Feature Request: Bring Back Active Seconds Hand during Always On Display for the Galaxy Watch 3

It looks like the active moving seconds hand and changing seconds digit that shows up during the Always On Display has been removed from all preloaded watch faces on the Galaxy Watch 3.

 

This feature was available select preloaded watch faces on all prior models from the Gear S3 Frontier/Classic, Galaxy Watch (original 2018), and Galaxy Active/Active2.

 

I would like to request that this feature be brought back to the Galaxy Watch 3. Thank you.

This is an extremely important feature for people in the healthcare field who need ongoing access to active seconds hands or seconds digits throughout the day when monitoring patient's vitals.

I see that this feature is obviously not going to be re-implemented since the newest update (R820XXU1CTJ5) for the Galaxy Active 2, the active moving seconds hand/digits during AOD is being REMOVED.

 

That is going backwards in functionality and intentionally removing features that are useful. This is so frustrating!! You lock out that feature from watch face developers and now intentionally remove it from older models that support it. The new updates should be ADDING features not REMOVING features.

 

I had purchased the GWA2 specifically so I had a watch with an always on moving seconds hand, and then Samsung goes ahead and removes the feature. Extremely frustrating and disappointing!!

Some people use this function daily, and understand any drawbacks it may have. Please add an option to enable/disable second hand in always on display. Removing the function altogether isn't very fair for users who enjoy galaxy watches but also need this seemingly niche option. Unfortunately, this is important enough that it turns me away from buying a new one.
