Quick Introduction

Value, value, value! Triple V mates, the NordicTrack C 700 is all about Value for your hard-earned pounds. This is one of the lowest (if not the lowest) entry points into the wonderful fitness world of NordicTrack, with tons of features that make it a very well-equipped model.

  • Multi-Window LED Display

While advanced NordicTrack treadmills are known for their luxurious screen sizes, it would be wrong to compare them to the  NordicTrack C 700 at its price point. This one does offer an LED display for your workout stats, so it’s functional enough.

  • iFit Bluetooth Compatibility + Free 1-Year Membership

We are big fans of the integration with iFit, which makes workouts much more challenging, and most importantly, fun! Hook the treadmill up with the app via Bluetooth from your device. Get access to new workouts consistently, track your stats and all those stones you’re dropping, and make use of Google Maps to do a route through Oxford Street, or the highlands of Scotland! Infinite combinations will keep your workouts from getting old! The good news is that you can enjoy free iFit membership during the first year of purchase, after providing your credit card details.

  • 2.75 CHP Motor

The C 700 also comes with a 2.75 CHP self-cooling motor that is whisper-quiet. While it’s not made to support extended running sessions, it can be a good option for casual home use. If you or other treadmill users are on the heavier side, however, the motor power may not be enough. To avoid risking early motor burnout, we recommend getting a treadmill with a stronger motor for heavy use. 

  • SpaceSaver Design

All these features and the treadmill still folds – the SpaceSaver design is sure to save room at home. Put it out of sight until the next workout by pushing up the running deck. 

  • Speed, Speed, Speed

While this machine gets up to 20 km/h, take care not to overdo high-speed running on this one. 2.75 CHP is good enough for jogging, but not so much for running!

  • Up to 10% Incline

With the 20 workout programs and iFit compatibility, the options are endless, but these would be incomplete without the ability to incline. With 0% to +10% incline, there are a variety of workouts at your disposal with the C 700!

  • Flexselect™ Cushioning

Some of our team members suffer from bad joints, especially weak knees from all that football and rugby, so we particularly were fans of this feature. To increase the cushioning and reduce the impact, a half turn delivers your desired results. Those who prefer a firmer surface can make another half-turn on the knob and get a deck that feels like you’re running on the road.

  • Heart-rate Monitoring

This feature will keep you in the zone!  The heart rate monitors on the C 700 are located on the handholds of the treadmill. 

Positives

  • Multi-window LED display
  • iFit compatibility with a free 1-year membership 
  • Flexselect™ cushioning
  • Autobreeze™ workout fans
  • 20 workout programs
  • Speeds up to 20km/h
  • 0% to +10% incline
  • Convenient folding option
  • EKG handlebars
  • BLE chest strap compatibility
  • Dual 2-inch speakers
  • NordicTrack quality, with a stellar warranty

Negatives

  • Assembly may be a tad bit challenging for some
  • The track length may be too short for some individuals. However, through our testing, we thought it was sufficient
  • The customer support experience has been mixed

Warranty Summary

The NordicTrack C 700 comes with:

  • 10-year motor warranty
  • 2 year parts + labour warranty
  • Lifetime frame warranty

Bottom Line

The NordicTrack C 700 is good as a budget treadmill for casual use, but there are many better options if you need a machine for serious running. Overall, the combination of features is good for the price, although it might seem unimpressive due to the lack of innovation. For the current price, you will get a treadmill that has all the basics covered like speed, incline, and display, with a few extra features too. These include 20 pre-set workouts, a free year of iFit Bluetooth, an autobreeze workout fan, dual 2-inch speakers, BLE chest strap compatibility, compact storage, and more perks.
