That being said…
Let’s move ahead and understand whether NordicTrack T 6.5 Si is a good treadmill for you or not.
But, before that, it’s a good idea to know a little about the company behind this treadmill.

Unboxing NordicTrack T 6.5 Si Treadmill
NordicTrack T 6.5 Si is a successor of Nordictrack T 6.5 S (now discontinued). The treadmill arrived in a very well packed condition. Make sure that you have got some helping hands to get it inside your best location in the house. Yes! it’s heavy.
This treadmill comes almost disassembled. It can take one or more than one hour to assemble all the pieces together, along with the wires and connectors. But, don’t get intimated. The detailed instructions provided by NordicTrack makes the assembly process quite easier.
Overall Build and Quality
NordicTrack T series T6.5 Si is a budget-friendly but steady treadmill. If you are searching for a compact, space saver and not so powerful treadmill, this is a definite pick for you. This also aligns perfectly with the joggers and power-walkers. But, this may not be your cup of tea, if you like long-distance running and interval trainings.
Specifications of NordicTrack T series T6.5 Si
Let’s see the specifications of this treadmill
NordicTrack treadmill is 67’’ long, 36” wide and its height is 73”. So you need 67 X 36 = 2412 sq in. of area when using it. As mentioned earlier this treadmill is foldable, so after your workouts, you can fold it and save quite much space. Best part, the hydraulic EasyLift Assist makes its folding super easy.
On-board Weight Capacity
This treadmill can handle upto 300 pounds, which is quite good, we think. But, if you weigh more than 300 pounds or even come in near periphery to that weight, you should see other treadmills. For us, this works like a charm.
This treadmill is definitely not for tall ones. The track is 20” X 55”, which means it is smaller than most other treadmills out there. This treadmill won’t give you any extra room if you find yourself in the taller segment. For others, this much of walking, jogging area works fine.
The motor is not as powerful as others’ in the price segment. It has a 2.6 CHP DurXCommercial plus motor. But it’s perfect for cardio, fast-walking and jogging. We have to take care of when we decide for a long-running with this treadmill. But, this treadmill compensates for its not so powerful motor with other specs and features.
Speed & Inclination
With not-so-powerful motor, this treadmill can go upto 10 mph speed. Not bad, with this budget friendly treadmill, ha. For inclination, it can climb upto 10 per cent. Yes, that’s less but still a decent figure, if you are a walker or a jogger.
Features of NordicTrack T series T6.5 Si
So far so good. Now let’s see what features this treadmill offers.
The display is a new addition to this treadmill as compared to its predecessor T6.5 S. This treadmill has a 10-inch HD touch screen display. Within the same price segment, we didn’t find such a display with other treadmills. With this display, you can be in sync with the iFit workouts. We can also pre-program a workout and monitor all our stats with this display. This HD touch screen display is definitely a value-addition for this treadmill.
NordicTrack T series T6.5Si provides FlexSelect cushioning. When this feature is turned ON, we get extra cushioning for our joints, with lower impact workout. Yes, sometimes we actually turn it ON and it feels quite good. When this feature is turned OFF, you can get the feel of road-running.
If you like running along with your favourite music, this treadmill has an aux port with two in-built speakers.
Heart Rate Monitor
Monitoring your heart rate is a good habit during workouts. And we do it several times in-between the sessions. This treadmill is equipped with CardioGrip TM sensors. To check our heart rate stat, all we need to do is grab the handlebars. And our heart rate is displayed on the HD screen. It’s just that easy.
Yes, this treadmill can also pair your handset through bluetooth and you can enjoy your favourite music without using the aux cable.
This treadmill has lots of space to accommodate all your necessary stuff. It has two compartments as cup holders (or some other stuff) and one tablet shelf. In case you would like to watch your favourite movie/TV shows during the workout, you can place your tablet as well.
You can’t start operating this treadmill, without subscribing to the 1 year trial of iFit. Yes, the treadmill doesn’t operate, if you haven’t subscribed to the iFit. Yes! you can’t bypass the option to subscribe to iFit. Initially, we saw the mandatory subscription as a pain but once we went through the training sessions, we felt awesome.
iFit has live and on-demand subscriptions. What amazed us was that when we chose a class on iFit, the speed and inclination was set automatically throughout the class, as set by the trainer. It also has google maps. You can choose to walk and run around the world and the incline is set automatically as per the terrain of that area.
Yes, we are going to continue our iFit subscription after our 1-year trial subscription is over.BUY ON AMAZON
