Highly recommended for the serious rower. I have a C2 and use the app to connect to my PM5 and HRM via bluetooth. I corrupted one of my session files and the developer worked with me closely to get it working.
Good app Only app that I know of that allows a rower to collate all erg, water, and HR data in one place. Probably an excellent coaching tool for independent scullers and small boat men with the maps and graph up grades, but I haven't used it that way....yet. For me the killer app is the ability it gives you to hook up a fundamentally superior Bluetooth HRM to a Pm3 erg. For less money than an ergstick. A full training plan tool and time in zone Hr tracker would make this pretty much perfect.
Unable to evaluate with my Nexus 5x / PM5 as bluetooth is a premium feature
Great upgrade to Concept2's ErgData. It's made by the same developer only it includes greater functionality. It can be used for on-water rowing although I only use it on my Model D with PM5. To use it you have to buy the Bluetooth PM5 connection upgrade, although I would suggest just buy the Basic bundle (in-app upgrade). With it you will be able to connect to the PM5, sync with Concept2's Logbook, use training programs (main reason to use it for me), and see graphs of your workout. You can also get Heart Rate without the additional module if you pair your HRM to the PM5 instead of to the smartphone. I wish it would include Heart Rate Zones so you could do zone training in the app, instead of having to rely on another app. While a tad expensive, overall I would recommend the app for serious erging.
Ergdata covers most needs already Same developer for free Ergdata app. Boat Coach adds some more stuff but not worth hefty fee per user. Has to be most expensive app in google play. Developer very responsive to questions but inflexible on price. Really glad he made deal with C2 on Ergdata app which I use all the time. Look forward to graphing being added to free app.
Lots of features I haven't used this for a while but am pleased to see that the developer has added new feature upon feature.
1. Added an "erg calculator" which is accessible from the erg dashboard.
- Calculate time, distance or pace
- Calculate adjusted pace and time based on your weight
- Table with projections of how fast you can row distances of 500m to 100,000m based on Paul's Law
2. Some people were seeing blank screens when using rowing MAPS. This issue should now be fixed.
