'ZDNet Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNet's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNet nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNet's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards.

Peloton Bike Basics for $1,195

Save $300 + free delivery and setup ($250 value)


A tried-and-true workout machine, the $1,195 ($300 off) Peloton Bike sits at the top of ZDNet's best home gym equipment for good reason. Besides building a cult following through virtual, online spin cycle classes,  the Peloton Bike has the caveat of catering to all fitness levels. You don't have to be a marathon cyclist to get an effective, full-body workout. Note that a $39 per month subscription is required to get you on-demand access to Peloton's catalog of trainers and class types, ranging from beginner to advanced.

NordicTrack Commercial S22i Studio Cycle for $1,499

Save $699 + 30-day iFIT Family Membership ($39 value)


Arguably the best Peloton alternative, NordicTrack's commercial S22i studio cycle is currently on sale for just $1,499 ($699 off), with a free 30-day iFIT Family Membership ($39 value) included. For the price, you're getting a formidable exercise bike that's impressively quiet -- thanks to magnetic resistance, a rotating HD touchscreen that spans 22 inches, and NordicTrack's Quiet Drive tech, which silently shifts the incline and decline to realistically mimic the terrain of where you're virtually riding. For the full experience, connect to the iFIT network of live and on-demand workouts and you'll have fun sweating in no time.

The pandemic hasn't made it easy for working out...outside. If you miss curling dumbbells and using the pull-down bar at your local gym, the Bowflex PR1000 is for you. Priced at $599 ($200 off), the PR1000 is a 25-in-1 strength workout machine. It features a 200-pound power rod for heavy-duty resistance and an array of pulleys to get an arm, shoulder, chest, or back exercise in.

ProForm 750R Smart Power for $599.99

Save $400 + 30-day iFIT Family Membership ($39 value)


Perhaps you're more of an upper-body kind of person? Walmart currently has the ProForm 750R Smart Power on sale for $599.99, a $400 discount from retail. For the price, you get a commercial-grade rowing machine, built with over 26 resistance levels and an air-cooling system to replicate that of an actual boat. It's a great pickup if building core strength and saving money are your goals.

Apple Watch models for as low as $239

Save up to $70


The unsung hero of workouts: smartwatches. The original Apple Watch launched back in 2015 and has remained a Goliath in the smartwatch space, thanks to its reliability and abundance of fitness-tailored features. Right now, you can save on a bounty of Apple Watch models, including the latest Apple Watch 7 and the Apple Watch SE.

Fitbit Sense Smartwatch for $119

Save $100

Fitbit Sense

Another killer deal on a fitness smartwatch, Amazon is currently discounting the Fitbit Sense by $100, putting the previously $300 wearable in a more affordable price range. ZDNet's resident smartwatch reviewer, Matthew Miller, tested the Fitbit when first released and found its scope of health and wellness tracking to be accurate and dependable. It carries a bright AMOLED watch face, is sweat- and water-resistant (up to 50 meters), and can last up to six days on a charge.
