S2 gear battery drain and overheating

Hello all, Have had my 2nd new S2 for 1 day. The first one overheated and ran the battery down in under 6 hours. Second one is doing the same. What in the heck am I doing wrong? These are the steps I have taken.

1. Dark Screen

2. Wifi off

3. bluetooth off

4. brightness to 1

5. NFC off

6. Mobile data to auto

7. Heart rate monitor off

8. Updated app and gear

9. Powered phone and gear off/on

Not sure what to do or if I am just super unlucky and have gotten 2 lemons.
