Rating: 92/100. The new Landice E7 Elliptical for 2018 is an elite home fitness machine that exceeds club standards. It’s the only elliptical machine that Landice sells with a residential warranty, which covers the parts for a lifetime. The sale price of $3,495 includes delivery and setup.
Overall this trainer is a top FitRated recommendation for shoppers seeking long-term value, helpful exercise programming and healthy biomechanics. It’s also entertainment-friendly and a “connected” fitness machine:
- You can add a Landice Vision monitor, your own TV or a tablet computer.
- You can integrate the RunSocial and RunKeeper mobile apps. RunSocial features virtual outdoor workout settings, and RunKeeper can automatically log your exercise data.
For most high-end elliptical shoppers the Landice E7 feels wonderfully comfortable. The new model released in 2018 supports a typical adult stride length of 21”, has orthopedic pedals, and promotes proper posture with its center drive design. (With other elliptical machine styles, you might tend to lean forward or feel unsteady.) Medical-grade siderails are attached for safety, too.
For lower-body strength training you can choose from 20 resistance levels and pedal with zero harsh impact to your knees. Your upper body gets a workout with the E7’s moving arm bars, which have molded grips for comfort.
Beyond the ergonomics, electronics help Landice earn excellent reviews. The new E7 Elliptical is sold factory-direct with the Cardio control panel, which has a lifetime warranty. The Cardio control panel provides 10 preset workout programs (two with heart rate control) that you can customize for time, speed and resistance. Three fitness tests are also onboard, and you can add seven user-designed programs. Using the Bluetooth connection you can also access virtual outdoor exercise settings and export your workout data to a fitness tracker, as noted above.
In our review the main potential drawback of the new Landice E7 is the fixed 21” stride. Previous versions of this trainer have adjustable 17” to 23” strides. If you’re shorter than average, you’ll probably want an elliptical trainer that allows a shorter gait. Recommendations for ellipticals with adjustable strides are on our chart Best Ellipticals Over $2,500.

Landice E7 Features
The Landice E7 is a center drive elliptical trainer, which means its resistance system is stored beneath the pedals instead of out front or behind. This helps keep the machine’s dimensions home-friendly, especially compared with rear drive ellipticals. It’s about three feet wide and 5½ feet long. Center drive ellipticals like the Landice are also favored for being quiet, helping people stay balanced during exercise, and having fewer ways to break down compared with front drive machines.
Step-up height to access the E7 is just 7”. This is the lowest step-up height in the industry. This feature especially matters to people with sore knees.
Landice elliptical pedals are placed just 2” apart, which helps support natural motion. They’re orthopedic and cushioned with gel for comfort that encourages longer workouts.
The elliptical stride length is fixed at 21”. Previously the Landice E7 Elliptical had adjustable stride.
Resistance comes from a 20-pound magnetic flywheel. You can alternate among 20 resistance levels with digital controls.
For total-body cross training the E7 has moving arm bars. These are angled to fit trainees of different sizes, and the grips are molded for comfort.
For heart rate monitoring the E7 arrives with a wireless chest strap. It also has grip sensors.
To help you stay cool this elliptical has a fan and two water bottle holders.
The Landice Cardio control panel has a built-in ledge for holding a magazine or mobile device. This is convenient, but it means that some of the control panel will be hidden. You can order a tablet bracket to enjoy a different setup.
Television is an optional feature. You can attach your own flat-screen monitor (bracket sold separately) or order the E7 Elliptical with a 19” Landice Vision TV. The Landice elliptical TV can connect with standard cable providers and is also compatible with newfangled systems such as Amazon Roku.
Warranty & Guarantee
The Landice E7 home-use warranty includes this coverage:
– Parts: Lifetime
– Labor: 1 Year
Landice does not offer refunds on installed machinery. However, they do have a no-lemon guarantee… and unlike some lower-rated fitness brands, Landice won’t give you the run-around.
For most households seeking high-end elliptical trainers, the Landice E7 is an excellent choice. It lets you tone your whole body at any workout intensity without stressing your knees. The Cardio control panel delivers diverse and customizable workout routines, and unlike most elliptical computers it offers fitness tests as well. RunSocial and RunKeeper add to the appeal.
To encourage long workout sessions you can add your mobile device, attach a TV, or have the Landice E7 installed near your home entertainment system.
Remember that the stride for this new model is fixed at 21”… so about five percent of our readers would be more comfortable with shorter or longer settings. But if this fitness machine fits your height, it can help optimize your health for a lifetime. Highly recommended!
