Add a Watch Complication showing the time remaining until the next event you are "Looking Forward To." Configure this once and then never have to deal with it again, so you can just enjoy the happy feeling you get when you look at your Watch and it says that tomorrow is your favorite show or party you have been anticipating.
Unlike other event timer apps, this one does not require you to keep a separate calendar of events up to date, since nobody wants to do that. Simply tag events in your existing calendar, on your phone or desktop, and the complication will automatically show only those events in your calendars that match your tags. You can configure icons to use for specific tags or you can specify the icon directly in your calendar event, so you don't have to use a tiny UI on a phone if you prefer to type things into your calendar on your desktop.
The app running on the Phone is only for configuration. While it shows the next tagged events coming up, this is just to make sure your tags are matching. It is not intended to be used without the Watch Complication.
The app running on the Watch does its own resource management and calendar access, so that the Phone is minimally involved and battery life is conserved.
In your favorite calendar application, add the text tag "#lf2" (without quotes) to the title, location, or notes field of a calendar event. If you want to specify an icon to show, include the name of the icon after the tag, like so: #lf2(dragon)
Alternatively, you can configure additional tags in the Settings tab of the application. For example, you can configure all events that mention "Party" to be shown with a "cocktail" icon. The icon library is built into the application. It will grow in future versions and requests for additional icons are welcome.
If your tag refers to an icon that looks like a DNS domain (for example, "irs.gov" or "apple.com"), then you can use the "Icons" tab to download that web site's favorites icon. The app will automatically convert this to a Watch Complication icon and attempt to make it pretty.

Release 1.2 Summary:
Fixed various bugs leading to the Watch complication not updating correctly. This previously caused the icon to not show up or the sample event data being shown. The Watch app now always ends up showing the correct data, although it may take 10 minutes or so to update in some cases.
Detailed Release Notes:
∙ When not open to show the current event details, the Watch app now correctly runs only in the background. This means WatchOS will determine when it gets to update, so configuration changes may take longer (up to 10 minutes) to show up on the Watch. This change allows WatchOS to better manage battery life on the Watch and also fixes the cases where configuration changes were getting stuck.
∙ Configuration changes are now also "self-healing" and retried, to recover from cases where WatchOS kills the app during a configuration change because it feels like it.
∙ Fixed UI pausing when accessing site icon download in Icons Settings.
∙ Fixed Watch app redrawing too often, which was wasting battery.
∙ Fixed a bug that was causing event icons not to be shown in some cases.
∙ Fixed a bug that was causing Watch app not to update immediately after being reinstalled.
∙ Updating the app icon to remove extra white frame.
∙ Teaser: Slightly less terrible configuration app for iOS coming soon!
