When your Gear displays "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again", it's already in download mode.
An emergency-recovery-sort-of, download mode.

Just flash matching version rom, depending on what you were trying to do.
If it was android or null_rom, reflash android.

if it was android and you wanted to upgrade it to Tizen, flash the very first version of tizen (NE9), not the newer NF1.
NE9 allow to upgrade Android to Tizen, NF1 just allow to update Tizen to newer Tizen, and bricks Gear if trying to upgrade from Android.

Now it says I have the software version V700XXUCNE9 This is the first one right? where do I get the newest one so I can update it?

To update you can use Gear Manager on your smartphone, it will download the 2 or 3 MB update package, and send it to the Gear.
