Display and User Interface Comparison
The Bowflex BXT216 has a 9″ Full Color, Backlit LCD and the NordicTrack Commercial 2950 has a 22″ Smart HD Touchscreen. The Commercial 2950 has a touchscreen which is great while the BXT216 has buttons for controlling the treadmill, so browsing the menus is not as intuitive as the Commercial 2950. We think the bigger display size of the Commercial 2950 is a plus.
