How Do I Set a Picture As My Wallpaper On My Samsung Watch 4?
You will need to have pictures on your phone in your Gallery App. You can add photos by opening your Galaxy Wearable App on your smartphone or by selecting and changing your watch face on your Galaxy Watch.
You will want to change the watch face to a real photo by using one provided in the Galaxy Store. Once you have applied the premade photo, you can easily edit and select a personal photo to add as your watch face.
It did take our Galaxy Watch 4 some time before it recognized the real photo change on the watch face before allowing us to add a personal photo as the wallpaper. You can force a restart and see if it recognizes the change enabling you to change out your watch face to a photo faster.
Changing out your Galaxy Watch face to a personal photo adds a unique touch to your Watch. It’s simple and free, once you have done it once you will be able to change the image as often as your like.
The simplest way is to use the already premade watch faces that use a real photo. This should already have come installed on your watch but if not a quick search in the Galaxy Store will have it installed on your watch in no time.
