Connects to FDF FluidRower!

Please don't leave negative reviews on this app. I was able to contact the developer in early March, but his response was that he was in the process of fleeing the Russian advance into Ukraine and had been forced to leave his computer and all other belongings behind.

It doesn’t work with WaterRower S4 comms 22 module + fenix 6xPro! Please fix it. The data field is under “Scanning” and after few minutes is “Disconnected”.

Managed to connect to Yesoul R40s rower machine after some debuging steps proposed by the developer. Kudos!

Great developer - there's a new FTMS rower - Whipr - that got recently released and he adapted the app in no time to make it compatibile with this one as well. So thanks for the fast solution and acting so quick.

I am not sure if I am doing something wrong. I have the S4 monitor + cam module. My Garmin 245 finds the sensor. The module works with the WaterRower app on the iPad. On the FR 245, the data field permanently says "Scanning". After about 3 -5 minutes then "S4 connected. I start with the workout and then there is scanning again ;-) What can I do?

Sorry, but I don't have an answer :( I've never seen a original S4. The only thing I can say is that the bluetooth module can only have one connection at a time, either an iPad or a watch.

Doesn't work for concept2 rowers

Thank you! Concept2 rowers does support BLE FTMS yet, so this data field can't work. PM5 v2/v3 for BikeErg and RowErg have Bluetooth FTMS enabled only https://c2usa.fogbugz.com/?W193758
