WATERROWER SMARTROW 

There is no substitute for a full body workout that involves not only cardiovascular but resistance and engages just about every single muscle in your system. Several years ago, I purchased WaterRower Club, and this been a permanent solution to improving my posture and overall conditioning workout 1 to 2 times per week. As I discussed in my initial WaterRower review, is that the rower was lacking an App with Bluetooth and finally it’s here… it’s called the SmartRow. The SmartRow wireless he transmits all data in real time dynamics to a SmartRow App on your handheld device. The advanced technology investment of this unit is quite impressive as it automatically calibrates as the unit adjust for changes in bungee tension, temperature and time. SmartRow measures precise rowing data which includes power curve, stroke length and with a Bluetooth HR strap measures Heart Rate. SmartRow is available in both iOS and android devices. The SmartRow is expensive at $275 as my WaterRower Club was around $1095. Maybe future purchase could include the SR instead of the S4 unit.  The installation required a little time and effort which took around 35 to 40 minutes but has worked flawlessly from that point. The SmartRow App allows you in real time to view, track and analyze your progress in rowing dynamics to improve your ability and of course your athletic performance. The SmartRow is an impressive advanced technology that sets the WaterRower apart from any other rowers on the market especially with the App that connects seamlessly for live workout data and the most accurate Ergometer measurements I’ve used to date.
