The C700 by NordicTrack is one of the brand’s treadmills equipped with the iFit console, their latest technology. This means that you can access iFit through a smartphone or tablet, and not require a dedicated monitor. iFit’s customized workouts along with 20 built-in workout apps can adjust the C700’s speed and incline automatically, tilting it upwards approximately 10% and maxing the speed at 10mph. An Mp3 player and speaker are also fixed on to the machine.
However, not everything has improved. The 2016 model of the C700 has a wider but smaller deck (22’ x 55’) and a relatively smaller incline level as compared to earlier versions. In a nutshell, this treadmill is probably more suitable for walkers than for runners. NordicTrack does offer more spacious treadmills which we recommend you check out by clicking here.
Advantages of NordicTrack’s C700 Treadmill:
The revamped model of the NordicTrack C700 comes with 20 pre-loaded workouts, each designed by professional personal trainers. The
incline of the treadmill adjusts automatically according to the workout setting. Users can also download unlimited personalized workouts via an iFit subscription. Because the iFit application is accessed through a smartphone or tablet, there is an integrated tablet stand in the treadmill.
iFit will open new doors for you. Workout downloads, hundreds of HD workout videos, Google StreetView workouts, and virtual races are only some of the benefits.
The incline tilts to a maximum 10%. It either sets according to a selected workout or can be controlled by console buttons. With an incline you will be able to target and tone muscles better and burn calories faster.
Heart Rate Monitoring:
Heart rate/ Pulse sensors are built in the handlebars of the C700 treadmill. Unfortunately, the treadmill does not come with a wireless receiver.
As mentioned before, the C700 has a set of speakers on it for playing mp3s, namely the InterMix Acoustics 2.0 Sound System. iPods and other devices are also compatible.
Long power walks are supported thanks to the 2.75 HP DurX motor on this unit which comes with a 25-year warranty!
To decrease the strain on your joints and simulate road training, the C700 has FlexSelect cushioning.
A small add-on that makes a lot of difference, the AutoBreeze fan’s speed increases as you accelerate! Speed can also be controlled manually.
Less Space Occupied:
The NordicTrack C700 folds easily for storage and doesn’t require any heavy lifting.
Things To Be Mindful Of:
Even though the warranty of the motor is 25 years, the warranty of the treadmill itself is short, just one year for labor and components.
The C700 carries a high price tag of $1299. Better treadmills can be purchased at the same amount or even less. NordicTrack’s C630 has similar specifications and has been on sale at $800. The C990 also offers great value at just under $1000.
2016’s NordicTrack C700 treadmill is essentially for walkers who enjoy a basic power incline and a range of workout apps. The preset workout programs are more than enough and iFit is compatible so that is definitely a plus.
There isn’t anything wrong with the C700, but NordicTrack definitely has much more to offer at a better price in some of their other treadmills.
