With the launch of WatchOS 2, Apple Watch gained the ability to include user-selected wallpapers on select watch faces. Either a photo album will rotate through wallpapers each time the watch lights up or a single photo may be chosen.
This customization gives you more possibilities and matching device wallpapers can create a nice effect. Thanks to @AR72014, this Wallpaper of the Week post includes optimized Apple Watch wallpapers from previous versions of iOS. Take a step past the fold to find your favorites, both new and old.
iOS wallpapers for Apple Watch
The first set includes previous iOS generation wallpapers, specifically tailored for Apple Watch. Below is a list of 51 wallpapers. You can download them individually, or visit AR7’s Deviant Art page to download the Zip file for all of them. Remember, the photos need to be in a dedicated album on your iPhone to sync, so choose your download method appropriately.

The Wallpapers of the Week section is a combination of user-submitted images and those that we find scattered across the Internet. There is no particular theme or genre, but the image must be top quality and formatted for the most recent iOS devices. If you would like to connect via Twitter about your favorites, catch me at @jim_gresham for submissions or other great finds throughout the week.
