How to Connect or Disconnect from Concept2 PM5

This article describes connecting and disconnecting the ErgZone app to the PM5.

Connecting to PM5

ErgZone uses Bluetooth to connect to the Concept2 Performance Monitors 5 (PM5).

On the PM5:

  1. Click "Menu" to turn it on.
  2. Click "Connect."

On the ErgZone app:

  1. Open the ErgZone app.
  2. Find the workout you want to start
  3. Click "Connect."

  4. Click "Scan For Monitor."

  5. Choose the PM5 number that matches what's being displayed in the PM5(*)

    ErgZone will list all available PM5. The closest to the phone is displayed at the top of the list.

  6. Click "Connect."
  7. Wait for the message to start: "Row to Start."

Disconnecting from PM5

We recommend disconnecting the ErgZone app from the PM5 whenever an athlete uses an erg shared with others, such as at gyms, studios, or even if you share it with another family member. This will ensure their device does not stop other devices from connecting to that PM5.

There are a few ways to disconnect the ErgZone app from the PM5.

Force Close the App

When the ErgZone app is force closed, it automatically disconnects from the PM5.

Disconnect Button on ErgZone App

When a workout session is finished or stopped, a "Disconnect" button will be displayed at the bottom of the screen.

Does the ErgZone app connect to PM3 or PM4?


ErgZone app connects to PM via Bluetooth only, and PM3 and PM4 don't have Bluetooth. 

We suggest upgrading to a PM5, which offers more data and Bluetooth. The new Retrofit kit sold by Concept 2 comes with the PM5 and a phone/tablet holder.
