What would your reaction be if you were talking to someone else, and suddenly your smartwatch would interrupt you and correct your speech? Because it happened recently on a live broadcast on English television.
During a BBC News weather forecast, presenter and meteorologist Tomasz Schafernaker wore an Apple Watch on his wrist, and when he reported on the recent snowfalls in the Minneapolis and Denver regions of the United States, and the possibility of snow in the Europa, her smartwatch's virtual assistant, Siri, automatically activated to contradict the weather report.

After the curious affair, both the weatherman and the newscaster burst out laughing, and despite information coming from Siri, Tomasz reaffirmed his weather report, saying that Apple's virtual assistant might not know the right place she'd said earlier.
In his personal Twitter account, Tomasz said he never summoned Siri, and this was the first time she was activated on his Apple Watch.
Talking about the case, Apple Watch allows you to activate Siri in a variety of ways, such as pressing and holding the Digital Crown, or simply moving your wrist up and saying "Hey Siri."
From Apple Watch Series 3, just lift your wrist and start talking to Siri without having to say "Hey Siri" to activate it.
Apple calls this feature "Stand Up To Talk," and this option must have turned Siri on while Thomasz presented his weather report, as he gestured a lot as he spoke.
As a result, it is very likely that Thomasz Schafernaker will stop using his Apple Watch during his live reports and broadcasts for some time, thus preventing Siri from correcting him again.
