Representatives of the middle price class with a magnetic loading system have more opportunities and more return from classes. This is the best-selling class and the optimal ratio of "price-quality". The most expensive – electric/electromagnetic simulators (Ergometers). They are not only "smart" and "skillful", but also the most accurate – can maximally control the progress of classes, because scrupulously measure the level of load in watts (the importance of such control – a special conversation). Their minus (except high value of) – not can work, if there is no -. Changing the load during training can be mechanical and automatic. Automatic is more expensive, but you will not have to interrupt the training process. Even the process of changing the load can be stepped and smooth. Smooth is more effective.

Almost every monitor screen shows the time, calorie consumption, speed (or frequency) traveled distance (or the total amount of pushes, strokes...), pulse rate.
