UART is the standard name for the RS-232 serial port present on a PC.Actually,I don't know if there's a RS-232 on the Numan Athletics PCB,and in my humble opinion if there is the test should be done by connecting two PCBs with the respective cable or by doing a "loopback" test with one PCB.

RS-232 is the standard, and the UART is the chip that is commonly used in PCs and such as an easy way to implement the hardware side of serial communications. It has the clock generation, data TX/RX and on better models, a small FIFO buffer. In short, it's a device that implements the RS-232 standard in hardware for easy use by software.
