Connect my DC Athletics rower

EXR is currently supported on the Colorado Pro and on the Potomac Regatta. The app only connects via Bluetooth.

How to connect via Bluetooth:

  1. Activate your rowing machine’s Bluetooth by pulling its handle and clicking on the Bluetooth button. Wait until the Bluetooth icon appears on your rower’s screen.
  2. Open EXR's connection screen and click on Connect rower. Select your rower from the list of available machines and wait until you're connected.
  3. Select Finish setup to start your workout.

A Word on Watt/split Output and Leaderboards

DC Athletics measures your output with its internal pulley drive system. It’s a direct measurement to calculate your wattage in the pull phase. This means that the higher your stroke rate is, the more watts you produce. The rowing machines may display a lower power output compared to other rowing machines which are calculating in a different manner, including an interpolated figure for the return stroke. This may result in a different (lower) rank on EXR’s leaderboard as compared to rowers with other rowing machines.

Please keep this in mind when you use the training mode as EXR uses power output and stroke rate as independent variables.
