    Description
    This Interval™ 1000 split/rate watch is a multi-task electronic stopwatch whose memory data can be uploaded to a computer.
    SignificanceThe Interval™ 1000 split/rate watch demonstrates one of the major technological developments in modern rowing. All contemporary rowing shells are now equipped with sophisticated examples of this technology.
    HistoryFitness and training have always played an important part in rowing. The early training manuals concentrated on diet, posture and descriptions of the correct stroking method. Rowing technology remained fairly primitive until the 1950s when Professor Frank Cotton at the University of Sydney invented the ergometer enabling the coach to measure a rowers stroke technique and power. The development of computer technology in the 1980s and 1990s led to the sophisticated electronic gear that dominates rowing today.
