I just wanted a decent treadmill that doesn't cost a lot but still feel like good quality. And this seems to be it. It's my first treadmill so I can't compare it to others I may of had but so far it works great. I just do casual walking now but will eventually get to jogging. I don't think the speakers are necessary. A waste of extra costs when most everyone has earbuds that sound better. I personally just watch TV. I also don't like the preprogrammed runs. At least not yet . The speed changes to often and goes to fast for me. There is also no description of what each one does exactly so you know what to expect. Those sudden changes get annoying and I have to constantly reduce the speed back to where I need it. So basically I don't use them. The heart rate bars are ok but I doubt they are accurate. Another gizmo for marketing that is not needed. I don't have a Bluetooth Fitbit so can't comment on that. Overall though this does what I need and not very complex to use if you just want to walk or run at your own pace.
Very poorly engineered device! This is supposed to be a home workout treadmill, but if you have to stop for more than one minute, it wipes out your progress and you have to start over! It’s not like someone else is waiting to use the machine in my house!!! Apparently the people who designed this never had any responsibilities. Also, I am only interested in seeing the distance and speed displays on the device, but every time that you change speed it takes between 3 and 7 key presses to get it back to those displays. This is distracting, aggravating and makes for unsafe treadmill use. A little more quality and a lot less cheesy programming would make for a much better experience.
I really like this treadmill it's quite. There are few quirks I don't like. More like quirks I need to figure out. I wish this treadmill showed Carbohydrates burned. But, really it's a great machine.
Glade we went with the larger treadmill. My wife at 64 yrs can run anytime day or night getting ready for her mini-marathons, 5 & 10 Ks. I at 71 yrs with RA try to walk up to an hour a day holding on to the hand rails. We set it up in the TV room to run/walk while watching our favorite programs..
In the confort of your home, make great workout.
Set up took 3 days; a few hours at a time after work. Once it was set up, it works fine. I've yet to use the preset work outs, but it does what it's supposed to. The heart rate monitor doesn't work right, but that's ok.
This Nordic Track is ideal for my needs. Sturdy, user-friendly, and versatile.
