The NordicTrack C 990 is the mid-priced model in the very popular C Series, offering a host of great features at an affordable price. It's new for 2016, with a 7" web-enabled touch screen with iFit, a strong motor, special cushioning and entertainment features the brand is known for.
The C 990, like the rest of the series, offers easy folding with SpaceSaver design, so it's easy to store between workouts. It has a powerful 3.0 CHP motor, incline capability up to 12%, adjustable cushioning (soft or hard) and heart rate monitoring right in the handlebars.
Let's take a look at the specs...
NordicTrack has a strong reputation for delivering a feature and capability packed treadmill without the high price tag, and the C 990 is no exception.
Expert reviews have been quite positive, and the improvements have made this machine even better than it was previously.
The C 990 is very similar to the up-level C 1650 model, which offers a more powerful motor and a larger touchscreen. Take a look at that one as well if you're considering the C Series.
Users like the fact that they are fully entertained while they work out, with the option to browse the web, listen to their favorite music or watch movies while they work out.
iFit technology, something only found on ICON Health machines, gives you additional workout options and one of the best features, Google maps that allow you to run anywhere in the world while the machine automatically adjusts its speed and incline.
The C990 allows you to access iFit right on the machine itself, as opposed to on the entry level C700, which requires a tablet or smart phone.
All of this is packed into a space saver design that is ideal for most home environments.
The NordicTrack C 990 treadmill is a great choice for those looking for a value treadmill with tons of great features.
In addition to the numerous entertainment options, you get a nice sized belt with cushioning, heart rate monitoring, incline and a nice number of workouts to choose from. The display is bright and easy to use and you get a tablet holder, strong fan and an accessory tray to hold your water bottle, towel or whatever else you have with you.
This one is a great option, and definitely worth a look in the price category.
