This Treadmill Could Be For You If:
- You’re looking for a budget-friendly treadmill under $1,000.
- You’re new to exercising at home and want a simple but high-quality treadmill to get you started.
- You’re looking for a competitive warranty across the board.
- High-quality, durable treadmill basics mean more to you than luxury extras.
The Sole F63 is one of the highest quality, basic folding treadmills under $1,000 on the market. Although it’s the simplest model in Sole’s current lineup, it still bags nearly five stars (4.5 to be exact) in our review.
Recently enhanced, the F63 folding treadmill now features a 60-inch running surface, a 3.0 CHP motor and an upgraded console with 10 training programs. Its powder coated steel frame is built to hold steady at the track’s top speed of 12 mph. The treadmill is equipped with a fan, although it’s not as high-speed as other models. Positioned at the top of the console, the vents can’t be moved downward and this might be inconvenient depending on the user’s height.
Workout progress is shown on a 6.5-inch LCD which can be integrated with the Sole Fitness mobile app for wireless tracking and fitness stats sharing. The app is compatible with both iOS and Android devices, so whatever tech you own, you can view your progress on your mobile in real time. What’s more, the Sole app can communicate with other apps such as FitBit and MyFitnessPal so you can continue using whatever programs you’re familiar with and store all of your workout history in one location. As for extra features, the F63 also includes an integrated tablet holder, Bluetooth audio speakers, and a USB charging port.
The F63’s $999 sale price includes a competitive warranty offering lifetime coverage for the frame and motor; three years for the parts, deck, and electronics; and one year of labor.
What’s New for 2021:
- An integrated tablet holder has been built into the machine’s console. If the 6.5-inch LCD screen isn’t sufficient, runners can always affix a tablet or phone to the console and incorporate any number of apps or streaming services while they run. This opens up the entertainment options considerably.
- The new model also brings Bluetooth Audio Speakers, meaning music or other other sound from streaming devices is much more accessible.
- The new year also brings a USB port to the machine, which is a critical addition to keep devices attached to the tablet holder running during long sessions.
