How To Use Your PM4

Using the PaceBoat/PaceSkier

There are two ways to set up the PaceBoat/PaceSkier feature. You can enter a value for the Optional PaceBoat/PaceSkier Setting whenever you are setting up a workout with the New Workout function or you can use the ReRow/ReSki function to use a split-by-split replay of a prior workout.

Note: In general, a split is 1/5 of a workout. There are a few exceptions to this; for example, splits for 2000m workouts are set at 500m, and splits for a marathon (42,195m) are set at 2000m. See Understanding Splits for more information.

Optional PaceBoat/PaceSkier Setting

This setting gives you a consistent PaceBoat/PaceSkier. You can define the Optional PaceBoat/PaceSkier Setting anytime you are setting up a workout with the New Workout function (Select Workout > New Workout). During your workout, the PaceBoat/PaceSkier setting is displayed at the bottom of the PM screen.

Using the ReRow/ReSki Function

Choose the ReRow/ReSki option when you want to re-do a past workout. To do this, you will either need a USB flash drive (PM5s only) or a LogCard (PM3s/PM4s) that contain past workouts, or have some workouts in the PM Memory.

Rowing or Skiing Against Another Person’s Workouts

There are three methods to row or ski against another person’s workouts:

  • Have the other person exercise without a LogCard or USB flash drive so that their workout will be stored in PM Memory. Then use the ReRow/ReSki option to select that workout and row/ski against it.
  • Have the other person ("Person A") row or ski with a LogCard or USB flash drive so their results are saved to the LogCard/USB flash drive. Use LogCard/USB flash drive > List by Type to find their workout. Select ReRow/ReSki, and then remove the LogCard/USB flash drive from the monitor. Person B now rows/skis, and has Person A's PaceBoat/PaceSkier driven by Person A's results. Person B's results will be stored to PM Memory. After the workout is complete, insert Person B's LogCard or USB flash drive and transfer the workout from PM Memory. Person B's results are now on Person B's LogCard/USB flash drive.
  • Use RowPro, which provides a rerow feature. RowPro is a third-party product developed by Digital Rowing and is not a Concept2 product.
