Increase of decrease weight with you voice
The NordicTrack iSelect adjustable dumbbell is the first one that's compatible with Alexa. You can tell the Amazon virtual assistant to adjust the weight of each dumbbell from 5-50 lbs. If you prefer or if you don't have WiFi, you can also adjust the weight via a knob. A small LED screen tells you the current weight of each dumbbell.
Sold as a pair, the iSelect includes a compact tray and a removable tablet holder for streaming iFit workouts. However, placing a tablet near the path of a heavy object might not be a good idea.
A 30-day iFit membership is included with purchase. A credit/debit card is required to activate the free membership, which auto-renews unless cancelled in advance. An iFit membership is currently $39/month for the monthly family plan, $180/ year for the yearly individual plan, and $396/year for the yearly family plan.
The dumbbell itself features square plates for stability during floor based exercises and non-slip handles. The range of weights is equivalent to 20 sets of dumbbells. All this for $429.

The NordicTrack iSelect Adjustable dumbbell set is nice to have if you have limited space for working out. It's adjustable from 5-50 lbs, which is equivalent to 20 sets of dumbbells. The ability to increase or decrease weight using your voice can be useful. If you don't want to use Alexa, you can also use the knob on the tray.
It may be expensive at $429, but we don't think is overly expensive considering there are worst things you can buy at that price. However, it's not quite necessary and may not be ideal if you want something that is sure to last a long time.
For $100 less, you can get an adjustable dumbbell without Alexa and without motors from NordicTrack though they may be slower to change weight. However, since there are no motors, the low tech option is less likely to break and likely to last longer.
