polar M600 smartwatch misbehavior

If I plug my Polar M600 in to a PC to charge, it repeats the following message in kern.log
Code: Select all

This repeats about once per second and would shortly fill my drive if I left it plugged in to charge. This leaves me with a couple questions.
- Can I do something to inhibit this behavior so I can charge the watch without having to suspend the laptop?
- Can I leverage this behavior to mount the device? The messages (and momentary appearance of the device in a file browser) seems to hint that this might be possible. I'm not aware of any USB functionality beyond charging but the charging connector does have 4 contacts so the data pins are there.

If it matters, the watch is now running Android Wear 2.0.

Thanks!

Edit: I'm running Debian 9RC, Gnome desktop.

So, what does Debian have to do with this ?

I don't see what the problem is with that too short log snippet. But you can adjust tracker and what it touches.

i'm running Debian. I guess I should have specified that the messages are on a Debian host when the watch is connected.

USB devices normally automount so I guess yes. (This is not something I have tweaked so it would be the default
behavior.)

It repeats about every second. At some point it will fill my root file system. BTDT - not much fun.

Is there any way to get the mount to complete successfully or not try at all? (Hopefully without having to disable automount for other devices.)

Thanks all for the replies.

firstly disable automount and see if it helps with the log messages.
then we can think about ways to do that only for the smart watch (or what have you come up with so far? you know the doubleduck is your friend).

are those log messages all you see?
everything ok besides that?
does your hard drive indeed fill up?
where is kern.log?
