Is the Date Complication missing or not working on your Apple Watch? In most cases, this has to do with the fact that you’ve recently updated your device to watchOS 7!

In watchOS 7 the Date complication is part of the stock Calendar app. To be able to display Today’s Date you have to use the Calendar complication. However, if you previously removed the Calendar app from the companion iPhone, the software will be also missing from the Apple Watch.

In this case, a Watch Face like Infograph Modular, that has a built-in complication won’t display any info in the Today’s Date field. More, you won’t be able to add the Date complication from the Watch Face edit menu!
