What is SmartRow? SmartRow is an intelligent replacement pulley for a (wooden) WaterRower, that measures the power in a radical new way. The electronics inside the pulley measures the force and stroke length and calculates the power, independent of the water level in your tank or the tightness off the recoil bungee. The data is presented wirelessly to a mobile device like a smartphone or tablet.
What are the advantages of a SmartRow? First and foremost: its accuracy. It gives you the best feedback of your workout. You can optimize your stroke with it, as it shows you the force-curve, each stroke. A great way to improve your technique! A heartrate sensor can easily be connected too, and the results are plotted during the workout. Having all your workouts stored on your mobile device is a great advantage too. You can now easily see improvements over time.
Can I connect the SmartRow app with the S4 monitor? No, you cannot. SmartRow is an independent power meter and has a direct Bluetooth connection with your mobile device.
Do I need to enter the water level in the app? No, you do not. SmartRow measures the amount of force you apply independently of the amount of water in your tank. You can change the water level to your preference and still compare your results with others in a 100% fair way.
Do I have to calibrate the SmartRow as for instance with a powermeter on a bike? You don't have to calibrate anything at all! SmartRow will calibrate itself, and in doing so, it automatically adjusts for changes in the recoil bungee over temperature and time.
Which heart rate monitors are compatible with the SmartRow? The SmartRow app will work only with Bluetooth Heart Rate monitors that use the open standardized Bluetooth protocol. There are many monitors on the market, like chest-straps, watches, arm-bands and fitness-trackers. Please check before you buy something new. Because of the accuracy we recommend to use a chest-strap.
What batteries should I use and how many hours can I row on my batteries? We advise 3 x AA 2500mAh Alkaline batteries. Other 1,5Volt AA's will do, but this may affect the number of hours you can row. Depending on the battery quality you can row at least 50 hours.
Can I change the layout of my display? If you go to settings > display options, you can turn 'advanced' mode on and off. When the advanced-mode is off, the metrics are limited for a simple layout.
If the advanced mode is on, you can personalize the metrics (settings > change display settings), and choose from the list below:
Power [W] - the power in Watts, of the last stroke
Ave. power [W] - the average power in Watts since the start of your workout
Energy [Kcal] - the energy burnt in calories since the start of the workout
Str./min/SPM - the actual number of strokes per minute
Str.length [cm] - length of the last stroke
Str.count - number of strokes since the start of the workout
Work [J] - the energy, in Joules, of the last stroke
Peak force [N] - the maximum force, in Newton, during the last stroke
Speed / 500m - the 500 meter split-time, of the last stroke
Ave. speed /500m - the average 500 meter split-time, since the start of the workout
Speed [m/s] - the speed in m/s, of the last stroke
Speed [km/h] - the speed in km/h, of the last stroke
Speed [kCal/h] - the speed in kCal/h, of the last stroke
What is Watt/kg and Watt/beat ? These are professional fitness indicators. After a workout, the SmartRow app divides the average power by the weight you entered in 'profile settings'. If you are using a heart rate monitor, the app will show you the 'Watt/beat', which is the division of average power and average heart rate.
Why should I register an account? If you register an account, and you are logged in, all your workouts will be stored on our server and will always be available on other devices. If you don't your workout-data will get lost when you switch to another device.
How do I turn on the SmartRow? One stroke will activate the SmartRow. When you see two blinking blue LED's, the SmartRow will start searching for a connection. If there is no Bluetooth connection within 1 minute it will turn itself off.
Blue LED's are blinking, now what? The SmartRow is searching for a Bluetooth connection. Open the SmartRow app and press the Bluetooth button or go to settings to initiate a connection.
A red LED turns on, what does it mean? If you're seeing a red LED, this is an indicator that your batteries need to be replaced.
I cannot get a connection with the SmartRow? Be sure the Bluetooth of your mobile device is active.
Do you see blue LED's blinking when you turn the SmartRow pulley around?
Yes, please go to Settings > Bluetooth SmartRow and connect your SmartRow.
No, please check the batteries and/or the battery connection.
I have a connection, but it does not seem to work?
Are you connected to the right SmartRow? If you initiate a connection the blinking blue LED's should turn off within two seconds. If the LED's of your SmartRow keep blinking, you are probably connected to a different SmartRow. Here, the two digit ID-number of the SmartRow will come in handy.
Is the SmartRow mounted the right way? If you are seated on your WaterRower the SmartRow battery-cable must be at the left side. If not, it is mounted incorrectly. This should be fixed first.
The WaterRower water rowers have self-regulating water resistance. The user who performs exercises on the device does not need to know about setting it because the resistance automatically adjusts to the strength with which the practitioner rows. It means that the stronger you row, the greater the resistance. In the case of devices such as water rowers, resistance is generated due to the movements of the paddle in the water tank.
