Fantastical 2 for Apple Watch FAQ

  1. Fantastical doesn't open on my watch immediately after updating Fantastical.

    It takes a few minutes for your iPhone to transfer the updated app to your Apple Watch after updating. Wait 5-10 minutes before trying to use Fantastical on your Apple Watch after updating. If Fantastical still doesn't open after waiting 5-10 minutes, restart your Apple Watch and try again.

  2. Why does Fantastical say that I don't have access on my Apple Watch?

    If Fantastical says it doesn't have access on your Apple Watch, please try the following:

    1. Disable the Fantastical complication.
    2. Restart your iPhone and then restart your Apple Watch.
    3. Try to open the Fantastical app on your Apple Watch again. If it works, you can enable the complication again.
    4. If it doesn’t work, wait 5-10 minutes and try again.
    5. If it still doesn't work, remove Fantastical from your iPhone and Apple Watch and download it again from the App Store.
    6. After installing it on your Apple Watch, a dialog should appear on the iPhone asking for access to calendars.
  3. Why doesn't Fantastical show me reminders when I'm not near my iPhone?

    Fantastical can only show reminders that will be due soon when you are not near your iPhone. Reminders that are due soon will be shown, but you will not be able to see reminders without a due date or reminders that are due in the past or far in the future.

  4. Why can't I view a specific event on my Apple Watch?

    Apple Watch only allows a small amount of data to be sent from your iPhone to your watch. Because of this, Fantastical on Apple Watch may not be able to show events too far into the future and instead keeps you informed of events that are more likely to be relevant to you.

  5. Why isn't Fantastical's complication updating?

    This is due to a bug in watchOS.

    To fix this, launch the Fantastical watch app and then hold the watch's side button until the 'Power off' option appears. When this appears, hold down the digital crown for a few seconds to force close the app.

    After re-launching Fantastical the complication should work as expected.
