RP3 Rowing is a free application designed for the RP3 Rowing Ergo meter to run on newer Android devices. Once connected, it provides an advanced training tool that any rower or paddler can use to get real-time stroke rate, speed, distance, heart rate and other data.
The big advantage is the real time Force Curve, which gives you a detailed feedback over your rowing stroke. Every stroke of every workout is recorded and saved for later review. Additional it can upload your workouts to the RP3
Rowing Online Logbook (in a future version). You can build your own workout scheme based on
time, distance, strokes and heart rate.
Furthermore the data can be adjusted for boat type and weight to get the right
output, which can be compared with the boat you are rowing. This data is
accurate within 0,5% to the times on water.
With every stroke you have a choice out of 20 different data features to display.
Just tap a tile and you will get a list of all the possible data, select the data you
want and it will be displayed. In this way you can build your own screen.
The workout setting is easily done by adding the different training goals you like
to go for. Set a number and hit the + button and it will be added in the workout
scheme. When you start rowing the programmed workout will be shown in the
top of the screen and a pacer and a countdown will tell you how much to do.
Enjoy all future upgrades.
