I also have this issue on a Active Watch 2, but I might have found a fix for this issue. 

In the Spotify app, under settings, untick the option Automatic 'carmode' when BlueTooth is detected (or something like that) 

Now when you close the Spotify app on the phone, it no longer keeps the connection alive with Active Fit watch (after a few seconds). 

If you want to use the remote function on the watch, you need to open the spotify app first and the connection will come alive again.

SAME PROBLEM!!!

 

I have force stopped the app on my phone and done a reboot on my watch (without opening or using Spotify) -- I still get constant notifications on my watch that Spotify is draining my battery and indeed, my battery does seem to be depleting too quickly given that I am not currently using GPS or anything like that.  WHY AREN'T ANY SPOTIFY ENGINEERS MONITORING THIS FORUM AND PROVIDING A FIX????
