    So I followed everyone's advice after I bought my Apple Watch series 3 LTE yesterday and was complaining that Siri's voice was not working. I updated to 4.0.1 and then left my phone on, connected to wifi over night while it sat on the charger.

    I woke up this morning and tested Siri and still no voice. The watch, phone are not on mute. Siri is "on" when I go into settings<general.

    Should I take the watch back and exchange it or wait?

    I would appreciate any advice!

    You need to download Siri to the watch.

    I thought Siri automatically downloaded while it was left on the charger and connected to wifi?

    I had to switch Siri off and on again to see the download in progress bit at the bottom in the settings...

    Yeah, I switched that off on on... Actually, I also changed the Siri voice to 'male' on the phone and back again, so that may have kicked things off on the watch too?

    I would unpair and re-set it up before bringing back.

    Make sure you don’t have the silence feature on. I was also wondering why mine wouldn’t say anything then realized I had to turn silence off

    Mine just works out of the box. I never did anything special except the .01 update the other day.

    Has anyone realize that using Hey Siri to invoke Siri the volume gets lower then pressing Digital Crown?
