The new generation of Rate Meters from Active Tools have had new features added and have been cost engineered to reduce their prices.
Protective Silicone Rubber Cover - New Feature
The new ActiveTime includes a replaceable protective silicone rubber cover available in Blue, Pink and Orange.
Enhanced Accelerometer - New Feature
The new accelerometer senses lower variations in boat speed and rates are now displayed from 15-55 strokes per minute.
Self Timing – New Feature
With the new ActiveRate standing start pieces can be automatically timed as the unit senses when you start rowing and also when you wind down at the end of the piece.
Many people find that timing themselves over set distances gives them more useful speed information than trying to work with a fluctuating impeller or GPS derived speed readings. After all, races are won by the crew that takes the least time to cover a set distance, rather than the boat that goes fastest at any given point in the race.
Battery Life Indicator - New Feature
Low battery levels are now indicated on start up.
This means a very tidy installation can be achieved as no magnets or wires are required. Failures caused by wiring and connector problems are also eliminated.
Rate Meters can be attached by either fixing the standard mounting bracket to your boat or by using the suction cup bracket that attaches to any boat in seconds. All Rate Meters are supplied with both mounting brackets as standard.
When wanted, time can be displayed to manage your training outings or to make sure that you get to the start of races on time.
You can take the ratings of passing crews by clicking the button in time with their catches.

They are designed for use in 'racing' sliding seat rowing boats used in rowable water conditions. They can work in other situations but are likely to give less stable readings.

Skyline Crew has over 20 rate meters and they are used daily to ensure our athletes have great feedback for steady state work. They are a reliable way to get rate and I recommend them to coaches at every opportunity
