Sunny Health & Fitness SF-E905

The SF-E905 Elliptical is an entry-level elliptical designed by Sunny Health & Fitness to help you keep your form by doing low-impact cardio. The Sunny Health & Fitness SF-E905 has a compact design with a short stride length of 11-inches, so if you are tall, this machine will disappoint. If you need an affordable magnetic elliptical with a moderate weight capacity (max. 220 lbs.) it is hard to go wrong with this model.

User Weight Capacity: 220 lbs.
Heart Rate Monitor: Yes
Resistance Type: Magnetic
Resistance Levels: 8 levels
Device Holder: No

What You Get

It is not a high-capacity elliptical, it is rated for a maximum of 220 lbs. user weight. It has an 11-inch stride length. The LCD on the console lets you know how many calories burned, your heart rate(pulse), distance, speed, and time. Other key specs include an 8-level magnetic resistance system, non-slip pedals, padded and slip-free handlebars with pulse sensors for monitoring your heart rate.

Design and Dimensions

The Sunny Health & Fitness SF-E905’s dimensions are 28 in. L x 17 in W. x 57 in. H when assembled, it is compact, lightweight, and easily transportable with the wheels on the front for easy moving. The pedals are large and textured to prevent slipping during workouts.

Display and Heart Rate Monitor

The Sunny Health & Fitness SF-E905 has a very basic mono-color LCD that lets you know how many calories burned, your heart rate(pulse), distance, speed, and time. One disadvantage is it does not have a device holder above the console. It has a contact-grip heart rate monitor on the handles.

Pros and Cons

The Sunny Health & Fitness SF-E905 has its advantages and flaws, below is an overview:

We like;

  • Easy to assemble
  • Integrated heart rate monitor
  • Very affordable price

We don’t like:

  • Stride length is short for many people
  • Low weight capacity, only 220 lbs.
  • Only 90-day warranty

In Conclusion

With an attractive price tag, compact design, and many happy user reviews, the Sunny Health & Fitness SF-E905 can be ideal for shorter people who prefer light workouts. We like that this machine comes equipped with a heart rate monitor, which is hard to find on elliptical in this price range.
