Comments: i bought this in Dec of 2011, now it's Jan of 2013 i still love this machine specially iFIT that's why i bought the extended warranty. I'm a road and a trail runner (26 to 50 miles) and this is an alternative trainer when you can go to road or mountain trail running. The Android device is ok (but i haven't tested the new and improved iFIT ).
