Rating: 92.8/100. The C 700 Treadmill is a lower-level option in NordicTrack’s C Series, an entry-level collection. This model has the track length and horsepower to support long walks but isn’t recommended for runners. Walkers will appreciate the 10 percent incline and integrated support for workouts and entertainment. We caution shoppers about this treadmill’s two-year parts warranty though. With such limited consumer protection, the C 700 isn’t necessarily a bargain despite its $597 online sale price.
- Power incline (Maximum 10%)
- Customizable cushioning (On/off)
- Music friendly (iPod-compatible, 2″ speakers)
- 20 built-in workout apps
- Tablet holder
- SpaceSaver design (Foldable)
- Short warranty on parts (One year)
- Lower quality motor
- Lower quality track
- Slow customer service
While the C 700 Treadmill has a lot to offer, its short warranty and NordicTrack’s reputation for substandard customer support are important drawbacks to consider. For a less risky buy we recommend moving up to NordicTrack’s C 990 or considering a more solid (yet less feature-rich) treadmill brand such as Sole.
The NordicTrack C 700 Treadmill is best suited for power walking and occasional jogging. It has a 2.75 CHP motor and a 20″ x 55″ workout surface. The deck can automatically tilt by up to 10 percent for an added calorie boost and muscle toning. Twenty workouts are included and data are shown on a multi-window LED. Audio entertainment, iFit and the Internet can easily be integrated.
Included with purchase are 20 workout programs. Designed by a pro trainer, these address four treadmill training goals: calorie burn, heart rate control, interval training and speed training. Each program can adjust the C 700 track speed and incline.
For expanded options the NordicTrack C 700 is iFit-enabled and comes with a 1-year Family Membership valued at $397. With an iFit membership, which must be paid separately after the first year, you can access iFit’s unlimited workout library on your own Bluetooth mobile device. Set your tablet computer or smartphone into the secure holder and enjoy iFit’s very personalized training. You can download a customized treadmill workout every day, choose from hundreds of video workouts or chart any route in Google Maps™. The Google Maps™ feature lets the C 700 Treadmill automatically adjust to simulate the landscape of your selected path while also showing a Google Street View.
Data feedback include speed, time, distance and calories. Heart rate monitoring is supported with grips on the handlebars.

The C 700 Treadmill is low-priced and feature-rich. However, it doesn’t carry a long warranty and isn’t constructed for long-term durability. We encourage shoppers to check out the big benefits of spending just $200 more; several $999 treadmills such as the Horizon 7.0AT have earned our enthusiastic reviews.
