I think it looks cool rowing is really good because it's a low impact, this seat moves really smoothly


Getting Healthy At 40+ || Merach Rowing Machine Review || Mom & Kids Edition || A Gift That Gives

Sam Visnic

A rower can present benefits in that situation for example with knees because it would be low impact and it would be predominantly working the upper body

Q1S Smart Home Rowing Machine FAQ
950/R06/Q5/Q1S, Which is the best home rowing machine?

All 4 rowing machines feature automatic resistance adjustment, but each model caters to different needs:

Q1S is ideal for those seeking a quiet and smooth rowing experience, with resistance suitable for users below the middle class.

950 and Q5 are designed for professional use and cater to rowers of all levels. 950 boasts a pure wood construction, while Q5 is made from high-grade steel, catering to different style preferences.

R06 offers a cost-effective option for those on a budget.

Ultimately, the choice of model depends on individual preferences. Click on 950/R06/Q5/Q1S to learn more and find the best fit for your needs.

What is the difference between Q1S Electromagnetic and Q1S Manual?

Difference between Q1S Electromagnetic and Q1S Manual:

The main difference is in the way resistance is adjusted. Q1S Manual resistance is adjusted mechanically and features an electronic screen powered by a battery. It cannot automatically adjust resistance.

On the other hand, Q1S Electromagnetic uses an AC plug for power and has an electronic button for resistance adjustment. The electronic button also displays data. This model can automatically adjust resistance during MERACH APP courses, ensuring uninterrupted breathing and exercise rhythm.

When choosing the best magnetic rowing machine, it depends on your usage habits.

How do I troubleshoot Bluetooth connection issues?

1. Check if the rower is powered on.
2. Make sure the Bluetooth indicator light is on by waking up the rowing machine.
3. Ensure that the Bluetooth function on your phone is turned on.
4. Make sure no one is using the rower during the Bluetooth connection.

If the above issues are resolved but you still can't connect, try unpairing the Bluetooth on your phone and reconnecting.

My first rower , good for beginner

I think the rower is a good beginner machine. The app is glitchy on certain things , it will sometimes freeze up . The levels were automatically change if you are doing a class or the game but it once it changes it takes 30 seconds to a minute to change to a different level. I noticed today after only using it for less then 2 weeks that my seat was clunking , I could hear it and feel it under my glutes. Then it would go away and would be smooth but would change again. Not sure what it is or why . Other than that I am new to rowing and love it . If you take the classes , it is sometimes hard to understand what is being said , so thankfully the machine will change your resistance automatically.

So far so good!

I was a bit skeptical about the quality of this machine especially given the price point. But after reading other’s reviews I decided to give it a shot. I pray I won’t have to return it for any reason because it is not only very heavy, but it is never going back in the box it came in ever. So……onward! It didn’t take me long at all to put this together. It actually took longer to free all the parts from the box, tape, styrofoam and plastic. Overall pretty simple. Maybe took a total of 20 minutes. The metal seems to be made well and the parts are decent in quality. The seat is cushioned enough, and the slides are smooth. I read a review where one complaint said that the rollers became flat on one side and made the rolling of the seat bumpy. I believe that can only be rollers that where defective from the beginning. The resistance levels are okay. I just tested a few from low to high to get a feeling of what I had to work with. This is a mid grade machine, but I would say on the higher end of mid grade. It is no gym quality air rower, but still a nicer machine for home. In a nutshell, I think this will work out well for me as I ease back into cardio on a regular basis. As of now (keeping in mind I have not actually worked out with this yet) I would consider this a great buy and a quality machine especially for the money. Got to take the naysayers with a grain of salt. I say go for it!

**Note** The Q1 requires 2AAA batteries which go behind the LEF screen. The Q1S does NOT require batteries despite the manual and the information contained here from the seller indicating that it does in order to connect to Bluetooth. For the Q1S you only need to install the Kinomap app and the Bluetooth will connect once you have submitted your information in the Kinomap app and created your account. I spent 5 hours of my life trying to figure out where batteries go because the information sent to customers is incorrect.

new rower

I'm new to rowing and seeing how there are what seems to be a tremendous amount of choices i was happy to find Merach. I'm rather fit, exercise and cycle regularly but wanted to add to the routine. Very happy with my purchase. The rower is very sturdy, easy to use and with the different strength settings, easy to get in a good workout.

The app is not the greatest and the app likes to disconnect from the machine. However you can "unbind" the machine and reconnect rather easy. To me for the price, I'll deal with the app and use other mediums, apps, youtube etc.

All in all very happy with my purcahse

Sub par rower

. I bought the MERACH Q1S Smart Rower. I have had the rower and used it for around two weeks . I have had issues with the app , the first day I could not connect . I watched you tube and I did a rowing video on there instead. The second day I did connect, I did however have some glitches with some of the content . I still am unable to use the second game content, it just stops and has the circle like it’s thinking . The instructors are not always easy to understand , I do like that it will switch the resistance. My resistance is also quirky , if I change it or if the app changes it , it takes up to a minute to change at times . But it won’t always change, yesterday I was doing manual changes and I should have been at a 12 and I had a resistance of a 2. Today as well , I should have been at 8 but felt like I stayed at a 4. There are times it works fine , it just isn’t consistent. Two days ago , I started to feel and hear a clunk under my seat. It would go for a bit and then it would stop , then would start up again and stop. I felt the clunk today as well, but wasn’t being as loud as it was two days ago.

I also just finished another workout with Gabby the Hit class number 4 this morning and it only changed resistance once when it should have changed multiple times, the numbers changed but the resistance still read a 24 SPM k matter if I was at a 1 or a 16. There is something wrong with it , which doesn’t make it any fun anymore , because I know my resistance is not going to change . Sad though , because I love rowing and it doesn’t hurt my ankle. And it worked at first just stopped working this past week. . I guess you get what you pay for but this is more expensive than some cheaper ones I had looked at.
