This rowing machine was rated The Best model because it rowed more smoothly than other models that cost under $400 in tests by the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute. Its 11-lb. flywheel provides eight levels of magnetic resistance and its belt drive mechanism pulled and retracted without sticking or changing tension to provide a smoother rowing movement than other tested models. Its monitor displays time, calories, distance, and more, and a built-in bracket accommodates a smartphone or tablet. It was also found to be the most well-constructed of all tested models thanks to precisely machined parts made from superior materials, key components for rowers that are regularly folded, unfolded, moved, and stored. Supports up to 285 lbs. with a 11" L x 14" W seat and 44" slide rail. Deployed 78" L x 22 1/2" W x 22 1/2" H; folded 36" L x 22 1/2" W x 47" H. (55 3/4 lbs.)
Determining The Best Since 1983
The Hammacher Schlemmer Institute has served as a non-profit consumer advocacy organization since 1983.
Unburdened by outside interests, it thoroughly vets products via rigorous testing to determine which one earns a ranking of The Best.
It identifies qualifying products in a particular category using a wide-ranging search of the marketplace, including items sold by its competitors.
