They don't build them like they used to.
I use it for lower body strength and endurance training. Pedaling comfortably is what people buy it for and it does that fairly well. It doesn't support multiple user profiles, it has no speakers to play music or support apps, the media shelf won't hold media, and the newly added Bluetooth connectivity supports only their Toolbox app and marginally the Explore The World app. Buyer beware.
I wouldn't buy this product again
I have the Schwinn 230 for 3 days. I don't see the built-in console speakers or MP3 connection that is advertised and the Bluetooth won't connect with anything except the Schwinn Toolbox app that only seems to update the console. It's supposed to keep profiles for 2 users but there is no profile set up. I let customer service know and hopefully they can make it right.
Good exercise equipment
Great Recumbent Bike. Highly recommend.
Ordered in May in the midst of the Pandemic. Was kept up to date on the status of delivery. Very efficient, professional communications
