The Vyper Air activates automatically when you connect it. It's only
some older Suunto's that you need to go into PC mode manually (eg
Gekko or the old original Vyper, I think).

If the Vyper Air doesn't even go into "Data Transfer" mode, then that
means that the connector is not even seeing power. Which easily
happens with a wet connector or badly placed connector, of course.
