HELP! I bricked my Samsung Galaxy Gear 1. "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue"

Hello! I have tried everything i can think of. It is a US Galaxy Gear. was flashing Tizen using Odin and it failed and now cannot power up. I cannot get into download or recovery mode. the only screen it will show is "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue, please select recovery mode in Kies and try again"

Kies does not recognize it. Odin does see it, and i tried flashing SEVERAL Stock ROMS for the V700, all of which fail. I cannot seem to find a US ROM, so i am using one for England. that fails as well.

I am at wits end, any ideas? I also tried different USB cables, reinstalled the latest Samsung drivers, tested those with a working watch, even another cradle (my brother has an identical gear 1). also swapped to different USB ports

thanks for any help!

My partner thought he was a tech genius and bricked my SM-V700 and I have very limited tech knowledge... I have tried the way explained here but keep getting on Odin:

<ID:0/003> File analysis..
<ID:0/003> SetupConnection..
<ID:0/003> Complete(Write) operation failed.
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)
or
<ID:0/003> File analysis..
<ID:0/003> SetupConnection..
<ID:0/003> Initialzation..
<ID:0/003> Get PIT for mapping..
<ID:0/003> Firmware update start..
<ID:0/003> All samsung recovery.zip
<ID:0/003> NAND Write Start!!
or it just gets stuck at SetupConnection
...
When I turn on the watch screen (it never seems to turn off just run out of power) the display reads: Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies and try again.
I have tried just running Kies as it suggests but cannot start recovery mode without a recovery code.
Thank you for any help you may be able to offer, I realise this is a long dead thread!
