The Frame and Construction 

YOSUDA 207-01 Water Rowing Machine

The YOSUDA 207-01 Water Rowing Machine is solidly built with an aluminum dual-track rail. Other components such as the retractable device holder, console casing, and pedals are made of quality plastic.  

Therefore, the unit supports 350 lbs./158.7 kg maximum user weight capacity.  

It is not foldable but could be stored vertically or uprightly thereby taking just as little space as possible. A storage space with measurements of 2’85’’ (87 cm) in length by 1’49’’ (45.46 cm) in width will be able to accommodate it.  

The fully assembled dimensions are 71.57’’ long by 17.9’’ wide by 34.3’’ high. In other words, a workout area with measurements of 6’ (181.78 cm) in length by 1’49’’ (45.46 cm) in width will be required. Also, an additional space of 2’ around it will be necessary for safety and ease of access.  

6’5’’ tall individuals can conveniently be accommodated.  

There are robust stabilizers with adjustable levelers incorporated at the rear and the front basis of the rower for improved stability. It is a lightweight machine that weighs 60 lbs./27 kg; thus, it can easily be moved around the room via the transport wheels at the front base.  

The Seat of the YOSUDA 207-01 Water Rowing Machine 

The rowing machine has a large, contoured, and padded seat designed to provide long-lasting comfort.  

It is attached to the double-track rail with big rollers for smooth, quiet, and stable motion. Users will be able to train longer without experiencing discomfort. However, if they ever need to improve the comfort of the seat, a cushion or gel seat cover could be used. 

The Handlebar 

The handlebar of the YOSUDA 207-01 Water Rowing Machine is curvy, just like the one on the YOSUDA H-187 Pro Magnetic Rower. 

It is, of course, cushioned with anti-slip/sweat soft rubber foam material that guarantees comfortable and firm grips.  

The anchor is a 1’’ reinforced nylon strap that is connected to the water tank recoil system.  

As a result, the rowing activity is smooth and quiet, except for the soothing sound that is generated by the water in the tank.  

No HR sensors or any other control buttons are integrated into it.  

The Footrests 

The footrests are large and textured with adjustable safety straps and heel guards. Therefore, they can accommodate different foot or shoe sizes securely and comfortably during aggressive rowing activity.  

They also pivot to adhere to the feet movement which largely reduces the stress that may be felt on the ankles.  

The Resistance System 

The resistance system of the YOSUDA 207-01 Water Rowing Machine

The YOSUDA 207-01 Water Rowing Machine has a dynamic water resistance system. It comprises a polycarbonate water tank with propellers inside that swirl the water around when the handlebar is pulled.  

Thus, it produces a soothing sound that mimics rowing in real open water as it also generates resistance. 

Usually, a water resistance system does not generate resistance levels that have static intensity, the opposite is the case. It produces resistance that is weak or strong (dynamic) depending on the user’s rowing ability.  

In other words, the resistance becomes intense or challenging when rowing faster and it decreases when the rowing tempo reduces.  

It is not possible to adjust the resistance level, it only produces resistance that is proportionate to the user’s rowing ability.  

Although, a tank filled with less water cannot produce the same level of resistance as one with more water.  So, you can choose to fill the tank as you see fit according to the levels of water indicated on it.  

Finally, the resistance system does not need any maintenance because the bearings and the screws for the water tank are stainless which prevents rust, while the tank is sealed with a rubber strip to prevent leakage.  

The Console 

The console of the YOSUDA 207-01 Water Rowing Machine

The console has Bluetooth and workout apps connectivity. It could be synced with FITLOG or Kinomap workout apps for more workout resources that could help you achieve your fitness goals while enjoying every bit of the journey.  

For instance, the Kinomap (subscription required) workout app provides an array of resources such as LIVE coaching, thousands of pre-recorded workout videos, the ability to track workout progress online, train on virtual trails with real-world maps, and more.  

The workout apps are available for both Android and iOS-based smartphones.  

If you don’t want to use the workout app, no problem, you will still be able to track your workout progress.  

The console features an LCD monitor that tracks Time, Distance, SPM (Stroke Per Minute), Stroke, Speed, and Calories. The first three metrics are displayed simultaneously while the rest can be displayed interchangeably by user’s preference.  

The display is readable and clear. However, if viewed in a poorly lit environment it might be a challenge because the monitor is not backlit. Although, the monitor can be tilted back or forward for the best viewing angle.  

There are easy-to-use navigation buttons that include an On/Off button, Mode button, Up and Down buttons, Reset button, Calories button, Strokes button, Speed button, and Km/Mi button.  

The Km/Mi button enables you to toggle the Speed and Distance measuring units between km/h and Kilometers to mph and miles and vice versa.  

The console is powered by batteries, and it turns on automatically when the rowing activity begins and also turns off when the activity ceases for a few minutes. You may also choose to use the On/Off button to turn it on or off.  


There is a retractable device holder that could hold a large tablet or smartphone. It is positioned above the console so that it doesn’t block the view when a device is placed on it.  


The YOSUDA 207-01 Water Rowing Machine is moved and stored in the corner of the room

The YOSUDA 207-01 Water Rowing Machine is not foldable, however, it could be stored uprightly without leakage because the tank is properly sealed with a rubber strip.  

Therefore, it can be stored in a corner of the room.  

It only weighs 60 lbs./27 kg, so you can easily maneuver it around the room via the front-mounted transport wheels.
