It is great to have 100 levels of resistance and challenge for your different needs.
Your fitness level is assessed by the JRNY and personalised custom workouts are created for you. It also offers you coaching and feedback on your built-in touch display that gets you through your sessions. You can use it with the other major cycling apps like Swift or Peloton on your smartphone or tablet and with a JRNY account and the bike metrics are transmitted to the compatible applications via Bluetooth. You need WiFi connection for the 7-inch HD touch display and you can cycle on more than 50 global routes that will adjust automatically to your speed.
You can watch Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime and Disney+ on the 7-inch touchscreen of this bike if you have the subscriptions for the streaming service. And you’ll need the JRNY membership for accessing the streaming services’ apps on the console. The LCD-backlit display shows the calories burned, distance traveled, time exercised, current speed, RPM- cadence, and heart rate via the handle sensors. You can put your smartphone or tablet on the centre console and you can also charge your device through the USB charger as you work out. It has the decent Bluetooth speakers and Bluetooth heart rate armband, two water bottle holders and the 2 x 3lb. dumbbells with the easy access cradles.
If you have an Apple phone or tablet you can connect to the Peloton app directly via Bluetooth and measure the indicators like heart rate or rpm- cadence. You don’t have to subscribe to any service if you don’t want and the LCD display will show you the workout indicators and you can just watch workout videos on YouTube. The in-home assembly service is available for a fee (89 dollars at the moment) but the assembly is quite easy. You may want to pay for the fee to get it delivered to the room you want in your house. You’ll get a warranty of 1 year for electronics and labor and 3 years for the parts and frame as well as a good customer support that you can contact via your order page on Amazon. March 2, 2021 is the date these bikes were first available at Amazon.com and the average user rating is 4.3 out of 5 stars by 67 customers for all three models.
