Rowing electronics are useful for tracking rowing information, both in actual competitive rowing as well as in rowing machines and fitness equipment. Although the oars are used, the seat movement is what is tracked to keep count of the number of strokes and subsequently calculate the duration of each stroke. This is then translated to more useful information and also pushed to hand held devices. Reed Sensors are hermetically sealed and are safe to be used in water proof rowing equipment by installing one on the canoe, under each seat, and a magnet under the seat. For every stroke, the magnet moves back and forth over the reed sensor and this helps keep count of the number of strokes and also the time between each stroke.
