Comfort

“The Smooth Agile DMT X2 Elliptical is a sturdy elliptical and the motion is smooth and quiet.” – Click here to read the full review on Amazon.

The Smooth Fitness Agile DMT-X2 Elliptical Trainer is incredibly solid and sturdy and has a really natural and comfortable elliptical feel. The position your feet move in to (toes in front of knees) genuinely does contribute towards better posture and musculoskeletal support during exercise sessions on the elliptical. The footpads are extremely comfortable to use when combined with the 18-21 inch adjustable stride which is the perfect range for the majority of users.

Unfortunately, the screen angle could cause a lot of issues for the majority of users; the angle it faces means you cannot view the screen properly during use. The colour of the writing is also not bold enough to see properly so the viewing is rather uncomfortable as you may have to stoop in order to keep an eye on your workout progress.

The fan is also quite poor and doesn’t move much air, this in turn doesn’t add anything to the comfort value of this trainer.

 

Performance

“The wireless heart monitor makes for easy use of the multiple programs built into the unit. The fan is a nice touch.” – Click here to read the full review on Amazon.

The programming is a little difficult but does offer a great variety in the way of intense, non-repetitive workouts. Most of the workouts have a adjustability capability within them which means you can vary your exercise even more. For example; the endurance program contains full programs which work you through different levels of intensity. Each of the 8 levels are adjustable in conjunction with the light touch control which enables you to change your workout intensity without even letting go of the handlebars (a nice touch…literally).

The facility to track your performance is available and your heart rate is accurately tracked using the wireless chest strap, however the facility to see the feedback is obstructed by the problematic screen. The trainer does optimize the heart rate data by adjusting the intensity of your workout to help you stay within your peak heart rate capacity; this feature is extremely useful and intuitive.

 

Ease Of Use & Convenience

The Smooth Fitness Agile DMT-X2 Elliptical Trainer is easy to assemble and the manual is very easy to read and follow. The console itself isn’t particularly easy to use and the programming is a little fiddly.

The light touch control is very convenient and encourages you to push yourself harder during the programs because it is so easy to use. The screen angle is very inconvenient and renders the console itself very difficult to use during a workout session.

 

Entertainment

“I love the thumb contols and the built in iPod adapter.” – Click here to read the full review on Amazon.

You get quite a lot on paper with the DMT-X2 entertainment features; an LCD screen, reading rack, iPod and MP3 docking station and inbuilt speakers. Unfortunately, these features seem to be a little bit of a gimmick rather than useful components for you to enjoy.

The LCD screen isn’t high quality and isn’t easily viewed because of the strange angle, the reading rack is OK but not particularly sturdy, and the iPod and MP3 docking station works fine but the sound quality of the speakers is fairly poor.

The fact that the programs are so intuitive and well thought out does however mean that the entertainment value of the machine itself and its workout capabilities shine through.

Final Verdict

“Well made and built to last. I would buy this again in a heartbeat.” – Click here to read the full review on Amazon.

The Smooth Fitness Agile DMT-X2 Elliptical Trainer itself is extremely well designed and feels high quality and enjoyable to use. Unfortunately the design flaw of the screen angle combined with the below par standard of all the entertainment features means that in this instance, the $1800 price tag is a little steep.

You are getting a fantastic quality product for the price but with the programs being so brilliant, it’s a little annoying that you aren’t able to see them on the screen during your workout rather than just feeling the physical effects.

The manufacturer could have also put a little more into the entertainment features for an elliptical at this price point as slightly higher quality speakers would have been a nice addition.
