BEST BUYS UNDER $399

Runner Ups

Winner

Gold's Gym Trainer 420

Our best buy winner in the $399 and under range! If the Gremlins from the 80's Spielberg film were a treadmill, it would be the Trainer 420. They look great but you better not let them eat too late!

2ND

Merit 715T Plus

Very basic and only for use by walkers. With that said, for $399, this is one of the best treadmills on the market in the $399 and below price range.

Editor's Note: It is our policy of intentionally erring on the side of caution concerning reliability ratings so a key component in the rating still will be a heavy factor in the final score and these ratings were given with caution in mind. Once an treadmill wins a best buy in its price range, it is ineligible for a best buy rating in another category.
