Trupace E220 or Trupace E250?
~~Side-By-Side Elliptical Comparison Review~~
Stride Length: In this first category, the two models are tied with a fixed stride length of 18” each which is good for users who are not that tall.
Resistance Levels: When it comes to the resistance levels category, the two are tied with 16 each. Having different settings can add to the intensity level of the workout.
Max Ramp: In this category, the Trupace E220 and the Trupace E250 are tied as they both do not offer an incline/ramp feature.
Built In Programs: When it comes to the built-in programs, the two are tied yet again as they both have 22 each. Variety is always important in a workout so that users won’t get bored easily.
Notable Features: In the bells and whistles category, the Trupace E250 beats its counterpart in a close fight. Both of them have enhanced foot pedals, test programs and built-in sound system.
What they differ in is on the console area since the E250 offers a touch screen LCD console while the E220 only has a backlit LCD console.
Parts Warranty: In terms of parts warranty, the Trupace E250 beats the Trupace E220 with a 2 to 1 year advantage.
Labor Warranty: When it comes to the labor warranty, the two are tied as they both offer a year of free coverage. Since most labor costs get quite expensive these days, you should take advantage of these offers.
Machine Weight: It is another tie between the two in this category as they both weigh at 116 lbs each which is too lightweight and may not be too sturdy.
Machine User Weight Capacity: When it comes to the maximum user weight capacity, the Trupace E250 wins with 300 lbs. On the other hand, the Trupace E220 can only accommodate users who weigh up to 275 lbs. However, for safety purposes, there should only be a 100-lb difference between the actual machine weight and the max user weight capacity.
Money Back Guarantee: In terms of money back guarantee, the two models are tied at 30 days each.
Conclusion: At the time of the review, there’s a $200 price difference between the two but it may not be justified as the E250’s features are only minor improvements of its counterpart.
The two are almost identical. They are equipped with the same stride length that are fixed at 18”, 16 resistance levels, same number of built-in programs, built-in sound system, enhanced foot pedals, user profiles and fitness tests, plus 1 year labor warranty. They also offer a 30-day money back guarantee.
