The Omnidesk Embrace Pro is a great chair if you prefer an open mesh design, and not the popular high-back gaming type. It's nice to sit, and the mesh keeps you cool. While it does have the basic ergonomic stuff, it lacks certain things that elevate it into a really great chair.
- 12-points ergonomic adjustment
- Suitable for 150-190cm, and less than 136kg
- 3-year warranty, additional 3 years via warranty redemption program
- Mesh or cushion seat
That's not to say the Embrace Pro is lacking. It has the standard ergonomic features, which you can adjust to your heart's content. You can adjust the headrest by 45 degrees (but not back and forth), as well as tension controls for the back of the chair. While you can't recline all the way down, you can get to a comfortable sleeping position. The armrests go up and down, back and forth, and can be twisted. The standard features are there, too. You can adjust the height, and lock in the tilt.
Compared with the ErgoTune Supreme V3, though, the Embrace Pro feels a bit basic. Don't get me wrong, it's not like the Pro is a bad chair, but the Supreme V3's TriTune Enhanced 3D headrest can move back and forth too, which allows for a more comfortable experience. The lumbar support is separate and adjustable, too. The backrest can also adjust up and down for a better fit. However, the armrests are where the Embrace Pro is better.
It's also very easy to reach the levers on the Embrace Pro. I had no issues moving my hand down to adjust the height or tilt lock. I've been testing the Embrace Pro for three weeks now, and it's been comfortable despite the recent warm weather. If you prefer a non-mesh setup for your seat base, the Embrace Pro also comes with a cushion base. I did not test this version, but I expect a similar level of comfort, though the cushion will probably not feel as cool as the mesh version.
At S$549 or less, depending on the discount, the Omnidesk Embrace Pro is competitively priced. It has all the basic ergonomic features you'll need in a chair. Whether you're gaming or working, it's comfortable, even for long periods. If you want more, consider the ErgoTune mesh chair instead. Get the Embrace Pro from Omnidesk, Shopee, or Lazada. I've seen it go as low as S$452.
