Just ordered a Tread+ and plan on using the screen as a browser to watch videos from webpages and keep track of my runs through my Apple Watch. Not planning on subscribing to Peloton's $39.99 monthly service. What am I missing out on?

Hey Scotty! Are you planning to jailbreak the tablet somehow? The normal tablet doesn't have Netflix on it.

I think the big downside of no subscription for me would be not having the leaderboard - in addition to the classes the leaderboard really motivates me to train harder on the bike.

I actually moved forward with the NordicTrack X32i. I tried the Tread+ at my local Peloton store and was not a fan of running on slats and after reading multiple reviews, I can say that I made the right choice. The Tablet on the X32i is great and boots into tablet mode once the developer mode has been set. I've been running 6 miles on the X32i the past 6 days with no strain on my knees due to the bouncing belt. In addition, I got this shipped to my house in 3 days rather than waiting 8 weeks.

Glad to hear you're happy with the NordicTrack!
