How long will the Octane Q37 last?

The Octane Q37 might be the ugly stepsister to a True or Precor elliptical, but it will still last a long time. Though you do not have quality in every inch of this elliptical, Octane does know how to build a strong machine. The Q37 should withstand a moderate to a heavy user for a good number of years. Keep in mind, though, that maintaining your elliptical on a regular basis will add years to any machine.

Brief Overview

Octane is not the most well-known brand out there, but they do offer well-built machines with their own style of console. But the price tag of the Q37 might not be true to the actual quality of this elliptical. Subsequently, we have granted the Octane Q37 our Second Place 2021 Best Buy Award for the $2,000 to $2,999 range.

Overall Quality

Octane is kind of like the ugly stepsister of better-known brands like True and Precor. You still get the girl, but she isn't as pretty and she has some serious personality flaws. Similarly, when you compare the Octane Q37 to other ellipticals in this price range you can see that the build is not as strong. Additionally, the Q37XI console offers a lot of value but for an additional four hundred dollars which takes the Q37 into a higher price bracket where it does not stand out. Also, the Q37 only comes with a twenty-inch stride which is pretty tight considering it is a front-drive system. Other ellipticals even in lower price points off adjustable strides which Octane has limited their Q37 to a very specific user.

Despite the not-so-great features, we do still see value in the Q37. First off the build is strong when you look at just the Q37 as an elliptical. Also, Octane is a decent company and they offer a lifetime frame, five-year parts, and a one-year labor warranty. This kind of warranty is pretty standard for this price range but it is not a guarantee and we do recognize the added value. While we do not love how expensive the Q37XI console is, we are glad that you can choose between a few options so you do not have to spend the extra dough if you do not want to. And to top it off, Octane has developed a free fitness app that is compatible with your smart device. Sure, you don't have a fancy touchscreen but you also don't have the $500 a year bill.
