Automatically Create a New Session

This setting means that any new session that you create on Garmin, Polar or Suunto will automatically create a session in Rowers without you having to do anything.

If you have multiple clubs in Rowers you can choose which club you would like your data to be imported to.

Manually Assign the Import to a Session

This setting means you are able to choose from the feed/dashboard what you’d like to do with the import. You can choose to assign it to an exsiting session or create a new session from the import.

If you are a member of a club and you have a coach writing a training program for you this is the perfect setting to then assign the import to the right session.

Assign to Session

When assigning you import to a session you will see a button on the feed/dashboard “Assign to Session”.

  1. Press “Assign to exsiting Session”, this will open up a page where you can pick the session you’d like to import the import to.
  2. A list of your existing session will appear. Select the session you’d like to import the file to.
  3. Once the session is selected you can rate the session from 1 – 10 by pressing the stars. Pressing the Assign to Session will add your GPS and/or HR to the session.

    If a crew already exists you will be given a list of your crews for which you can import the GPS to. Importing GPS to crews will give you a Gold Medal Time (GMT) for the session.
