You can not directly control the stride length, but by changing the incline level the stride is adjusted slightly to that automatically depending on how much incline you have selected. Please note that you can’t link the iFit app to your smart device but only to the 7-inch display on the elliptical. The Bluetooth button is located on the bottom left corner of the display panel just above the fan and audio volume buttons if you wish to use the speakers on the NordicTrack. It is not very hard to assemble this elliptical trainer but comes with a few large parts that you need to attach together. As a very good quality product that is backed by the manufacturer it is offered with two years of parts warranty, 1 year of labor warranty and 10 years of frame warranty. The price is high but you’re getting what you pay for.
