How to add and remove apps on your Apple Watch

  • Like the iPhone, Apple Watches come pre-loaded with set apps, including Activity (the app that tracks your progress toward daily, weekly, and monthly move, stand, and exercise goals), Breathe (a mindfulness app), Calendar (peek at events scheduled for the day and week ahead), and Messages (read and respond to texts without having to take out your phone).
  • But in the remaining space you have available, you'll likely want to add apps that don't come with the Apple Watch automatically.
  • Beyond the default apps, you can add additional apps manually or have compatible iPhone apps automatically installed by turning on Automatic App Install on your iPhone's Watch app.
  • To add new apps outside of what's already installed on your iPhone, head to the App Store tab in your iPhone's Watch app.
