The StrokeCoach you love, updated with 21st Century technology! The StrokeCoach with Surge Rate provides every StrokeCoach function – stroke rate, stroke count and elapsed time – with absolutely NO wiring or seat magnet required! NK’s proprietary stroke algorithm, combined with a sensitive three-axis accelerometer, gives immediate accurate stroke rating in any boat – rowing shell, dragon boat, canoe or kayak – and in any position. The StrokeCoach Surge comes with a convenient "strap-on" mounting dock that makes short work of attaching it to your boat. Have a team boat? No problem! The StrokeCoach with Surge Rate will give you an accurate stroke rate in ANY seat in the boat! And, in response to your requests, we've added a backlight so no more flashlights during those early morning rows. Our test team of rowers and paddlers have told us loud and clear - this might be the most useful addition to the NK® line ever! The mounting strap is highly-adjustable and designed to quickly secure the unit to a footstretcher plate, cross-brace, wing rigger, bench seat or a coxswain’s or drummer’s leg. You can also use a traditional T or A bracket with a wireless mounting dock. If you find yourself in a wired boat, the mounting dock can still be used to hold the StrokeCoach with Surge Rate, so even if your club needs to pay a little more attention to their wiring, or the seats have gotten switched around (again), you’ll be in business. We're developing additional mounting options as well to ensure we give you a solution for every kind of boat you want to row or paddle.

Replace your battery (CR2032 Lithium watch battery), following the instructions on page 10. In rare cases, an electrostatic discharge (static electricity “shock”) may cause your display’s unit to go blank. In dry weather, a charge can build up while the unit is being carried in the storage pouch or a pocket and be discharged when the unit is touched or placed on the mounting bracket. If this happens, you can perform a complete reset of your unit as follows:

Open the battery door and remove the battery. Leave the battery out for at least 10 seconds while pressing and holding the button. Release the button and reinstall the battery. The unit should turn on and function normally when you push the button.

If this procedure does not solve the problem, and your unit is more than 2 years old, try replacing the battery.
