What’s the difference between a Segway and a Hoverboard?

The Hoverboard Swegway and the Segway are often confused due to their almost identical names and functions. However, they’re actually two very different self-balancing boards. So what’s the difference between a Segway and a Hoverboard?

To help establish the difference between the Segway and Hoverboard, we’ve compiled a list of the main differences:

1. Appearance

The Segway looks bulky with a navigating stick attached to the base of the middle of the board.

However, the Hoverboard Swegway is smaller and doesn’t have a navigating stick. Hoverboards also have a more glossy finish.

2. Navigation

A Segway is controlled by using the navigating stick. You simply move the stick between the legs or, if it’s a hand-controlled board you’ll use the handlebars.

The Segway is a very simple device to navigate.

However, the Hoverboard Swegway on the other hand takes a little bit of practice and skill to master. A person who wishes to ride it must first learn to balance on it.

The Hoverboard or Swegway is navigated by applying the bodyweight, via the feet in the direction the rider wishes to go; if the rider wants to move forward then the rider must apply their body weight in front of the feet and vice versa.

3. Pricing

A Segway can be pricey when compared to a Swegway Hoverboard. Averaging around £1,000 for the Segway Mini, whereas, Swegways and Hoverboards average around £270.
