Ratings and Reviews
Could be great
This has the makings of a great rowing app, but it falls flat on its face with glitches.
I have to re-pair it with Strava before every single row, or it won’t upload at the end of the workout. Also it’s not uncommon for the app to not recognize the start of a row and have to be closed out and rebooted before it will work.
The only reason I gave it two stars is that the graphics and information displayed are nice, although I’m sure diehard rowers would probably want more I depth live data
Great idea but needs major work
***UPDATE- DO NOT PAY FOR PREMIUM. I’m surprised Apple even allows this but it literally does nothing. You will not get premium features. I thought my subscription had run out and my premium features were all gone, I paid again and nothing. Tried contacting them, nothing. Tried their online chat, nothing..no one ever responds. I googled their offices in Denver and it’s basically a rent a cube space downtown. Pretty sure all it is now is a billing server in someone’s moms basement. Don’t get scammed. Bums me out because this was a great concept at the start.
The hallmark of this app is it’s consistency...it consistently doesn’t work. Constantly disconnects from the concept 2, it can rarely find my heart rate monitor. I’ve never been able to get it to sync with my Strava after the first time. I started with the free version and it seemed ok but I wanted to do custom workouts so I went for the paid version and then all my problems began. I was really hoping to use this to work out with a friend in another state but it’s so unreliable I just use ErgData now because that seems to work 100% of the time. If they would work on getting the app right instead of collecting money I would change my review. The idea is great it is just so poorly executed. Also I contacted “support” which seems non existent as far as I can tell. Save your money
Game Changer for your Concept2
It is not an overstatement to say this app changes everything with your Concept2 workouts. The best feature of this app is the ability to choose from countless workouts and the PUSH THOSE WORKOUTS to your PCM all in just seconds. No more straining your brain for something different to try and then sitting there pushing buttons on the PCM like it is 1982. You will need a special cable or a PCM5 that can connect via Bluetooth. In addition - the metrics and feedback LiveRowing provides is excellent. You can also see where you rank against other users. LiveRowing can be easily set up to push your completed workout to your Concept2 logbook as well as your Strava account. I have been using the free version for about a week and cannot overstate how much better this has made my rowing workouts. I will definitely be purchasing the paid version.
If you need to put some spice back into your relationship with your Concept2 this is the solution.
