Are you familiar with the movie ‘’Coming to America”? If you are then you would know the phrase Eddy Murphy used when he was talking to a woman he liked and he says, ‘’when you think of garbage think of Akeem’’. But in this case, when you think of innovative cardio sports equipment think of Nautilus E614 Elliptical Machine because it was designed to suit your need and to help you achieve your fitness goal with ease and comfort. The word innovation is next to it name and has got most of the cutting-edge design and technology one can get.
One of these great features that is worth mentioning is the DualTrackTM LCD monitor that has a large and secondary display. The idea behind this unique monitor is to enable the user to view the workout data even when a tablet or a book is propped up on the console. It is also a sturdy and durable machine which supports 300 pounds or 136 kg maximum user capacity. There are useful features and accessories such as the fan that would keep the user cool at all times and water bottle holder that would enable the user to have water handy for hydration. Let’s have the features and pros listed one at a time below.
- It has a DualTrack two window system that allows the user to keep an Ipad, tablet or a book on it and still be able to view and track workout data.
- It has NautilusConnect goal tracking and data export that updates the user on his progress and specifically focuses on a fitness goal
- It has got this high speed, high inertia drive system with a perimeter weighted flywheel for a quiet, steady and smooth workout.
- For natural and effective movement, it has this 20’’ precision path stride that would ensure just that.

- It 2 user profiles allows you to store personal information and workout data.
- Other workout data you get to view on the LCD console are the time, distance, level, and revolutions per minute, calories and heart rate.

- Unfortunately, the Nautilus E614 Elliptical Machine is not telemetry enabled only the contact/grip heart rate is available.
- The 6 levels of incline are being adjusted manually, which means you have to stop at some point in your workout in other to change the incline. Nevertheless, these are not really a problem per se because the price of the equipment is right. As a matter of fact, there are other elliptical machines in its price range that do not have most of the features the Nautilus E614 Elliptical has.

Shipping and Assembly
Shipping cost is not usually a problem if you are buying from Amazon because they provide free shipping. However, I can’t say the same for anywhere else but Amazon is recommendable.
As for assembly, it is easy to assemble because it comes with an instruction manual that would walk you through the process of assembly and also it is accompanied with the tools required for the assembly. Just make sure you have few tools of your own just in case and also have the delivery guy deliver the equipment in the exact place you want to use it for assembly.
There is so much to be desired about the Nautilus E614 Elliptical Trainer. Its various features are geared towards achieving physical fitness goals with ease, ranging from it workout programs to the In-console speakers and MP3 port. It is also worth mentioning that its warranty is good as well. I believe that Nautilus E614 Elliptical Trainer is a good buy that would be perfect for a home gym and the family.
