Here are the new watch faces in watchOS 9

The Apple watchOS 9 update introduces several new watch face options, including Lunar, Playtime, Metropolitan, and Astronomy, as well as revamping many of the existing watch faces.

The moon depicts the relationship between the Gregorian calendar and the lunar calendar used in cultures that include Chinese, Islamic, and Hebrew. You can use up to four complications with this watch face.

Playtime is a fun, dynamic Apple Watch face featuring moving numbers, with a face designed in collaboration with artist Joi Fulton. Rotating the Digital Crown changes the background by moving the cut-outs, and the characters interact if you tap on them. You can choose to have a confetti background or a solid background, but there are no complications.

The Metropolitan is a classic Apple Watch that changes shape when you turn the Digital Crown. Tailored numbers change in style and weight, and rotate to become pills when the wrist is down. Up to four complications can be added using the circular dial, and the colors are customizable.

Astronomy is actually a revamped version of the original astronomy clock face, but has been reworked and includes a new star map and existing cloud data based on your location. You can set Earth, Moon or Solar System as the main view and customize the font. It supports two nodes, and turning the Digital Crown lets you fast forward or rewind to see the phase of the moon/the location of the planet on another day.
