Rowing Workouts with Apple Watch


Power Row iPhone/Apple Watch App (iTunes store link)

We just published a rowing app for the Apple Watch which may be of interest to users of this site. The Apple Watch currently only records HR/calories for rowing workouts.

This app records strokes, SPM, estimated distance, duration, calories, and heart rate — using the motion sensor on the Apple Watch. The paired iPhone app displays rowing workout history so you can track your progress.

Feedback is certainly appreciated, and hopefully this is useful to some of you!

    But what about in the boat? I just want a app that keeps track of distance and time. Maiby SPM and split?

      Christian – we found the Running app gives distance, time and also a map of where you went. Nothing yet AFAICS for rating (SPM) and split on an Apple watch.

    Will the app be updated to use the GPS feature in the Apple Watch series 3?

    1. Rebecca Caroe

      Kevin – will have to wait – the Series 3 was only released last week!

    I went onto the app store to view the app. It has no ratings…. and if I want to try it I need to spend £2.99. How do I know it’s any good?

      Agree, Sabrina – that’s tough. We don’t write the apps – we just share the information. Find the developer link and contact them direct?

    Garmin’s watch does what I want Apple Watch to do. Should be easy one would think.
