Heading from Good to Great

Used to use a competitor app but now the Workout Of The Day feature is live I find myself using this app mostly, this week finding the Real Time loop has taken it up another level, much more engaging and I look forward to this type of feature being expanded.

Would be nice to be able to update the PM5 via the app rather than via a cable to a Mac/PC, maybe one day.

Connection seems reliable though I follow the same process as for the competitor app, connect HR to the PM5, then open the C2 app and let it connect to the PM5, no issues in a few hundred row sessions.

Almost There..

Following my last review some time ago, which was submitted not long before the GUI upgrade and more contemporary look and feel, I am happy to say that the app is almost 100% useable for me.
Being picky, I would say that it just lacks a couple of small additions;
1. The ability to save data such as stroke speed/distance per stroke, stroke force etc. These ARE available real time when rowing but then disappear once the results are saved (unless I’ve missed something?).
2. To build upon the recent addition of the real time ‘loop’ course. What would be great is the ability to have real-time racing, along a simulated flat course, much on the same basis as ‘Rowpro’, which I have used in the past, but which is now too unreliable and which Rowpro don’t seem keen on fixing (as there is a whole new product release pending apparently).

Otherwise, the new look is 300% improvement on the old version and the integration with my PM5 is always reliable and seamless.
Results are always promptly saved with equally quick and reliable hook up with the online Concept2 logbook.

All we need now is an improved PM monitor (larger, in colour and with improved graphics to get away from the 1990’s DOS look) would be a good start.

Very happy with the ErgData app

Connects to the Ergs in my local Gym the first time every time. The Apple Watch connectivity is excellent, as is the compatibility with Garmin Connect - I don't need to wear any Garmin devices to have the workout logged. HR data is taken from the Apple Watch, rest of the data is from the PM5/ErgData.

There are all the data screens I need whilst rowing and the data presented after I’ve finished a session is comprehensive. I've only had to authenticate once; it's remembered me ever since.

I'm sure there are improvements I could suggest if I thought about it for long enough, but as of right now, it does exactly what I want it to do, faultlessly!
