How to display photos on the phone via smartwatch
In this part of the article, we also want to say that smartwatches have some features, one of which is to display the watches from the smartphone gallery on the smartwatch. To do this, you need to make some settings so that the photos in the smartphone gallery are displayed on the smartwatch.
To access the photos in the phone gallery through the smartwatch, you must carefully follow the steps listed below:
To do this, we need to install the Photos application on our smartphone. Then it is better to select the Albums option. Then we have to select the + symbol that shows us in the corner so that we can create albums.
Then it is better to choose your desired name for the album. After creating the desired album, it is better to insert your favorite photos into the album. All the photos that I will add to the album at this stage are the photos that we will display on the smartwatch.
After creating the album and inserting our favorite photos into the album, we go to the smartwatch.

In this section, we move the reed down and select the Photos application from the list of available applications that it shows us. In this section, I select the Synced Album option and then select the album we created.
It is better to wait for Yankee to sync and then we will be able to access all the photos that we put in the album in the smartphone.
Using the smart watch application , you will be able to set a limit for the number of photos displayed through the smartwatch and tell how many photos to display and how many photos not to display. Doing so will prevent the phone's storage memory from running out. To be able to do this, I run the application developed for the Apple Watch iOS operating system ( in French: application développée pour le système d'exploitation Apple Watch iOS ). After running it, go to the My Watch section and select the My Watch application. It is better to select the Photos Limit option after that and in this section, specify the range or to display the photos on the smart watch.
