SmartRow is an intelligent power meter that provides a highly precise measure of WaterRower performance. The electronics inside SmartRow measures absolute force and stroke length to calculate power output. Performance data wirelessly transmits via Bluetooth to the free-to-use SmartRow app (iOS and Android compatible).


Set your SmartRow display to show the workout metrics that matter to you, including Power (W), Work (J), Energy (kCal), Stroke Length (CM), Average Speed (/500m), and much more.


Use 84% of muscle mass every stroke. Burn calories and build strength. Minimal impact on joints and the lower back.


Force Curve mode gives feedback allowing users to optimise stroke length, peak force, and total energy every stroke.


The SmartRow app saves all workout data, personal records, and fitness variables, including heart rate (with Bluetooth heart rate monitor) and maximum power.


Suitable for anyone that is serious about improving their fitness and indoor rowing performance. The WaterRower Performance Erg is handmade in the US from sustainably sourced Appalachian Oak to ensure quality and durability. 3-year parts, 5-year frame commercial grade warranty gives peace of mind that the Performance Ergwill take all that you can throw at it and more. When not in use, fold the tablet arm away and store your WaterRower on end for space-saving storage.


Integration with popular fitness tracking apps including Strava and Apple Health. Share your results with Facebook and other social media platforms.
