Product Description

Product Description

The WaterRower Oxbridge is handcrafted from solid Cherry wood, finished with danish oil. The WaterRower's patented WaterFlywheel has been specifically designed to emulate the dynamics of a boat moving though water and is unsurpassed in its simulation of the physical and physiological benefits of rowing.

Amazon.com

Rowing has long been recognized as the perfect aerobic pursuit, with naturally smooth and flowing movements that don't tax the joints but do boost the heart rate. Now you can take your rowing experience to the next level with the WaterRower Oxbridge rowing machine. Using the same principles that govern the dynamics of a boat in water, the WaterRower Oxbridge is outfitted with a "water flywheel" that consists of two paddles in an enclosed tank of water that provide smooth, quiet resistance, just like the paddles in an actual body of water. As a result, the machine has no moving parts that can wear out over time (even the recoil belt and pulleys don't require lubricating or maintaining). More significantly, the water tank and flywheel create a self-regulating resistance system that eliminates the need for a motor. As with real rowing, when you paddle faster, the increased drag provides more resistance. When you paddle slower, the resistance is less intense. The only limit to how fast you can row is your strength and your ability to overcome drag. And unlike conventional rowing machines, which tend to be jerky and jarring, the WaterRower Oxbridge is remarkably smooth and fluid.

From a fitness perspective, the WaterRower Oxbridge works 84 percent of your muscle mass, helping tone and strengthen your muscles while burning far more calories than most other aerobic machines. The exercise is also low impact, as it removes all the body weight from the ankles, knees, and hips, but still moves the limbs and joints through a full range of motion--from completely extended to completely contracted.

The WaterRower Oxbridge is outfitted with a Series 4 performance monitor that's designed to balance technical sophistication with user-friendliness. The monitor--which includes six information and programming windows, six QuickSelection buttons, and three navigation buttons--displays your workout intensity, stroke rate, heart rate, zone bar, duration, and distance. Plus, the monitor is compatible with an optional heart rate chest strap and receiver, which helps you optimize your workout and achieve your exercise objectives.

The WaterRower Oxbridge is handcrafted in solid cherry wood, which may vary in color from red/brown to deep red and will darken with exposure to light. For this reason, all WaterRower cherry wood components are kept in light-free rooms to protect from shadowing before being sold to the public. Initially, a new WaterRower Oxbridge will appear quite light in color, but will darken over time until it reaches a rich reddish hue. The cherry wood was chosen due to its marvelous engineering properties, especially its ability to absorb sound and vibration, which enhances the WaterRower's quiet performance and smooth operation. In addition, the wood is harvested from replenishable forests and is hand finished with three coats of Danish oil to give it a deep luster and warmth.

Other details include dual rails with four corner wheels that increase seat stability and reduce the amount of sweat buildup; a frame that flips upright for handy storage; and a weight capacity of up to 1,000 pounds. The WaterRower Oxbridge measures 84 by 21 by 22 inches (W x H x D), weighs 117 pounds (with water), and carries a one-year warranty on the frame and components (WaterRower will upgrade the warranty to five years on the frame and three years on the components with the completion of a registration form).

If you are really serious about an aerobic workout, look no further.
J. Grant
The best part of this rower is its smoothness and the wonderful, meditative sound of the water sloshing around as you row...just like you were out on the lake.

My overall view: Best piece of home workout equipment that I have ever owned.

I own 2 rowers in 2 different locations:
1st is a Concept 2 (model C - computer upgraded to PM3, handle and seat from D) which is just over 10 years old at my office/shop.
2nd is the Water Rower in Cherry which is just over 6 months old at my vacation house (used every weekend).

I write this review just having finished rowing on the Water Rower.

I purchased both machine new.
In the past, I had a "silicon filled piston super heavy duty rowing machine" which just died of many wear and fatigue problems before I purchased the Concept.

Either the Concept or Water Rower will do a really good job of lasting and keeping you in shape without killing your body.
I ran for many years but it was doing slow damage to my knees so I moved to rowing.

