Choose your album

Apple Watch stores photos from a single synced photo album on your iPhone.

Choose the album to store on Apple Watch. Open the Apple Watch app on iPhone, tap My Watch, go to Photos > Synced Album, then choose the album. To create a new album for Apple Watch photos, use the Photos app on iPhone.

Use the Synced Album setting the Photos settings in the Apple Watch app to choose the photos you store on Apple Watch.

The actual number of photos stored on Apple Watch depends on available storage.
