Siri is considered to be one of the finest features of iOS. It doesn't matter whether you are using it on your iPhone or Apple Watch; Siri delivers the best results on all the Apple devices. Over the times, we have seen Siri improving a lot and enhancing the user experience but there are few problems too.
There have been reports that Siri is not working on Apple Watch according to the user commands. Well, the problems might be due to software or connection problems. Either the Apple Watch is not paired perfectly with iPhone or the network connection is weak. The microphone might turn out to be a problem if it's blocked. This will almost disable Siri because the voice cannot penetrate through the microphone anymore.
To fix such problems, check whether the Siri is switched on in the iPhone or not. Also ensure that the cellular or Wi-Fi network is properly connected to the iPhone and both the devices are paired with the same language (English is preferable.)
