Echelon EX-4S Exercise Bike w/screen and 1yr membership $999 in store at Costco YMMV

So I started researching Pelotons for my wife yesterday, and have major issue spending that much. Came upon this Echelon company in another SD thread. See that they have an EX3 that has no screen, and then an EX5 that has a big Peloton-size screen but that is like $1600 or something. Costco online has that EX5 for delivery and there are a fair number of negative reviews.

Someone had mentioned this EX4 in store Costco so I went to my store today and they had 6 on the floor. Nothing online I can find about it. Has a 10 inch "HD" screen so certainly smaller than an EX5, but better than EX3 which has none. I don't know the stats on flywheel but I can say that the box was surprisingly freakin heavy (says 120 pounds) so something in there must be "solid" haha.

I nabbed it just to have it, in case these start flying off the shelves once I post this haha. It says it comes with 1 yr of the app membership, which right there would be worth $480 I think. For me, much better to spend a thou and see if my wife really uses this, and can always do Peloton later or just stick with Echelon. We might find out that the 1yr app membership is hobbled in some way (like doesn't include live classes or something) but will see. I just nabbed the item and will store it till Xmas and then figure it out. If anyone else gets better info they can share. Benefit of this unit beyond the price is that I actually have it in hand, vs some vaporware delivery slot for Echelon EX5 or Peloton....

I can't vouch for this working myself because I don't have an echelon bike but during my own research in this I found this app:

https://apps.apple.com/us/app/qdo...1543684531

Apparently it can be used to pull stats from an echelon bike and then syncs with zwift
will try. thanks.

so far after tinkering with the 10 inch android tablet, i have managed to install nova launcher, netflix and other apk's. The thing is, this tablet has an MDM, so you are pretty much limited with just APK's. I am still trying to install a custom ROM and see if I can run a vanilla android pie to get the google playstore working and have ZWIFT installed then this is ready to go!

All ports behind the tablet seem to work.

Def keep us updated, and if you can write a tutorial, I'm sure many would appreciate it!

I'm still trying to figure out how to connect my Samsung watch to the Echelon app so I can get my heart rate syncing with it?

I just purchased this the other day after returning the pro form cbc tour de france. It is definitely a big step up in quality between the two.

Does everyone know how to activate the one year membership? I didn't see a card or any instructions in the box.

Yes there is a link in there to go to the website. Then you need to enter the serial number of the bike and it knows it came from Costco so gives you the 1 yr service when you sign up for an account. You need to add credit card so make sure to put a calendar reminder for 360 days out in case you dont want to automatically renew for 399 bucks haha

I meant this EX-4S versus the EX-5. Both are a $1K right now and I wonder if you're getting $500 more bike with the EX-5 since I don't care about the screen or classes that come with the EX-4S.
