" I just get the text "setting the alarm..." for a while and the back to the watch face.

    I have noticed that sometimes it works if I say "Siri alarm" and the manually set an alarm and then do as I described. Not always but sometimes that works.

    Anyone have an idea of what can be wrong and how I can solve it? I have an AW2 with the latest iOS.

    Thanks!

    "hey siri wake me at 9" does exactly the same thing for me but "hey siri set an alarm for 9" works perfectly fine for me.

    There is a bug. If an alarm already exist then saying "wake me at X" will not work. Just say "set an alarm for X". That works every time regardless of whether one exists or not. I struggled with this for some time until I found this work around.

    So wake me up only works if the alarm don't excist already?

    Tried now and neither wake me or set alarm worked when I already had an alarm for that time on the watch but both worked if I didn't.

    Is that how the bug works?

    the latter should work fine. it does for me even with an existing alarm. @andylel 's explanation would explain why it worked one time for me with wake me but then stalled out each time afterwards.

    Yes. Exactly.
