Mate, I had the same problem and wasted about four hour's of my life that I won't get back.
It was a com port error, which was a problem with finding the right driver.
One that I installed was the problem.
I uninstalled it and it worked.
I have also found that switching USB port's made a difference once. Have no idea why.
I've just wiped my computer clean and about to do it all over again.

Just did it all again. You have to make sure you've installed the driver that's in the folder,
the proper updater, and remember that after you've updated the firmware - you have to go back again and change the connection setting to COM. It changes itself back to UMS. I had no problem with the driver after installing the one supplied, but as I said above - previously I had to uninstall a Driver that was causing the Com port error.
Hope you have a comfy seat. Good luck.
I just did Jeff's again. Give me your's next time you're up, if you don't have any luck.

That's very strange I've never seen that, the default is COM not UMS.
Unless you're loading a CFG file that is set to UMS?

Hi there,

Just a short word to let you know we just made an update on www.sportstracklive.com and you can now directly upload your SBP files from the GW-60 on our (free) platform.

We already included the feature for auto-split tracks if there is a delay of 60' of non activity detected from the track.

If you got some trouble to use it, I will be please to open an open topic here, otherwise you can off course contact us using Facebook.

Couple of quick questions I have from a distance session yesterday.

Firstly if a GW60 (and GW52 for that matter) have their battery run flat during a session and shut down will the session data up to that shutdown point be saved and able to be downloaded?

The 2nd query is with my GW60 the battery was down to no bars and just showing the battery outline. Often with electronic devices the battery icon will start to flash before the device will shut down, is this the case with the watch?

Reason I ask is as I wasn't sure I shut the watch down early to ensure I had some saved data, it'd be a real bummer to put all that effort in only to find you have nothing to upload.

Hi Jeremy, yep each data point is saved as you go, the battery going flat doesn't affect this.
I've had a GW60 go flat, but didn't notice the battery outline flashing, and I'm not sure how long after the last bar disappeared it happened. So not much help there I'm afraid.

I now carry a spare cable in the car so I can charge up after during a break.
