    is there any way to stop location services from always being in use when my phone is paired with Apple Watch? It's draining my battery significantly

    Does this happen when you kill the Apple Watch app on the iPhone too?

    It's some other app. My watch does not activate my phone's location services full time. I have watch on and phone in hand, and the location triangle icon on the phone is not lit, nor does my battery seem to be draining faster.

    3rd party app? Look at the location services settings on your phone and it'll tell you which app is holding it active.

    Try turning off you watch.

    Does the power drain persist?

    Thanks for your advice, everyone. I realised it was an app on my phone that was constantly using location services and not the watch. Problem resolved. :)
