When running Google maps from my phone, why does Google maps run on the watch as well?

Go to maps on watch -> hit the search symbol -> scroll down to settings -> auto-launch -> turn it all off.

IMO, the above from CigarSurgeon is the solution.

Note that if you turn all the auto-launch off, and then manually launch companion maps on the watch, it continues to control what the phone maps app is doing. I think I'd prefer that was a severable link. If anyone is listening.

Convenience is definitely one reason.
