Although both models have identical belt sizes of 20″ x 60″ and a maximum speed of 12mph, the C1630 Pro still earns additional points by having a decline function which you rarely see on treadmills at this price.

Main advantages of the more expensive C1630 Pro are the following- stronger motor, a decline function, 2 additional programs, a slightly bigger console display, and longer warranties. For us, here’s the bottom line – You get decent treadmill features for a sub- treadmill if you purchase the C970 Pro. However, if you can afford to splurge some more and if you’re more serious about your training, then you can opt to choose the upgraded C1630 Pro for your home treadmill. What Makes The Nordictrack C1630 Pro Worth Buying? -This unit’s powerful 3.25 HP motor and its tread belt size of 20″ x60″ give it an edge over the other models in the same price category. – You won’t find many treadmills offering a decline feature, especially not at this price. The -3% decline option helps simulate running downhill which adds variation to your workout. -A wireless chest strap is also an amenity that is not expected for sub- treadmills. You’ll benefit a lot from this feature since it provides more accurate heart rate monitoring feedback during workouts. – As far as bells and whistles are concerned, this model has a cooling fan, an iPod-compatible audio port, quick keys and Quadflex cushioning. Added together, these features help make your workouts more enjoyable and comfortable. What Makes The Nordictrack C1630 Pro NOT Worth Buying? – 375-pound user weight capacity is not supported by credible machine weight information. So we’re a little doubtful about this unit’s stability especially for users who are on the heavy side. – Good news is that this unit is iFit enabled. However, before you can enjoy the benefits of this feature you would still need to purchase an iFit membership.
