Default Charging Problems

So out of the box, this was fine. But while downloading its update, it suddenly crapped out on me. I assumed it was battery life, so I set it up to charge. I came back a while later, and it was overheating. So I unplugged it.

I can get it to start to turn on for a brief second, but then it stops. So I plugged it back in to have it charge, and the battery charge icon keeps flashing, but I can't get it to boot up all the way. Any idea what's going on?

What was happening when you tried to charge it? Just nothing? The charging icon keeps flashing on mine, and it's getting really hot, but it's not turning on. sigh.

I'm having the same problem. I was using it and then it shut off while downloading the update. It never came back on. Google is sending a replacement. I'm so disappointed.

Did you buy it, or is from Google I/O? What was the current version of Android Wear, and update to which version? I am asking because I ordered mine a Gear Live and I am scared about these problems. I hope that is a problem with first devices and that I have not spent 220$ for nothing...
