Notifications get sent by almost any app that you have installed on your iPhone, and this behavior applies to Apple Watch apps, too. You can turn off many of these Apple Watch notifications, but there are some that you might still like to receive. Once you have received a notification on your Apple Watch, you can view it by swiping down from the top of the watch face.
But you might notice that some of these notifications remain on that window, and that you would like to dismiss them. Our guide below will show you a simple method that you can use to delete a notification on your Apple Watch.
