    One of the slight annoyances I've had with the day/date complication inside the analog-looking watch faces is that, when the minute hand is over the day/date, it makes it nearly impossible to read the day/date. On actual analog watches, you can often tilt the watch and look under or around the minute hand to at least get a partial glimpse.

    Well, now Time Travel allows me to scroll forward or backwards a few minutes, which quickly reveals the date when it's covered. It's probably the only thing I've used Time Travel for, so far. LOL :)

    Time travel is nice for my work schedule and for checking weather for later. Love it for those two things but mostly to check for rain and soon snow. Brrrr

    Waiting for fantastical 2 to be native and see if it uses time travel.

    If Apple were more clever, they'd move the day/date around the minute hand such that it's never blocked (not superimposed over it, which is tacky). I.e., the day/date shifts downward as the minute hand touches it, then back up on top of it when it's far enough down.

    although it would be great if time travel worked for stocks. ;-)

    I bet Apple would blow out the smartwatch market on Watches with that feature.

    And if they were really clever, they'd allow the hands to shift around with a parallax effect ;)

    This is exactly what I would've written. I'm checking the app store a dozen times a day at least since 2.0 dropped just checking for fantastical. Easily my most used app and running natively on the watch with a complication would be amazing... the annoying thing is that they updated their mac app today for El Capitan... I almost wrote into them to let them know that was a poor use of their time as who cares about El Capitan right now... Give me my watch complication already!!!!

    No. Don't even joke about that.
