How long will the Nautilus E616 last?

The Nautilus E616 Elliptical has a stout 173 lb. weight when fully assembled and holds up to a maximum capacity of 300 lbs. It will last for many years for a consumer willing to maintain a proper care schedule and it best suited for light to moderate use. It has a nice 10-year warranty on the frame, 3 years on parts and electronics, and 1 year on labor. An extended coverage plan covering either an additional 3 or 5 years can be added at the time of purchase for those looking to enjoy daily workout sessions. Keep in mind simply unplugging after use will increase the life of this machine.

Brief Overview

The Nautilus E616 Elliptical is a former Best Buy Winner and packs a big punch in a standard frame. It contains many quality components along with connecting to the Explore the World™ App through Bluetooth capabilities. The E616 is budget-friendly and would be a great addition to any home workout space.

Overall Quality

The Nautilus E616 Elliptical has a high inertia front drive system that works with 25 levels of resistance and a 10-degree incline to raise intensity levels to the utmost during workout sessions. The E616 contains a 20” stride meaning users of most heights will benefit and exercise comfortably on this machine in both a backward and forward motion. Pulse grips in the stationary handlebars capture heartrate information for display on the 2 LCD screens that convey multiple points of performance stats with a pleasing blue back lit display. A total of 29 built in workouts includes fitness tests and customizable exercise regimes along with targeted heartrate programs for building cardio health to keep consumers focused on long-term health goals. In addition, the console contains speakers, a media shelf, and an integrated fan for cooling sweaty brows.
