Further down the page, you’ll find some explanations regarding the key similarities and differences between the Horizon Fitness T202 and the Horizon Fitness T303.
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:
As you can notice, Horizon T202 is the older model compared to T303. But how different are they? Let’s find out in this article.
Firstly, we should compare the pricing of the two models. The model T202 goes to the market at the rate of roughly 800 dollars, while buyers have to pay about 1,000 bucks to bring Horizon T303 home. Hence, Horizon T303 is there for anyone whose budget is ample, while those with tight budgets can spend 800 bucks on the Horizon T202.
How about the differences in the measurements and weight, you might wonder. Now, let’s see which one is bigger. First, we need to compare both sizes to see if they are suitable for training areas.
Surprisingly, Horizon T202 ties with its descendant as both come with the assembled dimensions 75 inches long, 34 inches wide, 58 inches high. However, there is a slight gap regarding the weight of the machines. In detail, the T202 is 215 lbs heavy- 97 kg, while its sibling counts 196 lbs- 88 kg. So, you can see a small discrepancy between the two treadmills when it is about weight. You can surely consider these factors when choosing the treadmill that best suits you.
Between Horizon T202 and Horizon T303, there is no significant difference regarding maximum weight carrying capacity. Like the other treadmills from Horizon, both the model T202 and T303 can handle users of the maximum of 325 lbs- 147 kg. We highly evaluate this high weight capacity because this capacity will fit most users, ranging from keeping fit, losing weight, etc.
Now, let’s move to the treadmill’s incline level comparison. Overall, the Horizon T202 model overtakes the model T303 in this battle. To illustrate, the Horizon T303 treadmill, despite being the newer model than T202, can tilt within the range from 0%-15%, while Horizon T202 can flexibly adjust the incline to tilt from 0%-12%. Hence, the Horizon T202 model offers users a more advanced level of training.
How about the differences in the number of pre-programmed workouts? Particularly, Horizon T202 wins the rivalry against Horizon T303 because the former integrates 12 pre-installed training programs- 4 more than Horizon T303’s. As a result, users can freely switch to different workouts in the Horizon T202 model.
Regarding the discrepancy in engine power, going with a powerful 3 HP and 2.75 HP motor, respectively, the Horizon T303 and Horizon T202 model can quickly accelerate from 0 to over 12 miles per hour.
Finally, we can not miss the size of the machine’s tread belt. In detail, Horizon T202 and T303 are in a package with an ample 20-by-60 inch tread belt; most of the treadmills these days integrate this standard size, giving users exclusive comfort while running.
Overall, the features of the two models are almost the same. Firstly, let’s take a look at the wireless connection feature in Horizon T202 and Horizon T303. Users can transfer the training info to mobile devices, such as tablets, fitness apps, phones back and forth.
Both models possess a display screen with three small LED windows and a backlit LCD screen. So, if you do not prefer to look at different display screens, our models are not for you.
And fitness app compatibility? Most treadmills have broad connections with training fitness apps. Both Horizon T202 and Horizon T303 models are available to connect with several downloadable fitness apps, such as Fitbit and Under Armour.
While training, your body is getting hotter and hotter, causing water to run out of you, leading to a quick thirst. Horizon introduces an integrated cooling fan and dual water bottle holders on the consoles of the treadmills to give users the most convenient experience. And for entertainment, users can listen to their fav playlists via a supported speaker & sound system in the machines.
Finally, both treadmills allow users to track their heart rate via Heart Rate Monitoring technology integrated into the handlebar grips. Just by a quick grip, you can read your heart rate data on the screen; sounds convenient, right?
