How to Delete Watch Faces from Apple Watch

As far as aesthetics are concerned, outside of the strap you choose, the watch face on your Apple Watch reflects the most about your personality. That is why it is slightly disappointing that Apple does not allow third party watch faces on the Apple Watch. However, the company does ship a lot of watch faces by default so there’s usually something that will meet your style needs. In my usage I have found that after a few days of tinkering with the watch faces, you settle down on 2-3 of your favourites. So, why not delete the rest and get rid of the clutter, right? Well, here is how to delete watch faces from Apple Watch:

There are two ways you can delete watch faces from the Apple Watch. You can either go through the Watch app on your iPhone, or you can delete the faces straight from your watch itself. Let’s take a look at both options and you can use whichever one seems best to you.

Delete Watch Faces Directly from the Watch

Here is how you can directly delete a watch face without using your iPhone:

  • On your Apple Watch, firmly press the screen to head into the watch-faces carousel.

Manage Apple Watch Watch Faces with Ease

It’s great to have choices in watch faces, but choosing your favourite 2 or 3 watch faces and only keeping those on your watch is better because you can quickly switch between them when you want to, without having to look through an entire list of 10-15 watch faces (depending on how many you have installed on your watch). Plus with just a couple of watch faces, you can quickly swipe left or right on the home screen itself to switch between them, which makes the process even faster. So go ahead and delete all the watch faces you never use on your Apple Watch.
