Dictation in the wild

dictation

#1

Just wondering if it is possible to “walk and dictate” at the same time while using the dictation feature on the watch app? Or…should the user remain still while attempting this feature?

Depends on what you are trying to grab. Dictation on watchOS is pretty limited and best for grabbing short snippets up to about 30-40 seconds. It will timeout and throw away the dictation results if the watch goes to sleep - so you have to hold your wrist up and talk to it.

If you envisioning just dictating a long memo while taking a mile hike, I would say the answer is no.

These are not Drafts limitation, but watchOS level.
