Attractive and highly functional, the WaterRower Natural Rowing Machine in Ash Wood with S4 Monitor is designed to emulate the dynamics of a boat moving moving through water for an authentic rowing experience.

The WaterRower Natural Rowing Machine’s water flywheel utilizes 2 paddles in an enclosed water tank that provides self-regulated resistance that’s ultra smooth and quiet.

You are in total control of your workout as the resistance works on the premise that as you paddle faster, the more the drag is increased for a higher intensity workout or paddle slower for a less intensive workout.

As you row with the WaterRower Natural, you can hear a slight swishing sound similar to real water rowing which gives a soothing and relaxing feel.

WaterRower Natural with recoil belt & pulleys, countoured seat with 4 corner wheels that glide on dual rails

recoil belt & pulleys,
countoured seat with 4 corner
wheels that glide on dual rails
With no motor and utilizing a recoil belt and pulleys that don’t require regular oiling or cleaning like traditional rowing machines, the WaterRower Natural is designed to be very low maintenance.

For comfort and increased stability, the WaterRower Natural features a contoured seat with 4 corner wheels that glide smoothly along dual rails.

The WaterRower Natural’s frame is hand-crafted from solid Ash hardwood which is chosen for its ability to absorb sound and vibration.  Environmentally-friendly, the wood is sourced from replenished forests.  The frame is finished in honey oak stain and Danish Oil to give it its attractive deep lustre color.

To help save space when not in use, the WaterRower Natural can be flipped upright without having to empty the water out of the tank.  It also features transport wheels for easy relocation.

WaterRower S4 Monitor, with 6 information & program windows, 6 Quick Selection buttons, 3 Navigation buttons
WaterRower S4 Monitor
To help keep you motivated, the WaterRower Natural comes with an S4 Performance Monitor with which you can keep track of your workout stats.

The S4 Monitor features six information and program windows, along with six Quick Selection buttons and 3 Navigation buttons.  Performance stats displayed include distance, time, intensity, stroke rate, zone bar, and heart-rate (compatible with optional heart-rate chest strap and receiver).

As you would expect with a rowing machine of this quality, the WaterRower Natural comes with a generous manufacturer’s warranty that’s upgradable to 5 years on frame and 3 years on components upon completion of registration.




Fitness tip:  Exercising on a Rowing Machine for just 30 minutes could burn between 262-449 calories for women or 310-531 calories for men, depending on the intensity of the rowing.


Let’s take a look at the features and specifications in detail of the WaterRower Natural to help you decide if it’s the best indoor water rowing machine for you:

The Schwinn MY17 270 2017 Recumbent Bike is the updated model of the popular Schwinn 270 2013.  The Schwinn 270 2017 retains the same high-end features of the 2013 model and is virtually the same bike but with a couple of exceptions as follows:

·        The Schwinn MY17 270 2017 recumbent bike comes with a newly designed console that has been streamlined for ease of use, making it more user-friendly and intuitive to use.  Don’t worry though – it doesn’t cut back on features!  The 2017 model offers the same amount of programs, resistance levels, Dual Track blue backlit LCD display (2 screens), sound system with MP3 input, USB port, 4 user profiles, media shelf, and cooling fan just like the 2013 model.

·        The Schwinn MY17 270 2017 recumbent bike now includes Bluetooth connectivity which is a feature the 2013 model does not have.  The Bluetooth connectivity of the 2017 model allows for quick and easy transferring of workout data to online fitness tracking apps.  However, the 2013 model does have a workaround as you can transfer data via its USB port instead.

So apart from the above 2 exceptions, the Schwinn MY17 270 2017 and Schwinn 270 2013 are exactly the same – both are sturdily constructed and ergonomically designed for comfort and allow for a maximum user weight capacity of up to 300 lbs.

Both the Schwinn MY17 270 2017 and Schwinn 270 2013 offer plenty of variety to keep your workouts motivating and progressively challenging.  Each bike features 29 workout programs (including profile, heart-rate, custom, fitness test, recovery test, and quick-start) and 25 ECB resistance levels.

The Schwinn MY17 270 2017 and Schwinn 270 2013 recumbent bikes utilize a high-speed high-inertia perimeter-weighted flywheel together with an Eddy Current Brake resistance system which combine to provide super smooth and quiet operation.

The Schwinn MY17 270 2017 and Schwinn 270 2013 recumbent bikes feature a step-through frame design that make it easy to mount and dismount the large comfortable seat.  The seat is constructed with a thick padded contoured base and large vented backrest for support and airflow.  The seat sits on a sliding seat rail system with which you can easily adjust the seat height / proximity to the pedals via a simple-to-use lever, making it ideal for multiple users of different heights.

Additional features of both the Schwinn MY17 270 2017 and Schwinn 270 2013 recumbent bikes include a 3-piece crank; over-sized pedals with safety straps for secure foot placement; front-mounted transport wheels for easy relocation; integrated levellers and mid-frame support for added stability.





Let’s take a look at the main differences and similarities in features and specifications at a glance between the Schwinn MY17 270 2017 versus Schwinn 270 2013 to help you decide on which is the best recumbent bike for you:

Air fan exercise bikes are uniquely designed to provide an effective total body workout that’s low impact on your joints.

As the name suggests, air fan exercise bikes utilize what is known as an air resistance system which works on the premise that the harder/faster you pedal, the more intense the resistance will become – effectively offering unlimited resistance levels and putting you in total control of your workout.

Air fan exercise bikes feature moving handlebars that allow you to work your upper body in unison with your lower body as you cycle, giving a much more effective workout than a traditional exercise bike.

Sunny Health & Fitness offer a range of air fan exercise bikes to suit different users and different fitness levels.  All the Sunny Health & Fitness air fan exercise bikes are very competitively priced – their entry level air bikes are ideal for beginners and those on a tight budget, and even their more advanced air bikes are extremely well-priced and rival some of the more well-known and more expensive bikes in the higher categories.

Here are my top 4 best Sunny Health & Fitness Air Bikes / Fan Exercise Bikes that stand out from the crowd in the low-priced air bikes category:

·         Sunny Health & Fitness SF-B2706 Tornado Air Bike
·         Sunny Health & Fitness SF-B2640 Air Bike Trainer
·         Sunny Health & Fitness SF-B2618 Air Resistance Hybrid Fan Bike
·         Sunny Health & Fitness SF-B2621 Cross Training Fan Bike

The SF-B2706 Tornado also offers a variety of programs including intervals and Bluetooth connectivity for heart-rate monitoring – none of the other Sunny air bikes offer these features, but do come with a simple LCD monitor that displays basic stats such as time, speed, distance and calories burned.
