The TruPace E220 elliptical has a list price of $799 but usually sells for a more reasonable $599 – a price that is closer to its true value.
The blue backlit LCD display shows readouts for speed, time, distance, watt, heart rate, and calories burned. Among the pre-set programs are 4 Heart Rate Control, plus 3 Goals for Time, Distance, and Calories, 1 Custom, Watts, and 12 additional programs with 8 levels each. The TruPace E220 elliptical offers 4 User Profiles to monitor progress.
The features include:
The TruPace E220 elliptical is identical to the E200 except that this one comes with a sound system consisting of built-in speakers and an audio plug-in, and it has a 1-year parts warranty instead of 90 days.
Other features include a long 18" stride length, 16 levels of resistance, articulating foot pedals, and hand grip heart rate monitors on the stationary handlebars.
Reviews have been good to above average on the TruPace E220 with users indicating they feel it is a good value for the price.
If you are looking at the entry level E200 at $499 and you plan to buy the one-year extended warranty for $79, you might as well upgrade to the E220 and get both the sound system and extended warranty together as a better deal.
Note: both the TruePace Fitness ellipticals have identical frames but they list the E200 as having a 250-lb user weight limit and the E220 with a 275-lb user weight limit. This is deceptive as they are the exact same 116-lb frame, but it does not matter either way as this trainer is really too light for anyone weighing over 175 pounds.
Though the E220 is the best value from the company, we recommend you skip the TruPace E220 elliptical at $599 and go with a Horizon EX-57 or EX-59 since those machines weight a solid 163 pounds and are made with Horizon’s great 6-Star Certification.
The TruPace would be an okay choice if you didn’t have other options, but since you can go with a Horizon or Schwinn for the same price or less, we would suggest you take that route.
