Series 3 swollen battery but not covered by apple so replacement unless I buy a new one.

in Apple Watch
I have a 7 month old series 3 and the screen popped off, I returned it to apple and they stated that the battery has swollen but I have to pay for a replacement.
 Has anyone else had this happen and can you offer advice on how to escalate this, seems apple don't watch to replace for swollen batteries anymore??

    This exact this is happening to thousands of people every day. I just got notified that even though the Apple tech in the store said it was a swollen battery, the techs claimed otherwise. I am furious. There was zero impact and I am so angry at Apple!!  They know this is happening but they are doing nothing. I hope this lawsuit materializes because I am so angry that they denied my obvious swollen battery!!!

    Did either of y’all ever have any luck? I’m taking my series 3 in today for the same issue and I’m a little worried 😬
