Rowing Boat Smartphone mount wing rigger

Rowing Boat Smartphone Mount

Out of stock


Smartphones are a great tool to track your rowing workouts and performance. However, you need to take them with you on the water and attach them to the boat.

Now you can with our Smartphone Mount.

Every boat is a bit unique and finding a good spot to securely attach your smartphone is not always straightforward.

The new Rowing Boat Smartphone Mount fits any smartphone or smartphone-case and can be attached to wing riggers or to the deck (2-in-1). The mount is made from solid, brushed stainless steel. Intelligently placed foam padding ensures it won’t scratch your boat.  It secures your device in a fixed position and also helps to dampen vibrations which improves measurement accuracy.

The package includes everything you need to get started and we can ship it to you internationally.

Mounting Options

Your phone case or waterproof pouch attaches to the faceplate of the rowing boat mount using the supplied Dual Lock synthetic velcro strips. Stick these to the back of your smartphone, waterproof pouch or case and “click” your phone in and out of them every time you go out on the water.

If you already have a waterproof smartphone, you can use an inexpensive silicone covers to avoid sticking the Dual Lock directly to your smartphone.

Mount on a Wing Rigger

The bracket has slots for two detachable, self-locking velcro straps that you can wrap around a wing rigger so that the bracket sits in full view on top of the rigger.

The profile of the bracket ensures minimal elevation above the rigger, typically 1-3cm depending on your smartphone’s size, to leave good clearance for the hands while rowing and sculling.

The angle of the bracket provides for a good reading angle in sunlight. Using the velcro straps the mount can be quickly and easily moved between boats.

Mounting on the Deck

Not all boats have wing riggers. Or maybe you even have one of those fancy bow-wing riggers? This mount has a piece of 3M Dual Lock synthetic velcro on the underside and comes with a counterpart you can stick on any surface, e.g. the stern canvas or behind the stroke seat.

Benefits of using the Smartphone Mount

When using sensor apps on a phone, they give inaccurate readings if they aren’t securely attached to the boat, the sensors register too many vibrations, e.g. from your sliding seat or the oars feathering and squaring giving significant “noise” to the sensor data. Worse, the calibration gets thrown off when the device changes its angle relative to the boat. Attaching the smartphone securely onto the shel solves these problems.

The foam paddings we use mechanically dampen the transfer of vibrations from the boat to the bracket. The bracket is built from very sturdy stainless steel and doesn’t amplify the induced vibrations as many other mounts do when they form a swing-arm.  At the same time the friction created between the mounting surface and the bracket as well as the faceplate and the smartphone ensures everything stays in place and doesn’t move.
