As Apple Watch has merely 8GB of internal storage, you would have to keep it cleaned up; making sure you don’t install too many apps on it. Moreover, the tiny size of the Apple Watch Home screen wouldn’t look nice if you have not organized apps properly on it.

You can delete unnecessary apps to prevent your Watch from being cluttered for space. In addition, you can also hide some of the apps if you don’t want to remove them completely. Even if you delete an app from your Apple Watch, it remains on your iPhone unless you decide to remove it from iPhone too. Therefore, you don’t need to worry about losing it completely.
