Apple Watch: How to Remove Apps – The Complete Guide

You can always remove an app from Apple Watch without removing it from iPhone. Then, if you change your mind and decide to reinstall it, you can easily install it again.

How to Remove App From Apple Watch

If you do not want to keep an app on Apple Watch, you must work from the My Watch screen in the Apple Watch app on iPhone.

  • Press Home on iPhone to display the Home screen.
  • As the Home screen appears, tap the Apple Watch.
  • The Apple Watch app opens. Now tap My Watch.
  • On the My Watch screen tap the app you do not want to keep and want to uninstall.
  • When the screen for the apps appears, set Show App on Apple Watch switch to Off.
  • The Uninstalling readout will next appear while the Apple Watch app uninstalls the app from Apple Watch.
  • Tap My Watch and the My Watch screen will appear. You may want to uninstall another app and you can easily repeat the operation if necessary.
  • Note that some apps have Glances, but other apps do not have them. If an app has a Glance, you can prevent the Glance from appearing on Apple Watch by setting the Show in Glances switch to Off. You do not need to uninstall a particular app to disable its Glance.

A Few Apple Watch Apps

CARROT Weather: The popular sarcastic weather app CARROT Weather makes heavy use of color instead of graphics to tell you about the weather for the next hour, which creates a simple but informative UI. For example, if it’s raining or going to start raining soon, the text will be blue but if it’s sunny, the text will be yellow.

Dark Sky: Want to take the dog out for a walk but not too sure if it’s going to rain? Open up the Dark Sky app on your Apple Watch and it’ll let you know if it’s going to rain or snow in your location, up to an hour in advance. Alternatively, if it’s going to rain in your location, you’ll get a tap on the wrist and a notification displayed on your Apple Watch. You can also see a 24-hour timeline of weather conditions for today, tomorrow and even the next day.

Evernote: This app is a much more powerful note taking tool than Apple’s Notes. You can read all your most recent notes, and dictate new ones directly from your Apple Watch.

Green Kitchen: The Green Kitchen app allows easy access to dozens of healthy and organic vegetarian recipes, straight from your Apple Watch. Once you’ve found a recipe you like, it’ll be displayed on your iPhone ready for you to use. If there’s a step to your meal that requires a timer, a simple tap on your iPhone will start a timer on your Apple Watch. When the timer hits zero, you will get a notification through to your Apple Watch informing you.

Facebook: You can respond to friend requests or messages straight from your wrist. You’ll can also use the Digital Crown to scroll through your news feed and Like updates.

iTranslate: With this app you can speak a sentence in English and have it quickly converted into another language. It’s ideal if you’re learning a language, of course, but it’s also very handy if you just happen to be abroad and want a quick way to figure out how to say something.

Just Eat: The popular takeaway middle man Just Eat has thrown its hat into the Apple Watch ring, adding Apple Watch support to its app. Once you’ve ordered your takeaway using the iPhone app, your Apple Watch will give you updates on the delivery time of your order as well as directions to the takeaway and your order summary. It’s not exactly a game changer for Just Eat, but it does what the Apple Watch was built to do – stop you from looking at your phone every two minutes.

Google Maps: This app takes a completely different approach to Apple Maps on the Apple Watch. While Apple’s Maps app tries to do everything the full-sized app does on a smaller screen, Google Maps just gives you a list of directions to two places: Home or Work. It will ll require you to have both these places set up in the Google Maps app, but we prefer the way it focuses on simple directions to two important places.

Lifesum: Health and fitness play a key part of the Apple Watch experience, but running in the gym is only half the story, the other half is watching what you eat. Lifesum is a neat app that logs your meals. With the Apple Watch, you can quickly add items you regularly eat or generic calorie counts of meals. We found Lifesum to be a great way to keep track of calorie counts, and a seamless way to keep tabs on what you are eating.

Microsoft Translator: If you’re planning a holiday abroad or travel a lot for work, then the chances are that you’re going to come in contact with another language. However, if you have an Apple Watch, you just need to download the Microsoft Translator app. The app lets you speak to get translations from over 50 languages, including French, Spanish, Italian and Dutch. It’s free to download and use.
