With a clean, simple and sleek design, the Horizon Fitness T202 Treadmill is one of the best folding treadmills on the market for its price point. With attributes like integrated Bluetooth speakers, one-touch keys, console fans and an extended 60-inch running deck, Horizon really stands out among competitors. The T202 utilizes a one step hydraulic folding system to easily store your treadmill. Weighing 187 pounds, transporting it for storage is reported to be fairly easy.
The T202 provides five on-board workouts programs and provides basic data on its backlit LCD display: calories, distance, heart rate, incline, speed, and time. It also includes a free app to control your workout and sync fitness data with your favorite fitness apps. Plus, the Bluetooth speakers make it possible to listen to your favorite playlist while working out. The 12 incline and 12 miles per hour max speed also give the T202 an edge, providing users with a wider range of workouts than many other budget treadmills. That said, the 2.75 horsepower motor will not support heavy running.
Where the Horizon T202 falls short is the one-ply, 1.4-millimeter belt, which is not as durable as those seen on other models. However, a three-zone cushion technology makes for a comfortable running surface.
