Make your watch faces more unique.

The Apple Watch is undoubtedly one of the smartwatches available and includes a variety of ways to personalize it, from watch bands and even the watch faces. The Apple Watch already has a plethora of top-notch watch faces available, but you can also use your own images and make it as a wallpaper.

What’s more, you can also use Live Photos as tappable moving wallpapers on the Apple Watch. While you can take Live Photos from the Camera, you can use an existing GIF and convert it to a Live Photo to use on the Apple Watch.

Just follow these steps:

Download the GIPHY app and look for a GIF that you would want to use as a wallpaper.

Save the image but remember to select ‘Convert to Live Photo’.

The GIF should now be saved in Photos as a Live Photo.

Now open the Watch app and select the Face Gallery tab in the bottom.

Scroll down and look for the Photos watch face and select the image you’ve saved.

You can make the Live Photo move on your Apple Watch by hard-pressing on the screen.
