Nautilus Fitness is a brand under Nautilus, Inc., a corporation that also owns Bowflex and Schwinn. It is currently the second largest exercise equipment manufacturer in North America. The biggest is ICON Fitness, makers of NordicTrack, ProForm, Healthrider and other popular brands.
Nautilus started promoting their treadmills for home use several years ago and they currently have three models in their lineup: T614, T616 and T618.
All three have some nice features including a wide array of workout programs, good cushioning and incline capability. However, poor warranties, even on the top of the line T618, keep them from being a top recommendation.
Still, they remain quite popular due to the extras that the company packs in. Let’s take a look at the three models…
Nautilus Treadmill Reviews – A Look at the Models
The entry-level T614 model in the series has a 20″ x 55″ deck, 2.75 CHP motor, up to 12 mph speed, up to 12% incline and 22 built in workout programs.
It comes with SoftDrop folding, contact and wireless heart rate, a 5.5″ blue backlit LCD display and a 300 lb. maximum user weight capacity.
The mid-range T616 treadmill gives you a bit more than the T614, with a longer 20″ x 60″ deck, stronger 3.0 CHP motor, up to 15% incline, and 26 built in workout programs.
It adds a free wireless heart rate chest strap, two LCD displays and Bluetooth workout tracking and fitness app syncing.
The top of the line T618 amps it up even more, with a 3.5 CHP motor, incline/speed control in the handrails, advanced Rebound cushioning, a 350 lb. max weight capacity and a stronger warranty than you get on the T614 and T616.
