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.
If you are reading this article, you will probably want to use “Delete Workout and Data”. Once you tap it, the workout is over for good and the deletion will sync back to your Apple Watch.
How to remove a workout from the Health app
Open the Apple Health app, scroll to the bottom of your “Favorites,” tap “View all health data,” then select “Workouts.”
Scroll down and tap “Show all data.”
Swipe left on the workout you want to delete and tap “Delete.”
Then select “Delete workout and data” or “Delete workout only”. You will probably want to “Delete workout and data”.
The workout will be deleted and the changes will sync to your Apple Watch.
