Overall Rating


Pros Two “pros” shine on this model: the new and improved P80 console and the unique 3-in-1 design that makes it easy to achieve low-impact workouts with high-performance results. The new console features an attractive 15 inch LCD touchscreen display and Preva® Network compatibility.
Cons This is a very expensive piece of equipment, and other than the console, there aren’t many differences between this elite model and the 835 just under this one (except that it can save you a few thousand dollars).
Summary Despite the price tag, you are getting multiple machines in one with this AMT 885 model. The elite P80 console is impressive and easy to use, offering users a large 15 inch touchscreen display that is also compatible with iPod/iPads. This model matches entertainment features with performance in the form of a unique 3-in-1 machine that offers something for everyone.

The Bottom Line

The P80 console is what takes this trainer over the top in price, so if you are looking to save a few thousand dollars, you can go with the AMT 835, also with Open Stride™ technology, which has the P30 console (no touch screen, slightly less flashy, but cheaper). This 835 model is essentially the same machine, though a little more compact, with a different console and over $2,000 less expensive.
