Is it difficult to put together?The Indoor Rower requires very little assembly - just the installation of the front legs and the frame lock, using a total of 10 screws. We include the necessary tool and clear instructions with lots of pictures. Allow about half an hour for the job.
Is it easy to store?A unique self-locking system enables the monorail and seat section to be detached from the flywheel section for easy storage. The monorail is lightweight and the built-in casters make it easy for one person to move the heavier flywheel section of the Indoor Rower.
When I'm using the heart rate option available for the Rower, am I attached to any wires?No, you are not attached to any wires when using the heart rate interface available for the rower. You are wearing a WIRELESS Polar or Polar compatible chest strap. A wireless signal is sent from the chest strap to a receiver and your heart rate is displayed in the lower right corner of the display.
What type of Batteries does the Monitor use?
The older-style monitor (PM1) on the Concept 2 Indoor Rower (previously known as the ergometer) requires three Eveready 357 batteries. You can find several equivalents under different brand names. A 1.5 volt silver oxide battery is required. Once the batteries are replaced you'll need to reinitialise your monitor. To do this, press and hold the RESET button. Then press and hold the ARROW UP button. Next, release the RESET button and finally, release the ARROW UP button. This needs to be done every time the batteries are changed in the Performance Monitor 1.
The PM2 and PM2+ use (2) standard AA batteries. No re-initialisation is required with this monitor.
The PM3 uses D Cell Batteries. The Model D has a Power Generation feature meaning that when you row, you charge the batteries and supply power to the monitor, greatly extending battery life.
The PM4 for the Model D and E comes equipped with a rechargeable battery pack. The recharge rate depends on the usage pattern of the rower: the more and harder your row, the more quickly the PM4 charges. The rechargeable battery pack works only when a PM4 is installed on a Model E or D Indoor Rower, and is more effective when the PM4 is being used with a Model E Indoor Rower versus use with a Model D. All PM4s are also equipped to use two D-Cell (IEC LR20) batteries. Retrofit PM4s for Model A/B/C will come shipped with D Cell batteries.
The PM5 takes two D cell batteries. During your workout, the monitor draws power from the spinning flywheel to extend battery life.
