  • Show events for today (agenda)
  • Show the next event

Apple Watch App

It’s the all-new watchOS app that brings the power of Calendars 5 to your wrist. Now, you can do loads of actions without even picking up your iPhone and thus save time.

The app alone lets you create events with voice input or scribble, view event’s content, a list of events and complete tasks. You can also customize your watch face with useful Calendars complications to faster create events, view the next meeting, free time slots, or the progress of the current event.
