Exercise smarter

The Cubii JR1 Seated Under-Desk Elliptical Machine connects to your iPhone or Android phone, Fitbit smartwatch, or Apple Health Kit via Bluetooth to let you set goals and track your calories, strides, miles, minutes and RPM. It even has an easy-to-read LCD screen that lets you know you’re on track.

The smart device not only tracks your progress but acts as a virtual trainer, working to help you improve your posture and engage your core while you train. It has eight resistance levels, an ergonomic design, and it’s so quiet you won’t lose focus or risk distracting others in the room.

You can’t add more hours to the day but you can maximize the ones you’ve got with a tiny, hands-free home gym. Pretty genius if you ask me — or any of the thousands of Amazon reviewers raving over the Cubii JR1 Seated Under-Desk Elliptical Machine.

And don’t let the 'renewed' tag fool you. Amazon has rigorously and professionally inspected, tested and cleaned all of its refurbished products, so they’ll work and look like they're fresh from the factory. And know this: Amazon Renewed products are backed with a 90-day guarantee that the retail giant will replace the item or completely refund your purchase if you're not satisfied with it.
