Further down the page, you’ll find some explanations regarding the key similarities and differences between the Horizon 7.4 AT and the Horizon 7.8 AT.
But before checking out explanations regarding their specs and features here’s a table that summarizes the main technical summary sheet for these 2 treadmills:
We know that price is always the top concern before purchasing a product. At this point, Horizon 7.4 AT gained more advantage than the 7.8 one. Due to its affordable price, this treadmill seems to be a suitable choice for those who would like to save money or have a tight budget.
However, letting price help you choose a product is not a wise choice. Let’s compare the other factors to see if a low product is always the best choice or not!
How about the weight each treadmill can deal with? While Horizon 7.4 has a weight capacity of 350 pounds, its enemy can deal with up to 350 pounds. Such a huge difference means that Horizon 7.8 has a stronger capacity when it comes to weights.
Moreover, both treadmills share the same built-in 10 HIIT program. It is not a surprise because it is a common specific characteristic of the Horizon brand.
However, the two machines are significantly different when it comes to motor power. Horizon 7.8 AT takes the lead point from this lens due to its power capacity up to 4.0 HP, while its competitor seems to run weaker (It only gets 3.5 HP).
In terms of incline range, it is a head-to-head comparison because they have the same range: 0-15%. Yes, there is no difference between them in this aspect!
They also share a similar maximum speed, which all offer users to run up to 12 MPH. Reasonable choice!
Unfortunately, as a machine-specific for the HIIT program – which helps the users burn the calories in a short time, they do not have a cooling system. It means that if you want to run for a long time, both of them are not a good choice.
Happy news for those who want to keep track of their heart rate is that both treadmills offer the wireless chest strap connected with your phone through Bluetooth, which can conveniently help the users monitor their heart accurately.
Between two treadmills, which is bulkier? The answer is None of them. They share a quite similar dimension, as the 7.8 is 76 x 37 x 64 inches, and the other is 76 x 37 x 63 inches. In contrast, there is a remarkable distinction between 7.4 and 7.8 regarding the item weight. While the 7.4 only weighs 318 Pounds, its rival weighs up to 330.69 pounds. Indeed, the winner in this round is Horizon 7.4.
Another factor that you must consider before making the decision is the running area of the treadmill. To be more specific, Horizon 7.8 and 7.4 offer the same 22″x60″ surface, which is large enough for you to comfortably exercise.
As mentioned above, Horizon 7.8 AT has more innovative features than Horizon 7.4 AT. The biggest disadvantage when using Horizon 7.4 AT is that it does not have a big screen. In detail, you have to use a separate tablet while utilizing 7.4, which means that there is no screen integrated with the treadmill. It is a big inconvenience to those who do not own a tablet. Compared with Horizon 7.4, its competitor seems to be better due to its big LED screen, which helps users monitor the machine more conveniently.
Moreover, while Horizon 7.4 AT has several training options suitable for those who like the frequent change, its enemy seems to be more modern and well-equipped with the mode “Rapid Sync,” which is designed so that the motor could rise and go down rapidly and smoothly.
Nevertheless, the two products come with a discount for their exercise learning class.
What about the BlueTooth connectivity and USB port? Well, both of them all provide you with BlueTooth connectivity and a speed USB charge port. They also have a large holder to place your smartphone, other stuff, even the water bottle, for the best convenience.
