What We Like About The Nautilus E614 Elliptical Machine

There are many things that we like about the Nautilus E614 Elliptical Machine so let’s get right to it.

One of the best parts about the Nautilus E614 Elliptical Machine is that it comes with 20 different levels of resistance. The type of resistance included in this machine is of the magnetic type. 20 levels of magnetic eddy current resistance provide you with the exact challenge you need every day. We like that the Nautilus E614 Elliptical Machine uses a high speed and high inertia flywheel because it means that this particular elliptical stays smooth and quiet for the duration of your exercise routine. The resistance can be easily adjusted with the LCD display, which is always good. To increase your challenge even more, you can also choose from 6 different incline levels.

Something else we like about the Nautilus E614 Elliptical Machine is the advanced dual track LCD display. This display can show you up to 13 different fitness metrics such as stride, speed, time, calories burned and much more. The display is large, easy to read, and simple to navigate. The Nautilus E614 Elliptical Machine comes with a quick start program, 2 user profiles, several profile controlled programs, several heart rate controlled programs, and much more. The display also comes with a USB charging port that can allow you to hook up your phone, which is why this machine also has built-in 3-chamber acoustic speakers. The display even lets you engage in data export so you can create a detailed analysis of every day’s workouts.

Another thing that we like about the Nautilus E614 Elliptical Machine is that it is a very sturdy and well built machine. This particular elliptical trainer comes with a 300-pound weight capacity, which is pretty impressive. To keep you stable while exercising, the Nautilus E614 Elliptical Machine comes with 2 integrated levelers and 2 center frame supports, plus it also uses oversized crossbar tubing for even more stability. The materials used in the build of the Nautilus E614 Elliptical Machine are of a very good quality and meant to last for years to come.

The final thing that we like a lot about the Nautilus E614 Elliptical Machine is that it comes with many different versatility features. What we mean is that you can choose to use the static handlebars with heartbeat sensors, or for a more intense workout, you can use the motion handlebars. When it comes to comfort, the Nautilus E614 Elliptical Machine has you covered because it comes with oversized cushioned foot rests, well-padded grips, and even a 3-speed air fan to keep you cool while exercising.

What We Don’t Like About The Nautilus E614 Elliptical Machine

To be honest, there are not all that many things that we don’t like about the Nautilus E614 Elliptical Machine, but there are just a couple of small things to talk about.

We don’t like how the incline adjustment has to be done manually. This is not a huge deal, but since everything else can be adjusted through the console, it would only make sense for the incline to be the same.

We don’t like how the Nautilus E614 Elliptical Machine is so big and heavy. Coming in close to 170 pounds, even with the transportation wheels, moving it is not easy by any means. It is also pretty big so it is going to take up a fair amount of room in your home.

Alternatives To The Nautilus E614 Elliptical Machine

Just for a reference point, how do the some of the other mid range elliptical machines fare in comparison to the Nautilus E614 Elliptical Machine?

Fitness Reality E5500XL Magnetic Elliptical

This is a good alternative mid range elliptical trainer to consider. It is quite a bit less expensive, yet manages to still come with quite a bit of quality. It has many of the same features as the Nautilus E614 but without special add-ons such as speakers, a fan, a USB port, and data export. Also, the Fitness Reality E5500XL Magnetic Elliptical has a slightly lower weight capacity than the Nautilus. However, the Fitness Reality does have more resistance levels than the Nautilus, plus it is a little more space friendly as well.

Schwinn 430 Elliptical Machine

The Schwinn 430 Elliptical Machine is actually very similar to the Nautilus E614 in many respects, which is reflected by their nearly identical price. When it comes to things like the resistance, the incline, the LCD display, data export, and extras like fans and speakers, these two models are virtually identical. Both machines are even of a similar size and weight.

Final Thoughts On The Nautilus E614 Elliptical Machine

The Nautilus E614 is a great mid range elliptical machine option to consider. It is in all reality most likely the best mid range option on the market today. With various levels of resistance, incline, various comfort factors, speakers, a USB port, a durable and stable build, and much more, the Nautilus E614 Elliptical Machine is money well invested.
