Looking for an affordable NordicTrack elliptical trainer with a web browser? You might want to consider the new 11.9 cross trainer model.
This was recently introduced and replaces the old NordicTrack E11.7 cross trainer. But unlike the 11.7 model, which had a two-tone console, the E11.9 gives you a full-color console with a built-in web browser.
In fact, this is currently the most affordable NordicTrack web browser elliptical trainer on the market. Is it right for you? Here’s an overview of the pros and cons to help you decide:
Pro #1 High 20 degree power ramp
Ramps or inclines change the slope of the elliptical path. This makes it a great way to challenge and train different muscle groups.
On this elliptical trainer, you get a power ramp from 3 to 20 degrees, which you change from your machine’s console.
Pro #2 iFit LIVE
The NordicTrack E11.9 is equipped with integrated iFit LIVE. This means you don’t need to purchase an additional module to add iFit to your console.
With iFit you connect your elliptical trainer to the Internet. From there you can download new workouts, track your training stats online, and even record new trails for running with Googlemaps.
Being a full color console makes the World Trails feature really ultra cool. As you run, you’ll see real landmarks flash past you on screen!
Pro #3 heavy flywheel
This elliptical trainer comes with a 20 pound flywheel. While it’s not the heaviest flywheel NordicTrack makes, it’s still pretty decent.
Also, it helps anchor the trainer for a more stable workout.
Pro #4 Free Wireless Heart Rate Monitor
You get a free wireless heart rate monitor with this trainer. Many people prefer the wireless monitor as it is more convenient than constantly grabbing the hand sensors.
Pro No. 5 adjustable pedals
The pedals on this elliptical trainer are adjustable. You can customize your workout by choosing from 3 different toe-heel angles to find the right feel for you.
So those are the pros – are there any cons?
Con #1 iFit LIVE subscription required
You need to purchase the iFit LIVE annual subscription, which costs about $99 per year. Finally, while you don’t need iFit to use this elliptical trainer (or the web browser), you do need the subscription if you want to take full advantage of iFit.
Cons #2: No control over the moving armbars
While you can adjust incline and resistance from the console, there aren’t any controls on the moving handlebars – which you often get on NordicTrack’s higher-end models.
If you are looking for the most affordable NordicTrack elliptical trainer with a web browser, the E11.9 model is for you.
While you get plenty of entertainment options, you also get some great basics like a heavy flywheel, a long 20-inch stride, and an incline for better cross-training. So it’s definitely worth getting on your shortlist of the best elliptical trainer deals on the market!
