Nordictrack C1250 or Nordictrack Commercial 2150?
~~Side-By-Side Treadmill Comparison Review~~
Motor: The Commercial 2150 wins this first round with a 3.8HP motor as opposed to the C1250’s 3.5HP. Always remember that a stronger motor means a smoother operation.
Belt Width: It is a tie between the two models as they both feature the standard 20”.
Belt Length: It is another tie between the two models as they have a 60”-long belt each. It should be noted that this is considered to be average for most treadmills and are also ideal for taller than average users.
Preprogrammed Workouts: For more success and fun in working out, variety is important. That is why the Commercial 2150 wins this category with its 36 workouts compared to the C1250’s 26. Both offer are actually above average as the average is 10 to 24 programs.
Notable Features: The Commercial 2150 gets another win as it has more and better features to offer such as a -3# decline, better cushioning, a wireless heart rate monitor as well as bigger rollers.
On the other hand, the C1250 also features an innovative iFit Live technology as well as a 10” touch screen browser which are not usually seen in other treadmills, cooling fan, a SpaceSaver design, built-in sound system and quick speed and incline buttons which can be found and adjusted in the handrail controls.
Parts Warranty: Both models are tied this time with a 5-year parts warranty.
Labor Warranty: It is yet another tie for the C1250 and the Commercial 2150 as they both offer a 2-year labor warranty. So far, 2 years is the longest labor warranty in treadmills.
Machine Weight: When it comes to machine weight, both are tied since they both didn’t indicate their actual weight. This is disappointing since it is also a big factor when consumers are looking to buy a treadmill.
Machine User Weight Capacity: The Commercial 2150 claims to accommodate users who weigh up to 375lbs and the C1250 has a 350-lb weight capacity. However, since both of them did not release any data regarding their actual weight, it cannot be confirmed that the Commercial 2150 wins over its counterpart.
Money Back Guarantee: In this category, the two models are tied with their 30-day money back guarantee.
Conclusion: Although the Commercial 2150 is the newer version and cheaper than the C1250, it has better or more features to offer.
The C1250 may also come with a built-in iFit Live module and a 10” touch screen powered by Android as well as their common features, the Commercial 2150 has a more powerful motor, a rare -3% decline, a wireless heart rate monitor and a more durable and a bigger 3-inch rollers.
There is a $1200 price difference between the two but if you can spare the extra expense, you get to have more features and more value for your money. This is why we are recommending the Commercial 2150 over the C1250.
