Update Broke Connectivity

The app provides minimal information but at least it connected to my phone BEFORE the recent update. Now it doesn’t recognize my device and crashes if I try to connect my rower as a new device.

Updated Review: The developer fixed the connectivity issue! I am happy with the information the app provides, though I understand if others want something more. But it provides basic workout data and does it well.

Bare Bones

This app looks sleek. And when I first set it up it seemed to work nice and easily with my Bluetooth Comm. I connected it to Strava and it uploaded my first two workouts. I also found it connected quickly to my TickrX HRM.

However, today it wouldn’t upload my workout to Strava. Then I found that I could add manual activities, but not delete them. And when I looked for a help section or a way to contact app support I haven’t found a thing or a way to contact support.

So when the app works it works great. Doesn’t have bells and whistles, but it looks nice and does what it needs to do. However, when it doesn’t work there doesn’t seem to be any way to get any help or support which is very frustrating.

Monitor and App connection is not impressive

I own both a C2 RowErg with PM5 and the WaterRower with the Series IV PM with S4 Comms 33. I am less than satisfied with WaterRower, the App and PM. The Rower is nice and has a great sound and feel, the PM is OK. This is the Nth workout the monitor and app have not connected and basically wasted. I feel like I wasted the money updating the PM to the S4 and Bluetooth upgrade. Half the time they won’t connect, and half the time they do it won’t sync my workout. At least if it would save on the PM it could transfer later like the PM5. If you are looking between getting the C2 RowErg or the WaterRower I would recommend the C2 9 out of 10 times. The one time I wouldn’t is if you just want to row and not log data then the WaterRower is fine. Feeling frustrated.
