Have you ever accidentally saved a workout on your Apple Watch or ended up with a duplicate that you want to delete? Well, strangely enough, you can’t delete a workout from your watch; you have to use your iPhone to do this. Here’s how.

How to remove a workout from the Activities app

Open the Activities app and go to the “Workouts” tab. Although you can see a list of your workouts in the History tab, you cannot delete one.

Swipe left on the workout you want to delete and tap “Delete.” Next, tap “Delete Workout and Data” if you want it deleted from Apple Health as well, or “Delete Workout Only” if you just want it deleted from the Activities app.
