I have used my rower more in the past two weeks than the past 4 years!!

Purchased a Water Rower about 4 years ago with Smart Row, used it maybe 5 times. It sat and collected dust next to my bike which I preferred. Upgraded the rower with Ergatta upgrade , two weeks ago and have rowed everyday. I view the workouts as gamification, it keeps me engaged. The open row has outdoor videos to keep your mind occupied. My only regret is not getting this when I purchased the rower. Highly recommend getting this upgrade!!!

WaterRower Upgrade Package

The Upgrade Is As Good As They Say

Absolutely, totally changes the manner in which I use the WaterRower, and that's a good thing. Previously I'd used it about 8 to 10 times a month; now, it's just about every single day.

I LOVE the stats, ability to see my progress, frequently-added new programs, and the included music (that I stream to my AirPods). Also, the variety of types of programs and workouts is great. I'm one of this people who actively dislikes somebody yelling at me to push harder in my workouts, so the live trainers on the screen really don't do it for me. This is close to perfect.

The build quality is very good, and it adds only a tiny bit of additional volume to the unit when I stand it on end in our home gym, allowing others in my family to do their own thing.

I love it and can't wait to see what's coming in future updates!
