    Cool Gear 2 Backup Location

    So we can use our G2 on more than one phone, but we have to reset the G2 to do it. I would like to use my work phone during the week and my personal phone on weekends/vacation. There's a backup and restore function, so it should be possible to do a backup while connected to device A, then reset and do a restore to the backup made while on device B. The problem is I can't seem to locate where the actual backup file is stored. We would need to be able to saved the backup file in another folder for later use. Does anyone know where to find & relocate the backup file? Thanks!

    Ah great, so without ROOTING your phone there is no way to move a Samsung Gear S2 to a new (non-Samsung) phone WITHOUT wiping it all out completely and losing all your settings.

    Absolutely brilliant this is - NOT.

    The backup data should sync with my Samsung account and on my new phone it should be possible to download and restore it.

    Backing up to the local phone, which is to be replace (hence resetting the Gear) is completely and utterly useless.

    Really sick of Samsung. It's the last device I'll be buying from them.
