Weight in Ergdata changes by itself

Post by samcamps » April 30th, 2021, 10:21 am

Hi all,
Can someone explain why the weight in the Ergdata app changes and how it calculates the weight.
In my iphones Health app I can see Ergdata has write/read permission to the weight info.
Every time I connect to the rower it seems to log new weight data in the Health app:

Write an email to info@concept2.com and ask them to look at your Log book data. They'll need your logbook ID.

Are you using occasionally using ergzone? I’ve noticed that whenever an ergzone workout syncs back to ErgData on my iPhone, ergdata increases my weight. Ergzone and the online logbook still have the correct weight. Rather entertaining.

No I don't use any other app with the concept2.
I wanted to delete the app and re-install but I'm a bit afraid I will lose data then.

As long as you sync ErgData to your logbook before deleting it, nothing should be lost.

Is the weight in ErgData changing? It might be a rounding or unit conversion problem in iPhone health. I think I’ve seen that too. If so, I wouldn’t worry about it.

In my case, the weight always goes up in ErgData itself. Apparently, I’ve gained almost 10kg in only a few months :o
