I use the watch for swimming, last week, all fine and tracks lengths etc. I downloaded some apps - white light, remote camera and find my car. Now when I swim the watch talks to me ! telling me  strokes, lengths,  total swim time.

Its very disconcerting as the speaker throws out water and the sound isnt great due to being wet.

Anyone know how I can turn off the voice ?

Ive unimstalled the apps - no difference.

Maybe reset ??

thanks

@sharenslz: This sounds like it may be a Text to Speech issue. To check, please go to Settings > Accessibility > Text-To-Speech > Off (if applicable). Let me know how you get on.

Accessibility is in between 'Account' and General' in the Settings, @sharenslz.

I hate this feature so much too. I've only just found out how to turn it off. You have to go into the health app, select the exercise thats giving you feedback and when you do you'll see 3 dots top right. Select it and first option is Audio Guide. Turn that off and you'll be free of the stupid voice that blasts info at everyone but you from your wrist while you've got headphones one.
