We reported earlier that the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 will have an improved weather app. It turns out that weather will in fact be integrated into a cool new animated watch face which will be synchronized with real-life weather conditions.
XDA-Dev’s Max Weinbach has posted a video showing the animation which can be seen below.

There will also be other animations, such as the one above.
Other improvements include an improved Music app, the bundling of the Spotify app, new watch faces which includes a new Information Edge complication, and what appears to be a replacement of the Samsung Email app with the Microsoft Outlook app.
The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 has a thinner bezel, larger screen to bezel ratio, a different style of buttons, rotating bezel, but otherwise seems to offer similar features to the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2.
