Re: Using SkiErg and Rower

I used a bikeerg and rowing together in a few sessions. I set up the bikeerg with ergData on I think the iPad and then started the session on the erg with boatcoach or ergdata with an android device. It worked but that was a few months ago and there have been updates in ergdata and firmware since th...

Re: Ergdata and calorie calculation

Indoor rowing and OTW have a light weight category to balance out the size issue. Bit puzzled at 14% body fat I'd not consider myself fat. If you want to lose fat and gain fitness in the process ... start training to a a schedule pick one ... The Marathon Guide by Eddie Fletcher ... Pete Marston's P...

Re: Garmin Connect Integration

It seems that older watches sync..all singing dancing fenix 5 don't...is this correct? There is no reason why a Fenix 5 session will not be synced ... Go to the C2 Logbook site ok the Garmin connection in the profile area of the site. Then use ergData (or boatcoach or painsled etc) to record a sess...

Re: ErgData no longer works after update

Similar to me when I try on my BikeErg it crashes out when I get the connected message ... so I tried with a cable this time it crashed almost immediately... tried on the rowing erg connected with no hassle and logged the session. I'm using android v5.1 and ergdata v1.65 and BikeErg PM5 is running 3...

Re: All workouts graph 50 RPMs

Bad news since then my android devices won't connect via BT at all to the BikeErg weirdly they crash after saying they have connected in Ergdata. Both devices are ok with the rowing erg's PM5. Is anyone else having problems with ergdata connecting on the BikeErg?

Re: All workouts graph 50 RPMs

Thanks Mike ... can confirm one of my devices recorded a session ok with rpms correct, the other refused to recognise the PM5 bikeErg and kept the display on the normal erg screen mins/500m etc and would not change.

Enable ergData to work in portrait mode.

I use ergData to log my BikeErg sessions, it would be really useful if the app, both iOs and Android, could work in portrait mode this would allow more splits or repetitions in interval sessions to be displayed.

Re: All workouts graph 50 RPMs

I have reported this sometime ago and have been promised an update to the Android ergData. BTW the iOS ergData doesn't have this problem.

ergData/PM5 v323 Interval problems

Since I updated from 320 to 323 my bikeErg PM5 has not been behaving properly when doing interval sessions. I have set up both simple and complex interval sessions and both are affected by this bug. The session is set up normally and the first part is ok but when the 1st part has ended the message '...

Re: Recommend good apps/games

The last I looked at rowpro they said there was going to be an app. My own favourite is Boatcoach there is an option to erg against someone else. The C2 PMs do have a graphic for a pace boat ... I use BC because you can save the session set-ups and can set up a session away from the erg and when you...

Re: Acceptable differences between rowers

I guess there are a few options in cases like this: get your own equipment, expensive but at least you can exercise when and how you want. put up with it until the gym replaces it meanwhile griping about bad maintenance of the existing equipment. persuade the gym to allow you to do a free clean... o...
