    Yes, they have not released the watch update yet, so until they do the phone thinks the watch can do something it can’t.

    Pretty sure some folks at Apple have been and will be working late.

    Apple shouldn’t have made one available and not the other. That’s poor.

    No to podcast complication. Believe MacRumors reported that in one of the updates

    I wonder why they only fixed some of the complications.

    Still no stopwatch on infograph modular.

    I'm disappointed in the messages complication. I hoped to replace AQI with messages but with no unread messages there's an ugly circle behind the icon and it doesn't match my other corner notifications.

    I wish it would look the same with no unread or even have a "no unread" or "0 unread" text just to balance the other corners out. I'll stick with the useless AQI for now just because it looks better.

    It's good for old fellas like me though as if I glance at the watch and there's no text I know there are no messages. If it had text underneath even when there are no messages I'd have to squint pretty hard or get my glasses out every time I check ;-)

    That's a good point. I just feel that my watch face is too unbalanced with the messages complication in a corner. Small first world problems but I expected more from Apple

    Ugh Apple. They added in some complications but not all... still missing reminders. Cmon seriously.
    Also, 3rd party complications that actually show up in the complications menu don’t show up when customizing my watch faces.

    Apple makes great products but they leave out some of the simplest things. Calculator on iPad. No multiple timers support. (Seriously?) and the missing complications.

    Is there no unread email count on the mail complication? At least the messages complication let’s me know how many unread messages I have. I feel like the mail complication should do the same, or am I missing something?

    No, you’re right. There’s no indicator of how many are unread. It doesn’t have a number of unread emails within the mail app either though...

    Very disappointed after the update. I was hoping that all my complications would now work, but unfortunately that’s not the case. While Stocks works on the Infograph, it still doesn’t work on the Infograph Modular. And the one I’ve been waiting for the most - Dexcom G6 (a diabetes monitoring complication) still doesn’t work on either the Infograph Modular or Infograph. Of course they you all work on the Modular face, just not the new Infograph Modular. Dexcom is a third party app so maybe that’s because they need Dexcom to update it?

    This seems so simple and it’s crazy that Apple has completely failed on this.

    Yeah with third party apps it’s totally the responsibility of the developer of that app. Apple couldn’t do anything if they wanted to.

    But Apple should have the Stocks app working since it’s not third party. Seems crazy that they updated that one just for Infograph but not Infograph Modular.

    Yeah totally.
    That’s why I started this thread.

    I was asking why apple has a stopwatch complication that works only on infograph but not infograph modular. To me it’s the most important complication.

    I didn’t realize there was another like that.

    Reminders are there?

    Pretty certain it is on the third party developer to make the complication work for the screen. Not Apple. There are plenty of third party complications working, so it is not like Apple is blocking certain ones.

    Both messages and email complications are working for me in 5.1.2 on infograph.

    Contact has to be set as a favourite in the Phone App favourites section, then it will show up in the watches complications.
