Rowing in Motion App 3.4.0 – featuring workout programs

With this release, we’re shipping a long awaited feature: create and row custom workout programs with the App. But we’ve worked on many other parts of RiM as well.

Improvements to the Apps

Creating or Editing a Workout Program

This is the first release of this new feature and we are eagerly awaiting your feedback on it. While we’re trying to validate whether the programs have everything in them that you’ll need, we are working on the second part of this feature which is making the workout results instantly reviewable in the App as well in Analytics.

When beginning a new rowing session, define basic parameters.

Rowing a Workout Program

Since you’ll now may want to setup a workout program right before you get out on the water, we’ve made  a small change to the “start a rowing session” flow.

Prepare session

Just before we start an exercise session, we give you a chance to properly mount your smartphone to the boat so that all you’ll have to do once you’re in the boat is to tap the start button.

During the workout, the App will overlay the remaining time or distance in the current interval, target stroke-rate and also direct you through the workout program by announcing the next interval in time.

In any case, here’s the full changelist for the Apps below.

Material Design

The Android App has received a touch-up to use the new Material Design standards and looks arguably more sexy than ever.
