If you want to use this with your Android device, you'll need a device that supports USB-OTG (on the go), a USB-OTG cable, and install the Ant+ Service drivers as well as your exercise software to read the Ant+ data.
Bluetooth LE/Smart devices and radios are just now becoming more affordable and available, so you may not need this if you decide to go Bluetooth, but if you have Ant+ devices, this is a great device to sync and compatibility hasn't been a problem so far.
- Installation and use - The definition of plug-and-play. I had zero problems setting this item up. Zero. I installed Suunto's Moveslink software directly from their site. Then, I inserted the Movestick into the most convenient USB port. Windows recognized it. I told Windows to install the software automatically, which it did. Set my watch to stun (sorry, connect). And, it quickly uploaded my sessions.
- Small size - Very little fear of snagging this as it hangs out the side of my laptop. This thing is REALLY tiny. It only extends about a 1/4" out the side of the USB port.
- Price - $40 is not bad considering the price of the Pods and Suunto's wrist-top computers. Sure, it could be $20, but since it works this well and appears well-built, I'm not going to complain.
- Small size - I am going to epoxy a lanyard to the outside edge of it. A person could lose this quite easily (especially with three kids)
- It only uploaded the last 15 "moves" from my T4d. I am positive this is somewhere in the T4d's documentation and I just missed it. So, just take this as a point of information. It's not losing a star over it.
Overall, I'm quite pleased with this purchase and would recommend it to anyone. An easy five-star product for ease of installation and doing exactly what it promises to do. Make sure you know how to install a plug-and-play device and get the Moveslink software installed correctly for your system. I'm "PronghornRunner" over at Movescount! Drop by sometime!
Edit: One month (or so) check-in...
I have had the Movestick for about a month now. It has remained plugged into my desktop, which is housed in a cabinet. Not only has the Movestick functioned flawlessly for me for the past month, it will upload the data from my T4d THROUGH the cabinet wall. I don't even open the cabinet any more. Just hold the T4d next to it, tell it to search for PC, and my moves get uploaded! This is still an easy 5-star product!
I have it plugged into my MacBook Air 13", running Yosemite.
TrainerRoad recognizes it straight off the bat, as soon as you plug it in. No configuration or drivers needed.
After that, the Movestick is able to pick up the speed and cadence signals from my Garmin GSC-10, and my Garmin HRM.
TrainerRoad is also able to transmit Virtual Power via the Movestick. The Virtual Power is determined based on your trainer profile (I have a Kurt Kinetic Road Machine). My head unit is a Garmin Edge 500. One needs to go through a few steps to configure a power meter on the Edge 500 (i.e. it doesn't show up immediately like a GSC or HRM does). But once you tell the Edge to look for a power meter, it picks up the transmission from the TrainerRoad-Movestick combination in a matter of seconds, and you can then record your indoor trainer ride on the Garmin with the power statistics (in addition to the HRM and Speed/Cadence that the Edge picks up directly from the sensors on the bike).
In terms of build quality, the device looks just fine, and the plastic doesn't look cheap. Its small enough to be left on the laptop if you prefer. However, since my laptop sees a lot of movement around the house and outside, I don't keep the Movestick on the laptop. Instead, I have it plugged into a USB hub. When I bring my laptop to the bike/trainer, I plug in the hub, start TrainerRoad, select a workout and get on the bike. The rest happens automatically. The Movestick works fine through the hub without any problems.
Review Date: March of 2015
I am very pleased with this adapter. I currently use this to sync my power meter, speed sensor, and heart rate sensor for use with TrainerRoad. It has been rock solid and it also works great with the relay-to-garmin-device option that TrainerRoad has. It is a fraction of the cost than the one Garmin sells. It is also lower and profile and more sturdy inside of the actual USB socket than the new ant+ sticks from Garmin. I have also had the unfortunate experience of 2 Garmin brand ant+ sticks failing on me, but this one has been ticking strong. I have used this device on the following devices without ever having any issues:
Apple MacBook Pro 17" Early 2012
Apple MacBook Pro 15" Retina Late 2013
Microsoft Surface 2 Pro
3 Custom Desktops
If you want something that works - this is the one.
