The NordicTrack C 1650 is a popular treadmill in the value C Series, offering a lot of great features at a very affordable price. It was recently redesigned to include a new 10" color touch screen display with the popular iFit technology incorporated, among other refinements.
The C 1650 has a powerful 3.5 CHP motor, something you don't typically find at this price range. You can choose from a firm or a cushioned deck with FlexSelect cushioning. It folds easily and quickly with SpaceSaver design. Your speed and incline can easily be adjusted with OneTouch controls.
Let's take a look at some of the top specs....
The NordicTrack C 1650 treadmill has always received great reviews from experts as well as customers, as it is very hard to beat given the price tag (Typically under $1400 on sale). The new redesign has made it even more appealing.
There's really nothing missing here, as you get a real runner's treadmill with a generous sized belt, strong motor, up to a 12% incline, and up to 12 mph speed which is ample for even the most serious runners.
The machine comes with a large amount of workouts designed by a personal trainer, a total of 34 (a lot more than the base C 700 model) and even more available workouts with iFit, a unique program that allows you to track your workouts, run anywhere in the world via Google maps and a host of other great features. Note that a subscription is required, but it's only about $15 a month and well worth it.
The C 1650 is also web-enabled and iPod compatible, so you can literally do anything you would ever want to do while you work out...surf the web, watch movies, post to your social pages, read a book, listen to music...the possiblities are endless and this makes your workouts much more enjoyable.
It has a very nice 10" full color touch screen. If you want to save a few hundred you can opt for the C 990 model which has a 7" screen and a slightly less powerful motor. Otherwise the two treadmills are quite similar.
Some other nice touches: heart rate monitoring built into the handlebars, space saving design for easy storage, an accessory tray, cooling fans and an adjustable tablet holder.
Our NordicTrack C 1650 reviews have always been positive. We love the fact that the company gives you so much and it doesn't break the bank. Usually when you get all these features (and it doesn't happen often) you're paying $2500 and up. This is about half that price.
We like the new 10" touch screen and with the tablet holder you don't have to block your workout stats to use your iPad. Everything is right in front of you and easy to view and access.
It also comes with a very strong warranty not found on other models, so that's a good sign and will give you peace of mind.
All in all, if you're looking for a treadmill under $1500, you can't do much better than the C 1650.
