OK, i am using it now since last night. Maybe my life is boring, but it just shows ONE News article once every several hours...and that’s it. I know that it is beta, but is it supposed to be more exciting??

Yes, but I’m only because it’s pretty
Find it pretty useless, only tells me weather (don’t care for) to breathe (don’t care for) and news (usually Trump stuff, again, don’t care for)

I think it will get better when third party apps gain access to it.

I really like Siri watch face. Way better than calender and way more relevant even if it's in beta. I'd love to see mail integrated with it though...

Yeah, still using the Siri face...it’s pretty cool that it gives weather updates ahead of time. Decent, but still waiting for more “smart” features.

I like how Siri watch-face gives med Apple News with actual norwegian content on my watch, all while Apple News itself is nowhere to be seen on iOS here in Norway.
Try adding the News widget. I've been getting Norwegian content for a while.

What are you expecting from the Siri face?

From the keynote, I thought it was essentially a watch face version of Up Next, with calendar appointment times and locations, alarms, sunsets etc. My impression was it's up to the person to be putting this info into the phone for the Siri face to be useful?

Yeah, i guess so. I was hoping that it will tell me traffic conditions to work / home...but it does not.

I see it like For You section in Apple Music, in that the more I use (like) it (song) the more they know me and will present what will be useful for me. Isn't that the case?

A lot of this stuff will be somewhat limited during the beta period. You may see more "machine learning" capabilities occurring after the general iOS 11 release in September.

Well if you have like 13 calendar entries and occasional timed reminders set up with Apple’s apps, it’s quite neat – you can check like 2 up next things at your glance, and easily check what’s up next using the Digital Crown, whether that’s from calendar or reminder.

Plus. Let’s say you’ll see some rain at 5PM: Siri face reminds you about this around 5.

I wish we could have some more customisation on the Siri Watch-face. I do like it, and I like how reminders, calendar events, weather etc shows automatically when relevant etc.. But not having any kinds of options to show the current status of my activity rings just kills it for me.
