NordicTrack Releases the First-Ever Alexa-Controlled Smart Dumbbells

The home workout space is seeing an unprecedented amount of growth. With fitness and technology companies creating more accessibly-priced machines that have subscription services, as well as the growing distrust of gyms due to the pandemic, more people than ever are investing in at-home fitness solutions. While many have neither the funds nor the space for a complex weightlifting system, adjustable dumbbells are an affordable and compact alternative for most. One company that is staking its claim to this segment of the market is fitness standout NordicTrack, which has just released its first set of smart dumbbells in the iSelect.

As the name suggests, the iSelect adjustable dumbbells allow the user to select the desired weight of the dumbbell from five to fifty pounds. What the name does not suggest, however, is that the iSelect dumbbells are voice-controlled and compatible with Amazon’s Alexa — an industry first for a set of adjustable dumbbells. NordicTrack’s proprietary motorized weight selector responds to the user’s voice prompts, which allows for hands-free weight adjustment of five-pound increments. For the taciturn-types who care not to use their words, the iSelect dock features a knob that allows users to adjust the dumbbells’ weight manually. Furthermore, the dock has an easy-to-read, digital LED screen that displays the weight of your dumbbells, so you always know the setting. The dumbbells themselves feature a non-slip diamond knurling grip for enhanced handling and control, while the ergonomic square plates are designed so they won’t roll when placed on the ground.

What’s more, the iSelect dumbbells come with a 30-Day iFIT membership, which is NordicTrack’s interactive fitness program. With it, users can stream live or on-demand workouts on their televisions, tablets, or phones. For those looking to up their home gym game, these well-designed adjustable dumbbells take the place of twenty different free weights and offer a seamless workout experience. The NordicTrack iSelect adjustable dumbbells retail for $429 and can be purchased on Amazon.

Purchase: $429
