Does anyone else find that Siri randomly activates when water is running from a tap? Happens to me mostly when rinsing dishes, or am I alone on this one?

Yes. My Apple Watch does this all the time. Every time I turn on the tap water, Siri pops up. A bit annoying.

Mine does too on my S6. It’s a bit annoying especially during the pandemic with needing to wash hands often.

That is why I turned off „Hey Siri“, but in my case she decided to join in occasionally when I was watching TV

Well since both my wife and I have upgraded to the new (2020) watches this is happening all the time, whenever we wash the dishes with running water (and no not accidentally touching the crown) Siri starts - it is really annoying - Siri is getting more and more sensitive

My series 4 did that and now my brand new series 6 is doing it too. Not touching anything - wearing it on my left wrist and using my right hand (not moving my left wrist at all). Suuuper annoying.

I get this constantly too. Also when it's near a venting pressure cooker. Seems quite dumb that it knows I'm washing my hands enough to start the hand washing timer, but still thinks "yeah, maybe he's simultaneously trying to say hey Siri" 🙄

Happens to me constantly and also while frying stuff.

Which is super annoying when cooking as I usually have a timer on the watch and Siri keeps taking over the screen.
