The BladeZ Metron and Motion Home Trainers are very similar workout machines. Compared with the BladeZ Motion, the Metron has four more programs but a lower user weight capacity (265 pounds versus 300 pounds) and a shorter warranty.

Elliptical Hits: Nice Features of the BladeZ Metron Home Cross Trainer

  • Upper body workout – The movable handlebars help increase calorie expenditure and tone the upper body. The handlebars are padded for extra comfort and their ergonomic design is intended to fit users of different heights.
  • 18” stride – The 18” stride is long enough for smaller adults to take full elliptical strides.
  • Oversized pedals – The Metron has oversized pedals. The extra room lets people reposition their feet to reduce fatigue during exercise. BladeZ pedals also have texturized rubber to improve traction.
  • Two data screens – Two LCD screens display exercise data (heart rate, time, distance, speed, and calories).
  • Preset programs – This machine includes 16 workouts that can be used with 16 resistance levels.
  • Heart rate monitor – Contact heart rate sensors help people exercise within a target heart range to make the most of workout time.
  • Movable – Transport wheels help make the machine easy to move.
  • Good warranty – The BladeZ Metron warranty includes a lifetime warranty on the frame, a year on parts, and a year of labor.

Overall Rating for the BladeZ Metron Home Trainer

The Metron is one of the better BladeZ cross trainers, but the Motion is a better buy for a similar price. Its parts warranty is two years longer and the machine can handle heavier use.

What else to consider:

  • Schwinn manufactures some low-priced machines, such as the 430 and 460 ellipticals, that are also known for their durability and good warranties.
  • For a few hundred dollars more, see the very impressive Bladez X6. It has a video screen and a 21” stride.
