    I at one time used live wallpaper on my Apple Watch and it would animate when I lifted my wrist to check the time as it was supposed to. I took a break and now want to use a live wallpaper again, however after I set it up when I lift my wrist I just get the time and complications with a black background. The live pic doesn't even bother to show up until 10 secs. or so later and even then does not animate when it finally loads. I'm using the most up to date software on Apple Watch and the latest beta for iPhone 6s Plus. Anyone have any ideas?

    I've had this happen as well with my Series 1. It is still unresolved. However, if I choose the album face where the pictures change each time, the live pictures work. Hopefully it is resolved in the next release.

    Thank you for replying. Glad to know it's not just me. I agree, hopefully a fix soon.
