    you can disable "hey siri",
    on the watch itself (not the app on the phone),
    go to settings->general->siri

    can't find anyway to completely disable.
    Why are you trying to do this? maybe there's another way to accomplish.

    Well, disabling it would remedy that issue. Otherwise "Hey Siri" remains on in the background on his listening for your voice, which will degrade the battery.

    There is no Siri option in settings on 3.1.1

    I'm regretting updating that now as my battery has gone to *****

    The hey Siri feature is not what is killing your battery. Got to be something else.

    Siri seems to be activating by itself or when rubbing off my collar...a lot more than has ever happened before. Can't be helping the battery tbh.

    On the Watch itself -- not on the Watch app on the iPhone -- there is indeed a setting for "Hey Siri".

    Settings -> General -> Siri
    (attached picture)

    Which is only going to turn off "Hey Siri" anyway.

    The only other way Siri could be activated on the Watch would be if somehow the crown is somehow being held in for ~ 0.5s :/

    I wound up turning my watch around so the buttons were on the other side,

    Yes, there is a way to deactivate Siri. It's noted in a post above. And also, another forum member already mentioned you could change the orientation on your Apple Watch to prevent from the digital crown clicking when activating Siri.

    I solved the battery problem (I think)
    The modular watch face with carrot weather and a couple of other apps was draining the battery. Now, with the watch on 7 hours im at 88% - that's better.

    I like using Hey Siri for reminders; I still get great battery life.
