press and hold power for at least 10sec to force reboot, reattach to usb and kies. Then reboot again the watch and close kies and open Odin, see if it works. Mine was wonky like that another time and I think it was when I was halfway through Odin install and my computer suddenly decided it detected my device again and started to update a driver. Then it failed and I had similar issue. After playing with it a bit it started to see the gear and it wasn't flashing. Good luck.

P.s. It failed a second time again and then finally worked on third try while closing my eyes...:P

These phone's are addicting! The more tweaks/apps etc. I read about the more I have to cram into my phone! Can my phone overdose???
