Strokes Per Minute is a simple intuitive app to calculate the stroke rate. It was designed by a rowing coach who consistently forgot their rating watch. Its minimal design provides an easy to use tool for rowing coaches, coxes and enthusiasts.

The app is fully customisable allowing you to calculate the stroke rate on the standard 3 stroke timer or another interval of your choosing. Simply tap to start and tap to end. On iPhone & iPad the app provides both the stroke rate and the time taken per stroke which can be a useful tool when communicating with novice rowers. While on Apple Watch only the stroke rate is shown, ideal for coxes.

Don’t want to look down at your device? Stroke Per Minute can speak the stroke rate, allowing you to keep your attention on the crew.

Pretty sure they weren't racing at a 187. This calculator says they were. Pretty sure 187 isn't possible. That's all I'm saying.

Developer Response ,

Sorry you believe the calculation is incorrect. Please remember per the on screen instructions you will need to use 3 full strokes to calculate the strokes per minute. This can be customised in the settings app.
