NordicTrack X5i incline treadmill

by Lawrence Mason
(Meridian, MS, USA)

I bought a NordicTrack X5i incline treadmill from the company two weeks ago. It was touted as having the iFit live module whereby the treadmill interacts with a wireless network tracking weight, diet, exercise regimens, etc. even linking with Google maps so that one can simulate trails and routes from anywhere in the world. Unfortunately, NordicTrack neglected to mention on the website that the firmware is not yet available for this model and there is no tentative date for the firmware release. I am therefore stuck with a $1700 treadmill that will not do as promised. I emailed the company and got the company line about the programmers working on the problem and that I wouldn't be charged for the service until it is working. I am now relegated to being a beta tester for a product that doesn't work as promised. I would beware of this unit and company for now.

Do not buy the X5i
by: Anonymous

I purchased an X5i and would not recommend the product. The heart rate monitor works so poorly they should not have put it on. I called for warranty service and they read me the owner’s manual where it says the heart monitor only works when you are stationary. On top of this, it is noisy and poorly constructed.
