PainSled connects your Concept2 indoor rower to fitness tracking and workout experiences like the Concept2 Logbook, Zwift, Strava, TrainingPeaks, SportTracks, Fitbit, and Runkeeper. It also logs your rowing and heart rate data and lets you export it data formats like TCX or CSV.

PainSled supports Bluetooth data connections with the Concept2 PM 5 monitor, and USB data connections with the Concept2 PM 2-5 monitors using the Concept2 iConnectConcept2 cable.

* Cycling Power Emulation

PainSled can make your rower appear to be a cycling power meter so you can participate in group workout experiences like Zwift.

* The Stroke Scope

PainSled includes the “Stroke Scope”, a visualization of your last 5 rowing strokes along with drive-to-recovery ratio indicators. In landscape mode you can long-press the screen to make the Stroke Scope full-screen and use it to drill down on stroke-to-stroke consistency.

* Heart Rate Recovery Tracking

During idle rowing periods, PainSled Basic will continuously display your heart rate recovery drop in beats per minute over the first minute, or the most recent 60 seconds after the first minute of recovery.

Ratings and Reviews

Finally an app to export Concept2 Erg data!


Have been waiting for this capability for years! Good realtime display of row info plus it exports in a TCX file format that can be directly imported into Garmin Connect. Note it imports as a cycling activity to preserve stroke rate as cadence. You can change to a rowing activity but stroke won't be displayed in Garmin Connect (but is stored in case you switch back to cycling activity). Will upgrade to 5 stars and buy the sync upgrade when an automatic Garmin Connect sync is added.

Great app. Cleanup is a pain

Carey Jung

I really liked this app. It differs what it's supposed to. The only thing I find annoying is deleting workouts. You have to individually select each interval one by one, then hit delete, then confirm. Atypical workout might consist of 8-10 sets, so that's 30 or more steps just to delete your data after syncing. There should be an option to select all then delete.

Fantastic app for Concept2. Just a tiny note...


My activities import into garmin and Strava as Bicycle Rides, not Rowing. It's easy enough to manually change it, but I still hope it gets fixed.
