How To Use Your PM1

The instructions in this section apply to the PM1.

 

The PM1 turns on automatically when you begin rowing or if you press Reset.

The PM1 turns off automatically after about three minutes of inactivity.

The PM1 displays the following information:

  • Elapsed Time—Keeps track of how long you’ve been rowing.
  • Stroke Rate—Indicates your stroke cadence in strokes per minute. This display updates each stroke at the end of the drive to show the rate of the stroke you just completed.
  • Stroke Output—Gives you instant feedback on your performance of each stroke. This display updates each stroke at the end of the drive to show you the value of your effort for the stroke just completed.
  • Total Workout—Keeps an average or cumulative record of your workout.

Changing Units

The PM1 allows you to view data in watts, pace per 500m or calories. Press Select Units to cycle through the unit options.

The PM1 takes three 1.5 volt silver oxide batteries, such as Eveready 357. One set of batteries should last for about 500 hours of rowing.

Changing the Batteries

  1. Remove the monitor bumper by pulling the rubber portion toward you until it comes off. The battery compartment is located on the upper left side of the monitor case (as you face the monitor).
  2. Use your fingernail to slide the cover down and off. You will see the three batteries inside.
  3. Pull gently on the tab provided to remove the batteries.
  4. Replace them with the same orientation: with the (+) side facing up.
  5. Replace the bumper.
  6. Reinitialize the monitor.

Reinitializing the Monitor

You will need to reinitialize your monitor after changing the batteries. To do this:

  1. Press Reset.
  2. Keep Reset pressed while you press up arrow button.
  3. Release Reset.
  4. Release the up arrow button.

Use Automatic Mode when you want to do a workout without a preset distance or time. To use the PM1 in Automatic Mode, simply start rowing. If someone has been rowing before you, and their workout values are still displayed on the PM1, press Reset to clear the monitor.

After your workout when you have stopped rowing, the PM1 waits for six seconds. If no stroke is taken in that time, the PM1 removes those six seconds from your elapsed time. At this point, the PM1 waits two-and-a-half minutes. If no rowing occurs in that time, the PM1 automatically shuts off.

  2. Start the race.
  3. Use paper and pencils to record the times displayed on the PMs as each competitor finishes.
