I've seen some of my watchface AOD shift by a few pixels here and there randomly. This results to some parts of the WF being cut off because I usually maximize the whole area in my designs and put some text on the edges. I have some users complaining on this. Can it be fixed by some tricks with how I build my WF on GWD or should I just tell my users to live with it? I'm using GWD 1.5.1 on macOS. 

Thanks in advance for any advice

Check this link :
Screen burn section.

In always-on states the system moves the watch face around at regular intervals by just a few pixels
in order to prevent a burn-in effect occurring on the OLED display. Be aware that design elements near
the edge of a watch face can be pushed out of the display when this happens. Avoid applying high brightness
and high chroma to a large block of pixels. For an analog type watch face, leave the center area empty or dark.

Hope it will help you.
