Display and User Interface Comparison
The Bowflex BXT216 has a 9″ Full Color, Backlit LCD and the NordicTrack Commercial 1750 has a 10″ full color touch display. The Commercial 1750 has a touchscreen which is great while the BXT216 has buttons for controlling the treadmill, so navigating this display is not as intuitive as the Commercial 1750. We think the bigger screen size of the Commercial 1750 is a plus.

The Commercial 1750 has 27 more programs, 38 vs 11. The NordicTrack Commercial 1750 is iFit Coach Compatible so you can get many more different workout options with this treadmill.
