It was made by utilizing heavy duty and high durability steel frame. The most important thing is they added a support tube below the seat as you can see, this tube offer extra strength to hold up the seat and your body weight.

- The machine can connected via Bluetooth to their mobile app to track exercise, set goals, share progress, and complete 10000 steps a day. This is good, because many people use some fitness apps to keep and track their activities, such as Keep, Nike Club, etc, and I also find they can connect to other apps too.
- 8 levels of resistance allow you to adjust the tension level of workout. This is a standard spec of most of the home gym equipment, not very applicable in this model. Because I don’t count on this product to do training, I just want to move my leg while I was sitting and working. Right? Too much resistance may distract my focus on job.
