Horizon Treo T707 Treadmill Review

The Horizon Treo T707 treadmill packs a lot of features into one machine for a very reasonable price.

It has a heart rate controlled programme to keep you in the ‘fat-burning’ zone as the speed of the belt adjusts to keep your heart beating at its optimum level – obviously this will also get you fitter faster!

This feature is not usually seen in a machine under £650 – the Treo T707 is currently available at just £545

Horizon now have an extensive range of machines on the market and have earnt themselves a good
reputation; the Treo T707, as an entry model to their range, has done much to enhance.
This is an attractive, foldable model with a feel of quality normally associated with a more expensive machine. It’s 1.75hp motor (peak 3.0hp) was relatively quiet and smooth in operation up to its top speed of 10mph.

Our reviewers particularly liked the layout and operation on the console, all felt it was easy to install and get started with. The range of pre-set programmes including hills, endurance challenge, cardio-burn and weight loss combined with a 10% incline and 10mph top speed, should keep most runners happy.

The two year on site parts and labour warranty compares very well with other machines in this price range and is a sign of the manufacturers’ faith in the model.

Available in UK from around £545 from GymWorld.

Review Summary - In Brief

The Horizon Treo T707 is a lot of machine with a reasonable price tag. It represents a good buy for experienced runners on a budget or for those buying their first treadmill. The heart rate control feature really makes this machine stand out from others in this price range. With a 2 year warranty backed up by a reputable manufacturer for quality machines the T707 is a pretty safe buy.
