To delete text messages on the Apple watch, begin in the Messages app in the list view. (You can’t delete a message on the watch while looking at an individual message – you must be looking at the list of all your texts.)
To access the list view of your text messages, simply open the Messages app:
You will immediately see the list view:
Swipe from right to left across a message, and the trash can icon will appear:
Tap the trashcan, and the message will be deleted from your Apple Watch.
Note, however, that it’s not currently possible to delete a message from your iPhone by deleting it from your watch. Deleting a message on your Apple Watch removes it from the watch only, not the phone. For this reason, I personally don’t delete text messages from my Apple Watch very often.
(Honestly, I don’t delete them from my iPhone either. Digital hoarding isn’t a problem, right?!)
