    Has anyone worked out how to do this? Seems enabled in settings but not working for me? Using 'Hey Siri' works fine but not without.

    If you raise the watch up near your mouth from your side or while sitting and speak to the watch it works. The screen turns on and then Siri shows up.

    So we can all agree that this functionality is not yet working - obviously a future beta release!

    What if you are speaking to someone in person and you ask them a question. Right before you ask, you raise your watch to see what time it is. Does Siri take it as if you have asked her?

    On the watch it’s in Settings > General > Siri

    But it’s still not functional for me on Beta 2 on LTE Series 3 either.

    In wOS 4 you MUST say Hey Siri. In wOS 5 you don't have to say Hey Siri. You just start talking.

    wOS 4: Hey Siri what is the weather like?
    wOS 5 What is the weather like?

    When you raise the watch it is listening and so you simply ask your question ‘what time is it in Moscow’

    It suddenly started working for me in beta 2 also. First when I tested I couldnt get it to work, but yesterday I triggered it by accident and since then it kept on working flawlessly. Very handy feature!

    How weird - could it be enabled in the back end by Apple o_O may be not a new beta release item
