Where does gear save the backup?

I installed galaxy gear on my gt-i9505 s4 with cm11. I got it working at first but could not use gears notification system but used ATN manager. In my striving to get the most out of it, I tried to factory restore the gear, and now gear manager asks me every time to either reset it or restore the backup it has. Now both of these fail. And because it worked the first time when there was no backup I wish to find the directory where Gear manager keeps the saved data. I have so far not been able to find it. It's not any of the preinstalls from the gear manager, not from gear manager itself nor is it fetched from a server. So where is it? Could someone point me in the right direction?

I had the same issues I deleted .BTManager_backup on the root of the sdcard on my HTC one and it was able to work correctly again with out asking to restore or reset.

Thanks man. Been looking for this all night. So once removed the gear will connect without any of those pesky options but do you see any issues? Does the setting app show up on gear manager?

Settings app? I can set things in gear manager like what the power button does and such if that is what you mean.
