    Hello, 

    Please support indoor rowing on this device. Specifically synchronization whith the concept 2 pm5 rower. Many of your competitors support sync with this device (see Garmin, Fitbit, and Apple) and clearly people who buy your product are asking for it and use this function :

    I agree, indoor rowing would be a worthwhile Activity option. Syncing with a chest HR monitor and partnering with the WaterRower app would also be a great addition.

    This feature would make even more sense currently - with self-isolation and restrictions on outdoor activities here in the Uk, my indoor rowing is my mine form of exercise.

    That is my main mean of exercise as it is the only thing that can train most parts of my body. How do you guys record it right now.

    @Devs please add some indoor rowing support. It is the only reason why I still prefer my old Huawei watch over my Withings watch.

    I'm only 12 days into ownership so I'm just learning about which activity is best. I first tried using the Rowing activity, but that wanted to use assisted gps to track my location. I next tried using the Fitness activity. It didn't use assisted gps so that was good, but it also didn't seem to track my HR.

     

    Still looking for the best activity for Indoor Rowing that will record time, HR, calories. Reps would be a nice feature or fully integrating into the WaterRower app for HR, distance, cadence, etc. would be ideal.

    I returned my steel HR sport because of this. It doesn’t seem like they are investing a lot into products already out. I haven’t found much third party interest either

    We have three watches (2x Scanwatch and a Stell HR) and a Concept 2 PM5 unit, we would like to request this feature as well. We kinda assumed it was possible OTB, but was apparently mistaken.

    So if our comments in any way can have weight on the issue, let it be known that we would really enjoy/request this integration.

    Kind Regards,
