    Is there any way to get freaking "Cupertino" off my watch?

    I don't even know where the hell it is, and don't care if it's raining frogs there... I just want it gone!

    Help?

    Found it - the bloody thing was linked to the Weather Channel app on my iPhone - somehow Apple convinced them to place a subliminal advertisement in their app AND make it the 'default' city.

    Open "Weather" touch the three bars at the lower right (again on your phone) and up comes a grid list of cities. Hold down Cupertino and swipe to the left and the lovely red "delete" option appears.

    What a pain in the ass.

    It's not the Weather Channel app (even though Weather gets its data from TWC instead of Yahoo these days), but you found it.

    You would also use the Weather app to rearrange the cities as they'd appear when you swipe between them on the Watch.

    I can’t think of any Apple product that didn’t make its headquarter’s home the default city. It’s the first thing I change whenever I get a new Apple product or upgrade the OS.

    While you’re changing cities, I’ve noticed that data for the bigger cities comes in faster than for smaller cities if that affects which cities you put in.
