CONSOLE- EXPLAINED

THE NEW RULES OF CARDIO CONSOLES 

The fast evolution in in digital devices is changing everything and everybody.

 

 

Button Essentials

The Quickstart button is the key. As the most-used feature on a console, it

hast to be large and clearly visible.

 

Speed and Incline buttons have to be unmissable too. After all, most of

the time, people are DIY’ing their way through a workout. They need to make

changes easily — even when the person is tired, sweaty, and in motion.

 

Don’t forget to stop! The stop and cooldown buttons have to be equally visible and easy to hit. Because you never know when someone needs to take a timeout in a hurry.

 

The F.I.R.S.T. things a user has to see.

An excersizer stepping onto a new cardio machine is like a hiker at the beginning of a road. They’ll stop and read the map if they have to. But really, they just want to get going. The best console is like a clearly marked road map.

And there are 5 traits a console should display from the F.I.R.S.T. moment a person steps onto the machine:

 

FAMILIAR

Users can easily recognize the machine and what’s available to them, no matter the equipment

 

INTUITIVE

Messages help users clearly understand what to do next

 

RELIABLE

Operations work with no hassle

 

SIMPLE

Doesn’t overwhelm the user with unwanted or rarely-used features

 

TRACKER COMPILABILITY

Works with a other devices, pairing up with them quickly
