Using the Photos watch face on your Apple Watch, you can display on your watch a personal slideshow of photos stored on your iPhone.

To use this watch face, though, you need to sync the desired photos with your Apple Watch.

This isn’t difficult to do, but Apple does impose some restrictions. You can’t choose an arbitrary set of photos — instead, you need to sync a specific photo folder from the Photos app on your iPhone.

Here’s how to do it.
