It’s long been pos­si­ble to cus­tomize your Watch face us­ing your own images, but al­ter­ing the im­age has meant hav­ing pic­tures within a synced al­bum. In iOS 11 there’s a new “Cre­ate Watch Face” share sheet op­tion in the Photos app of the iPhone. You can pick a set of up to ten images to use as a cus­tom watch face, which will change to the next im­age each time you lift your wrist or tap the dis­play. You can also turn a sin­gle im­age into a fun kalei­do­scope. Once your cus­tom­ized face is on your Watch, you can make changes from your wrist. Tap and hold the face and se­lect “Cus­tomize” be­fore tap­ping var­i­ous po­si­tions, swip­ing, and us­ing the Dig­i­tal Crown to ad­just.
