Smart rowing machines typically come with a high price tag. The Echelon Row Connected Rower costs much less than most high-tech rowing machines available at just under $1,000. But, you still get all of the features you’d expect in a smart rowing machine, including Bluetooth connectivity, digital resistance, on-location virtual rowing workouts, instructor-led classes, and app compatibility.
The reason for the Echelon Row’s low price is that you’ll need your own device to stream workouts. This rower lacks the big HD touchscreen found on other smart rowers, but it has a sturdy device holder to support tablets of many sizes.
