EXR introduces badges

Blisters on your hands, stiff muscles and soreness for days… your last training was demanding but you made it! Because you can be proud of your successes and wear them as a badge of honor, we got a little something for you in the May update.

In short…

Beat the monthly challenges and show off your badges! The category verified workouts has been added to the training mode and includes workouts that can be used for rankings in the Concept2 logbook. EXR’s performance on Apple TV 4k has been improved and its time input fields have been fixed. Also the pause blocks of custom workouts work again.
