If you decide that you no longer want the applications that you have installed on your Apple Watch, you can delete them in one of two easy methods once you have completed the installation process.

1. Simply press the Digital Crown to access the applications that are stored on your Apple Watch. If you are utilizing List View, then you will be presented with a list rather than a grid.

2. Locate the app that you wish to remove from your device. To reduce or increase the size of the app icons, you can either swivel the Digital Crown or use your finger to swipe around the face of the controller. If you are viewing the  content in List View, scroll all the way up and all the way down the list to locate the application you wish to delete.

3. When you can finally see the app you want to delete, tap and hold its icon (or its name in List View) until it begins to jiggle and a large X appears in the upper left-hand corner of the icon. At this point, you can delete the app. If you’ve ever removed apps from your iPhone or iPad in the past, this should look familiar to you.
