NordicTrack expanded its treadmill desk lineup for 2016 with a brand new Platinum model. This one includes power adjustable incline and Bluetooth iFit technology for enhanced workouts.
The Treadmill Desk Platinum features a large 40 inch by 18 inch work surface with a mahogany wood grain laminate. It has a 3 window LCD display which shows you all of the relevant workout metrics such as distance, time, incline, calories and speed so you can keep track of your progress.
Let's take a look at the specs...
The NordicTrack Treadmill Desk Platinum has been well received thus far and early reviews are quite positive. While most treadmill desks are very basic, this one has a lot of great features that make it a great option for those who need to get some work done while they workout.
The tread belt is very generously sized at 22" x 60", an upgrade from the base model, so if you want to walk or jump up to the top speed of 8mph there is plenty of room to work out. The deck is well cushioned and you can raise or lower the large desk surface to achieve the perfect height for your needs.
The 3.0 CHP motor is strong and quiet so you can work without any distracting loud noises, even at the higher speed levels. For reference the motor on the base model is 2.6 CHP.
NordicTrack includes iFit Bluetooth capability on this one, which means you can have access to a number of specially designed workout programs, tracking and sharing, as well as Google maps which enable you to pick any location in the world and watch the trail unfold in front of you while you work out. All you need is your tablet or smartphone to utilize this feature, which does require a yearly membership.
Other nice features on the Platinum include a power adjustable 10% incline and the ability to use it sitting or standing with easy folding capability. They also upped the parts warranty to 2 years from one on the base model
If you need to get some work done while you work out, the NordicTrack Treadmill Desk Platinum is a good choice. It's only about $1599 on sale and comes with a very strong motor and a generously sized runner's deck.
You also have the ability to use it sitting or standing, and it's easy to adjust to any height you'd like. It also has power incline that you definitely don't find very often on a desk treadmill.
Lastly, you can take a break from your workout and tap into all of the great features of iFit, which breaks the monotony of ordinary workouts.
This one is definitely worth looking into if you're interested in a treadmill desk.
