Default Nandroid of Null 19 on new Galaxy Gear?

I have my GG setup and running nicely. I want to move to another Galaxy gear. What is the best way to transfer the exact setup without issue? Do a nandroid of my current setup and then restore the nandroid from TWRP on the new GG watch?

That's a very good question and I hope someone can respond.
I have 2 Gears on Null _ rom and every time I switch, i have to install my apps again and again, even if I select restore option in GM.
Strangely, it's not a total wipe because my Nova settings remains.
I hadn't think about the TWRP back up/restore option...

Backup in TWRP, copy to desktop, install TWRP on new watch, copy TWRP backup to the new watch, restore backup. It'll be like you never left.

And instead of Titanium or reinstalling after a Gear Manager upgrade (or whatever), just do a backup of /data and then restore /data after the upgrade. Takes 15 seconds and you're back where you started exactly, no hassle.
