Delete and redownload default apps on an Apple Watch

The Apple Watch has a lot of applications as standard, such as apps such as Stopwatch, Breathing, Cycle, etc. You may not use all Apple applications, so you can remove some standard apps from your Watch.

Just like the standard application on your iPhone or iPad, the apps are not completely deleted from the smart watch, but hidden. However, the shortcut and any user data will be deleted. Of course you can always reinstall the applications afterwards via the Watch App Store.

Remove default apps from Apple Watch

  • Navigate to the app overview
  • Put your finger on an app of your choice (don’t press)
  • Wait a few moments and choose ‘Change apps’
  • Tap the cross above the app to delete it
  • Confirm the deletion in the pop-up window
  • The application will be hidden and partially deleted

Unfortunately you can’t hide all default apps, for now it’s only about the apps: Walkie-Talkie, ECG, Cycle, Current, Remote, Sound, Timer, Camera, Alarm Clocks, Mindfulness, Saturation, Search Objects, Search People, Memoji, Tips, Contacts, Sleep, Stopwatch and Radio.

Apps will not be completely erased

If you want to free up storage space by deleting the default apps, you’ll be more or less disappointed. Just like in iOS, it is impossible to completely remove the applications from your device. This is because they are part of watchOS. Suppose they were completely removed, then in theory Apple should provide you with a personal update without the deleted apps.

This is technically not feasible because every watchOS update is provided with a secure (digital) signature. For that reason, the components, albeit hidden, remain present. However, the shortcut in the app overview will be hidden and all your personal data in the app will be deleted.

Reinstall Apple Watch default apps

You can reinstall the standard apps afterwards via the Watch App Store. Open the Apple Watch App Store app, search for the default app and download it again. After installing you can use the app again.

If that doesn’t work, it’s best to search for ‘Apple’. Open the Apple Store app as found, scroll down to Developer and tap Apple. Then all Apple apps will appear and you can download them again.
