Interestingly enough, the two BLE dive computers I tried with are
both Shearwaters who AFAIK require random addresses. I don't
see, however, how that would cause the error pairing.

The third one (Suunto EON Steel) I couldn't figure out how to even
pair with Windows 10...

Still trying to figure out how to get the logging to work...
