The RowP App measures and gives instant feedback on your rowing technique. On water or indoors.
On water rowing:
For free: stroke rate, boat acceleration and speed as well as time and distance.
To get the most of the App you need a separate Pod to measure and analyze how you are moving your oars and seat.
The pod is available at http://www.rowingperformance.com/shop and you can easily attach the pod on either oar or on your seat to get instant feedback on your technique.
Your phone should preferably be water proof since you need to rigidly attach it on the boat, somewhere close to the foot stretcher where you can see the feedback.
The App provides the following graphs: Boat Acceleration, Oar Blade flight path, Oar Performance, and Seat Speed. Also we provide traditional metrics such as SPM, speed, distance and time. You can see your oar stroke angle in real time each stroke as well as your maximum seat speed during your drive.
You can only have one pod attached at any one time so to measure two oars at the same time you need two phones. However, it is easy to move the pod from one oar to the other even while you're on water.
Attach the phone to the indoor rowing machine handle and the pod to the seat (Concept2) or body of the machine (RP3, C2 on slides) to get instant feedback on your indoor rowing technique.
The RowP App gives information on the rhythm of your drive and recovery. It gives instant feedback in terms of numbers as well as two graphs showing the speed of the handle and the seat (or legs).
Analyze the data in detail after rowing:
The measured data can be uploaded to the Quiske web portal for closer analysis. You need a separate subscription to enable uploading, storing and analyzing data in our web portal. There's a rower's subscription which lets you store and analyze your own data. There's a separate subscription for coaches which allows comparing the data of the rowers in your crew.
The purchase of a RowP pod includes 6 months of Rower level subscription.
