Once you install apps, you can rearrange them using your iPhone or your Apple Watch directly. Open up the app and go to the My Watch tab. Scroll down to the bottom and tap Edit. From there, you can add, remove, or rearrange apps however you see fit. When you’re done, tap Done in the top right corner.
