Review Summary

The Nautilus E614 is an entry level elliptical, that offers surprisingly good combination of features and quality usually offered by higher-end machines.

Although the fan is barely directional and the stride length can’t be adjusted, the E614 compensates it well with its motivational entertainment features, manual incline ramp, 20 resistance levels that come with sophisticated preset programs, and therefore it was selected as one of the top performers within “under $800” price category.

It shines among users reviews and it’s the only machine within its class that delivers motivational entertainment at high level.

I would definitely recommend the Nautilus E614 because it has all the bells and whistles, and it delivers surprisingly good price-performance value.
