AK Concept2 Rowing

Description

The Concept2 is a popular rowing machine with ANT interface. AK Rowing is another app to</p><p> - get data from Concept2 PM5</p><p> - combine with Garmin data (like HR)</p><p> - present on Garmin screen</p><p> - forward to Garmin Connect</p><p></p><p>NEW: You can define up to ten different rowers (name, ID) and easily switch between them (helpful in studios). </p><p></p><p>!!!!!!!!! Keep in mind: Because of Garmin restrictions, it is not possible to forward distance data to native field in Garmin connect (native value is zero). As a workaround, distance is an own IQ value in the bottom. On the other side, because of this it is possible to show speed values like you configured in AK Concept2 Rowing (m/s, min/500m, min/1000m, ....)</p>

What’s New

V0.4.2:</p><p>- Changed FIT file to improve compatibility with external sites</p><p>- extended bottom right field with additional options</p><p></p><p>V0.4.1:</p><p>- Because of many requests, I introduced handling of more than one rower. It is possible to choose one of ten rowers. ID of rower can be scanned automatically or set manually. Choose device "Broadcast" if you have only one rower for your sessions :). Note: Ask for feedback in case of any issue.</p>

I've been using the app version for a long time and find it very useful. What's the difference between the app version and the data field version?

Some features (like autostart / autopause, settings menu with selection of rower) are only available on app version. With datafield version you can use features of Garmin (like training plan, interval training).

I row for 4 month’s every 2 days 45 min. Since 2 weeks the app goes after 2,5 min. off.

Some Information would be helpful: - What watch - What firmware version - What do you mean by 'goes off' ... simply ends? or with attention mark?

The new speed unit field needs two decial places. Would still like to see AK Rowing match distance on PM5. Keep up the good job.

I quit rowing for some time because I couldn’t link my descent mk1 and my concept2 PM5. This app does exactly that. The metrics and the heart rate, thank you

Great app! Thanks for making it possible to track rowing workouts. A ton of data on the Garmin watch which I'm not sure how useful they all are while rowing but nevertheless the app works nicely. One thing I'm missing is showing heart rate data on Concept2 machine.

Some Garmin watches (like FR645 and FR945) are able to send heart rate to Concept2 in parallel. To activate: - on watch go to heartrate/pulse widget - enter settings (e.g. long press up button) - choose option for heartrate/pulse - choose send during activity and switch to 'on' - start AK Rowing - on Concept2 push menu - connect and pair Garmin watch as a normal heart rate monitor.

Very nice, but when I look in the workout history it shows the time and "65535 sp". What's that? Concept 2 PM5 (older silver logo) and Forerunner 935.

Bug fixed in latest version.

Works well with Forerunner 245 and Concept2 PM5 monitor. Only Distance is not send to the watch after sync and requires it to be added manually to the activity. And app has IQ icon within the app list

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
