In keeping with some of the other cross trainers in the Pure range, the Tunturi Pure R 4.0 Elliptical Cross Trainer includes some display features that can make your training much more enjoyable.

If you have an iPad, connectivity to the Tunturi training app through Bluetooth opens up a whole new display screen. This gives you access to even more workout options than already stored on the main machine.

The following product article looks at the app in more detail as well as many other useful features to help you decide whether this is the right cross trainer for you.

Design features


Transport wheels on the rear base support make it much easier to move the Tunturi Pure R 4.0 if needed



While the main feature that sets the Tunturi Pure R 4.0 apart from other cross trainers in the Pure range is the iConsole option, there are many other useful features that can benefit your workouts.

The angles of the handlebars have been designed to help maintain the minimalistic look of the machine while still being ergonomically effective for your running stride.

Heart rate hand sensors have been added to display an accurate heart rate measurement on the screen which can be useful when using the heart rate training programmes.

The Tunturi Pure R 4.0 is also the first cross trainer in the Pure range to offer the 4 adjustable support feet on the base of the frame. This helps to ensure the machine is stable even if the ground is slightly uneven.

Depending on your training preference you can choose to buy the Pure R 4.0 as either a front or rear driven cross trainer.

Display console design

Unlike the Pure Cross 6.0 and 8.0 models, the Tunturi Pure R 4.0 doesn’t use a central dial for adjusting the different user profile and workout settings.

The design of the display console has still been kept very simple, with the number of buttons kept to a minimum. Two of these buttons labelled ‘Body Fat’ and ‘Recovery’ can be used to activate different types of fitness test.

The ‘Body Fat’ button will test your body fat percentage and BMI rating, while the ‘Recovery’ button can be used at the end of a workout while holding the heart rate sensors to test your heart rate recovery.

To make it easier to see which workout programme you are currently using, there is a small image displayed for each which gives you a good indication of what each workout involves. The recommended fitness ability for each program is also shown underneath each image.

The backlit 6″ 2 colour LCD display helps ensure that you always have a clear view of the most important information for your workout. Workout time, speed, distance, calories burned, heart rate, current workout programme and flywheel rotations per minute are all clearly displayed.

As well as the built in display console, unique to the Tunturi Pure R 4.0 and F 4.0 models is the ability to rest a 10″ iPad in front of the screen and connect to the Tunturi training app via Bluetooth.

The Tunturi training app and user profiles

Once you have the Tunturi training app installed on your iPad, you can setup various options that can be loaded onto the Tunturi Pure R 4.0 and used in your training.

Creating new user profiles can be done in a matter of seconds, only requiring a name, age, height and weight. You can even choose from a selection of three different colours for the background colour of the app (Blue, Green and Pink being the choices).

The training register allows you to setup up to 10 different users, making it ideal for family use at home or light commercial use in an environment such as schools.

Setting custom workouts is much easier when using a 10 inch iPad screen connected to the Pure R 4.0

Manual training programmes are easy to setup for each user, providing you with options for setting the duration, distance and target calories burned for the workout.

You don’t have to worry about the iPad obscuring the workout information on the display console, as a quick swipe across the screen will display all your workout information as well as allowing you to alter the training resistance.

Part of what makes the app for the Tunturi Pure R 4.0 so attractive is the option called ‘i-Route’. This lets you choose from different running courses in a variety of countries, then watch as you progress around the track.

You still have access to all the same pre-defined training programmes as when using the built in display console, which also makes designing up to 10 custom user workout programmes much easier.

Simply dragging bars up from the bottom of the screen will set points during the workout where you want the intensity to vary and by how much, making it particularly effective for designing interval training programmes.
