Is there any way to get the calendar(s) that are showing on the Apple Watch faces to link to a different calendar? I'm using Fantastical for my calendar app & it doesn't appear that the watch face links to anything but the standard default calendar.

No, but Fantastical 2 has an Apple Watch app and shows in Glances - so it is easy to get there but it does not integrate with watch face.

I suspect that will come in time as the watch firmware goes thru revisions.

Apple just announced 3rd Party complication support in watchOS 2 so soon you'll be able to have the Fantastical app generate the complication and it will also link to their app directly (i.e. bypass Apple's calendar app completely).

Only got my watch yesterday, but I'm struggling the the Calender app. It seems to be stuck on "today" only and although I can zoom out to see the month, I can't click on any other days or months.... Any ideas? I'm probably just doing it wrong :)

Apple iWatch calendar is a joke... It gives you a 7 day look ahead & if you want more it tells you to use your phone...

Seriously Apple, you should be able to develop better software than this... I have had my watch a few days & it looks like their software developers have never seen the simplicity of the iPhone... Almost every application requires you watch their videos over & to figure out how to use them... You have to make changes on your iPhone & iWatch to get them to work... Just to get the exercise workout to stop was a major challenge... It has a "stop" button that refuses to work so you probably have to go to the iPhone & find a stop button there... The iWatch is not ready for prime time yet.... Conceptually I love it, but in two days the honeymoon is long over...
