The Smooth CE 3.2 Elliptical Review


I’ve already reviewed a version of the Smooth CE3.2 Elliptical with my CE2.1 Elliptical review. The Smooth CE3.2 is an upgraded version of the CE2.1, with a slightly higher end LED console, wireless heart rate monitoring, the addition of 9 user profiles and a longer parts warranty.

The Smooth CE3.2 has a very solid, smooth and comfortable elliptical feel to it, and is one of the better designed rear drive ellipticals. The 18″ stride, articulating foot pedals and great pedal placement give the CE3.2 the same natural motion the CE2.1 elliptical has.

While I do like the feel of the Smooth CE3.2 elliptical and the additional features it has, I’d recommend the Smooth CE2.1 over the CE3.2. For the money, I feel the CE2.1 is a better value at under $1300.

The upgraded console and wireless heart rate monitor are great for those looking for to refine their workouts, but for most people the pulse grip heart rate monitor should be more than enough.

For being a very decent addition to the Smooth line, the Treadmill Sensei gives the Smooth CE 3.2 Elliptical 4 out of 5 golden buddahs.
