    it seems that since I installed iOS 12.3 on my Xs Max, my Series 0 Apple Watch battery is draining <much> faster.
    Is it possible that could be a cause or is it just a coincidence?
    Obviously the watch is aging, but it seems like a switch was thrown in the past week.
    Didn’t notice anything unusual while running the betas. I’ve checked the watch settings on my phone and all seem as they were in the past.
    Just can’t afford even a refurbished AppleWatch at this time.

    Could just be a coincidence and the battery is beginning to fail.
    Apple had a couple of suggestions, will try them tomorrow morning.

    And forget a refurb. They only have GPS + cellular (don’t want cellular) at $400.00 plus tax.
    What I want costs $508.00 new with AppleCare and I can purchase at the Apple Store two towns over in a tax free state.
