If budget is your primary concern, then another brand like Weslo might be more appealing to you. These machines are less expensive than the NordicTrack models (but they will also probably not last as long).
The NordicTrack T6.5 S and T6.5 Si share the same design with a little more cushioning on the latter model making it softer to use. Their consoles are similar as well, but there are a few key differences that should be pointed out:
The console of the T6.5 S is smaller than both models due to its lower price point. The small display isn’t going to have much in terms of aesthetics because it doesn’t offer much to look at other than time, speed, distance and calories burned as well as two workout buttons (intervals & manual). The motor size is 2.25 CHP which is less efficient than the 3 CHP on both models which means it will struggle to generate the same amount of power. The T6.5 S doesn’t come with a fan or USB charging port but does include 16 resistance levels which makes it slightly less forgiving than the T 6.5 Si when you start pushing yourself harder and faster (not that either model wasn’t any good in this department).
The console has an interactive LCD display and easy to use profile selector, 22 workouts including heart rate control, spot training and custom programs; iFit enabled through Android device app; High-speed motor; 10% incline; built-in cooling fan; 2 liters water bottle holder & 2 speakers with MP3 compatibility. 20″ x 60″ running belt .
The NordicTrack T6.5 Si has a larger console with a bigger display that is easy to read and offers a lot more in terms of features including:
- iFit Enabled through Android Device
- 20 workout profiles, including heart rate control, spot training and custom programs
- 22 workouts with touch screen LCD
- Built-in cooling fan & 2 liters water bottle holder & speakers
- 10% incline 20” x 60” running belt.
The NordicTrack T 6.5 S received an overall rating of 3.5 stars from customers on Amazon whereas the T 6.5 Si received 4 stars which makes it worthy of serious consideration if you do have the extra money to spend. There were a number of complaints about the T 6.5 S – the most common being that it was difficult to assemble and warranty issues – whereas there were fewer complaints about the T6.5 Si which seems to be better built than the less expensive model.
Another good point about this treadmill is its versatility — you can use it for walking, jogging or running, plus incline is 10% so even if your fitness levels aren’t quite where you want them to be, it will still suit your level of exercise
The NordicTrack T8 has a different design to other treadmills in regards to its auto incline feature which adjusts between 9% – 15% depending on your speed and workout program. This makes it more functional by allowing you to perform the same workout as you would on a hill which is more challenging (the same can be done with running outside or working out at the gym). The motor size is 2.5 CHP and the tread belt length is 20 x 60 – this treadmill also includes 22 digital workout programs, 10% incline and a cooling fan.
