smartOar software and updates are available to everyone. The PC software allows you to view previously recorded strokes using either the tablet or the oars in self-record mode. Feel free to install the software on your PC and view the sample stroke data to see sweep oars, sculling oars, gate angle sensors, and the in-boat accelerometer in action. Use the analysis feature to see how smartOar can help you observe and track your, or your crews, performance.
Our PC software is designed for Windows XP/7/8/10. Vista is not supported. We recommend a reasonably modern laptop for good performance.
If you have any issues with the downloads, please feel free to contact us.
smartOar PC Software – View and analyze tablet and self-recorded oar data.
Version 3.5 October 2016 This is the one to use. Many new features including much reduced time from selecting a file to seeing the first strokes. HOWEVER – it requires a more powerful computer to run this software. SPECIFICALLY – a quad core CPU or a dual-core CPU that supports multi-threading such as the Intel Core I5 processor. Contact us if you have questions.
Version 2.1.0 January 2013: This original version has limited features but runs on most PCs. Important: if you are moving from the newer version back to this version, you must first uninstall the newer version.
NOTE: some anti-virus software may interfere with the installation of this software and may need to be disabled. Installing an upgrade will not delete stroke data you already have saved on your PC.
