Fixed watches HTTPS client

The IOTA Watch was slow to get HTTPS data from any server during the first call and connection to the server. This has been fixed and reading over HTTPS now happens very quickly. The fix involved migrating to a new ESP32 library namely WiFiClientSecure. What does this mean for the end user?… It means that you don’t have to wait multiple seconds when your watch makes first contact with an IOTA node, it connects instantly (<1 second).
