Strokes Per Minute App

Strokes Per Minute is a simple intuitive app to calculate the stroke rate. It was designed by a rowing coach who consistently forgot their rating watch. Its minimal design provides an easy to use tool for rowing coaches, coxes and enthusiasts.

Simply tap to start and tap to end. On iPhone & iPad the app provides both the stroke rate and the time taken per stroke which can be a useful tool when communicating with novice rowers. While on Apple Watch only the stroke rate is shown, ideal for coxes.
