    when I hold the crown to activate Siri, it goes to the “sorry I couldn’t hear u” text within 1 second of activating Siri. It doesn’t even allow me to speak at first attempt so I have to click the crown again and try a few times.

    Am I doing something wrong? Do I hold the crown n speak or what?

    Just press for a second until siri comes up, then let go. Or set up “hey siri”, that’s my preferred.

    Push and release before speaking. You do NOT hold.

    Sounds like you're holding the crown too long before letting go to talk. Either let it go the instant Siri is invoked, or hold it the entire time you're talking to it. Anything in between that will elicit the response you're getting. Or just use Hey Siri ______________ with no delay after you say Hey Siri. Give your whole command in one line. If you're having the same problem with Hey Siri something else is wrong.

    Something else is definitely wrong because I let go of the crown the second I see the Siri thing.

    On AW3 LTE, I can’t say it like that. I can consistently on my iPhone 7, but on watch, I have to pause after “hey siri”, until she comes up. Otherwise it doesn’t work every time. I’d guess about half the time I can run it all together, but the other half, Siri completely misses... so now I pause.

    You know what, I think I MIGHT have figured it out...I think Siri is hearing the really low level music in the background and thinking it’s me talking.

    Did you try turning it off and restarting?
    Give it a few minutes after it restarts to get everything loaded before trying.

    This thing is definitely stupid.

    She says what do u want to say? But never shows the Siri activated crap. So I have to press it again.

    Takes 15 tries to send 1 Text. She keeps shutting herself off. Sick of this

    And why does it say “okay I’ll send this” and it doesn’t auto send it gives me the “don’t send” option and dumb screen just stays on that screen for 1 min and sends it with 1 min delays.

    You got to be doing something wrong. I use Siri all the time to send texts and hardly ever have an issue. I do have a pretty quite car and do turn the music down but it works very well.

    When she says "okay Ill send it" it means she's going to send it. The don't send button is there in case she misunderstood you and made a mistake, so you can cancel the text.

    As for your other problem, it sounds to me like you may have some other issue going on. Have you given apple a call? If not I would recommend that as your next course of action. Siri should not be giving you such a hard time.

    This is so you have time to reject it, or you can just leave it. To send it immediately, I just press the Digital Crown.
