so Siri shortcuts flat out doesn’t work on my series 3 watch on watchOS 5. Everytime I ask a trigger phrase, I just get the response in the attached image.

Anyone getting this or have any ideas? I’ve set up half a dozen shortcuts that all work on my phone and HomePod, but none work on my watch.

Same here. They work intermittently for me.

Which ones have you managed to get working with your HomePod?

I’ve not got any to work with it so far.

Carrot Weather - “Hey Siri, weather report.” works for me on My Series 2 with watchOS 5. Displays weather info, but doesn’t read it. Not sure if Siri should do this.

This guy says that he helped design the original workflow app and is going to be uploading tutorial videos on how to use the shortcuts app.

I think it’s only on the series 3 that Siri can speak to you.

Exact same issue here with my Series 3. I made a simple shortcut that only displays a notification and still get the "I do not recognize that command". I have restarted my watch and phone with no luck.
