In this class of treadmills, you get what you pay for. Forecasting the life span of any treadmill can be difficult, especially in this price range. The Proform City T7 comes in with the lightest weight at this price point. If you are on the thin side, not too tall, and take of care this treadmill it could give you several quality years. The warranty of 1 year for parts and labor is a bit short but standard. The Horizon T-101, our top pick in the Treadmill Doctor 2021 best buy list for this price range, on the other hand, gives you a lifetime warranty on the drive motor. It's usually not a question of if but when you're going to need to call in a claim in this price range. So, these are all things to consider when making your purchase.
The Proform City T7 treadmill is one of the most basic folding treadmills in the Icon line. Its narrowest in class running surface make it ideal for a narrow width below average height individual. It comes equipped with a few features we like at treadmill doctor. And while City T7 is not breaking any barriers it is nonetheless one of the better treadmills in its price range. Consequently, we awarded the Proform City T7 second place for 2021 Best Buy Treadmills in the $400-$699 price range.
The Proform City T7 is 124 pounds, which is light for the class of treadmill, but this allows for easy movement. The narrow running surface leads up to believe it was built for a thin person. This Proform comes equipped with 1 Year of Ifit which is a nice feature if you need the motivation of a personal trainer to get your groove on. We suggest you not get too comfortable with Ifit, because it can be relatively expensive to keep after this first year. This City T7 has both EKG and Polar Telemetry capabilities to measure your heart rate which is not standard at this price point. <br/> Now outside of the Ifit, this treadmill has simple programs. When the included subscription ends you must determine if the simple programs will work for your exercise routine, Even though this treadmill is rated for 300 LBS we are dubious of this claim due to the understated build an underpowered motor. The treadmill's short parts and labor warranty is a bit concerning. Be advised that if you are a runner and above-average weight you could be dealing with Icon's less than stellar warranty and technical support sooner than later.
