The Nautilus T616 2018 and T616 2014 are both high-quality treadmills with plenty of features to keep your workouts varied and motivating.

The Nautilus T616 2018 and the T616 2014 Treadmills are virtually the same machines but with a few minor exceptions as follows:

·         The 2018 model of the Nautilus T616 has a slightly redesigned console (see images).
·         The 2018 model of the Nautilus T616 has the addition of a useful accessories storage rack.
·         The 2018 model of the Nautilus T616 is finished in an all-black color (compared to the grey/silver color of the 2014 model).

Apart from the above points, the Nautilus T616 2018 and T616 2014 Treadmills are identical, offering the same amount of programs (26), speed range (0-12 mph) and motorized incline range (0-15%).

Both the Nautilus T616 2018 and 2014 treadmills utilize a powerful 3.0 chp motor and large 2.5” crowned rollers that ensure smooth and quiet operation whether you’re using the treadmill for walking, jogging or running.

Both the 2018 and 2014 T616 treadmills have a generous sized running belt of 60” long by 20” wide, along with a StrikeZone cushioning system that helps to reduce the impact of your workout on your joints.

Although the consoles on the Nautilus T616 2018 and 2014 treadmills vary slightly in design, they are both straightforward to use and incorporate the same high-end features, including Bluetooth connectivity, Dual Track (2 screens) blue backlit LCD display, 4 user profiles, USB charging port, media shelf, sound system (dual speakers with MP3 input), and 3-speed cooling fan.

The 26 programs offered by both Nautilus T616 treadmills include workouts for training, weight management, heart health, intervals, quick goal, custom-designed and manual program.  There are convenient Quick Access buttons located on the treadmill handrails for quickly and easily changing the speed and incline range.

Up to 13 different workout stats are displayed on the console’s easy-to-view high-resolution screens to help keep you motivated.  Up to 4 different people can use the treadmill on a regular basis and keep track of their workout stats and you can also transfer your stats via Bluetooth connectivity to online fitness tracking apps such as Nautilus Connect, Nautilus Trainer and My Fitness Pal.

Both the Nautilus T616 2018 and 2014 Treadmills offer contact pulse and telemetry heart-rate monitoring so you can ensure you stay within your target heart-rate zone as you exercise.

Both T616 treadmills also feature a convenient and easy to operate SoftDrop folding deck system that enables the deck to fold upwards to save space when not in use.  Both treadmills also come with front-mounted transport wheels for easy relocation.

For peace of mind and to reflect the manufacturer’s confidence in the durability of their treadmills, the Nautilus T616 2018 and 2014 come with a 10 year warranty on frame/motor and 2 years on mechanical/electronics.  There is however a difference in the labor warranty offered on the 2 treadmills with the 2018 model having a 1 year warranty while the 2014 model offers just 90 days on labor.

Summary:

The Nautilus T616 2018 and 2014 Treadmills offer great value for money with their high-quality build and host of features not typically found on treadmills at these competitive price-points.
I think the all-black finish of the 2018 model gives the treadmill a sleeker-look but really the difference in the color of each treadmill comes down to personal taste!  The addition of an accessories storage rack on the 2018 model is useful and the slightly redesigned console has a few larger buttons that make it easier to use.  If you’re not bothered about these little differences, then you may still be able to pick up the 2014 T616 treadmill at a bargain price while it’s still available!



N.B.  It’s always advisable to consult your doctor or health care professional before undertaking any new exercise regime.
