    I can't find anywhere to remove it from my watch. I habe a hard time believing that anything beyond a small minority of people have any use for this feature. Why is there no option to remove it?

    I'm no expert - but have you tried deleting the app from your iPhone? ;)

    Does what I want, it's just a check on the prices and trends - but I will only buy and sell from my office using my iMac not the iPhone.

    Oh, yeah? I use it 2 or 3 times a day. Much quicker than anything else that I know about. If you don't like it, you can always move it to the last page on your phone.

    I just "pushed" on the Stocks app and the wiggly "x" pops up, making me think you can delete it. I'm not going to test it because I don't know how to get it back if I did delete it.

    Oh, really.. Keep my watched stocks there since iPhone 4 & anytime I want to see movement I go there. Didn't know it's useless.

    Ooh, you can indeed now delete the Stocks app. Took me a while to find it on my phone as it was in a folder called Irrelevances. I’ve never owned stocks and don’t see that changing. I assume I could get the app back if I needed it but that seems unlikely.

    I must be in the minority but STOCKS is one of the main reasons I have owned Apple watches.

    The stock apps is slow but still give me an idea of how my stock is doing without pulling out my phone. I have a more elaborate stock app that alarms me when things are moving.

    A folder in the Watch app called "Irrelevances"? Can you be more specific?

    The Stocks App on his/her iPhone. Obviously they put Apps (like Stocks) that or NOT relevant to them in the folder.;)

    Yes, sorry, I’d put the Stocks app in a folder of things I’m never likely to use but which used to be impossible to delete.

    I put all of the apps I don't use in a folder named BS.

    Again the Apple Watch doesn't NOT have folders. This is about Apps on the Apple Watch.

    Sorry to take this off topic, but if you delete any of stock (pun intended) apps you can redownload them from App Store. However, if it is the default application and another application links to it, it will not work. For example, let's say you deleted Apple Maps because you prefer Google Maps. Then, someones sends you an address. You will be unable to simply click and open the address in Google Maps. It will bring up a prompt asking you to re-download the standard Apple Maps app from the App Store.

    I disagree that hardly anyone uses it. I’m sure the number of adult iPhone users who use stocks is probably much, much higher than adult users who use animoji or full screen iMessage effects. Yeah, there are better stock apps, but this one is already there and doesn’t need to be downloaded.

    Delete the stocks app from your iPhone, it will also remove it from your watch. Although it is not really gone, just hidden. And to make it show again, search for it in the App Store and reinstall it. You can tell by the fact that it takes a fraction of a second that it is just unhiding it. This is standard with all Apple apps that are "removable".
