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!

Thank you mate for your time and everything you've done that made the Gear a better device.
Will post back after flashing stock.

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.
