Nautilus Class Action Lawsuit Settlement
Nautilus has been ordered to pay $7 million to resolve class action allegations that it inflated horsepower ratings of Bowflex treadmills.
The Nautilus lawsuit was filed in 2020 on behalf of a treadmill purchaser who claimed Nautilus inflated the horsepower ratings of its treadmills in order to raise prices and deceive consumers.
Plaintiff alleges that horsepower is one of the most important specs to consumers when purchasing treadmills, and that in order to reach the horsepower advertised by Nautilus, users would have to provide 2 to 3 times the amount of power typically provided in residential electric systems.
In reality, the Nautilus treadmills ran at far lower powers, and the Plaintiff and other customers were tricked into paying more for Nautilus treadmills than they would have if they knew the truth, the complaint states.
The settlement benefits consumers who purchased certain Bowflex, Nautilus, or Schwinn treadmills between July 7, 2016, and Nov. 16, 2021.
