  • HD 7" touchscreen for stats tracking, accessing iFit and 30 built-in workouts, and surfing the web
  • Automated incline and a wireless heart rate monitoring system (chest strap included)
  • Cross-trainer is a SpaceSaver- it can be folded vertically and requires very little space for storage.


  • Long footprint when unfolded
  • Light drive limits the smoothness and force of the ride with only 18 lb Flywheel
  • Only has an 18” stride length which can be not so comfortable to shorter trainees. 20” stride would be better.


When you have little space to spare for a fitness machine at home, then go for the SE9i. It requires very little space for storage and has transport wheels. Easy to fold and store every after workouts. It has a quality for some fitness enthusiasts but does not meet everyone’s needs. It’s not ideal for short people and rides are not as smooth and challenging as other ellipticals at the same price. So if you’re into light to medium workouts with a machine that’s easy to manage, then this elliptical is for you.