I row 3 days on, 1 off unless I get a major workout some other way.
I use these machines to keep in shape. Keep the lungs and heart moving etc.
I just get on the machine and row for 30 minutes either watching TV (at office) or listening to a pod caste and looking at the ocean.
I do not use any monitor graphics or other features.
I want 3 things - total time rowed - total meters rowed - current time for 500 M.
To me the rest of the displays are just not interesting.
I own and might use a heart rate monitor every 6 months are so...

The concept has > 10 million meters on it.
Replaced some parts over the years - the grips wears out fairly fast and the original was poorly shaped (for my hands) but the D model is good. The chain and shock cord has been replaced 2 times. Multiple seat roller sets. Complete seat.

The significant maintenance issue is you must wipe down the rollers and clean the rail with every use.

I don't know where to begin. I researched many types of exercise equipment and this one takes the cake. Check the manufacturer's well-built site for all the details on the product. I picked the cherry model for looks, but I'm sure any model would have suited my fitness needs. This rower is rock-solid, whisper quiet, comfortable and beautifully designed. When standing against a wall it looks like a piece of art. But it doesn't stay there long. My wife and I use it everyday. The resistance and motion is so smooth! I can't recommend this machine enough. You can even buy software to race other WaterRowers online. If you are really serious about an aerobic workout, look no further. The WaterRower is worth every penny and built to last.

After a lot of research on rowing machines (A lot!) purchasing a WaterRower was a no-brainer. It had a small footprint, elegant looks and most importantly, provided an excellent workout. Additionally, these machines are constantly well reviewed and compare favorably to the industry standard rower, the Concept2. So I ordered one here at Amazon from LifeStyle Sports. The WaterRower arrived quickly (three business days) and I assembled the rower following the supplied instructions. The unit is rock solid and built using very sturdy materials. I filled the water tank and gave it a few pulls and everything seemed in order.

The next morning, I did a simple ten minute workout and noticed that the rower was making a high pitched whining sound as I pulled the oar handle. I chalked it up as being normal to rowers and thought nothing of it. An hour later as I walked by the WaterRower, I noticed the water tank was covered in black dust/shavings. Upon closer inspection, you could see the handle strap, used to pull the paddle wheel, was supposed to be channeled through two pulley guides. There is one guide that is high and one that is low. To me, the pulleys looked like they had each been installed on the wrong side with the high pulley on the opposite side it was supposed to be - as was the case with the low guide pulley. The strap was not hitting the pulley, but was instead hitting the plastic cover on the pulley's post - burning the cover off with every pull and destroying it. I contacted LifeStyle Sports (10:00 PM on a Saturday) via email and heard back from them within an hour - wow! I sent LifeStyle Sports pictures, which they shared with WaterRower and they confirmed that the pulleys had been installed incorrectly. WaterRower FedExed (next day) an entire new head unit.

Anyone considering this rower should know first and foremost that it is absolutely gorgeous. Beyond that, what really sold me over the Concept 2 is that the layout of the machine is more conducive to rowing while watching tv, for example, nearly silent (great for apartment living), and what you noise you do hear is the gentle whoosh of water swirling.

I've never rowed in a scull, but I have to imagine the WaterRower sounds much more realistic than the sawing sound of the Concept 2.

Storage is a breeze with the low center of gravity and roller wheels - just lift it up and it takes up about the space of a dining chair.

The only potential downside is the computer. The Concept 2 has very accurate drag calculations, etc., that allow you to compare against anybody else's scores in the world. The S4 monitor on the WaterRower, by contrast, is not nearly as sophisticated. It doesn't even tell you total calories burned, which is a bummer. Despite some of the shortcomings of the monitor, however, I found that it was suitable for my intended purpose - exercise. I am not trying to become an Olympic rower, but merely lose some weight. For that purpose, I think the monitor is going to work out just fine.

(As an aside, the WaterRower company does offer a usb connector so you can hook up the rower to your computer and do some online things. It was complicated to figure out, at least on a Mac (looks more straightforward for Windows computers), but once I got it set up, it was kinda cool to race against a pace boat. Allegedly you can also race real people around the world, but the room was empty when I tried it out.)

In the end, this is a lot of money but it's a gorgeous piece of equipment that still manages to get your heart rate up.
