Deleting Messages on Apple Watch from iPhone

No, you cannot delete messages on your Apple Watch from your iPhone. While message notifications and deliveries are synced between the Apple Watch and iPhone, deleting a message on one device does not delete it on the other. If you want to delete a message from both devices, you must do so separately – deleting it on your iPhone won’t delete it on the Apple Watch and vice versa.
