Best Choice 800W treadmill may not be a fancy one, but it is easy one of the best cheap treadmills you can get right now. When you are shopping in this price range, finding a good compromise between functionality and cost is harder than it sounds. Best Choice Products has managed to find a middle ground that works great for anyone looking to get into treadmills on the cheap. Today we are going totake a closer look and see what that compromise brings to the table.
Treadmills that you can get for cheap aren’t necessarily the best looking ones out there. However, that is perfectly fine. What we are more interested in is how well they are made. One of the more important aspects of any treadmill is always its frame. In case of Best Choice Products 800W, we have a rather solid subframe made of quality steel tubing. The bottom element is integrated into the belt drive assembly in a way that allows for pretty wide side steps. Overall, everything feels both sturdy and stable. Speaking of the belt, it is 38″ long and some 13″ wide. This puts it right in the average group for this price range. Belt is powered by a 800 Watt motor, meaning that it can facilitate light jogging quite comfortably. The control unit is integrated into a massive plastic surface which hides quite a few features. From an aesthetic point of view, such a massive interface gives the whole treadmill a serious look, but also quite a bit of functionality.
Features included in the 800W model are average for the most part. You have several fitness programs available, which can be selected using the built in display. Controls are fairly intuitive and require no special instructions to figure out. On the control interface itself, you will see two cup holders but also a shelf designed to hold your tablet, phone, book or anything similar. While placing anything on that shelf covers up the entire display, all of the critical controls such as speed selection keys and the safety key are both still accessible. When it comes to using the treadmill, we have come to a conclusion that it is good for two things. One of those is speed walking. This is by far where Best Choice Products 800W feels the most comfortable. With that said, you can quite easily break into a light jog. The lack of incline control limits the intensity of workout you can get, but we feel that this treadmill is still very much reasonable for this price range.
Despite its shortcomings and compromises, Best Choice Products 800W is still a very formidable treadmill considering how much it costs. It brings all the necessary features required for a good workout. Sure, we would like to see some sort of incline control, even manual one, but the lack there of is not a deal breaker. It could even be a good thing considering that the motor does not have to deal with additional stresses. If you are after adecent beginner treadmill and you are on a budget, Best Choice Products 800W is definitely a model you should check out.
