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.

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.

Other additions to the Galaxy Watch 3 include rich notification icons, new app icons, a new music widget, and the Outlook email app instead of Samsung Email. Weinbach also confirms that there’s 8GB internal storage on the watch, 5.3GB of which is available to users. He adds that Spotify will come preinstalled on the Galaxy Watch 3 in the US.
