The SmartRow App (together with the SmartRow-conversion) will turn your WaterRower into a lab grade ergometer. It will not only show you power, distance, work-per-stroke, calories etc., it will show you each force-curve, heart rate graph and much, much more! It keeps track of your workouts, and even shows you well-known fitness metrics like 'Watts-per-Beat' and 'Watts-per-Kilogram'. It even syncs your workout data with Apple Health.

This is the best training tool you can invest in—after hiring a coach, of course!

Great app for WaterRower owners.

Admittedly this app doesn’t have all the features I wanted, but I have a feeling they’re coming. Things that are good... lots of rowing details, things that will help me become a better tower. I rely on Apple health a lot, so I’m glad it shares “workouts” with Apple health. The strava integration is great, and the integration with my polar H10 chest sensor is good too. I am coming to this app from polar beat, so there’s a few things on my wish list that I hope they include soon, like complete heart rate stats, and a split for fat burning vs aerobic fitness. My only concern is that the calories burned during exercise seems to differ from polar beat by about 25%, which is a considerable difference. Looking forward to the updates. 4 star rating reflects the missing features that would make it perfect for me. But to be clear, what is already included is fantastic!

Wish it did more with distance

The app is better since the recent update. BUT I wish you could make distance workouts and also when you set the screen for distance row (not a workout) I wish it went by 50’s. My coach likes to do a lot of 150m or 250m sprints and I have to set it higher and then just stop at the right distance.

Great Customer Support

The app is great. I wish it integrated better with Garmin and TrainingPeaks (it exports to Strava and you can import from there and as I understand they are working on a data portal to manually pull your data), regardless the app and the analysis it provides is pretty great. Its interesting that like swimming - a long, powerful smooth stroke goes a lot longer than high SPMs (not a rower so wasn’t obvious to me). There are certainly glitches here and there but I have to say that customer support is amazing.
