You’re not alone. These are two very popular mid-range treadmills with some great benefits like full-color web browser, strong motors and extra long running belts.
So what’s the difference and which is best for you? This post will show you the main differences between the Nordictrack 1750 vs 1650. So you can choose the best fit for your home gym:
Nordictrack 1750 vs 1650 Treadmill – Price
So is the extra $200 worth it on the 1750 treadmill? Here are some of the differences between the two treadmills to help you decide:
Nordictrack 1750 vs 1650 – Motor Power
The Nordictrack 1750 has a slightly more powerful motor at 3.6 vs 3.5 HP. So it can handle a bit more use – and abuse. But the difference is really not that great.
Nordictrack 1750 vs 1650 – Incline Options
The Nordictrack 1750 really outshines the 1650 here with a higher incline: 15% vs 12% . Plus the 1750 gives you up to 3% decline. There is no decline on the Nordictrack 1650 treadmill.
So you do get more in terms of crosstraining options on the 1750 treadmill.
Nordictrack 1750 vs 1650 Treadmill – Web Browser
Both treadmills have touch-screen web browsers so you can surf the net as you walk or run. However the interesting thing here is that the 1650 treadmill has a slightly larger web browser window than the 1750 treadmill: 10 inches vs 7 inches.
It’s a bit unusual to find a larger web browser on the less expensive treadmill – but it is a nice surprise.
Nordictrack 1650 vs 1750 Treadmill – Belt Size
The 1750 treadmill comes out ahead again with a wider belt, giving you more room to stretch out and move: 22 inches across vs 20 inches found on the 1650 treadmill.
Nordictrack 1650 vs 1750 – Side Arms
While this may not matter to you, some people do feel a difference. The side arms on the 1750 treadmill are just a bit longer than the 1650 treadmill. (So you may feel that you have more stability and anchoring than on the 1650 treadmill).
Nordictrack 1750 vs 1650 – Extra Cooling Fan
While both treadmills have a lower bar below the console to hold your keys, remote, etc. the Nordictrack 1750 has an added cooling fan on this bar – giving you 3 different cooling fans vs 2 on the 1650 treadmill.
Nordictrack Commercial 1750 vs 1650 – Cushioning
The Cushioning on the 1750 treadmill is slightly more advanced than the 1650 – although they are both adjustable. So you do get a bit more joint protection on the Nordictrack 1750 vs 1650, which would be better for runners.
Both treadmills are very similar in terms of belt length, strong motors and layout – including iFit LIVE compatibility and web browsers.
The Commercial 1750 treadmill gives you a bit more in terms of construction (i.e. stronger motor, more advanced cushioning, incline and decline). It’s also a bit more sleek and finished looking than the 1650 treadmill.
However the Nordictrack 1650 treadmill is no slouch either. You get a strong motor, extra long belt and a larger web browser in the console than the 1750 treadmill. So really it all depends on what you’re looking for.
