Is anyone able to post pictures of the new watch faces that will be available in watchOS3?

:)

that's it?
So far, "that's it" for the new watch faces with beta 1... Not sure what it would take to not say "that's it" but it is a nice jump from the original faces and the way it has it's own tab in the iphone watch app makes it look like a store-front for either new faces to show up or be purchased.

This is only Beta 1

It would take a Donald Duck watch face.

For now...(fingers crossed)

I mean they don't even open Watch faces to third party developers, I really want a watch face with animated weather as background and customizable modules.

No in watchOS 2, not sure in 3 though.
Yeah I'm hoping they would do that in watchOS 3. It doesn't list Solar face specific to getting the complication but I was hoping they will because they added it to the photo and time lapse faces....I think the solar is the most beautiful but I haven't used it because I like to have weather info available....

Can you add a complication to the Solar face?
Nope. :(

E: I think Solar and Space are the only watch faces that have zero configurability. I can understand why Space has no complications, but Solar has so much free space that I see no point why there can't be a slot or two for complications.

E2: There is of course the new feature that allows you to quickly change the watch face. You can just swipe the left or right on the watch face to change it. So if you at some point of the day don't need all your complications, you can change to a better looking watch face.

Thanks for the info....I agree with all that space at the bottom why not allow me one complication....

Yea, a big complication at the bottom would be great. The top right corner is also empty, so there could easily be small complication. And there is no reason why the top left "complication" is locked to showing current day. There could easily be 3 complications, and the day could even be moved to the center or below the time or something like that.

Another thing I noticed when using the time lapse watch face is that now when the sun is up higher in the air and the background screen is lighter the text for the numbers (and the new complication at the bottom) is now black instead of white. Much easier to read.

I was under the impression people were going to post their new watch faces with the new options. :)

Liking this one at the moment.

I have a modular face to the left and right with all the complications I refer to. Works well with the new swipe-to-switch-face gesture.

When they open faces to developers/designers and implement a face store, the Apple Watch will have arrived. Not a minute before. Anything less is a stop gap.
