Yowza Jupiter Plus Elliptical Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
The adjustable stride that the Jupiter Plus offers makes it more appealing for multiple users.
At an MSRP of $200.00 more the Jupiter Plus ships equipped with adjustable stride. The stride can be adjusted on the fly with a push of a button. Different users can make the stride long or short and all points in between to fit their height and individual movement characteristics. Yowza also claims to have a power incline from 0 to 35% as a separate feature apart from the adjustable stride. This is false. They are the same feature. The tactic can best be described as "Specification License" it creates confusion and ultimately leads the consumer to believe they are getting more features than the really are. In this case the power incline system that adjust from 0 to 35% changes the shape of the ellipse motion of the elliptical by shortening and lengthen the shape of the ellipse which arguably makes the stride feel longer and shorter. So what really is going on is that Yowza has credited themselves with two features when in reality it is two functions of the same feature. That being said the feature is well worth shelling out the extra $200.00.
