Apple Watch can help you keep track of any workout or activity you do and helps record crucial data through apps like Activity and Health. However, sometimes one might accidentally record a workout or have a duplicate workout stored in the app.
In situations like these, there is an easy way to get rid of that data from your record to avoid confusion; you can erase this data using your iPhone but not directly from your Apple Watch.
If old workouts are cluttering your records or you want to delete a particular workout data, here is how to delete workout on Apple Watch.
How to delete a workout from the Activity app?
Launch the Activity/Fitness application on your iPhone. You will see a list of workouts in the history tab. However, you cannot remove the workout from there. For that, tap on the Workouts tab located at the bottom of the screen.
Please note, you will only see the workouts tab once you have enough data stored in the Activity app to predict your trends. If you do not see the workouts tab, you will see the list of workouts in the summary tab (refer to the screenshot below). Follow the steps given below to delete a workout from the Activity app.
- Tap on Show More, located beside the Workouts section.
- Slide left on the workout you want to delete. Then tap on the red Delete button.
- Select from the following options
Delete Workout & Data; if you want to remove the workout data from the Health app as well.
Delete Workout Only; if you want to remove the workout data deleted from the Activity app.
Once you tap on one of the options, the workout data will be removed for good and the changes will sync to your Apple Watch.
