I was able to make the connection between PM5 on a SkiErg and my Fenix 3 HR. I was able to record several workouts. They transferred to Garmin Connect (with the issues of distance as commented on by others). However, when I try to load the FIT files into SportTracks (desktop) in get an Import Error. I know this will be on how the desktop version of SportTracks deals with newer FIT files. But, has anyone been able to solve this problem?

I'm using it with a 920xt and PM5. Apart from the connection issues it works... hmm OK. But this is sufficient for me and it records what it needs to.
The only thing i wish is something like... "Activity saved" since sometimes it shows the values but in the end it didn't upload anything after the workout. I had some issues with all the versions between the app and PM5 firmware, but now it's usable and I'm very thankful for the effort from the developer!

The watch and the PM5 paired, I see the green "ROW" message. But when I start rowing it doesn't show nor record anything on the watch. I press start on the Garmin and nothing. So good pairing but not recording activity. Anyone?

If they have been paired it should begin updating once you begin rowing. No button presses on the watch should be needed. If that is not happening, please double check the firmware on the PM5 to have the latest and then post in the forum for further help.

Eigentlich eine gute App jedoch lässt die Benutzerfreundlichkeit während der Trainingseinheiten zu wünschen übrig. Jeder Kontakt mit dem Display der Uhr (in meinem Fall der Vivoactive 3) führt dazu das nicht weiter aufgezeichnet wird und von vorne begonnenen werden muss. Leider werden sich einige Daten nicht in die Garmin Connect App übertragen.

Where is the distance?
a fix asap is highly wanted :-)

The distance is located in the ConnectIQ section in the bottom. Garmin doesn't allow the developers to replace the base fields Garmin controls.

I get some of the features to work, and the next day I have to start from scratch configuring, restarting etc. Half cooked app.
I've been trying to make it work for months. FR920XT. Terrible app.

Leider wird beim BikeErg PM5 die Entfernung nicht übernommen. App damit unbrauchbar.

Good enough for me, a bit nagging that exports to Strava is missing data but I can live with that.

Where is the distance? I can see other have pointed to this missing field. It is a critical stat! (There is something under connect IQ called Distance IQ, but it does not enter in all the real distance stats.) Please fix it for this to have any relevance Sincerely Rasmus

The potential of what this offers is great BUT i have used it twice and it does not show distance on watch or phone.......SOOOOO I guess it wont work for measuring VO2 max.....The distance does however come up in connect account....please update this app...one potentially happy customer:)

It connects but the rest is useless. The data recorded is all wrong. Hard to believe Garmin wont fix it.

No distance recorded ? How to select watch HR sensor ?

This application is really useful for all people like me who want to record their workouts in one platform. It does not have 5 stars because there are some things to improve in saving data on Garmin connect. In fact, the workout is saved correctly as indoor rowing but the fields that Garmin provides (stroke rate, peace and power) are not recognized, create their own data fields. If you could fix this problem the application is 5 stars with merit!

Sometimes hard resetind my fenix 5 in Saving.
No distance saved.

It installs ok and after a bit of tinkering connects to the concept 2, but the app turns of the heart rate monitor in my 235.... Seems to make it rather pointless ?

If you want to use the HRM in the watch (or paired to the watch) you need to configure that in settings. The default is to take the HR from the PM5.
