If, like me, you are bummed with how watchOS 3.2 (actually probably since 3.1) "broke" the calendar complication, then please consider providing feedback to Apple at: https://www.apple.com/feedback/watch.html#mn_p

Here is what I submitted - feel free to use this text:

SUBJECT = Recent watchOS release causes calendar complication to show next event instead of current one

FEEDBACK TYPE = Report a problem

COMMENTS = Calendar complication in 3.2 shows next event after 15 minutes into current event, whereas in previous OS versions the current event remained visible until it was completed. This is a problem for 2 reasons: 1) I can no longer see how much time I have left in my current appointment by simply looking at my watch face; 2) I can no longer reliably check if I have something scheduled later in the day using time travel, because if the time I check is more than 15 minutes into a pre-existing appointment then time travel will not show the conflicting appointment (for example, if I have events scheduled from 7-8:30 pm and 10-11 pm, and use the digital crown to advance time travel to 8 pm, then the complication will show my 10-11 pm event, leading me to think that I have nothing scheduled at 8 pm).

I wish this simply were a bug... but a senior Apple support person whom I reported this to received confirmation from an Apple engineer that it's actually a new "feature."

Unless a good deal of members see this as a problem, few, if any, are going to submit negative feedback to Apple. Hopefully, Apple will provide an option to choose.
