To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Pros: The rowing is smooth, not crazy loud, seat is well padded. My husband assembled it in like 30 minutes.
Cons: I’ve had such a hard time buying this rower!!! I’d already been working from home for 9 months b/c of Covid and missed the gym I had at work. I had agonized for months over what rower to buy since I’m used to the expensive ones (Concept2), but didn’t want to spend thousands. I settled on this one and liked it until a couple minutes into exercising when the monitor’s RPMs dropped to zero, then everything else stopped tracking too - time, distance, row count, and calories (which I wouldn’t rely on anyway). Throughout my workout the monitor was glitchy, going back and forth between working a zero RPMs. I used it for 10 days, varying resistance to see if it would make a difference, but the issue continued. I finally found the manufacturers phone number (hint, it’s in the back of the manual), but they didn’t have the part in stock to replace. They told me to exchange thru Amazon, so I did. I got the replacement rower, husband assembled again, and....SAME ISSUE! I will say, Amazon customer service has been amazing, but I would not recommend this seller/manufacturer. I even bought the extra warranty, but got 2 rowers than didn’t work properly. Sure, I can set a timer on my phone if all I need to know is time, but I expected a better product than that.
