Is anyone else having an issue with Siri on Apple Watch telling you that you do not have the timer app installed on your Apple Watch, when it is?

No, mine works fine. Not knowing how you say it though, I say "set an alarm for 2:15" or "set an alarm for 28 minutes." I heard a while back someone said it they mention "timer" Siri has a problem. Just an idea.

This has happened to me, although only once (so far). The watch DID nicely volunteer an option to "Install Timer" which I chose to ignore! It was one of many weird things lately that I've seen from watchOS 9.2… most Siri initiated. Other things have been the inability to control my garage door ("I'm working on that…") that happens more than I'd care for and a failure to load directions.

No problems with timer here. It is under you clock app.

say: ”Siri, set a 10 minute timer“. Works for me all the time.

Timer is different than an alarm.

Yes, occasionally seems to happen if watch loses connection to iPhone - When am in the kitchen where there is a weak signal.

Yeah maybe. They did add more Siri commands to run purely off the iPhone instead of calling out so maybe will with the watch in future.


They did. I believe it relies on the neural cores in the A12 and later processor. The S6, S7, and S8 are based on the A13 "little" cores, but I don't know if they have the neural cores present. I'm guessing not, but I have no idea.

If they do have those cores, then maybe it's something that might be coming sooner rather than later.
