With unrivaled function and durability, the Concept2 Model E Indoor Rower is the machine of choice for people and athletes of all ages and ability. While similar to Concept2's Model D rower, the Model E sits up higher above the floor (20 inches, about the height of a typical dining room chair), which is optimal for those with balance or mobility issues. The Model E also comes with the PM4 Performance Monitor, and the monitor arm is fixed in place on the Model E (where it pivots on the Model D). The PM4 also includes a rechargeable battery pack and Garmin chest belt for heart rate monitoring. Whether you already row or are considering rowing to keep in shape, lose weight, cross-train for another sport, compete on the water or rehabilitate from injury or surgery, rowing is the complete exercise for you. Your whole body gets a complete workout from the efficient, rhythmic motion of rowing--arms, legs, chest, back, abs. Features and Specifications: 20 inch frame height, positioning you at a comfortable seat height. One-piece leg design offers stability and a solid feel. Nickel-plated chain for low-maintenance and a clean look. Fully enclosed chain housing keeps the chain cleaner. Powder-coated frame sealed with a clear top coat for extra durability. Light metallic gray finish with dark blue-gray accents. Long monitor arm, putting the PM4 within easy reach. Flywheel design minimizes noise, maximizes smooth feel of rowing on the water. Easy spiral damper controls feel of each pull. Ergonomic handle promotes natural arm and hand position. Aluminum rail capped with a stainless-steel track for smooth movement of the seat. Flexfoot footrests adjust for quick and easy sizing. Compact storage: Indoor rower separates easily into two parts for transport and storage. Easy assembly. Tools and illustrated instructions included. Caster wheels make it mobile. Maximum user weight: 500 pounds Dimensions: 7' 11" x 24" (L x W) Recommended workout space: 9 x 4 feet Weight: 65 pounds PM4 Monitor Features: Automatic Operation: Just start to row and the monitor turns on and gives feedback. You don't have to push a single button. Accurate tracking of performance data: distance, speed, pace, calories and watts Five display options: all data, force curve, rowing with a pace boat, bar chart and large print LogCard: Removable LogCard stores workout data and personal preferences. A LogCard is included with every PM4. USB Interface: transfer of data to PC or Mac Easy menu-driven operation: accesses a powerful list of features, including preset workouts, save favorite workouts, row against a previous performance or pace boat, play the FISH game, row with an animated rower to learn technique, review past workout results and choose from multiple language options. Heart Rate Monitoring: Built in wireless compatibility with Garmin heart rate technology (chest belt provided), offers improved transmission and eliminates interference from nearby rowers. Also compatible with Polar heart rate technology. Rechargeable Battery Pack: As you row you will actually be recharging your battery. The battery pack can also be recharged by connecting the PM4 to a PC through the USB port. Increased Memory Capacity: to allow for future expansion and features Supports Machine to Machine Racing: has the computing power to support both wireless and wired racing. No PCs needed Rowing provides superb total-body cardiovascular conditioning in a smooth impact-free exercise. A great investment, the commercial-grade Concept2 Model E Indoor Rower is supported with free online motivational tools such as the Concept2 online logbook, rowing challenges and training forum. Manufactured by the company that set the standard in rowing, the Model E is Concept2’s latest and most advanced indoor rower. With rugged features such as a one-piece leg design, glossy finish top coat, and fully-enclosed chain housing, the Model E is recommended for high-use facilities, individuals looking for the latest and greatest, and those who prefer a higher seated position. With a 20” seat height, the Model E sits 6” higher than the Concept2 Model D Indoor Rower, making it easier to get on and off. The self-calibrating Performance Monitor (PM4) displays workout data in five display options, a LogCard to record results, games and more! The PM4 (included) also features built-in wireless heart rate monitoring (chest belt provided), machine-to-machine wireless racing, a rechargeable battery pack, and increased memory capacity.

Although the storability, aesthetics, and water motion of the Water Rower was appealing to me, I ultimately decided on the Concept2 for the following reasons. First, the monitor. Many people say it's remarkably sophisticated. I have no basis for comparison but I do love quantifying my exercises and the Concept2 PM delivers. It offers stats in spades including heart monitoring and storage on a log card. I haven't purchased the necessary addons, but it also has an iPhone app integration. Cool. Second, the ecosystem. The Concept2 is really the defacto standard among rowers. I'm not a rower but if the pros use it, there's probably a good reason. Their log card and stats provide data for online communities so you can compare yourself to other rowers. Now you can kill yourself competing against others in the comfort of your own home! Finally, the build quality and engineering. The Concept2 is well built and is likely going to last long enough for years of abuse from my whole family (party of five here with four boys). All parts are steel and there's no skimping. The whole things is incredibly solid and, since it sits in a dedicated location, storing it is unnecessary for me (one of the advantages of the Water Rower).
I've had it now for about three months and use it two or three times a week. It's been great and I'm very happy with the purchase. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who wants to add some cardio variety to their home gym.
The machine is everything you would expect at that price. It is robust, sturdy and smooth - very high quality materials. When you begin to work out, be careful because you're gonna feel like you can do more - trust me, you'll pay for it the next couple of days. There are several standard, simple work outs already programmed into the PM4 and you can find 1 to start with that won't put you out of commission for the next 3 days after your first workout.'re
The PM4 performance monitor is a simple, but very effective device. Be sure to install the LogCard when you get started, this is necessary to add users (up to 5 per card). You can install the Row Pro software on your lap-top to monitor workouts, race against others and get a graphical representation of you rowing - but it is really not necessary. I tried it for a couple of days (free trial) and found it to be more trouble than it is worth. You can customize your workouts with the PM4 or just use the standard, pre-installed routines. Its very easy to use.
I recommend this machine - it is something everyone in the house can use.
I honestly can't comment on the height issue, but I find this model very easy to mount and dismount.
As for the extra space it takes up when stored (as opposed to the Model D), I don't bother to separate the two pieces when I'm done. I just lift the rear and stand it on its nose. It is about 3" shorter than my ceiling, and I tuck it into a nook in the exercise room that used to contain a recliner. The user manual says it may be unstable when stored this way, but it doesn't appear to be in danger of falling over to me. If I do believe it might fall over, I'll drive a screw-eye into a joist in the ceiling and hook a safety chain to the unit to keep it steady.
The workout provided by this machine is incredible! I downloaded a copy of RowPro and am using it as a trainer for its 20-day free trial. Very, very good software.
While noodling around the web site, I found that Concept2 provides a software development kit (SDK) for the PM3 and PM4 monitors. This allows users to develop their own applications to interface the rower to their PC. Even more fun for this geek!
