Yeah! It's possible! Firstly you need to mod the smart watch app either by using exposed installer and searching smartwatch in the modules section or by using this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2735718

Secondly you need the WatchWidgets for SmartWatch 2 app which you can find on the Play Store...

Then you need to find the background widget in the watch face editor and drag it on to the centre. Then drag on your other widgets whilst being careful not to pick up the background. Then go to the watch widgets app settings and set the wallpaper...

I hope I helped

I think that there's something wrong in this widget. Color pictures are normal but in low power they are wrong. Nobody noticed this?

I think Itīs because of the grayscale that low power mode can show

Yeah I think this app doesnt handle the images very good on low power mode, if you try different resolutions of the picture or use the original size mode you may get better or worse results. This is because the conversion to low power mode resolution is not done properly by the app...

Does anybody know any other app which can handle this?

I'm waiting for the NeFa Studio Watchface widgets. The picture widget is still in development.

I have his first watchface app before widget mode and it is nice in low power mode
