Using the Watch App - Speak Measurements

(Select your language using the flags below if required)


  • Speak lets you use your voice to easily dictate measurements into the Apple Health database. Its as easy as speaking into your Watch, and the values will then appear in your iPhone. Measurement examples include:

    • Weight: Say "ninety two point five kilograms" or "two hundred and three pounds".

    • Blood Pressure: Say "one twenty over eighty".

    • Body Temperature: Say "ninety eight point six degrees" or "thirty seven degrees". This will auto determine Fahrenheit or Celsius.

    • Blood Sugar: Say "Sugar seventy" or "Sugar five point one". This will auto determine mg/dl or mmol/L.

    • Caffeine: Say "Fifty milligrams caffeine".

    • Body Fat: Say "fifteen percent".

    • Waist Size: Speak for waist size. e.g. "100cm" "37 inches"

    • SpO2: say "ninety seven percent blood oxygen" and it should recognise as a SpO2 measure
