Why won't TomTom Runner Cardio connect to computer?

My TomTom Runner Cardio watch is plugged into my computer and it's actively charging. The MySports app pops up and displays the message to connect my device to my computer. Hmmmm, it's already connected.... I've read the form for help and have already uninstalled and reinstalled the MySports app which didn't work. I've tried contacting support but they make it impossible to do so since there is no serial number on my watch. One forum posting advised to uninstall a driver but am not sure how to do that. If anyone has had this issue and was able to resolve it, please share. Thank you!

    Thank you for your thorough reply, tfarabaugh! My answers are below.

    1) Yes
    2) Yes
    3) Yes
    4) Yes
    5) Yes
    6) Yes
    7) Yes
    8) Turned off anti virus software then tried again. Still didn't connect.
    9) Yes
    10) I don't have a different machine to try at this time. I've had this watch 2 years and have loved it, but still can't get it to connect.

    Thanks again for taking the time to ask those questions. A few of them made me check a few things I hadn't thought of. Unfortunately, my watch still won't connect.

    The biggest issue is the dock itself. Make sure none of the pins are bent or deformed and that the contacts on the watch are clean and not worn off (they should be gold). I would call Customer Support and have them send you a new docking cable just in case.

    I hope this helped answer your question. If so, please mark it as a solution so others can look for it if they have the same question.
