Packed with Features, Easy to Operate
We pack a lot of functionality into the PM5, but we also make sure it’s easy to use. The monitor will power up and provide data as soon as the flywheel starts spinning, so you don’t need to push a single button to get started.
If you prefer to dive in to all the functions the monitor provides, the easy menu-driven operation lets you quickly access preset workouts, save favorite workouts, review past workout results and much more. For a full run-down, visit How to Use Your PM5.
Data and Displays
The PM5 provides distance, speed, pace, Calories, and watts for each workout you do, and you can choose between five display options: all data, force curve, bar chart, large print and having a paceboat/pacer.
The PM5’s backlit display provides increased visibility. It illuminates automatically when the monitor powers up and stays illuminated during your workout.
The PM5 supports both ANT+ and Bluetooth, allowing you to connect to a wide range of wireless devices. We have our own app, ErgData, which runs on both iOS and Android, and there are a number of other app options out there as well. The PM5 also supports wireless heart rate monitoring if you have a chest belt that supports one of these transmission technologies.
The PM5 takes two D cell batteries. During your workout, the monitor draws power from the spinning flywheel to extend battery life.
On those days when you need a little extra motivation or just want a break from your regular routine, check out the PM5 Games. They’re also great teaching tools for both kids and adults! Choose from the Fish Game, Darts, Target Training and Biathlon.
The Performance Monitor is ideal for racing and competition. With a PM5, you can compete against your teammates or workout rivals, whether they're in the same room or on another continent. The PM5 supports wired machine to machine racing.
