The Schwinn MY16 830 and Schwinn 870 are both high-quality treadmills for home use, designed for durability and comfort, with plenty of features and options to keep your workouts varied and challenging.

Both the Schwinn MY16 830 and Schwinn 870 Treadmills offer speeds of between 0 to 12 mph and feature large 2.5” crowned rollers for smooth operation.

The Schwinn 870 Treadmill is the higher-end model over the Schwinn MY16 830 and as such offers several upgrades in build quality along with more program variety (26 programs compared to 22).

Both the Schwinn MY16 830 and Schwinn 870 Treadmills feature motorized inclines for additional challenge, with the 870 model offering 0-15% incline while the 830 model is slightly less at 0-12% incline.

The Schwinn 870 Treadmill incorporates a more powerful motor than the MY16 830 (3.0 chp compared to 2.5 chp) and features a slightly longer running belt at 60” long compared to the 830’s 55” long belt.  Both belts are 20” wide. 

The Schwinn 870’s belt is also thicker (2 ply compared to 1 ply) and is constructed with more cushioning than the Schwinn MY16 830 (6 cell SoftTrack compared to 4 cell SoftTrack) providing less impact on your joints when running.

The Schwinn 870 Treadmill comes with an upgraded console while the Schwinn MY16 830’s console has been newly designed for ease of use.  Both consoles are still packed with features, including a USB port for charging and data export to SchwinnConnect, 4 user profiles, a sound system with acoustic chambered speakers with MP3 input, a 3 speed cooling fan, a built-in media shelf and dual water bottle holders.

Both consoles display motivating workout stats but the design of the screens differ with the Schwinn 870 feature a Dual Track 2 LCD blue-backlit display while the Schwinn MY16 830 features a single blue backlit LCD display.

Both treadmills offer heart-rate monitoring so you can keep within your target heart rate zone.  You can measure your heart-rate via either the built-in contact pulse grip sensors located in the handlebars or use the telemetry enabled console with a wireless heart-rate chest strap.  A chest strap is included with the Schwinn 870 but not with the Schwinn MY16 830.

There’s a slight difference in the overall size and weight of these treadmills (see table below) but both the Schwinn MY16 830 and Schwinn 870 are well-constructed with oversized crossbar tubing for added stability and allow for a maximum user weight capacity of up to 300 lbs.

Both treadmills feature a Soft Drop folding deck system to help save space when not in use and both feature transportation wheels for easy relocation.
