    Anybody know if this app will be on the watch?
    If not, what other apps will it not have? Thanks!

    Hopefully it does. It seems so obvious to have on the watch since it's so convient to use for that.

    Evernote will have an app for the watch that includes a dictation feature.

    I think the OP meant something that records audio into a wav or AAC or something. Both features sound sweet though.

    Evernote has that feature. Not sure it will be included in the Watch extension though. You might wanna move all your audio notes to iPhone real fast because of limited space.

    If it was, wouldn't you think Apple would prominently feature it on their site?

    Yeah, I use my iphone to voice record. Wondering if the watch will have it and other apps I used frequently, if not, I'm not buying it.


    I was looking for it on their site, but didn't see it.
    If this is true, its not for me.
    I'll keep wearing my Seiko Titanium.

    Check out Braintoss. It is amazing and will have a watch app when the watch comes out. Once you set it up you just hit the start button and say your message. It then automatically emails you the text and a voice recording of whatever you said. This is great for those of us who use our emails as reminders.

    I had never heard of it until a few weeks back when I saw it as an upcoming watch app. My husband and I are already hooked. VERY Handy.

    PS: Yes I know note apps can be better but I do not have enough tasks to get used to looking there for what I need to remember.

    (As a quick aside that is semi related, you can add reminders to your default Reminders list using Siri). Not exactly what the OP is discussing but still handy.

    Tried Braintoss - works fine from phone but from Watch, emails do not send :oops:
    It's a shame because I liked the app but like so many other Apple Watch parts of apps, many just don't work (which is the reason I bought them)

    Just one thing: Wait for Watch OS 2.0

    Watch OS 1.0 doesn't give apps access to all of the hardware (in this case, the microphone). Reason why there are currently no voice memo recorders on the Appstore.

    There are several 3rd party apps currently available to record voice memos via the watch, using its microphone, and the list grows on a near daily basis. You can run a search for
    voice memo
    at http://watchaware.com/watch-apps to learn particulars per app.

    When I am doing quality control in the field I use the iPhone with a voice recorder app. If I am driving down the road and need to remember something for later, I get Siri to set me an alarm. "Hey Siri" works very well for me!
