Metrics on ErgZone


The ErgZone app calculates and presents a comprehensive array of over 30 metrics to aid athletes in achieving their goals.

This article outlines and explains the metrics that are available within ErgZone. For detailed information about each metric, please refer to its respective article.

Time

As the name suggests, Time displays the duration of the workout and each interval or split.

The metric Time does not include rest periods. To view that total time, including rest, use Elapsed Time.

Elapsed

Elapsed Time functions much like regular Time but accounts for any rest periods, if present.

Total Time

Display the Time + Rest time.

Available on workouts with rest.


Projected TimeπŸ”’

Available during distance-based workouts, it displays the estimated time remaining until the conclusion of the interval and the entire workout (overall duration). This calculation is done based on the current pace.

Rest

As the name suggests, the Rest displays information pertinent to the rest periods. It is displayed in mm: ss format.

Meters

Displays the distance (in meters) overall and per interval.


Projected DistanceπŸ”’

Available during time-based workouts, it displays the estimated distance until the conclusion of the interval and the entire workout (overall duration). This calculation is done based on the current pace.


Watts

Display wattage. The column watts will display the differentials if a suggested wattage is set for an interval. It includes the suggested watts and the difference between the suggested and actual. 


Cal/hr

Calories per hour.

ErgZone doesn't calculate calories. Instead, it displays the calculation sent to the app by the PM5. PM5 uses a formula based on a 175-pound/79.5kg individual.

/500m or /1000m

Pace for 500m for RowErg and SkiErg. Pace for 1000m for bikeErg. 

The following list displays all available metrics ordered by which column will be shown in the above table. 


Average Pace

Available on Grid Mode only.


Heart Rate



Count

Strokes Count displays the strokes (or revolutions) count for the interval or the workout.


Drag Factor

Displays the drag factor. To adjust it, change the damper on the erg.


SPI

Stroke Power Index.


SPI% πŸ”’

Stroke Power Index Percentage.

It takes into account the SPI number configured in the Benchmarks..


Max ⚑ πŸ”’

Maximum Watts.

It displays the maximum power, in watts, created during the interval or splits and the workout.


Max% πŸ”’

Maximum power percentage.

It takes into account the maximum power number configured in the Benchmarks.


FTP% πŸ”’

Functional threshold power percentage.

It takes into account the maximum FTP configured in the Benchmarks.


Drive πŸ”’

Drive length, displayed in meters. For instance, 1.24 translates to 1 meter and 24 centimeters.


Force πŸ”’

Average force, displayed in pounds.


Peak πŸ”’

Peak Force.

It represents the top of the force curve, displayed in pounds.


Average Force πŸ”’

Available on Grid Mode only.


DPS πŸ”’

Distance per Stroke, or "stroke distance" shown as DPS on ErgZone, is the distance accumulated during the β€œdrive” and does not include the distance accumulated during β€œrecovery.”


Ratio πŸ”’

The work-to-recovery ratio is presented as a numerical value with decimals.

For instance, a ratio of 2.7 translates to 2.7:1, indicating that there is 2.7 times more work than recovery in the given stroke.


On Concept2, it is calculated by the PM5 as recovery time divided by drive time.


w/kg πŸ”’

Watts per kilo = wattage / kilos.


Curve πŸ”’

ErgZone displays the Force Curve stroke-by-stroke during a workout.

Upon completing each interval or split, it computes and presents an Average Force Curve specific to that section.

This is a feature not available on the PM monitor.


Delta 1 ( Ξ”1) πŸ”’

A Force Curve Delta 1 (βˆ†1) offers a comprehensive view by displaying two power curves:

  • The current stroke's force curve appears in teal.
  • The force curve from the previous strokes appears in orange.

The intersection of these teal and orange curves is highlighted in vibrant neon green.

This is a feature not available on the PM monitor.


Delta 5 ( Ξ”5) πŸ”’


A Force Curve Delta 5 (βˆ†5) offers a comprehensive view by displaying two power curves:

  • The current stroke's force curve appears in teal.
  • The force curve average from the previous 5 strokes appears in orange.

This is a feature not available on the PM monitor.


Force Efficiency πŸ”’

Force Effience = Average Force / Peak Force.

The closer to 100%, the better. This is a metric in beta.

This is a feature not available on the PM monitor.


Force Efficiency is available on Grid View and Live View.


πŸ”’ Metrics with the locker icon are available for ErgZone+ members.
