For rowing enthusiasts on a budget, the MaxKare Water Rowing Machine boasts everything you need from a decent water rower. There’s a sturdy steel frame, large water tank, comfortable padded seat, upright storage, and even a water bottle holder! In action, it’s as natural as some of the higher-end models, allowing for smooth but intense workouts.

This is a water machine, which means the resistance mechanism consists of a fan pulling through the water in the tank. To set the resistance level, you need to add or remove water to find your optimum level. Then the harder you pull, the more the water resists you.

​The monitor on the MaxKare Water Rowing Machine is a pretty good one for the price. Workout data displayed includes 500 meter split times, strokes per minute, and calories you’ve burned – this is an estimate. The LCD screen is the right size and easy to read when rowing. It’s also heart monitor compatible so that you can see your pulse, but it doesn’t come with heart rate programs.

One feature I like is the human vs. boat program. You set the goal and then race against the computer! There’s nothing like a bit of competition to motivate yourself. The monitor sits on an adjustable arm and can tilt for ease of reading, depending on your height.

However, an HR chest strap is not (included) with the bike.  Also, built into the LCD are eight different exercise programs -Quick Start, Distance, Time, Calories, Game, Intervals (20/10. 10/20. 10/10).

The Stamina Wave 1450 Water Rower is a robust, well-built, no-nonsense machine. The elegant design is attractive with quality components, and at a price, it does represent excellent value for money in my view.

A flywheel spinning provides the resistance in the water tank. This also means the harder you row, the more resistance you’ll feel. You can raise your work rate further by adding more water (siphon included). The tank has ten levels marked on it; however, the warranty may be invalidated if you fill above level 10.

It’s an okay sort of monitor displaying all the usual data you’d expect to find. This model comes with a heart rate chest strap that displays your pulse on-screen – but note there are no heart rate programs. You can pre-set targets such as the distance you want to row, the time you want to row, or the stroke counts or calories you want to reach.

The rowing position is comfortable, thanks to a wide-padded seat. The seat slides smoothly and quietly up and down the solid steel beam thanks to the rollers beneath. Your feet would fit comfortably in the wide footrests – they also tilt like all footrests should for a smooth and comfortable ride.
