Have you considered using analytical performance tools to improve your rowing and gain a competitive advantage? Are you seeking a cost effective alternative to existing devices on the market? If you have a smartphone, you need to check out the CrewNerd app by Performance Phones LLC.

What is CrewNerd?

CrewNerd is a smartphone alternative to Nielsen-Kellerman’s SpeedCoach device, available on Android, iOS and Windows Phone platforms. The app uses GPS technology in your smartphone to accurately calculate stroke rates, distance, speed and more, across a variety of rowing shells and vessels. Information is acquired wirelessly through your mobile device and then relayed to web servers. From there, it can be downloaded and analysed by you or your team to track your progress using a variety of desktop programmes or websites.

Features and Benefits:

  • Full range of information available: time, distance, stroke rate, stroke count, speed/pace, average speed/pace, interval number, direction, time of day, check factor, bounce factor, total distance, and meters per stroke.
  • Thanks to recent updates, the GPS tracker now takes up to 10 readings per second – ensuring every stroke is measured and recorded with pinpoint accuracy.
  • The live tracker feature allows coaches and spectators alike to observe your rowing performance precisely as it happens.
  • The user interface is largely influenced by the design of existing Concept 2 Ergo and SpeedCoach monitors, meaning it is both familiar and simple for users to operate.
  • CrewNerd can be connected to a range of heartrate monitors to provide information on fitness performance.
  • Display can be configured to show as little or as much information as you wish.
  • Data can be exported and used by external websites and compatible desktop programmes.
  • Configurable workouts. Upload them straight to your Trainingpeaks or Sportlyzer accounts.

How much does all this cost?**

A free ”trial mode” download is available on Android for evaluation purposes only and is limited to 100 strokes or 5 minute sessions.
The full version can be unlocked for US$1.99 per month in the USA. Other regions are subject to price variations.

Full Version
US$49.99 for iPhone 4, 4s, 5 (running iOS 7.1)
£31.99 on Windows Phone.

**A whole lot more if you don’t have a waterproof case – save that additional expense and go get a waterproof case here.
