    For some reason i can never close the last app open. I keep trying to tap the X to remove but it just reappears again. I literally need to power my AW2 off to get the last app closed.

    Can't try it myself, but not sure why it isn't possible. But for a another question. Why are you clearing apps? The new dock helps with keeping apps in memory so they open almost instantly instead of 5-10 sec (depending on which watch you have).

    OCD and a waste of time, effort and thought. The apps are just held in memory in their last state unless you have refresh on and are ready to open. Most apps are in the 50 to 200MB range and so it is pointless and even counterproductive to remove them. Reloading them will use MANY times more battery than just leaving them.
