How long will the Horizon T202 last?
The Horizon T202 treadmill can hold max users up to 325 lbs. and has an assembled weight of 187 lbs. which is quite sturdy for a folding treadmill. It has a one-step hydraulic feature for optimal folding capability and is covered by a generous lifetime warranty on both the frame and motor. The warranty also covers 1 year on parts and 1 year on labor. It is a quality treadmill designed for light to moderate use and will last for quite a few years with the proper care and maintenance.
The Horizon T202 treadmill is an upgrade from the T101 and is a decent choice for those beginning or continuing their fitness journey and has quality features for less than $1000. It is better suited for walkers and joggers and comes with generous frame and motor warranties that are backed by a reputable company. The T202 is compatible with streaming entertainment services like Hulu, Spotify, YouTube, and Netflix and comes with a downloadable sports app allowing interface between a user’s personal device and the machine. It is an optimal machine for those looking to bring their fitness routine indoors.
The Horizon T202 treadmill has been upgraded with a 2.75 CHP motor, which while not a commercial grade, still offers continuous staying power for various workout loads. Flat out running is not compatible with this motor so if you need to run, continue shopping. On the other hand, walkers and joggers alike will delight in the roomy 20” x 60” running area which gives those with longer legs the room to stretch out without worries of falling off the edges. Horizon continues the upgrade of the T202 with a higher speed capacity of 12 MPH and a higher incline range of 12%. Both help intensify workouts, increase calorie burning, and allows users to focus on lower body fitness. There is also a 3-zone cushioning system to lower the impact of strides as you exercise to your heart’s content. The Horizon T202 comes with a backlit LCD screen and 3 display windows. It holds 5 built in programs and users’ heartrates are monitored through handy contact grips. Other standard features that seem trivial until they are not available include an audio jack, Bluetooth speakers, tablet rack, water bottle holder and fan. All these features prove this is a worthy competitor in the less than $1000 price range for those looking for a durable, budget friendly machine.

While it is not a leading treadmill in its price class, the Horizon T202 is a decent folding treadmill model that will last moderate workout fans many years of use. It is backed by generous warranties, and despite the simplistic nature of its console, the ability to stream and to connect to the outside world is imperative to many individuals who want to work out and be entertained at the same time. With many models being offered in the less than $1000 range it is imperative you figure out what features you need to make your workout the best for you, as other competitors carry touchscreen and decline options that are not available in the T202.
