Siri on Apple Watch is a match made in heaven. Just like on your iPhone, Apple Watch can perform a variety of tasks with Siri to help you manage your day, keep up with your friends, set up important meetings, or just relax.
Unfortunately, not all third-party apps have Siri compatibility, but there are some very useful apps that Siri can communicate with. Here are our favorite Apple Watch apps with Siri integration.
Todoist is one of the best to-do apps on iOS and Mac, and the Apple Watch version is just as awesome. It works with IFTTT for hundreds of different task-managing options, which frankly makes it the best to-do app for my needs. You can connect it to Google Calendar, weather, and more.
Todoist will help you keep track of any task, and with the help of Siri, you can simply ask your Apple Watch what you need to get done next, add new tasks, and even search for certain tasks.
RunGO is a fantastic app for runners, and that makes it super useful on the Apple Watch.
RunGo lets you plot a course for your run and then gives you turn-by-turn directions, so you never have to think about where you’re going during your workout. You can also choose from over 80,000 pre-designed routes in a lot of major cities across the U.S.
WIth Siri, you can start your route with just your voice, and even change courses in the middle of the run if you want a change of scenery.
If you love listening to podcasts, then you need to grab Overcast. This powerful podcast player has great features like Smart Speed, Voice Boost, and Smart Playlists so you can customize your podcast listening experience just for your needs.
The Apple Watch app also has Siri fully integrated, so you can do a lot of things with just your voice. You can play and pause your podcasts, seek out specific chapters, change playback speed, activate a sleep timer, and more. Podcast listening has never been easier thanks to Overcast and Siri!
HomeRun for HomeKit
If you have a lot of HomeKit accessories at home, then HomeRun is a hit.
HomeRun allows you to create grids of your scenes, so that they’re always within reach. Plus, thanks to the grid format, it’s easier to remember where your favorite scenes are. You can also run scenes completely from just your Apple Watch, which is nice.
The Siri integration with HomeRun comes in the form of a daily routine for the Siri Watch Face option. With a Daily Routine, you can have Siri suggest your routines during certain parts of the day, eliminating the need to manually do it yourself.
Nike Run Club
Love to run and get some exercise? Then Nike Run Club could be your new best friend.
Nike Run Club has all of the tools you’ll need to run better: GPS run tracking, audio guided runs, distance challenges, custom coaching plans for your own goals, and nonstop motivation from friends.
There is now Siri integration in the form of Siri Suggestions, so Siri can give you some good times for a run based on your previous runs. This feature is off by default, so you’ll need to turn it on (they don’t want to nag you if you don’t want it). There is also Siri integration for starting, pausing, resuming, and ending your workout, as well as Run QuickStart.
While keeping track of your busy schedule isn’t always fun, Fantastical 2 makes the experience a little more…fantastic, so to speak.
Fantastical 2 is my calendar app of choice on iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple Watch. On iOS and Mac, it has a gorgeous interface that I love to look at every day, and the natural language parser works magnificently when it comes to creating new events and reminders. On the Apple Watch, having the complication on my Modular watch face lets me easily see what events are coming up that I need to get ready for.
The Siri integration lets you add new events and reminders with just your voice, and you can go even further with support for the Siri Watch Face option. Fantastical 2 also makes use of Siri Shortcuts, so you can customize it to work with your own needs.
