• Now you can swipe up and down on the main screen to change the stroke rate!
• Now with more realistic recovery ratio options.

A rower‘s metronome. Use sound and graphics to coach rowing cadence.

• Have a difficult time teaching the concept of ratio?
• Used the term “3:1 ratio” but your rowers just don't get it?
• Need to reduce check in your boat?

Set a stroke rate — Choose a ratio — Hit Start.

Watch the graphic and listen to the sounds. (A continuous tone on the drive, short beeps on the recovery.) In minutes your crew will be rowing along to the metronome with perfect ratio.

Use it on an erg, from the launch or even in the coxswain’s seat.

Next step: quick catches! Good luck!

Metrownome: The rowing metronome.

Just what I wanted!

I wanted to be able to watch Netflix on my iPad while I rowed but I also like watching somebody to help keep my stroke rate consistent. The little stick figure reminds me to use a good stroke!

I’d love if you could set up a playlist to auto change the rate based on distance or time but it’s still great!

Great Potential

This app is great when learning ratio and rhythm. I use the app on an old iPhone while rowing my ERG Concept 2. I wish the app was able to have PIP Picture in Picture so I’m not using two devices. Also creating workouts like HIIT, dynamically increasing SPM, would be great.


The perfect tool

I’ve been using this for years and it has made all the difference in not only my timing but my technique. I love that I can have it running, providing the beep-cues and the awesome stick rower, AND have music playing. Highly recommended!
