These days I got an Suunto Movestick aka. PC-Pod. This combination is one of the possibilities to get the data of your Heartratemonitor on your Pc. I tried to connect my T3d with Movescount via the Movestick and a Macbook Pro (latest model) with OSX 10.6.6. The T3d shows “PC Transfer” on the clock for a while but nothing happens with the Movescount Software on my Mac…
First I installed the Software in my Bootcamp Windows 7 Prof. and checked this out. This wasn’t working either, so I changed the Batteries of the Watch and then it worked under Win. Anyway the OS X Version of Moveslink was not willing to work.
I found some entries in the Suunto and other forums regarding this issue but no solution was provided. So I started my own investigations and found out that the driver for the Movestick chipset should be the problem. In the Mac console a logentry indicates that the Movestick is recognized, it also can be seen under /Dev/tty.SLAB_USBtoUART, but Moveslink seems not to catch the “connected” event or rather listen to the information provided by the driver. The stick is shown as modem in my Network-connections.
Therefore I tried to install a newer driver, (should be a SiliconLabs CP2102 chip) from the SiliconLabs Website. This driver showed no reaction while trying to connect the Watch with the stick.
After spending an evening I decided to delete all drivers and Software and using VMWare and Windows… I informed the Suunto support – but didn’t get an answer yet.
It would have been too good to be true….
