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.):
  • iPhone Connection Kit (Required for PM3s and PM4s. Also required for PM5s if not using a wireless connection.):
    • Order part number 2780 for $35.00.
    • Includes an iConnectConcept2 cable as well as a cradle to hold your iPhone or iPod touch
  • Smartphone Cradle
    • Order part number 1098 for $5.00 (not needed if you purchase the kit (part number 2780), because it is included in the kit; 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: The current version of ErgData is not compatible with iOS 9. This will be fixed in the next beta release of ErgData. If you are interested in this beta release, please email scotth@concept2.com.
