PM5 Performance Monitor

Part #1818

The Performance Monitor is the “brain” behind each RowErg, SkiErg and BikeErg. It’s what truly sets us apart! Be confident knowing your results are comparable from day to day and from one erg to another. Easy menu-driven operation offers pre-programmed and custom workouts for daily motivation. Reliable feedback takes your training up a notch. Create and save your favorite workouts, play games, or review past results.

The PM5 comes standard with every new RowErg, SkiErg and BikeErg purchase, and is also available as an upgrade on all ergs.

Important! Be sure to select the correct machine type and model type when purchasing a PM5.

Power Generation

The PM5 uses two D cell batteries. 
When using a PM5 on SkiErgs or on Model D, E or Dynamic Indoor Rowers, there will be no drain on the batteries while the machine is in use, because the spinning flywheel powers the monitor.
When using a PM5 on Models A, B or C Indoor Rowers, the monitor is powered solely by the two D cell batteries (included in the retrofit kit).

Retrofitting a PM5 to a Model D

When retrofitting a PM5 to a Model D you have two options: to purchase just the monitor (PN 1818) or to purchase the monitor with new mounting hardware (PN 1834).

While the PM5 will fit on the existing monitor arm, the new monitor arm (included with PN 1834) allows for improved monitor cord routing for a tidier overall finished look. The retrofit you choose is up to your personal preference.
