Create an app for an art project


For an art project I need to use a Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 as a display screen.
The watch should display a video or a gif in a loop and never pause/quit and never go to sleep.

Is there a way to create an app to do this? Or would there be a simplier way to achieve that? I was thinking about using the retail/demo mode that already displays videos in a loop but i don’t really know how to do this and use a video of my choice.

Thanks a lot and have a nice day,


I think I found a solution. There is an app you can download from Galaxy watch Store called I Am Alive and that will keep the watch active. I do not know if it needs to be on a charger or not I leave that up to you.
