If you find that every time you connect your iPhone to Apple Watch, the battery of your iPhone drain so fast, then you got a problem. Deal with this problem right away with the listed possible solutions.
First thing to do is to turn off anything that you don’t need from Notification area in Apple Watch app in your iPhone. You also need to make sure that both devices are connected using Bluetooth, which use less power.
Turning both devices off and on again could also help you with this problem. For your iPhone, just press the Sleep/Wake button and then slide the power OFF option to the right and press the Sleep/Wake button once again to turn it back on. As for your Apple Watch, press and hold the side of Apple Watch until the sliders appear and slide power OFF option, and turn it back on by press the side of Apple Watch once again.
Make sure that the software on both devices is up to date. If the software on one or both devices is not update, then it may have to work harder and it means that it will use more battery power. On your iPhone, go to Settings > General > Software Update. You also can open Apple Watch app on the iPhone and go to My Watch > General > Software Update. Update the software right away to solve this issue as well as any other issue that may arise.
Unpairing Apple Watch from the iPhone is another option to try. On your iPhone, go to Apple Watch > Unpair Apple Watch > Unpair. After that, you can try to reconnect both device and see whether the problem still persists or not.
As usual, erasing the data, setting and content on your Apple Watch is the last resort. This option is available in Settings app and it will bring your device back to its original setting so you need to set it up all over again.
