Manual and electric treadmills have their own pro and cons. Thankfully, I have the option to switch from manual to automatic and vice versa with the Goplus Electric Treadmill 800W.
Easy Assembly And Storage
Being a very basic machine, it requires minimal time and effort to set-up. It is very lightweight and folds easily. I can also swiftly move it to a corner or under a bed because of its wheels.
I use it at home but that doesn’t mean that I do not keep track of my workout. It has an LED display where you can check the time, distance, calories, and speed. It is worth noting that speed is shown as kilometers per hour and not miles per hour.
It is energy efficient.
It has a safety key which I attach to myself. It will pull immediately to stop the machine in case I slip or fall.
Design And Specifications
The Goplus Electric Treadmill is powered by an 800W motor.
Its speed range is between 1 and 12 kilometers per hour and it accelerates in 1 kph increments. There is no option to show the speed in miles per hour.
Its runway size measures 14” x 39.4”. Aside from this limited space, the belt has a tendency to slip so it can be both uncomfortable and annoying.
It can hold up to 220 lbs. of user weight. However, it is very lightweight and may not be sturdy enough for users near the weight capacity.
Is it easy to set-up?
It is easy to set-up because very minimal assembly is required. It comes out of the box almost completely assembled.
Is it quiet?
Yes. I get to watch TV without having to turn up the volume. It comes with a small bottle of silicone oil which needs to be used every three months to avoid noise as well as friction.
What is the shipping weight?
The weighs just about 60 lbs. The delivery person didn’t have a hard time at all.
What is the user weight capacity?
The weight capacity is listed at 220 lbs. although it is best for people under 200 lbs.
Can I run on it?
Yes. Running up to 12 kph should be possible. However, it’s such a small treadmill that I feel apprehensive to push it to its limit.
Are there cup holders?
Yes. There are cup holders on both sides.
Another treadmill in the same price range is the Fitnessclub 500W or any of the treadmills listed on this page. The Fitnessclub has more or less the same features but has a better deck which provides cushioning for more comfort.
If you’re looking for a more expensive treadmill, the Amazon best-selling Weslo Cadence G 5.9 Treadmill is a good option. It has a more powerful motor, pre-set workout programs, two-position incline, a heart rate monitor, and a cushioned deck.
Goplus 800W Electric Treadmill: Conclusion
Aside from the occasional instability and limited space of its runway, it does not have major flaws. Unfortunately, not much can also be expected from it as well.
With its performance, it is still safe to say that it is good for those looking for one of the most basic and affordable electric treadmills in the market.
