Rechargeable Batteries for Hours of Rowing
The rechargeable batteries provide 5 to 8 hours of rowing time between charging (backlight use dependent). Flexible USB recharging allows you to use a charging “brick” for in-locker charging if desired.
Also Works with an Impeller
The SpeedCoach GPS also allows you to use your impeller for water-based measurements if you have a wired boat. For rowers who prefer the consistency of water-based measurements for training when available, this makes it easy to always have the performance data you want, in any shell.
