Siri on Apple Watch Series 6 and OS 7

watchOS & Apple Watch Apps

I am having a strange problem with Siri on my apple watch. I see that the Siri voice is turned on in the phone watch app, but when I go to settings on my watch itself, it says turned off. I try to turn it on, but it defaults back to off. Any ideas of what I'm doing wrong? I'd love to change my voice to Siri male if I can. I also saw something about it being downloaded to the watch, but I have never seen anything that tells me to download it. I guess I'm a little confused.

I'm also having this problem too since I upgrade to the Apple Watch 6. It changed to it fine on my old 4, but my 6 is doing exactly the same thing. I thought at first it was because I hadn't downloaded the voices, because if I go in to siri settings, it asks me to download them and then claims it has, but then if I go out and back in again, it tries to start downloading the voices again like it never downloaded them in the first place, so I found out that couldn't have been the problem. I hope it's just a bug that might be fixed in the next update.

So I also noticed another problem. I thought watchOS7 was supposed to have braille options. Not only will the Siri voice not work, but my braille options are not there.

This is my first Apple Watch, so I don't know how it worked before. I expected Siri voice from my watch, i get Daniel instead!
