Apple Watch ultra action button for voice memo toggle

Hi there. Am I going mad or is there no way to program the ultras action button to start and stop a voice memo recording? Without having to press a record button on screen? Tried shortcuts but no luck!?? Thanks

Help, anyone?

I bought this watch solely for this purposeā€¦ well not solely, but still.

Maybe using shortcuts

Tried that but no luck - always requires a few more presses on screen - not ideal when trying to ride your bike!!

As far as I can tell, shortcuts are the only way to do something like this with the action button, but as you mentioned it does require a few extra taps. One of the reasons (amongst a few others) that I ended up returning the Ultra even though I was pretty impressed with the display + battery life.
