The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 app has arrived in the Play Store. A look at their functions shows new gestures to switch off alarms, take a picture or answer an incoming call, reported 9to5Google (about XDA developers).
If you turn your wrist while wearing the watch, you can mute both alarms and incoming calls. When you clench your fist and loosen it, a call is answered. To take a photo or video with the Camera Controller app, make a fist and then open your hand.

Exploration of the app confirms that new watch faces will be available for the Galaxy Watch 3. According to 9to5Google, users can scroll through the different watch faces automatically.
Details about the Galaxy Watch 3 – including its name – have been online for weeks, including pictures of a physical rotating bezel, FCC listings that suggest the watch will have both LTE and Wi-Fi versions, and that it will come in 1.4 and 1.2 inch displays.
The watch is expected to feature a stainless steel case, GPS, heart rate and blood pressure monitors, an EKG sensor, 1 GB RAM, 8 GB internal memory and, depending on the size, a 247 mAh or 340 mAh battery.
