  • The upgrades include new watch faces, a revamped weather app, and more.

It seems like the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 is approaching fast. The firmware for the new smartwatch has now popped up online and serial tipster Max Weinbach has dissected it to reveal some new features.

To start, Weinbach reports that the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 will be getting a bunch of new watch faces. Some of these watch faces will also display activity, heart-rate, and other information on the edges. The tipster says that these outside lines are called “Informative Digital Edge” and are customizable in terms of color and the information that they present. You can scroll through Weinbach’s tweet thread below to check out all the watch faces for the Galaxy Watch 3.

Moving on, the Galaxy Watch 3 is also reportedly getting a revamped weather app. The app will now display backgrounds that match the weather that it’s showing. For instance, if it’s cloudy or raining, the app’s background will change accordingly to reflect the weather conditions outside. Here’s how that’ll look.

Next up is a new health-tracking feature for women. The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 firmware shows that it’ll add support for menstruation tracking. Besides this, there’s also a new weekly preview feature in the calendar app that’ll make it easy for users to glance through the week’s events.
