NordicTrack and Sole are both leading fitness brands in the treadmill arena, so either of these models would be a best buy. The Sole F80 does lack an advanced entertainment options, a decline option, and has a slightly less powerful motor. For some people this may not be a huge issue. NordicTrack’s Commercial 1750 has all of the entertainment bells and whistles on their more advanced console, which also includes an impressive 38 workout programs and iFit® technology, but is more expensive. The bottom line: if you are looking for more by way of the console and entertainment package, we suggest the NordicTrack Commercial 1750. However, if you aren’t interested in too many bells and whistles, the Sole F80 is an excellent choice as well.
