What customers say about "Key Specs"
Nautilus E614 Elliptical Trainer
  • It has great flywheel, which provides a smooth workout experience.
  • The 20 levels of resistance are useful to choose your preferred level of intensity.
  • Very happy with how stable the machine is and with the 20-inch stride length. I am getting a work out from this machine when too lazy to drive to the gym
  • The flywheel has large dings and scrapes. The machine looks second hand, if judging by the flywheel.
  • I am experiencing vibration in the arms that connect to the flywheel during operation.
Schwinn 470 Elliptical Machine
  • Resistance and incline combine to give a workout comparable to commercial grade machines
  • The stride is very natural feeling, and this was my top priority when purchasing a new elliptical.
  • The stride length, resistance settings, and quiet nature of the machine are all positive aspects that I enjoy while using this elliptical.
  • Resistance levels work great and I think that level 25 it's really hard.
  • Using this machine for only two months I am experiencing a recurring clunk noise in the flywheel assembly.

What customers say about "Design"
Nautilus E614 Elliptical Trainer
  • Machine works great. At first I didn't like how the foot pedals are angled forward but I did get used to it after about a week of use.
  • The handles are closer in and at a nice height so I don't feel like I am overextending my arms.
  • The rubber wheels started to shred slightly after the first week and they still seem to be deteriorating.
  • After week there was start a thunking noise and wobble in one of the pedals.
  • I've had this for about two months and used regularly. One of the metal rings keeps popping off under pedal.
Schwinn 470 Elliptical Machine
  • Pedals are large that let you find the comfortable spot for your feet.
  • The footplates are very large and cushioned, so it's easy to get on and off and stay in place while using it.
  • The hands do not slip because the arm handles with an ergonomic grips.
  • The big disadvantage is that it cannot be folded, it takes up a lot of space at home.
  • Often the legs fly off the pedals, it is a pity that there are no straps to fix them.

What customers say about "Features"
Nautilus E614 Elliptical Trainer
  • The fan is perfect and has three levels of speed and will adjust to point towards your face or chest.
  • The speakers are a little quiet but I think that's enough.
  • Monitors don’t have any backlight. However, readability is great.
  • The computer does not track your speed and distance properly.
  • No telemetry-enabled heart rate, only contact, which means you have to hold on to handlebars in the middle to measure your heart rate.
Schwinn 470 Elliptical Machine
  • During workouts, I can watch my video because it has a tablet holder.
  • Variety of programs and tracking features, far in excess of what most people probably would use, but it's there.
  • Speaker system and fan, while unnecessary, are nice amenities. It's great to not need headphones, and the fan seems to help control sweat.
  • A tablet placed on the media tray will partially cover the wider monitor. However, you will still see all the main workout values on the smaller display.
  • Built-in speakers - poor quality and no volume control.
