This comes from TechCrunch, who have spoken to people familiar with the matter who claim all Apple services will soon be removable from the smartwatch.
That includes Alarm, Timer, Stopwatch, Remote, Camera Remote, Radio, ECG and Breathe.

If that's the case, it's also likely upcoming Apple services for the watch will be removable too. That includes Noise, Cycle Tracking, Calculator, Apple Books and Voice Memos.
Previously Apple has only allowed you to remove third-party apps from the Apple Watch, and it's currently unclear how you'll be able to get the services back if you've deleted them.
This is expected to come in watchOS 6 alongside a new dedicated App Store, a menstrual cycle tracking app and a service that listens to ambient noise to help protect your hearing.
That software upgrade is coming to all versions of the Apple Watch, apart from the original generation so as long as you're using an Apple Watch Series 1 or above you'll be able to do this.
