Apple Watch gets a face-lift with better Siri integration

Smartwatches
We're making some great enhancements to the Siri watch face now. First, we're adding new content. So now you can get live sports scores, you can get commute time home or to work. Or you can see your heart rate, for example, after a workout or your resting heart rate. And we're also adding Siri shortcuts. So shortcuts you saw coming to iOS 12 are also going to be available in Watch OS. So in addition to getting relevant information, you'll also receive predicted shortcuts right on the Siri watch face. So at a wrist race, you'll be able to directly do things like turn on your living home scene or start an outdoor walk or play your favorite morning playlist and these shortcuts appear based on whether you typically do those actions at those times. So super easy now to just tap and do these actions Also for the first time you can now use third party apps on the Siri watch face. So, now you can see both relevant content and shortcuts of your favorite apps. [APPLAUSE] [APPLAUSE] So if you always go running with Nike+ Run Club at a certain time, or you're logging your meals with Lose it!, or you use Citymapper to find your commute home, you just raise your wrist, and tap, it's that easy. So new content, support for shortcuts and third-party apps, making for an even more powerful Siri watch face. Now currently, to talk to Siri, you raise your wrist and you say, hey, Siri. And when you think about this, it's quite a strong signal when you raise your wrist and talk to your watch. It's kind of like when someone's standing right in front of you, you don't need to say hey cuz you have their attention already. So we're bringing this same social cue to Siri on the watch. So you no longer need to say hey Siri, you just raise your wrist and talk to Siri.
