The biggest feature of the Rachio3 is the added support for wireless add-ons such as the Rachio Flow Meter. The flow meter enables real-time leak detection/shut off and accurate outdoor water usage. It also comes with an improved weather service.
There are a few hardware upgrades as well such as support for 5 GHz WiFi, improved valve connectors, and a magnetic faceplate.

i remember there was some complaint that Rachio is a cloud only device, i.e. it won't be able to remember the settings if internet is down. is it still the case for 3rd gen?

Sweet. I've been waiting to see if they'd offer the pre-sale price again.

Thanks OP!

According to their support site the Rachio will continue to run the last schedule it received if it is offline for extended periods of time.
Quote :
While offline for long periods, your controller will run the last saved schedule created in the Rachio app. Any updates/changes to these watering schedules will upload to the controller the next time it reconnects with the cloud. However, while the controller is offline, it cannot receive schedule updates, skip watering times due to rain or freeze delays, or be run manually.
The Rachio3 supports manual runs as well using the buttons on the front panel, and I believe there is work being done to support creating schedules using only the app and direct communication with the controller. (no cloud)
