The Reebok V 6.80 treadmill is a good looking machine that offers pre-set aerobic and performance workouts as well as compatibility with iFit workout cards.
The Reebok V 6.80 treadmill console has a Blue Solaris™ LED display with a quarter-mile track indicator, and a training zone intensity meter. The Weight Loss Center uses your weight, time, and calorie-burn goal to create a customized workout. Choose from 250, 300, 350, 400, 500, or 600-calorie workout programs.

UPDATE: The Reebok V6.80 has been discontinued. It has been replaced by newer models. You can get great deals on all of them here:
Under the hood, this budget treadmill has a 2.0 CHP / 2.75 THP motor, which is adequate for walking or light jogging but is actually small for a treadmill in this price range.
The Reebok V 6.80 treadmill offers quick incline and speed buttons so you can punch in new settings without scrolling through options, plus an MP3 plug-in with integrated speakers, a 20" x 55" deck area, and heart rate sensors on the hand grips. The console can also run iFit workout cards (sold separately).
Users report that the Reebok V 6.80 is a noisy treadmill and not of great quality. Even though the weight of the machine is under 200 pounds, it is very difficult to move the deck unit through doorways, or move it anywhere for that matter.
There are also reports that it has some vibration in the console when the user walks. ICON Fitness does not provide good customer service to Reebok customers, and you will be very frustrated trying to get a problem fixed or a part ordered. (ICON charges premium prices for replacement parts!) Even worse, it is a real headache trying to return this monster machine.
When we started the review on the treadmill, it was sale priced at $799. The specs didn’t even match up to the excellent $600 Horizon T101 treadmill, a tough 169-pound unit that is probably the best buy for under $700 this year.
Well, then we saw the Reebok V 6.80 treadmill go back up in price to $1,200 and $1,400 at two different online retailers.
Whoa! It isn’t a bad machine but we would not recommend it at $799, and certainly not at $1,400. There are dozens of machines out there that are better than any of the Reebok treadmills.
UPDATE: Memorial Day Treadmill Sales are on!
