The Freemotion 770 Interactive Treadmill
Hello Hello Hello! I’ve been wanting to crack open the Freemotion 770 Interactive Treadmill for you guys. There are a lot of great things thrown into this guy, so if you’re looking for a treadmill in the upper $1000s range, then listen up, this will be good.
This treadmill has a lot of bonus features, as well as great specs on its motor, rollers, belt, frame, etc. Freemotion doesn’t stand out much in regards to quality. They’re about average in their treadmills’ durability and performance. However, with what they give in power, stability, functionality, features, comfort, and interactivity, they do stand out. This treadmill in particular is the perfect example of what a full-fledged treadmill should have.
The 770 interactive has a slick design with a very advanced console. We love the 10″ touch-screen display with the Android web browser. We look forward to the day that all treadmills have these. This is different than built-in TVs which are usually a bad idea. Treadmill TVs usually break down with all the beating they get from the treadmill, and they usually cost a fortune to fix. Look for these built-in displays rather than TVs. The console also has a Scrolling CrossTrainer Display to graphically illustrate your workout, it has an 8″ cooling fan, a built in Ipod connection, built-in speakers, 28 preprogrammed workout apps, and built-in Ifit live.They all seem to work too. All this together makes the console about as good as it gets on a treadmill.
The Motor is a 3.5 CHP. It feels like it may be a bit less than that in reality, but it’s close. That’s enough power to safely power any size runner at any speed. The full-sized 20″ x 60″ treadbelt, the 2.5″ precision rollers, and the 350lb weight capacity make this a sturdy treadmill that you won’t have to worry about breaking. The 12MPH and 15% Incline work well.
Freemotion does offer great warranties on their treadmills. This one has a Lifetime warranty on the Frame and Motor, a 5 year warranty on the parts, and 2 years for labor.
This with the full-length cushioning, the easy lift assist, the chest strap heart rate monitor, and the other features you’ll get, makes this a good purchase for under $1,900.
Check it out. See you next time.
