    Not yet, I try to keep the number of apps to a minimum. The number of apps apple forces on there that I can't remove is really annoying and I really only want like 5-6 icons. Seriously I should be able to remove apple's stocks app.

    Dear {fill in the blank app} stop reinstalling on my phone.

    Whoever thought that it was a good idea to automatically reinstall an app on the watch whenever it updates was a moron. How did that slip through.

    or it was done on purpose.

    Knowing first app versions would be cr** and users could throw'em away, they decided to force reinstall the updates.

    I expect this behavior to be gone with watchOS 2 (or in 2.1 ? cause there'd be the same dilemma with the first native apps versions)

    To stop apps reinstalling, u have to also remove them from your itunes or it just will put them back for u. Hipe that works.

    Actually it was a bug. Should be resolved in 8.4 according to the release notes.
