Hi, here's an example of one that would work for a micro USB socket:

And one that would work with USB C:

https://www.amazon.com/Anker-Adapter-Co ... 558&sr=8-3

You'll see many similar ones online, and these are just examples that I found quickly, but with USB cables and adapters you generally just want to look for ones that mention something about data or transfer speeds, indicating that they are for data in addition to charging. Some of the cheapest cables and adapters only support charging, and not data transfer.

With your USB C device you also have the option of just using a cable with micro USB on one end and USB C on the other. That way you would have a single cable with no adapter. However, if you're using the WARBL bell sensor I'd recommend using one of the cables that came with WARBL, as I've verified that the plugs are slim enough to fit next to the sensor.
