This has a very good potential! It's an app I was waiting for ... however few things should be improved. First of all, distance, pace, stroke rate, heart rate, calories etc. is shown on the Garmin Connect website only as "ConnectIQ" data points. So in all statistics that Garmin does automatically (like your "daily summary"), you'll see "0" meters, calories etc. Time is fine. I think that a related problem is that no intensity minutes were counted for my workout recorded using the app (I did 20min/5km rowing). I know that this is probably problem in the Garmin side as well ... but it's annoying. The second thing is .. I have both rower and skierg, when I want to switch from one to the other I have to wait until one PM5 turns off. In the app only one PM5 can be seen. The app only asks whether you want to pair it or not. No way to choose one PM5 over another. No idea if this is doable but it would help a lot if this was possible. What is good is that it is possible to connect PM5 to both this app and Android ErgData app.

Seems wrist HR can't be shown, neither Fenix 5 display and PM5 display. Chest heart rate monitor must be pairing apart to see heart beat

Hi. Wonder how you connect this? I have a Fenix 5x and is it possible to use it with the wrist hr as hrm? Best.

I have a FR 920xt. All fields are populated except the distance. Anyone else having issues? Great ap otherwise

Been using this app for a while, the information it puts into Garmin Connect is far more detailed than anything Ive seen. I even had my 920XT working with my IPhone running ERGData both connected at the same time and recording everything the PM5 was throwing out. Thanks for all the hard work

More a question of need assistance than anything else. I have a Vivoactive HR plus Garmin premium heart rate strap. Installed App, Gym has PM5 unsure where to get firmware version from. PM5 only wanted to pair to the HR strap (I think) wifi light flashes on rear of display. Could not initiate start of program? So nothing recorded, please help? Should have started by itself, or are there buttons to try(unsuccessful so far) or do I push the green arrow. At a loss for ideas at this stage so need assistance

Hi . I liked this app a lot and really appreciated that someone had tried to integrate garmin and concept 2 given that my two exercise preferences are running (garmin) and erg (Concept 2). Two comments 1. the data from Concept 2 does not migrate to all the fields in garmin (eg. distance, stroke rate, etc) 2. I had sync problems. On two occasions after using this app my watch would not synch to garmin connect and I had to unistall Garmin Express and reinstall it then sync on my PC to solve the problem Given (2) and the instability issue I stopped using the app. It's a great idea though

Just what I needed! It took some experimentation to learn how to set with the PM5 but Isse now that there is further advice available on the Concept2 forum.

Fantastic app! I am able to pair both my vivoactiveHR/ErgIQ and my iPhone/ErgData to the Concept2 PM5 during workouts, so my rowing workout data is saved to both Garmin Connect and Concept2 logbook. Using the native "Indoor Row" activity on the vivoactiveHR requires starting the activity *just* before the first stroke in order for the workout duration to be accurate and to match what is logged on the Concept2 PM. With ErgIQ you just pair to the Concept2 PM and start rowing when you please, no need to start the activity. This doesn't sounds like a big difference/deal, but there is nothing worse than getting done with a workout only to find out you forgot to start the activity on your Garmin device. I have rowed dozens of sessions on two different Concept2 rowers (with correct/updated PM5 firmware) and had ZERO issues - it just works. Thank you!

great work.. the no of strokes on my 5x is completely off but the app works smoothly.

The stroke count should match exactly. Are you looking at the graphs labeled Connect IQ and at the bottom of the page under Connect IQ in the session section? If so, please use the contact developer link to work through it.

Excellent - one thousand times better than Garmin's indoor row effort. Pairs well with the Concept2 and easily. Garmin Connect doesn't seem to pick up all the data though which is disappointing

I greatly appreciate the effort in developing this much needed interface -- not an easy (or even possible) task to get multiple systems (Concept2 / Garmin / TrainingPeaks / etc) all working together. Getting my data automatically sent to Garmin and Training Peaks is remarkably helpful. Looking forward to further functionality (? drag factor / watts / calories / etc) and fewer hiccups with connectivity as this app matures. Thanks again!!

I use with my Fenix 3 and my PM5. It works really well other than you have to enter the distance manually on Garmin Connect as it doesn't record it. A minor but also major flaw in the app, would be great if this gets fixed soon.

Developer Reply

This is not a limitation of the application, the distance is recorded and in the FIT file. Garmin doesn't use this and won't allow the developer to supply this data in Connect. Other sites like Training Peaks and SportTracks use this data correctly. I would recommend going to the forums and posting your request in the ErgIQ thread so Garmin can see the need.

I use this application with an Edge 1000, but when saving the exercise to garmin connect, the distance traveled stays at zero. Will this be corrected in a future version? Thanks for this application!

Fiver stars to the developer and the team at Concept2 that work with him. I think the functionality of this app is awesome, and the responsiveness of both the developer and the Concept2 team is great. Hopefully the Garmin Connect ecosystem can bend a little bit to enabling rowing specific fields and unit parameters so that all of the information from a workout can be utilized and viewed in Connect. This is something the rowing community needed for a long time!

I do not want to give this any less than 4 because finally someone has taken the time and care to bring an interface to Concept. While rowing it displays all the activity accurately; however, when saving the workout (yes, both Concept and Fenix 3 HR show saving) it displays wrong information on the watch - totally off. Weird thing is when you go into the Garmin App - the lower portion of the data is all correct - just does not seem to translate to the Garmin Website or Watch Activity correctly. Hoping a future update fixes this as I am really excited something is in development.

This app is great! Thanks to the developer, would be actually even better if one could display the watt and all the other information from the PM5. Great work, thanks!
