Thumbs down Galaxy Gear vibration failure

Hi everyone,

My GG was on null 10.1 working fine. This evening i realised that the watch was not vibrating at all.

I restarted. No vibration.
I wiped. No vibration.
I am now downloading the stock firmware and am going to flash via odin because i think it is a hardware failure and the watch needs to go to service point.

Anyone with similar experience?

Thank you in advance!

Flashed stock and the vibration still is not working. Didinthe *#0*# test and it does not vubrate at all.
Very displeased with that.

Off to the service point.
