    So I noticed that when I’m driving, Siri does not work on my Apple Watch. It says there is no connection to Siri. Is this because my iPhone is already bluetoothed into my car or is it a safety feature? Does anyone else notice this?

    Disconnect your phone from the car BT and see what happens. I know that when my phone is connected to my car via BT, calls that come in are not displayed on the watch but I’m pretty sure I can use Siri on the watch when connected to BT.

    I have had Siri add items to my grocery list multiple times while driving with my phone paired to my SUV.

    I'm having the same problem after upgrading to the AW4. While my iPhone is connected via bluetooth or wifi (wireless CarPlay) using my AW sometime will just say, Siri can't connect using the iPhone or AW. I mostly use it to navigate music. Like "Siri, play playlist Beatles" things like that. Really frustrating as my AW3 worked well. I've tried resetting my AW several times, but it seems the problem always comes back.

    I disconnected and reconnected my phone to the car bluetooth. Now “hey Siri” works fine, but I still can’t get raise to speak to work at all. Maybe that feature stays inactive while driving for safety reasons?

    Wouldn't using the Siri button on the wheel be a little easier?

    While driving? Probably not...It’s beneficial and safer to be totally hands free off the watch and on the steering wheel.
