The Sole Also has duplicate controls built right into the handlebars. The SOLE also has adjustable foot pedals for less strain.

Both consoles have a fan and speakers, the SOLE E95 also has bluetooth enabled speakers. Each console has dedicated buttons for programs, and ramp height.

The Schwinn 470 beats the SOLE on the number of resistance levels (25 vs. 20), and on the number of workout programs (29 vs. 10).

The Sole E95 beats the Schwinn by having a much heavier sturdier frame (higher 400 lb. user weight). The Sole E95 also has a longer frame warranty (lifetime) and 5 year electronics warranty Vs. 2 years on the Schwinn. The Sole has controls built-in to the handle bars, very convenient feature which is absent on the Schwinn 470. One last feature unique to SOLE is the adjustable foot pedals to reduce strain on joints.

Both models have motorized incline, Pulse Grips, and Wireless heart telemetry.


Bottom Line Schwinn 470 Vs. Sole E95 Differences: The SOLE E95 model offers a much sturdier frame, higher user weight, controls in the handles, and longer warranty. The Schwinn 470 sells for less than the E95 but offers more resistance levels, and workout programs. Both ellipticals offer a motorized incline, USB Charging port, wireless telemetry, and a backlit screen. We feel that the Schwinn 470 is the best value for the money, but that the SOLE E95 will be more durable for heavier users with its heavier frame and feel more like a gym elliptical.
