The NordicTrack C700 treadmill was redesigned in 2016 and is a very capable machine for entry level or moderate users who like a few extra features to keep boredom at bay. It features iFit Bluetooth capability as well as a new calorie burn meter, among other new amenities.
The C700 has a respectable 20 workout programs designed by personal trainers and a multi window LED console that gives you the standard information, such as time, speed, calories burned, heart rate and distance traveled. It also has a ¼ mile track graphics feature showing your progress.
The specs for the NordicTrack C700 treadmill are:
The NordicTrack C series remains popular due to its attractive pricing, and the new NordicTrack C700 treadmill should continue that tradition. Some people admit that you're getting a good machine and adequate variety of workouts at a great price when you buy it on sale. Although it lists at $1,299 it's usually on sale for $799, which is a bargain for a machine that works this well.
The new IFit Bluetooth technology is a nice addition to the machine that wasn't on the previous version. What this means is that you can connect your iPad, phone or other Bluetooth device and tap into a slew of customized workouts, sharing and tracking capabilities and watch any location unfold in front of you with Google maps. You do need to pay a membership fee to access it, but it's relatively cheap at about $99 per year...well worth it for what you get.
What We Say
The NordicTrack C700 treadmill's 2.75 continuous hp motor is surprisingly durable and carries a lifetime warranty, and much quieter than on previous models. On sale you can get this machine for just under $800 and still get a number of different workout programs, which isn't shabby. The weight limit has dropped slightly to 300 pounds and the warranty is only 1 years for parts and 1 year for labor, but this machine holds its own when compared to others at this price point, particularly since you can subscribe to and use iFit if you like, giving you practically endless workout options for far less than the cost of a gym membership.
