    I'll start it off:

    "Hey Siri... End my workout"

    <Transcription> "and my workout"

    So frustrating! Tried 6 times or so.... No avail.

    Also, why can't you see the time while you're recording a workout!? Craziness.

    I am with you on not being able to see the time while doing a workout... and anything else. It is a watch. So the time should be something fixed on all screens... or at least an easy swipe to it and swipe back.

    As for Siri... she's definitely got a few issues from time to time.

    In the category of "if I hadn't seen if for myself I wouldn't believe it.... Siri on my iPhone 6 Plus... a feature I turned OFF immediately right out of the box... still offers random suggestions on a variety of topics.

    If nothing else I get the best laugh out of the gadget based Siri.
    Apple... what an imagination :D

    In the mail app, if you say: "Hey Siri remind me about this tomorrow"
    She won't understand that you want her to remind you about the e-mail;

    But if you say "Hey Siri remind me about this e-mail tomorrow"
    She magically understands what you say.


    Edit: I thought I was in the iPhone forum. Sorry.

    Time of day???. You can display this in the top metric.

    On displaying the current time of day while working out: just touch the "time" in the top of the workout screen to toggle it between several display options including the current time.

    My beef is with the Workout layout, I'd really like all metrics available in any of the slots so I don't have to constantly swipe between workout time and heart rate.

    You don't have to swap between workout time and heart rate... just touch the time "area" to toggle between different times available and pick workout time... then swipe to heart rate. Both will be available at the same time...

    Sorry I meant I want to see distance, workout time, and heart rate on the same screen (this isn't possible since users aren't allowed to change the middle metric).

    Yeah - that would be nice. There is plenty of screen real-estate...

    "What are the hours for _____" or "when is ____ open" It takes me to maps, but that's it.

    EDIT: never mind. I'm just too impatient

    "Get directions / drive to my next appointment."

    I think I ended up doing the same thing you did. I was able to get the get directions to work. It just takes a while to load. Drive to my next appointment took me to calendar where I could tap on an address

    I discovered one... I was running today and listing to music. I asked Siri to increase the volume. She told me she could not do that. Loser.
