Well, it'll work fine on the computer side, but you'll need another on the Axon side.

It uses the ANT protocol, which is not built into the Axon. You'd have to figure out how to do that in software.

This device works at 4800bps, which is fine for the demo in my video, but pretty darn slow for data transfer.

I recommend just spending an extra $30 and getting bluetooth. Much easier, much faster, etc.
