The high performing 470 elliptical comes fully digitized and packed with features and extras. With a 20” stride you can expect a good workout which is completed by the 10 degrees incline variation. You will also get a sealed acoustic chamber which reduces the sound impact and makes it a good option for home gyms. You will have the option to connect a chest strap to monitor your heart levels but you need to get it separately as it doesn`t come included in the pack.
In terms of performance you get an advanced machine. Once you plug it to a 110V-120V you get 25 levels of current resistance. This resistance technology is doubled by the high speed flywheel design. With the use of the LCD screen you can monitor the distance you cover with each session. You can also monitor the time spent on the machine and the burnt calories. This data can then be transferred via Bluetooth. The data can be input in the Schwinn Connect system but you can also add it to MyFitnessPal for accurate statistics.
The 470 is designed to include the latest gadgets compatibility. You can charge your mobile devices via the USB charger. The machine also comes with built-in tracking lights. One of the best design features is the 10 degrees adjustable and motorized ramp. It allows you to workout in an inclined position which can results in working the muscles in a more challenging approach. Together with the sealed acoustic chamber you get a design which works to increase comfort but also challenges you with your fitness goals.
The Schwinn 470 elliptical machine comes with 10 year warranty for the frame and a 2 year warranty for the mechanicals. This is not best in its class, but given the device and features such as the 3-speed fans and the telemetry heart rate monitoring you can see why the warranty is reduced. The elliptical also comes with 5 quick resistance and 5 quick incline keys which comes with the possibility of fast switching difficulty levels. If you`re looking for a top performer which comes well accessorized and well-connected you would benefit the most from the 470 as long as you don`t mind the reduced warranty policy.