Exercising with WaterRower there is no risk of "overworking". The device can be used literally by anyone regardless of age, gender or condition. WaterRower rowers work incredibly quietly, and the user can indulge in the relaxation of the sound of water noise while performing each stroke, just as if he really rowed in a boat in a natural environment.
"Rowing, indoors or outdoors, at any exercise level of intensity, requires a greater exercise expenditure thanany other aerobic activity. Calories are burned in relation to the number of muscles used and the intensity and duration of the exercise. Rowing with a sliding seat uses a very large muscle mass since the upper, lower andtrunk muscles are used vigorously."- Dr. C Everett Koop- Former US Surgeon General
The main advantage of WaterRower rowers is a high-quality manual finish, characterized by a very long life and great feeling during rowing. WaterRowers can be used in any environment, during the exercise you can hear only the natural noise of water, so they do not disturb other users in the same room.
Each stroke in the device is extremely smooth and it distributes the work to individual muscle groups. WaterRower rowers do not require complicated assembly, they do not take up a lot of space and after finishing the workout, just place them vertically. The design of the equipment has been chosen in such a way that it resembles a piece of furniture more than a training device, which is why in most cases it will look very nice and aesthetically in apartments.
Another very important thing is that WaterRowery does not require any literally any maintenance except replacing the water in the tank from time to time. The end of dirty and greased hands as in the case of other devices that need to be systematically lubricated with various types of grease.
WaterRower simulators are shorter than other similar training devices. The water system of automatic resistance is the closest to the actual rowing movement occurring in nature. Rowing on the device with just the strength of your muscles, you increase or decrease the load, which is very convenient and universal, and thus in a very easy and convenient way you can adjust the resistance to your abilities and expectations very precisely.
The WaterRower rowers were made of the best quality materials available on the market. Models: Home, Club, Oak, Maple, Blank, Classic, Club, Natural, Oxbridge, Xeno Muller, and Studio were made of high-quality wood. Models: M1 LoRise and M1 HiRise in aluminum while models: S1 LoRise and S1 HiRise from high quality stainless steel. Looking from the side, you can see that the manufacturer did not save on materials by producing their WaterRowers, thanks to which the machines are resistant to friction and mechanical damage.
We guarantee that the devices will serve without problems for many, many years and even over time will not be too different in technical condition from these new catalogs because they have been really solidly made.
What else can we say about our devices?
Certainly the fact that rowing training is one of the most popular home-grown training, engages as much as 84% of the entire body, which has a positive effect on your condition and improves your fitness and, most importantly, you can achieve spectacular results in a very short time.
The majority of WaterRowers in our offer have modern S4 V2 training computers, in addition to the Home and Studio models, because these have been equipped with A1 training computer. Computers allow you to monitor on a regular basis in order to check your achievements in a simple and transparent way and to beat your own records. You can also modify the training in such a way that it is more efficient than the previous one.
We also remind you that there are many additional accessories available for our WaterRowers, such as tablet and smartphone holders, pulse monitoring kits, cleaning kits, water dyes and equipment mats.
For monitors in version S4 V2, a pulse measurement module can be added without any major problems, which enables more accurate readings! If you decide to make a set together with a telemetry belt, then you already have all the necessary set, and if you have a computer with only a receiver, you still need to buy a telemetry belt. There are also available bluetooth modules, thanks to which there is the possibility of pairing the device with a smartphone, computer or tablet, and what goes with it can be practiced even more conveniently with additional training applications.
goes back to the late 1980s. Then American John Duke developed easy-to-use rowing equipment. He assumed that training on land should simulate conditions that prevail on the water in the most similar way. So he invented the original and unique WaterRower water rowing machine.
are presented annually among others at the world's largest International Fairs. Currently, the WaterRower brand is very popular and its offer includes products available for sale both at home and abroad.
In 2008, the WaterRower brand
won the Plus X Awards perfection prize, which is the most important distinction in the world for innovation in technology, lifestyle and sport.

Application of water resistance in WaterRower
Unlike training rowers from other manufacturers, and more specifically rowers with mechanical, air, magnetic or hydraulic resistance, WaterRower is characterized by the use of unique water resistance.
The heart of the WaterRower rowing machine is the water reservoir and the paddles enabling free manipulation of the water in the reservoir. The ergonomic design of all WaterRower rowing machine components allows maximum utilization of the water resistance potential. The use of water resistance results in a pleasant, smooth and jerk-free workout that is closest to nature.
Water resistance is self-acting, which means that it adapts itself precisely to the speed of rowing and training strength. The WaterRower rowing machine, by using water as a resistance, simulates the experience of rowing in natural surroundings and provides relaxing sound of water noise. Learn more
The most important advantages of using WaterRower water resistance:
rowing with WaterRower is gentle on the joints, water resistance is 100% self-determining, training is calm and soothing, thanks to the pleasant, rhythmic noise of the water, water shows no signs of wear - it is indestructible.
