See what customers who have bought either the Schwinn MY17 870 or Schwinn MY16 830 Treadmills have to say about them:

J.S.:
“We’ve had the Schwinn MY16 830 Treadmill for just under a week so can’t talk about long-term durability but so far our experience has been good.  It took 2 of us around 1 ½ hours to unpackage and assemble it and it was super straightforward.  I’ve used this treadmill 3 times so far. Everything runs smoothly, and I’m still trying out the different pre-set programs.  I love that it has separate user profiles and that you can track your workout info.  There’s plenty of storage for water bottle, remote, mobile/tablet etc.  The heart-rate sensors seem to track pretty close to the stats my HR watch gives.  Obviously, a heart-rate chest-strap is going to be more accurate but this gives you a good idea of where you’re at.  The incline adjustment is super smooth and the program beeps prior to any speed or incline change so you now it’s coming.  Definitely happy with this purchase.”

F.D.:
“The Schwinn MY16 830 arrived quickly and we paid to have it set-up.  The set-up team was great!  The treadmill works perfectly and we couldn’t be happier.”


Alternatively, get the older 2013 models, the Schwinn 870 or Schwinn 870 Treadmills while they’re still available at a low price:
