Yes you do. To maximize the value and flexibility of your rowing electronics investment, the EmPower Oarlock works with any SpeedCoach GPS 2. To support the EmPower Oarlock, the SpeedCoach must have Training Pack with firmware version 2.12 or higher. If you have an earlier version of firmware, you can update your firmware at no charge. If you do not have the Training Pack, you can purchase an upgrade. Installation of updates and upgrades requires a Bluetooth Low Energy USB Dongle. If you have any other NK performance monitor, you can trade it in under our Trade-In, Trade-Up Program.
