WaterRower Oxbridge Rowing Machine Review (Ash Wood, Cherry Wood, S4 Monitor)
Read the honest reviews of the WaterRower Oxbridge Rowing Machine in Ash Wood and Cherry Wood with S4 Monitor).
The WaterRower Oxbridge is an expensive rowing machine which is available for a price of $1500. The product is still worth every cent of the price due to its solid cherry wood (or ash wood) construction and handcrafted design. In addition to this, the machine also offers a comfortable rowing experience to the end user. All these features may justify the price tag.
The architecture and quality of the product
The rowing machine has its standalone resistance system and does not have movable parts that can cause damage during the long run. Therefore, the product is liable to last for several years. WaterRower Oxbridge Rowing Machine features a unique architecture due to its cherry wood construction. Some advantages of using cherry wood rowing machines are that it absorbs both vibration and sound. The WaterRower Oxbridge is very quiet during operation. This makes it an excellent choice for people who live in apartments and for those who prefer to play music or TV while doing workouts.
The features of flywheel
WaterRower Oxbridge Rowing Machine is entirely different while comparing it with products that are in the same genre. For instance, many water rowers that come to the market with a price tag of $1000 or above have an inbuilt digital or magnetic resistance system. However, in the case of Oxbridge, it comes to market with a water flywheel. The benefit of using a water flywheel is that it can easily enclose in a water tank to provide better resistance and smoothness.
The user can customize the resistance of the water rower. This means that the user can adjust the resistance level and do not need to get confused with knob and electronic controls. After regulating the resistance, the WaterRower will automatically mimic the rowing on the water. It is possible to adjust the resistance in different levels. It will ensure a very live rowing experience.
The computerized console
The computerized interface of the WaterRower monitor has a couple of programming windows, six information and six quick selection buttons. In addition to this, it also features three different modules of navigation buttons. This will help the user to record the pulse, workout intensity, stroke rate, duration and distance. Calorie burn counter is not integrated with this system.
In fact, it is possible to buy calorie, heart beat and pulse counter separately for this rowing machine. This will gradually enhance the accuracy of these readings and make it more accurate.
The comfort of using the WaterRower Oxbridge rowing machine
The rowing machine is comfortable in all sense. However, if the user considers the price tag of the product, it is certain that the product will offer the utmost comfort. Furthermore, all the products designed by the WaterRower company are very cozy to use.
The machine has a well padded seating system to ensure the comfort of the user. The intensity of the rowing session will not make any sore behind. It features a railing system that just glides to ensure the smoothness. The product has 4 vertical and 4 horizontal bearings that sit on the seat. The user can avoid wrist torque due to the elegant design of the machine.
How to store this machine?
Oxbridge Rower is undoubtedly a piece of art. However, if the user wants to keep it out of the sight, the only way left is to keep it upright. This will not take a lot of space and it is easy to find the wheels at the bottom of the machine.
Warranty and other specifications
The warranty period of the product will never justify the price. WaterRower Oxbridge Rowing Machine only offers a 1 year warranty on the components and a 3 year warranty on the frame which is less while comparing with the products of the same genre. Luckily, the user can extend the warranty to 3 years on the components and 5 years on the frame just by filling out a registration form.
The fact is that users love and praise this machine. It is very smooth, elegant and can store at any location. It is a well designed product and has the possibility to extend the warranty. One of the drawbacks of this product is that the computerized console does not include a calorie counter.
The complaint is about the exclusion of the calorie counter on the monitor. It is very difficult to see the monitor unless if the user is sitting in a well-lit room.
The machine has a maximum user capacity of 1000 pounds. This certifies the quality of architecture and design. Even though the price of this product is very high, the user can feel the difference in terms of comfort and ease. The only obvious drawback is the missing of the calorie counter.
5 Star rating!
