'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.


Hydrow deal: Save on the smart indoor rower with this coupon code

If you've lost your routine and are struggling to find your new quarantine normal, it's never too late to reset.
Written by Elyse Betters Picaro, Managing Editor

Those of you interested in indoor rowing have definitely heard of the Hydrow by now.

It's a high-end smart rower with a 22-inch full HD screen. It's like the Peloton of rowers. You can use it to improve your core and your upper body strength while engaging in low-impact, high-intensity cardio. It's truly a fantastic calorie-burning exercise. We even recommended it in our roundup of the best at-home fitness equipment for remote workers

The problem is it costs $2,199. But, for a limited time, you can save $100 on the Hydrow. 

Hydrow is offering ZDNet readers a discount on its indoor rower if you apply the coupon code ZDNET100 at checkout. This is a solid machine made even better at a cheaper price. Consider it if you want to stay in shape during the pandemic but are looking for more guidance.

You'll also notice at checkout that Hydrow offers its customers financing through Klarna, where you can get the Hydrow for as little as $62 per month if you qualify.

The rower itself features electromagnetic resistance, a cushioned seat, and adjustable pedals. It also works with a $38-per-month subscription that offers on-demand and live workouts, including classes with "Olympians and world-class rowers."

Sure, the Hydrow is still a bit of an investment. But, rather than rotating between couches and chairs all day long during the quarantine, you could break up the hours at home by squeezing in some much-needed time to sweat on a rower. 

Imagine being able to live, work, exercise, and stay sane and healthy all from the same house.
