iOS Requirements

ErgData is a free application designed to run on an Apple iPhone or iPod touch. It supports Bluetooth Smart wireless connectivity for connecting the iOS device to a Concept2 Indoor Rower or SkiErg equipped with a PM5 monitor. For Concept2 Indoor Rowers and SkiErgs equipped with a PM3 or PM4, ErgData requires an iPhone Connection Kit (available from Concept2) to establish the connection. PM5 users who plan to connect wirelessly need only the Smartphone Cradle.

iOS Requirements

  • Concept2 Indoor Rowers or SkiErgs equipped with a PM3, PM4 or PM5 (Important: Please review the Known Issues to ensure Performance Monitor compatibility prior to purchase.):
  • LiveRowing Connect Cable Required for PM3s and PM4s. While this cable will connect to a PM5, it is not required as the PM5 can connect wirelessly to an iOS device via Bluetooth.
  • Smartphone Cradle
    • Order part number 1098 for $5.00 (not needed if you purchase the LiveRowing Connect Cable, because it is included with the purchase; if you have a PM5 and plan to connect wirelessly, the cradle is all you need.)
  • A compatible iOS device, running iOS 7 or above. Refer to the following table. Note: Only versions 1.2.39 or later support iOS 9.
