Unlike installing apps, removing apps from Apple Watch doesn’t require your iPhone. You can delete any app directly from your iWatch. Before you get rid of any Apple Watch app, it is advisable to use list view instead of grid view on your watch. This will give you a better user interface to delete apps from Apple Watch.
When you uninstall Apple watch app using the grid view, you may tap on a different app other than the one you actually wish to remove from your watch. When you install an app on your iPhone, the app will be seen automatically on your watch. Similarly, if you uninstall any app from your iPhone, your watch will stop showing that app. When you hide any app on your Apple Watch, you can easily make it available with a single toggle. I would advise my reader to hide or uninstall the app from iWatch so that they can use them in future without downloading that app from an App Store.
