Display & Controls
The console on this indoor treadmill is very slim and it features a backlit LCD display in the centre. This will show you a range of feedback as you exercise, including speed, calories, distance, time, incline and pulse. To the left of the display you will find five quick incline keys, and to the right five speed ones. These make for speedy changes, allowing you to perform interval training more easily. Beneath the screen the 12 pre-set programmes are listed in two rows of six, letting you select one at the touch of a button. There is a very useful tablet holder than can also take other similar items, and below that are located the On/Off button, Select, Start, Stop and Enter buttons as well as up and down keys for both incline and speed. The console also has an emergency stop button for your safety. All of this combines to make it a very user-friendly piece of equipment.
There is a wireless heart rate receiver built into the console so you can accurately measure your heart rate using a chest strap (not included) and with this train using the heart rate control workout programme. On the handlebars there are controls for speed and incline which make for quick and safer adjustments when you get going, and hand pulse sensors for monitoring your heart rate.
Despite being a lower priced option, this treadmill still offers a top range of workout programmes. There are 12 specifically tailored choices to get your heart pumping and your body working plus manual and user defined modes and a heart rate control option that works using the inbuilt wireless HR receiver and an optional chest strap. The machine will alter the incline and speed automatically to maintain the selected heart rate zone, allowing you to perform effective training.
Customise your sessions using the two user programmes that let you put in age, height, weight and gender information so that calorie feedback is more accurate.
