    Just got my Apple Watch and I was checking out Time Travel. The date did not change when my next appointment was on the next day.

    I have an appointment today between 1:00pm - 3:00pm and when I traveled past 3:00pm it showed my next appointment but.... my next appointmet is the next day and the date did not change on the watch so there was no way to tell it was tomorrow.

    I set up some fake appointments in my calendar to see if I could duplicate this and I was able to duplicate it.

    Also I noticed when I make an appointment in iCal that when I go to set up an alert, there is now a "Time Travel" option. Any idea what this is for?

    Not a bug but I agree with you. The date only changes when the watch hits 00:00. The calendar complication only shows the time of the event.

    They should add a little mark on the complication if the event is for the next day. You can however always press the event to open the calendar for more info.

    I think Fantastical 2 does what you want for $2.99. Right now, I have nothing left on my calendar for today and the calendar shows the next appt with the word Tomorrow listed first.

    No idea on that second part, but I am a huge fan of Fantastical on my watch. Not only does it do my calendar, but also lists my reminders and to do's at the top of app when loaded.

    I think if your using time travel then your appointments should not show up until you are on the right day/time.

    There is no reason to show an appointment from 6:00pm-7:00pm on the 27th when the appointment is really on the 28th.

    I really think this is a bug. Time travel is meant to allow you to rotate the crown and as the date/time progresses, appointment during that time/day would appear.

    I will check out fantastical 2, thanks!

    I cant believe more people aren't disappointed with the default appointment complication. I just looked at my watch and it said my daughter had tennis at 3:00pm - 4:00pm but it was not for today, it was tomorrow but there was no way to tell that by looking at the watch face.

    I hope Apple fixes this!

    I usually press it for more info. That's why it hasn't bothered me.
