A weatherman in a BBC broadcasting session was interrupted by his Apple Watch while delivering his forecast on-air, with Siri stating the opposite of what he said.
As Tomasz Schafernaker, the BBC meteorologist was confirming that there will be snow in the US and possibly in Europe, the Apple Watch Siri suddenly blurted out that there wasn’t any forecast of snow.
The anchor then quickly recovered and said that although Siri may not have any possibility of snow in her forecast, the Apple assistant may not be aware of what places Schafernaker was saying.
The BBC anchor went to Twitter following the incident and mentioned that he didn’t intentionally trigger Siri.
In theory, several things may have led to the activation of the digital assistant on the Apple Watch. The meteorologist may have prompted Siri by raising his arm, through the digital crown or misspoke the ‘Hey, Siri’ command.
