To enter the download or recovery mode in the Gear 2, you need to follow the below steps.
You don’t need to go the Settings and the only button that would everything for you here is the “Home” button which is the only physical key on the smartwatch.
Press and hold the home key in the Gear 2 until you see that the screen gives the option for turning the device Power Off / Restart and changing the profile.
Keep pressing the key until you see the screen turning off and turning on with a message “Rebooting…”
Once you see this message, stop the continuous pressing and now hit the same Home button for 2-3 times until the Download / Recovery mode screen appears. This should be there for a very small time until you keep pressing the same button to navigate between the options.
Just like in the smartphones, you will not be able to use the touchscreen while the Gear 2 is in the download mode, thus you have to repeatedly press the home key to navigate and choose between one of the options. You need to leave the button when you wanted to select the particular option from the list. Using the recovery mode is not really easy, but entering it is just a simple trick.
