WaterRower Rowing Machines

WaterRower Rowing Machine

Water Resistance Perfection



The Original

The WaterRower was invented by John Duke in 1988. The American rower developed the rowing machine’s easy function and timeless design from the basic idea, that dry land training should simulate the given conditions on water as closely as possible.


Outstanding Design

Timeless appeal and prestige: the WaterRower rowing machine received the PlusX Award for its unique design and was also the only piece of sports equipment on display at the Design Museum of London.

WaterRower Connect

Rowing Software

Connect, free of charge, with WaterRower Connect and race against other WaterRower owners. Or, if you prefer, set up your own private workout.

Functional design right down to the last detail

WaterRower rowing machines have been manufactured with the utmost care and passion for detail for more than 25 years. Our machines stand for design in your home interior, at the workplace and in the fitness studio.

Soothing Flow of Water

The WaterRower’s resistance is generated in its unique water tank element. No manual adjustment is necessary to increase/decrease resistance, it precisely adjusts to the user’s movement and strength input.


The foot board offers the highest level of flexibility when in an optimal rowing position. The ergonomic foot pads and straps are both individually adjustable, guaranteeing maximum comfort.


The sleek S4 performance monitor can be updated with the ComModule to send data via bluetooth. The monitor displays all necessary data in one screen during your row.


The extremely durable, rubber feet provide protection and skid resistance for all types of flooring. The rails are also available in XL length, recommended for > 2 meters body length.


During your workout the seat glides silently on the rails, according to your rowing stroke. Eight ball bearing mounted rolls made of anti-abrasion polyurethane ensure perfect rolling on the rails. The seat is ergonomically cushioned, further providing comfort during use.


In an upright position, the WaterRower occupies no more space than a chair. Its center of gravity lies at the water tank which enables you to lift it effortlessly at the rail-end. In any position, the water remains safely in the tank.

The WaterRower water resistance

Quiet and extremely effective

waterrower water tank

The heart of the WaterRower is its water tank and ergonomic paddle design.

This enables maximum stroke through water, resulting in an even, smooth and jerk-free resistance. Water resistance is self-determining, meaning it precisely adjusts to the individual movement and strength input of the rower.

In real rowing, the skiff moves through the water based on muscular strength input. Scullers experience water’s resistance with the pull of their oars. The WaterRower truly simulates the outdoor rowing experience through its use of water as resistance.

Advantages of water resistance:

  • - pulling through water is gentle on your joints
  • - the amount of resistance is 100% self-determining
  • - training is calm and soothing, thanks to the pleasant, rhythmic swish of water
  • - water will show no signs of wear and tear- it’s indestructable
