Ancheer 6200 Treadmill Review
The Ancheer S6200 treadmill is Ancheers attempt to capture the Nordictrack models serious runners market, at a fraction of the cost at around $800… Remember my recommendation would be the Nordictrack C990 at around $1000. But how does this stack up? And is it a more serious option than the Ancheer 8100?? Well, yes, it is a more serious machine, it has a web enabled LCD screen that you can get to play any media you want. Be it video or your favourite music.
Does it offer the same experience as the Nordictrack? No. Not a chance. But does it serve a purpose? That is a RESOUNDING YES! You see, the Nordictrack is for those who want to run almost completely realistically, but in the comfort of their own home. This however serves a completely different market. With the WiFi enabled LCD touch screen, you can multi-task, saving yourself time, and getting healthy.
Also if we compare it to the Ancheer S8100, you get a better package for around $50 with the Ancheer S6200. And. It doesn’t take up that much more space. But, beware of its 300lbs weight limit. As the two year frame, three year motor warranty will be void if you don’t follow manufacturers instructions. The warranty period does make me think that they have a pretty good level of confidence in the parts though.
