Just to confirm, if you do this
Power Approach off (Press and hold LIGHT/POWER button until device powers off)
Press and hold DOWN
Release DOWN and LIGHT/POWER when screen displays Clear user data?
Select Yes
It is not running the reset as the down button does not function correct?

Yes that's correct
ok, if the down button wont even work to do this, it will be the connector under it that has failed. your not going to be able to do anything with it that involves the down button as the issue is a hardware fault.
The problem is it only comes with a 1 year warranty and a repair on this exceeds the value of a new watch, as the entire mainboard would need to be replaced.
I am really sorry and please do not shoot the messenger, but with this type of problem you will need to purchase a replacement. Its not a problem you can get around due to it being a hardware fault.
If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
