Vision X20 Console

UPDATE: The X20 is no longer available, replaced by the all new and improved X40 model. Check them out on sale here.

The Vision X20 elliptical has a nice warranty (3 years parts, 1-year labor) and a 300-lb user weight capacity. It has a multi-ribbed Poly-V belt drive train with an ECB Motor-operated Permanent Magnet and a weighted flywheel for smooth and quiet operation with a flatter ellipse pattern for a comfortable ride. Other features include stationary handlebars with contact heart rate sensors, moving handlebars for an upper body workout, Quick Start buttons, narrow pedal spacing, a 20" stride length, and a solid 188-lb frame.

  • The Simple console has a basic LCD screen, 7 programs, 16 levels of resistance, and contact heart rate monitoring.
  • The Deluxe console has a blue backlit LCD screen, 8 programs including the Octane SPRINT 8® feature, 20 levels of resistance, and wireless & contact HR monitoring.
  • The Premier Console has a full color LCD screen with 4 background scenes and a slideshow for 10 personal photos, 22 programs including SPRINT 8®, wireless & contact HR monitoring, a USB port, and A/V ports compatible for an iPod and a DVD device.

Our Thoughts

The Vision X20 is priced at $999 (Basic Console), $1,299 (Deluxe), and $1,499 (Premium). The basic trainer rates well in reviews for quality, quiet operation, ergonomics, and programming.

If all you want is a good elliptical workout without the frills, the Simple console is the best option. If you want a hands-free telemetric heart rate sensor, the $1,299 is still a good buy.

If you are going to spend $1,499 on the Premium console X20, then you should carefully compare its specs to other models at that price point. You will likely find better deals going with a different model. But for $999, the basic Vision X20 elliptical is a good choice.
