This has nothing to do with Airpods. I have the exact same issue with both Airpods and Beats Solo 3. Both of them disconnect from calls, music, whatever they're playing. Usually a couple times an hour. Then reconnect after 10 seconds or so. Amazing how these issues go unreported for months despite that they're obviously very widespread.
The lines below are false. Native apps on watchOS 2 cannot connect directly over Wi-Fi. NSURLSession is used to proxy connections from the Watch to the Phone making it appear to the app as if it is direct, but actually it is not. The performance is horrific and this is the primary flaw in watchOS 2. This is not a "we did this last year", this is a "top item to do this year".AppleInsider said:
At last year's WWDC, Apple introduced watchOS 2, which enabled developers to build native apps that ran on the watch itself, eliminating a round trip of communications to the connected phone on every action, resulting in much better performance. Native apps on watchOS 2 can also connect to the Internet directly via WiFi, even when your phone isn't present.
