Skiing for the Visually Impaired

The Concept2 RowErgs, the Concept2 SkiErg and the Concept2 BikeErg are all terrific training options for visually impaired athletes. They offer safe and challenging fitness activities, and they provide a great way to train for rowing, skiing and other sports. Thanks to indoor racing, they also provide an opportunity for competition.


The following software and applications are available for use with Concept2 RowErgs, BikeErgs and SkiErgs to voice your performance data during your workouts.


Designed to run on iOS and Android devices, ErgData is a free application that provides additional statistics, stores and displays your workout results, and uploads your workouts to the Concept2 Online Logbook. If you are running iOS 7, ErgData will work with the VoiceOver features on your iOS device to announce your workout data. When running ErgData with a PM5, the PM5 connects to your device wirelessly; running ErgData with a PM3 or PM4 requires a connection kit (available from Concept2) to connect your device.

Note for Android Users: ErgData voice features are available for iOS devices only. The third party app, BoatCoach offers voice features for Android devices.
