Whether you are the coach of a D1 team, an elite rower striving for national success, a dedicated masters rower or a new “Learn to Row” graduate, you need the right equipment to achieve your goals. The SpeedCoach GPS 2 is the perfect training tool for rowers of all levels.
The SPC GPS 2 is designed specifically for rowing and packs a punch in its compact size. When NK set out to design a GPS-based rowing monitor, we selected a high resolution 5Hz GPS module for more precise speed and location data, and combined that with proprietary acceleration algorithms for accurately determining stroke rate and effective speed per stroke. We also selected a unique extremely high contrast and resolution monochrome display that never washes out in the sun and is brightly backlit for night-time rowing. Finally, we placed rugged buttons on the top of the unit where they’re easy to operate in the boat, and designed simple, intuitive menus for accessing all of the SpeedCoach functions.
The SpeedCoach Training Pack really turns your SpeedCoach into your training partner. Hold yourself accountable by programming interval workouts in minutes. On the water, both work and rest intervals feature a clear visual countdown indicator, and work intervals are summarized on screen to help you set targets for your next effort. The flexible interval format accommodates virtually any workout your coach can dream up, and interval results are precisely summarized in memory, making it easy to row time trial pieces for comparison. Transfer memory data to your Mac or PC using the LiNK for computer program and NK Bluetooth® Low Energy USB Dongle or your iOS or Android device using the NK LiNK app.
Add a heart rate belt for heart rate display and memory. Order the Empower Oarlock, for unmatched display of stroke technique and power measurements and download your data before even leaving the boathouse with LiNK for iOS and Android.
The SpeedCoach GPS 2 is expandable and upgradeable. It features LiNK Bluetooth® Low Energy wireless connectivity. You can use LiNK to connect a compatible heart rate belt or the new Empower Oarlock, add the Training Pack and future features, install firmware updates, and connect your SpeedCoach to your phone or computer for data download.
