The ProRower H2O RX-750 is a metal water-resistance rower designed to give you an exceptionally-smooth rowing experience that works out your whole body.

The electronic performance monitor includes a built-in heart monitor, so you can track all your fitness stats. Continue reading this review to learn more about these highlights and some of the rower’s flaws.
Hydro-Power Drive system
Rowing with the ProRower H2O RX-750 rowing machine is amazingly smooth. The rower uses a tank of water where paddles are suspended. These paddles turn as you row, providing drag and resistance for a challenging workout. The innovative hydro-power drive system (unique to this rower) results in natural rowing that mimics real-life rowing on a boat. If you’re using a machine to train for rowing on water, this is the ideal rower for you.
Electronic performance monitor
To keep tabs on your fitness progress and goals, the H2O RX-750 is equipped with a performance monitor that displays distance, calories burned, strokes, heart rate, and workout time. Using the monitor as you work out is easy with the large screen and adjustable viewing angle.
Having a metal frame instead of wood helps keep this rower is affordable. The tank made from polycarbonate to prevent leaks, while the handle, seat, and monorail are solid metal. The rower as a whole is built for longevity, so you can expect to use it for years to come.
Built-in heart monitor
One of the rower’s strengths is the built-in heart rate receiver. Not all rowers come with this, so you have to buy your own. The rower also comes with a chest strap you can choose to use.
Since you’re in a seated position while you row, a comfortable seat is very important. The seat on the RX-750 is padded, as are the handles. e so you can have a completely comfortable experience.
Adding water changes rowing
One of the cool features on the rower is that you can change your rowing experience by increasing or decreasing the level of water in the tank. Adding water will help boost the resistance, so you effectively raise the tension of the rower and further challenge yourself.
Weight capacity less compared to other rowers
The main downside to the ProRower is that it has a much lighter weight capacity compared to other (wooden) rowers. It only holds about 350 pounds. The silver lining is that a 350-pound capacity is fine for most people.
Overall, the ProRower H2O RX-750 home series rowing machine is a strong, exceptionally smooth rowing machine that’s more affordable than wooden water-resistance rowers. Features like the Hydro-Power drive system and comfortable seating make the rower easy and fun to use, and it’s easy to keep track of your progress with the electronic monitor.
