Difficult install, poor instructions
on October 8, 2015
I cannot get this to install in Windows 7. The manual is vague, tells you to go to http://movescount.com/moveslink and "download". But that page has no download link. It tells you to select your device from a list, but this device is not in the list. So I selected a random device and was given a download link (hurray). I installed Moveslink from that, and open it. It instructs me to plug in the Movestick Mini, which I do. And then... nothing. It still thinks it's not connected.
So I did some Googling and found many others with the same issue. Several unanswered questions on Suunto's website regarding this. I did find a PDF with instructions for how to manually install the drivers (dm4.movescount.com/Movestick%20Mini%20driver%20installation%20guide%20from%20zip%20file.pdf). It basically says to download a zip file and extract it, then open Device Manager, find “libusb-win32 devices" from the list, update the driver for it by pointing the search to the extracted zip folder. However, “libusb-win32 devices" does not appear in Device Manager.
I finally started trying the device in various USB ports and it finally showed "libusb-win32 devices" in Device Manager. I tried to manually update the driver using the zip file, but it said it's already using the best driver, which Windows installed on its own. So I reopen Moveslink and it prompts to connect my Suunto device, with a diagram showing a watch connected to a laptop via USB. But I don't have a watch, I have a Movestick Mini. I don't even know if I have the right Moveslink software since Suunto's website doesn't seem to offer any downloads for this device. The software I have thinks I must have a watch of some kind.
My end goal for this device is to use it with a bike trainer and have it connect to the speed, cadence and heart rate monitors I have. As of now, I'm stumped on how to accomplish this.
