I charged my Watch Active 3 last night. It was 100% & on nighttime mode when I went to bed at 1AM.  At 8:30 this morning it was 5%. What is causing this battery drain? This past week I noticed it was needing to be charged a little earlier each night but this all of a sudden.

You probably have something on in the back round.

One thing that I noticed after the update a few days ago, is that they installed a "Hand Washing" watchface and capibility.  That's when I noticed a massive battery drain on my watch, so after seeing what it would do, I removed the watch face.  I was still seeing the battery drain, seeing the automagic recognition of the hand washing, I got to looking around, and discovered that it also installed a "Hand Washing" app.  This listens constantly by keeping the microphone open, listening for the water running.  I removed the app, (actually uninstalled it), and now the battery is back to normal.  You might try this.
