All I can say people, is it was LOVE at first run. This thing rocks. The motor is quiet, the belt is soft and smooth, the speakers are clear and loud, the heart rate strap is accurate.
The only down side is the fans kinda suck. Truth be told I don’t even feel them when they are on. But I can live with that.
One of the best features this treadmill has is controls are the arms so you don’t have to reach up to the display if you want to speed up or slow down or increase or decrease the incline. This makes it a lot easier to change everything during a run.
I have used several treadmills at different gyms and have always hated the heart rate grips. If I wanted to check my HR I had to grab those stupid things and hold one for a couple minutes to get a reading and most of the time it is not accurate anyway.
Well this treadmill has the grips which I don’t think are very accurate at least not while running but it also has a heart strap monitor. So before your run you just put it on and you have an accurate reading for the whole run…. LOVE IT!!
