Schwinn 230 Recumbent Bike
Schwinn 230 Recumbent Bike
Effective, affordable, ergonomic, and loaded with user-friendly features!
The Schwinn 230 Recumbent Bike features a 5.5” backlit LCD console that guides you through 16 levels of computer-controlled resistance and 13 workout programs. Follow your progress via fitness metrics and Goal Track workout statistics. It’s all available thanks to the 230’s Bluetooth® connectivity. Bluetooth also provides access to an optional heart rate monitoring strap and syncs you with world-class virtual cycling apps like Zwift and Explore the World (separate subscriptions required).
With adjustable handlebars, pedal straps, and seat, the 230 allows you to create your ideal ergonomic exercise environment – complete with easy-to-reach handgrip contact heart-rate monitors. A media shelf for your smart devices, USB charging station, and water bottle holder are likewise conveniently close at hand. This bike is comfortable, too, with padded handlebars and a ventilated seat that provides lumbar support along with a refreshingly cool ride.

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
