The Proform Power 995i has been one of Proform’s most popular under-$1000 treadmills for around 4 years now. The Proform Power 1295i treadmill is an upgraded version of the 995 treadmill – recently introduced for the 2017 year.
Both treadmills give you up to 15% incline, extra long 60 inch running belts, iPod docks and iFit LIVE options.
So how are they different and which is best for you? Here’s what you need to know.
Proform 995 vs 1295 – Price
The Proform 995i is the most affordable of the two coming in just under $1000 with Free Shipping here.
The Proform 1295i is the more premium model really designed for runners and people who want some extra luxury options. It comes in around $500 more, just under $1500 with Free Shipping here.
Proform 995 vs 1295 – Console
The consoles on these treadmills are very different. The Proform 995i is decent – with a LED Watts display here:
As you can see it’s very simple. Now look at the Proform 1295 console – with a full color touch-screen web browser:
Here’s another view:
As you can see the Proform 1295 is much, much more entertaining. You can surf the net, watch YouTube videos or catch up with Facebook friends all from your console.
Another thing I like about this console is that you can get constant feedback on all your stats. With the Proform 995i treadmill you have to toggle back and forth – which can be a bit annoying.
Proform 995i vs 1295i Treadmill – Motor
The Proform 995 comes with a strong 3.0 HP motor – which is actually quite good for the $1000 price point (one of the reasons it’s been a best seller for years).
However the Proform 1295 treadmill goes one better with a 3.5 HP Motor. This basically means it can take more use – and abuse than the Proform 995 without breaking a sweat. That makes it a better option for runners or multiple-user homes.
Proform 995 vs 1295 – Warranty
You also get a bit more warranty protection on the Proform 1295 vs 995 treadmill – which at the higher price point is exactly what you’d expect.
You get 2 years on service vs 1 year on service for the 995 – which alone can save you quite a bit of money should something go wrong with your treadmill.
Proform 995 vs 1295 – Bottom Line
So which is best for you? Well, they both have their perks. The Proform 995i treadmill is the more affordable treadmill with some strong basics. Plus it’s been around for over 4 years now with a proven history.
However the Proform 1295i treadmill outshines it with a much better console, stronger motor and longer warranty.
So it really depends on what you are looking for in a treadmill.
