Horizon T202 Overview

One step up from the Horizon T101, this treadmill is one of the best treadmills for its price. The value you get from this treadmill is arguably much more than it costs, making it a very sound investment for beginners and experienced runners alike. With good functionality, impressive display features, and an easy-to-use platform, this treadmill is one you won’t regret purchasing. When you’re using it, it will offer you a smooth ride, multiple workout programs to follow, goal tracking assistance, and more; when you’re not using it, it folds up easily to take up less space and can be easily transported.

Ergonomics

The Horizon T202 comes with PerfectFLEX Plus cushioning that provides comfort and support that reduces the strain on your joints as you run. With a relatively large running area (20” x 60”), you have the freedom to take longer strides and perform other treadmill workouts as well. The 1.4 mm 1-ply belt is not ideal, as it is thin, does not offer much support, and wears out faster than thicker treadmill belts, but the Horizon T202 is still a good option if you’re in the market for a good treadmill at a low price.

  • 20″ x 60″ running surface
  • Quiet, long-lasting motor
  • 1-ply belt
  • 12% incline

Display and Digital Features

This treadmill offers a surprisingly good selection of digital features for its price. In addition to the 12 built-in programs that allow you to reach time, distance, or calorie goals, perhaps the most impressive feature is the Advanced Goal Center that allows you to chart your exercises up to 31 days at a time. That feature enables you to track your progress and focus on long-term fitness goals, which is great for beginners and advanced runners alike. It also comes with Bluetooth speakers so you can play music from any Bluetooth-compatible device that you have on hand.
