NordicTrack C 700 Overview

The NordicTrack C 1650 is a foldable treadmill with 3.5 HP motors. It was originally introduced in 2014, and at the time, was considered one of the top treadmills in that range, with gadgets and features that were unique to it. Since that time, the C 1650 has been upgraded to keep with the times, with a 10 inch screen to keep track of your fitness stats, as well as an iFit coach. The C 1650 is a good buy for its price range, but NordicTrack definitely has better models. In our opinion, though, the C 1650 is the best model within the C series.


The deck on the NordicTrack C 1650 is 60 inches long and 20 inches wide. This provides a considerable amount of room for you to use and function with. The track is roomy, and the deck has on/off cushioning so you can decide which option is more comfortable for you and your stride. It has relatively small rollers, so we would recommend this treadmill for individuals who will be using it mainly for walking, rather than running. If you’re running on the C 1650 multiple times a week, be ready to handle more maintenance on your treadmill than you were probably expecting.

  • 60” x 20” running deck
  • Runner’s FlexSelect cushioning
  • Up to 15% incline

Display and Digital Features

The iFit Coach is one of the top reasons that people go to NordicTrack, as it gives access to an unlimited amount of personalized workouts that can be downloaded, in addition to plenty of user generated content, such as recipes, workouts, and message boards. A few of our absolute favorite features of this treadmill is the 3” speakers(most NordicTrack treadmills come with 2” speakers, for your reference) that are smartphone compatible, as well as the built in AutoBreeze fan that can self-adjust to match the intensity of you workout.

  • 3” speakers
  • iFit Coach console
  • 7” touch screen display
  • Multiple cooling fans
  • CardioGrip heart rate monitor
