If you are having problems with Google Play Services eating up your battery, it was showing 60% on my Watch 6 classic. The fix I found to work was on your watch go to Play Store,, scroll all the way down to manage apps, tap on Google Assistant, tap on uninstall, then tap on update, Google Assistant. This will give you a clean update.
It now no longer eats my battery, the below screenshot in the Wearable app is typically how it should appear of normal usage!
You can also wipe cache partition on your watch as you do on your phone, below is a video on how to do this, it will help if your watch is getting laggy.

Mine said uninstall, but then when I uninstalled it, it said "update" instead of install. So I'm guessing it was really an *uninstall updates" thing.

Indeed! Btw, how did you uninstall Assistant? I'm not seeing that as an option. Only disable.

Yes, not taking it off the watch, just a clean update.

Thanks for the tip! I'm throwing a reboot at the end for good measure 😆
