It’s nice to be in the park with paths lined with oak and maple trees. You can savor the wind as it blows in your cheeks, it’s quite invigorating.
But not all of us have the luxury of time to take our morning run outside every day. Albeit that limitation, you can still accomplish your running schedule in the comfort of your own home.
Thus you need a reliable treadmill for home use, and Nordictrack has been manufacturing high-quality units for decades. Let’s see what differentiates 1750 from the 2450. Either one can be a better choice for your needs, so stay tuned.
Commercial 1750 vs 2450
These two bad boys came from the same series, so they have the same vibe. But there are distinct differences in some of the features, so let’s dive into each one.
2450 is wider
But if you closely check the dimensions of each, you can see that the 2450 is bigger. The running deck is lastly roomier. So this can give more ample space for those who are wider and taller. So if you have longer strides, you might find 2450 more amenable for a challenging run. The 1750 may come off too short for you.
Also, the screen display of the 2450 is also bigger, it measures 22 inches while the 1750 has a 14-inch display.
2450 has more comprehensive fitness programs
Both NordicTrack treadmills will indulge you with a sub-based fitness program. For those who want a more personalized training program, this comes in very handy.
This also gives runners access to virtual routes. So even if you are in New York, you can be running in Milan or Paris. This makes the experiences more immersive so you will not get bored and feel confined in the four corners of your living room. And if you live amid lush greenery, all you need to do is open the windows so you can still feel the cool breeze brushing against your cheeks as you run on the treadmill.
But one is more indulgent, the 2450 offers longer subs. You get to enjoy better programs for two years compared to the one-year sub offer by 1750.
Whatever your fitness level is, whether you’re a beginner or a more advanced runner, there’s something that will challenge you. Both treadmills are equipped with a range of programs that can help you level up.
2450 has this runner flex cushioning. This allows the runner to toggle to a softer deck should you need to switch to a lower-impact run. If you have knee issues, we highly recommend this model.
The 2450 has more immersive sounds
Great sounds can help you make your running experience more immersive. So if you want more life to your music, 2450 will indulge you. It is equipped with more powerful speakers compared to the 1750.
The 2450 has a more robust motor
The 2450 runs on a 3.6 HP motor while the 1750 has a 2.5 HP motor. This may seem like a small difference. But if you need a treadmill that you can use every single day at faster speeds, you’ll need one with a stronger and more resilient motor. The slight increase in power can still mean a lot when it comes to the longevity of the unit. And if you train for competitive events, then the 2450 is a more robust option..
So is the upgraded 2450 better than 1750?
With the more upgraded features, the 2450 seems like a steal ei? Well, generally speaking, it is. But the slight price difference can also mean a lot to some people, so there are circumstances where 1750 can still be a better option for you.For instance, a bigger screen makes up for a more immersive experience right? It has more robust images on the screen and you’ll be able to hover through the iFit programming with ease.
This is ideal if you’re doing off-treadmill workouts. Say for example, if you’re doing yoga then the larger screen will help you see the programs better since you’re a bit far from the unit.
But if you are listening to podcasts or music, then a larger screen will not really be much of a benefit to you.
And here’s that but. A larger screen may also make the unit more wobbly and shaky. So if you are sprint running, then 1750 can provide a more stable base with its smaller screen.
Secondly, you have to consider the size of the unit, especially if you have a smaller space. With the 2450 having a wider running deck, it is an inch longer and wider than the 1750.
These units are both foldable, but the smaller treadmill may be a better option if you have a very small storage space.
Is the newer model always better?
There are considerable differences that can either make or break your running routines.
The 2450 overall is a more upgraded treadmill. It has a bigger and wider screen and running deck, a better sound system, a longer subscription to a personalized fitness app, and a tad more powerful motor. But what makes it more immersive can also make the unit a bit shaky. The bigger screen can wobble if you’re running at a faster speed. So a newer unit is not always the best, you see. While all the upgrades are sweet and nice, it has some drawbacks too.
