    Didn't they teach you English in school?


    They did but it's more convenient to use Siri in your native language. Besides, many native english speakers have issues with Siri because she often misinterprets words.

    I feel it's also important to mention that you look ridiculous talking to watch in foreign language in the crowd or on the bus. The feeling is much, much worse if aforementioned device has issues understanding you due to your accent.

    To speak more widely on the Apple watch. Without better energy storage battery technology - this sort of consumer tech will forever have its hands cuffed behind its back.

    1st country with Apple Watch and no Polish Siri :D like a joke

    ...Does it come with a free toaster in Poland?

    Your are not missing anything. Whatever I tell Siri in English doesn't work, might as well be Polish.

    They did, so now we are all bi-lingual, in fact they also gave us a third one.
    Just to rub it in...
    Still, to the majority of Apple's customers english is not their first language.
    Given that, it does make sense, to some of us at least, to actually broaden Siri's language skills.
    Wouldn't you agree?

    Does this mean that Siri will also be available in these new languages?

    Not much use using Apple Watch without Siri.

    Right now Siri doesn't work in Finnish, which is my native language.
