There is a growing movement towards healthy living and the incorporation of physical activity into our daily routines. One way that people are doing this is by using standing desks and under desk bikes to stay active while they work. These devices allow you to pedal or stand while you work, providing a low-impact workout that can help you burn calories, improve your cardiovascular health, and reduce stress.
In this post, we'll be comparing two newly announced under desk bikes: the ACER Kinekt BD 3 Bike Desk and the Ergonomyx Smartphone Charging Under Desk Bike. We'll be highlighting the importance of innovations in the standing desk and bike industry and how these products can help people incorporate physical activity into their daily routines.
Design and build quality
The ACER Kinekt BD 3 Bike Desk is not yet available for purchase, so it has not yet been reviewed by consumers. However, based on the information provided by the manufacturer, it has a sleek and stylish design and a sturdy steel frame. Interestingly, it appears that ACER’s bike and desk are sold as one contained unit, meaning that users are unable to separate the desk from the bike.The Ergonomyx Smartphone Charging Under Desk Bike is a new generation of their already tried and tested Under Desk Bike. Like its predecessor the Ergonomyx Smartphone Charging Under Desk Bike is built with a durable steel frame and comfortable, padded seat. The pedals on the Ergonomyx Bike are also adjustable, allowing you to find the perfect resistance level for your workout.
Similar in features, both the ACER Kinekt BD 3 Bike Desk and the Ergonomyx Smartphone Charging Under Desk Bike offer app integration, allowing you to track your progress and set goals through a smartphone app. The ACER is expected to have Bluetooth connection, as well as two USB-C and USB-A charging ports. The Ergonomyx also has Bluetooth connection and offers phone charging through a USB-C port. Both bikes will power your devices as you move, converting the power generated in your legs to electricity to charge your devices, sustainably.
Price and Portability
The greatest differences between the two comes in terms of price and portability. The ACER Kinekt BD 3 Bike Desk is priced at $1,356.69CAD and is expected to be heavier and less portable than the Ergonomyx Smartphone Charging Under Desk Bike. In contrast, the Ergonomyx is priced at $499CAD and is sold separately from the desk, allowing for greater portability. It has wheels and weighs only 17kg, making it easier to move from one location to another, and can easily be folded and stored away when not in use.
The standing desk and bike industry is an exciting and growing field, with new innovations emerging all the time. These products offer a great way for people to incorporate physical activity into their daily routines and improve their overall health and wellbeing. While the ACER Kinekt BD 3 Bike Desk may have some appealing features, it is not yet available for purchase and its higher price and expected lack of portability make it a less appealing option compared to the tried and tested Ergonomyx Smartphone Charging Under Desk Bike. The Ergonomyx offers a sturdy build, comfortable seat, added features, and greater portability at a more affordable price. Its smaller and more portable size, as well as its lower price, make it a standout choice in the market.
