What customers say about "Key Specs"
Nautilus E616 Elliptical Trainer
  • The resistance can feel a little bit high on the lowest settings but once I got used to how the machine felt I got into it. I was sweating when I was done, that's for sure! Glad I purchased it.
  • It is a short range in the stribe but also an upright stride. I was very pleased with this combination in my workout and this thing will work you out well.
  • Thanks to 25 levels of resistance, I can increase my load every week. Resistance is switched by a light touch of a button.
  • I've had the elliptical for four days and it is already making an annoying clicking noise.
  • At high intensity it is not very stable and it is very hard to pedal in reverse due to the lack of stability.
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 E616 Elliptical Trainer
  • The suspension and cushioning system make the workout be easier on the knees, ankles and legs.
  • Hands do not slip on handles because they have a special coating.
  • I do not bother anyone when I workout because elliptical has smooth and quiet drive.
  • I also had the right foot pedal come off the machine after being on it for 1.5 minutes.
  • After a week of use, one of the pedals began to fall off.
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 E616 Elliptical Trainer
  • I like that I can use the phone during workouts and immediately charge it through usb.
  • You can sync with free App and run through 19 locations with 27 routes alongside people from all over the world in real time.
  • Tracking through Bluetooth transfers all data correctly.
  • The Heart Rate can now be tracked with a wireless chest strap. The belt shows more accurate data.
  • A tablet situated on the media tray will cover the top display of the console.
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.
