What quick responses do you use in messages?

    My most used are two of my custom replies:

    1. Sounds good
    2. I love you too!

    I don't really like "OK" in all caps like that... it's a bit like yelling and somewhat off-putting. "Sounds good" is something I use a lot more in the "real world"... it's a bit more affirmative.

    "I love you too!" is pretty obvious ;-) My wife sends me little texts all day... and sometimes it's handy to have a quick response for them ;-)

    Until you asked this question, I didn't realize how little I used the quick responses. In fact, I couldn't even tell you the last time I used one. I typically just pull out my phone :-/

    Maybe I just don't receive messages for which quick responses are appropriate.

    It's my fault but I guess to reword the question I'd ask what custom ones do you use?

    I'm a pretty wordy person, so even the custom ones aren't enough for me. 90% of the time I just use one that says "Very good" for people know I have a Watch and understand that basically means "Message acknowledged; not near my phone right now, so expect more detail later."

    I've used the yes/no/or-answer a few times, but generally the brevity and scarcity of responses available with the Watch limits that function for me. For me, the usefulness of the Watch is more about making sure I get messages rather than send them.

    I've used the dictate function a fair bit, though, and it's useful for when you need to be hands-free.

    One of the most useful ones I've added is "I'm Driving". It will usually make the person stop texting or call me (which is fine).

    It's getting later honey.

    Yes, I'm still at work. Don't wait for me.

    Waiting for data, can't leave work.

    Yes, i'll bring toilet paper.

    No, these aren't actually my quick responses. Those are private.

    I'm on my way and OK are the only two canned responses I use & to my husband. Whilst working at home I use the dictation all the time - far too embarrassed otherwise...

    They mostly have to do with responding to friends inviting me to do stuff:

    1) When?
    2) Who's going?
    3) Can't tonight.
    4) Sounds good.

    I also replaced "OK" with "Okay" and "Sure!" with "Sure", because when does anyone ever say sure with the enthusiasm of an exclamation point?

    6) Hello

    On the plus side, iOS 9 allows like 15 more custom default replies. Adding some now!

    Even though I can have like 20, watch OS 1.0.1 only shows the first 6. Darn it!
