Product Summary

For $1,499, the T618 provides impressive quality features such as the 3.5 horsepower motor, 27 on-board training programs, soft-drop folding technology and Bluetooth connectivity to not only enhance your workout but connect runners with others as you train. The T618 is programmed to integrate with the Explore the World app so you can run through 19 locations with 27 routes alongside people from all over the world in real time. The fully loaded console has two blue backlit DualTrack screens which display the chosen training program including heart rate, weight management and interval. Since there are dual screens, you are able to also view workout metrics even when the media tray is in use. 

With a weight capacity of 350 pounds, the T618 boasts a 20-inch-by-60-inch commercial grade running deck with durable three-ply 2.5 millimeter belt to increase traction and durability. The 2.75-inch crowned rollers also serve to extend belt life and contribute to smoothness and balance. What’s more is the exclusive cushioning system both softens the landing at the front of the deck and propels kick off at the back of the stride to reduce impact.  The ergonomic handrails have integrated incline and speed controls so you can easily adjust the intensity during your workout. 

Equipped with impressive features such Bluetooth technology that connects to Explore the World, folding capabilities and a fully loaded console with 27 interactive programs, the Nautilus T618 is a great value. That said, buyers should beware of reported issues with the deck breaking. And, as always, with the good there is usually some bad. There were several reviews reporting that the base cracks after only several uses. This is where warranty is critical. For the T618 you get 15 years on the frame and motor, five years on parts and two years on labor.
