Re: new rower, much slower 500m split than gym rowers

Thanks all. Maybe this is in my head if there is nothing really obvious to check for and I am not really working at the same level. I will try a 500m all out row on both w/heart monitor and see how it compares.

Re: new rower, much slower 500m split than gym rowers

Ok, I thought we were on to something with the 2 out of 3 magnets. I took off the flywheel and I see the ring on the flywheel. There are two sensor things on the white plastic control unit, I thought maybe there should be one in the middle. Can't seem to figure out how to post a photo right now.

Re: new rower, much slower 500m split than gym rowers

Thanks, I think I'll take the flywheel cover off and poke around a little. Another point of reference, on the 4 gym machines if I go all out for 10 strokes I can get down to 1:45 briefly. I don't think I've ever got my machine below 2:00. I know I'm small, but I'm pretty fit and that seems really sl...

Re: new rower, much slower 500m split than gym rowers

Thanks for the responses. I did reach out to Concept2 who said it's probably just perception of effort. I guess it could be, but it seems unlikely. I'm using the drag factor on the monitor for comparison. I'm a small person, 5'6" and 135lb so I think 110 is about right. The heart monitor would be a ...

new rower, much slower 500m split than gym rowers

Recently purchased a new Model D PM5 and I've noticed my 500m split time is around 20s slower at home than on the Model Ds at the crossfit gyms I go to. That seems like a huge difference. Is there is a break-in period or something? This is at the same drag of 110. I've compared it to at least 4 othe...

Re: erratic reading pm5

I just got a new one last week and I had the same problem. At first it was fine but after a couple of days it started doing that. It popped up when I connected both ergdata and a garmin heartrate belt for the first time but I'm not sure if that was a coincidence. Anyway, mine came in with firmware 1...
