Viavito Rokai Rowing Machine FAQ

Does the seat move while you row?

The seat slides along the rail very smoothly. You can try and row without moving – sit with straight legs and row if you would like to, however, best results achieved when gliding along the rail and using your legs too.

Is the seat comfortable?

The seat is very comfortable. It is made from soft padded leather and is of decent size. Most users will find this seat very convenient when using the machine.

What is the best heart rate monitor to use with this machine?

I would personally recommend Willful Fitness Tracker. For its price of £29.99, you get an excellent fitness device that features a waterproof design, has got pedometer watch, step counter, SMS reading, heart rate and more. You can get this tracker here

Does it offer challenging resistance levels?

This rowing machine is perfect for beginners or intermediate users. If you are a more advanced user that is looking for a challenge, I would recommend you have a look at more advanced rowing machine such as Concept 2 Model D
