Great upgrade to Concept2's ErgData. It's made by the same developer only it includes greater functionality. It can be used for on-water rowing although I only use it on my Model D with PM5. To use it you have to buy the Bluetooth PM5 connection upgrade, although I would suggest just buy the Basic bundle (in-app upgrade). With it you will be able to connect to the PM5, sync with Concept2's Logbook, use training programs (main reason to use it for me), and see graphs of your workout. You can also get Heart Rate without the additional module if you pair your HRM to the PM5 instead of to the smartphone. I wish it would include Heart Rate Zones so you could do zone training in the app, instead of having to rely on another app. While a tad expensive, overall I would recommend the app for serious erging.

One of my favorites I use this to convert my phone into a speed coach on the water, and to easily log my erg workouts. Great app!

Nice with rowing live with friends and hr rate monitor support Good improvements over time. Chat in rowing with friends should be improved, but I know it is a very recent addition. Using PM3, Polar H7, Nexus 5 (Lollipop).
