HealthRider H95t Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
A great looking treadmill that is feature rich and has a great finished look. It is near the top of the list for treadmills under $1000.
If you can get over the fact that some of their "features" like heart rate simply don't work, you can realize that with what you save, you can buy a whole bunch of heart rate monitors to use with it.
The HealthRider H95t is not without its flaws, but at $999, it's truly a great value. It is packed with features, but some of them do not work correctly. Still, you save a ton of money with this treadmill, and it looks fantastic. The biggest concern for this machine is the lack of coverage the warranty offers.
The walking area of this model is a good size. The belt measures in at 20" x 60", which is the standard size for walking belts on many of today's treadmills. This should provide plenty of room for larger users to run on comfortably.
An impressive motor powers this machine. Only a select few treadmills that sell for less than $1,000 can offer greater power producing capabilities, and many models that cost several hundred dollars more than this one use an inferior motor. Speeds of up to 12 mph are attainable, so even experienced runners should have no problem challenging themselves.
A nice cushioning system comes on this model. SoftTrack Cushioning is used to reduce the impact that running has on your joints and back. The vast majority of treadmills selling for $1,000 and under have running surfaces that are less forgiving and durable, but if you know where to look, you can find a few that offer better cushioning.
As far as projected reliability is concerned, this machine is great. The life expectancy of this treadmill competes with models that cost several hundred dollars more. The quality of parts used is impressive in this price range.
The warranty on the HealthRider H95t is pathetic. Parts and labor are covered for 1 year, while the motor and frame are covered for life. It's disappointing to see such a durable treadmill accompanied by a weak warranty. This is the only area where this model falls short.
