Pros and Cons / Advantages and Disadvantages

Pros for the WP2 Citysports Treadmill:

  • When it comes to walking treadmills, this model is certainly one of the thinnest coming in at just 12.5cm which makes it easier to place under your bed or sofa or for general storage
  • The quality of the Bluetooth connections is very good and you will have your smart device connected in a few seconds and the loud speakers were better than expected
  • The level of noise is very low from the belt and motor and it gives you the option of walking in the comfort and safety of your own home while listening to motivational music at the same time
  • Application of the belt oil is quick and easy and you have the alert system so you know when it needs more oil instead of you having to guess it – its very rare to see this feature on treadmills
  • It includes a child safety setting so that they don’t start it accidentally which is one less thing to worry about
  • You get the small mini roller wheels to help you move it from one location to the next or for storing away after use
  • You have the option of doing a light jog also at the 6 km per hour pace so you are not just limited to walking only with this treadmill

Cons for the WP2 Citysports Treadmill:

  • There are no handlebars for those of you who prefer a balance support either side so you need to extra careful when jogging
  • You don’t get any pre-set programmes to work with or any ability to change the inclines
  • It doesn’t have any pulse sensors to keep track of your heart rates
  • Some of the tracking information such as the calories seems to be a bit off and the level of power from the motor is on the lower scale
  • The length of the deck is on the smaller end so it won’t suit people who are very tall over 6 foot with very long strides in our opinion
  • More treadmill oil will need to be bought in due course once your starter small bottle runs out
  • As it has the lightweight design, the overall frame is not as sturdy as we would like and feels a little flimsy and weak – not sure how long it would last in the months or years ahead
  • Isolated cases of remote control problems have been reported which should be pointed out
  • From a safety point of view, you need to have extra care and attention as there is no emergency stop or safety clip attachment to your clothes

Conclusion

After completing this review for the Citysports Walking treadmill, we hope our research and work here can give you a better picture of what this treadmill is all about and we hope it can help you make an informed decision.  It is designed as a basic ultra-thin walking treadmill with Bluetooth connectivity and it is certainly impressive for people who need an exercise machine for walking without having to pay over £500 for a larger heavy duty treadmill. It wouldn’t be a treadmill that we would specifically buy for our own cardio sessions but we would have no hesitation in recommending it to the wider public who want a simple walking exercise machine that offers a small compact size to suit those living in small living spaces.

Having the easy oil application technique and the Bluetooth connectivity is a nice bonus to have as many other treadmills in this category do not come with these type of additional features. That being said, the walking deck size is only 108cm long so it wouldn’t be suitable for taller people over 6 foot with longer strides in our opinion – more so for people under 6 foot and who are less than 100-110kg in weight
