I am SO happy! I FINALLY got it right for my stupid polar watch to upload data. A friend of mine figured it out (clever boy!).
Turns out our new fangled gadget, laptops and netbooks are too smart for their own good. The built in microphones have fancy background noise cancelling stuff that interprets the sonic chirping of the watch as background noise and thus kills it …. so the trick is to use an old (really old) microphone.
I’ve lost around 3 weeks of data, but that’s ok – at least I’m back in business now 🙂
