NordicTrack C 700 Treadmill is the first treadmill to be introduced in the C series. This is treadmill is recommended for regular walkers and joggers only. The main reason why its not recommended for runners is because the dimensions of the tread belt is too small and runners would need more space as their stride is a lot bigger.
This is one of the best NordicTrack’s low priced treadmill and it offers some fascinating features which will be discussed in detail. Before we start, I highly recommend that you take your time in order to view some key specifications listen in the table below.
In this section, we’ll look at all the technology related specifications the C 700 offers such as Display, NordicTrack iFit, Tablet Holder and Sound Systems.
As listen in the table above, NordicTrack provides a Multi-window LED Display with high definition. This LED Display contains all your workout stats like distance covered, calories burned, time and speed. It even shows your heart rate which will be discussed as we move along.
This feature is very common in all the treadmills manufactured by NordicTrack. iFit provides you with HD street views which can be downloaded from Google Maps. When you purchase the C 700, you get the iFit feature but if you want to continue using it, it’ll cost you $9.99 per month. I recommend that you have this as it helps you achieve your workout goals.
If a treadmill doesn’t provide you with a tablet holder, its a shame. NordicTrack has an Integrated Tablet Holder which can hold your tablet. You can now workout and simultaneously watch your favourite TV shows/Movies.
With the help of Auxiliary Music Port, you can connect you aux wire to your mp3/iPod devices and listen to music. Not only that, you also have built in Two 2” Digitally-amplified Speakers which produce top quality music and again you can use any mp3 device or an iPod.
In this segment, we will be focusing on all the engineering aspects of NordicTrack C 700. Some of these include Motor, Incline, Heart Rate Monitor and Balance Rollers.
For a treadmill that costs $799.00, the motor power if quite powerful. The C 700 provides with a 2.75 CHP Motor that allows you to walk/jog smoothly and swiftly. You’ll feel very comfortable on it as motor is well lubricated inside and the parts move continuously with great consistency.
You can increase the gradient up to 10%. Increasing the gradient is much more effective as you can burn more calories. When you download different areas from Google Maps, the treadmill will automatically sync with that particular place and will increase the gradient or remain flat depending on the place you chose.
Heart Rate Monitor
The Heart Rate Monitor enables you to view your heart rate on the display screen. This is something which isn’t accurate. Some treadmills provide you with wireless chest strap which you can wear in order to get accurate reading but this feature is something which lacks on NordicTrack C 700 Treadmill.
The 1.9” Precision-machined and Balanced Non-flex Rollers supports the treadmill from virbrating which in turn cause jerks. This happens when you increase the speed. However, this is something which you don’t have to worry as the Balance Rollers have been well engineered and tested.
This is really important because if the treadmill ain’t comfortable, you won’t feel like working out and you’ll feel very annoyed by the conditions. Therefore, in this portion, I’ll be focusing on Cushioning, Workout Fan and Tread Belt.
Always remember that you’re training because you want to stay fit. In this process, you must not injure yourself and remain this way so that you can move ahead every day. NordicTrack’s special FlexSelect™ Cushioning provides you with soft landing as you land on your heels/toes.
The more you increase your speed, the more the AutoBreeze™ Workout Fan will generate the air. As you jog/run, you’ll feel very comfortable and refreshing because there will be air generated by the Workout Fan. This is actually one of my favourite features.
If you scroll back to the first paragraph of this page, I’ve mentioned that “I recommend this treadmill to regular people who love to walk and jog”. You can even run but it depends on how tall you are. If you’re taller than 5’11 (180.3 cm), you won’t be able to run as the tread belt is 22 inches wide and 55 inches long. If you fall under this category, I’d suggest you leave your question with your height in the comment’s box at the end of this page and I’ll get back to you within 24 hours.
In this part, I’ll be covering two main interesting attributes which are Workout Apps and Folding Deck. Let’s get on with it!
This treadmill has 20 On-Board Workouts which will help you in achieving the body you want. You can choose a wide range of training sessions like Speed training, Weight loss training and High Intensity training. You can save 100’s of dollars on personal trainer. I reckon that you don’t even need one as these workouts have been designed by professional iFit trainers.
This is probably the best feature a treadmill can have. Even if you don’t have space at your home, there’s absolutely nothing to worry about because with the assistance of SpaceSaver® Design with EasyLift™ Assist System, you can fold your treadmill in just a couple of seconds.
All the features which have been explained come under pros or advantages. Every treadmill has its own drawbacks!
Customer Service: The customer service is a bit poor because NordicTrack is a very busy company as it sells its machines almost every single day to different parts of the world. Customers have been complaining that they had to wait for a long time in order for their questions to be answered or for the parts to be replaced.
Warranty: The only factor I don’t really like is the Parts Warranty. If you look at other higher priced treadmills, they offer 2- Year Parts Warranty or higher. This is something which must be improved in the future.
Belt: The belt consists of one layer only! If you use it 6-7 days a week for a year or more, it must be replaced as its not manufactured with good quality. If you can replace it after a year, its absolutely fine.
NoridcTrack C 700 Treadmill is one of the three in the C series. If your willing to spend anywhere between $700 – $900, this one might be the right one for you. If you’re looking another one of a similar type or close to this one, I strongly recommend that you read the NordicTrack T 6.5 S Product Review.
Overall, this treadmill is fantastic for walking and jogging but if you fall in the 6 feet category, you won’t be able to run on this. If you have any questions, please leave them in the comment’s box below and I’ll get back to you within 24 hours.
