Now, the developer has managed to hack watchOS 2, to enable custom watch faces on his Apple Watch. He shared his feat on Twitter and also posted code on GitHub:

When Apple releases watchOS 2 this fall, new watch faces coming include 24 hour time-lapse videos shot in major cities such as Hong Kong, London, New York and Shanghai. Users will also be able to pick an image from photos or a specific album to set as their watch face.
