Pros and Cons

After using this treadmill, this is a brief overview of some of the main pros and cons that we came across plus an overview of feedback from the general public so that you have a more balanced approach review…

Pros for the T202:

  • It’s like a gym quality treadmill in your own home backed with a host of entertainment features, auto inclines and program settings
  • Assembly instructions are excellent and easy to follow with all the tool and parts well laid out and labelled
  • The smooth running of the belt is excellent and the zone cushions on the deck are better than expected
  • You have the cooling fan which works great to keep you cooler and fresher in sweaty conditions and the inclines work great with the programs and quick button settings
  • There is space either side on the console LCD screen for holding items such as a water bottle, phone or a tablet
  • The noise level is lower than expected when compared to various other treadmills in the past and you have the hydraulic arm to support the folding and unfolding techniques
  • You get a heavy duty solid piece of equipment that is well capable of supporting heavier weighted people

Cons for the T202

  • Availability from  a UK perspective is somewhat limited so you should reserve it or book it as quickly as you possibly can as stock levels tend to be quite low
  • Deliveries can be slower than expected with the current situation so you will need to be more patient than normal when expecting a swift and fast delivery
  • This treadmill’s frame is large and bulky so you will need plenty of space in your home or dedicated room - not for small apartments
  • You need to be careful with assembly and mobility as this treadmill is extremely heavy
  • Price is on the high side so it is certainly not for everyone – only for the serious athlete with plenty of money in their pockets
  • The accuracy of the heart rate monitor seems to be a bit off and the cooling fan could be more powerful.

Power Levels

It’s not the most powerful treadmill we have ever used and the cooling fan could be better but apart from that, we found it difficult to fault it in any major way – overall we would have to say this is a solid piece of equipment that offers all the features you need to get the most out of your cardio exercise running sessions. The controls are easy to manage, the running deck is plenty big enough, the inclines are excellent and the power provided for the faster running speeds is more than adequate.

Would we buy it? Certainly yes and we have no hesitation in recommending it to the wider public and further information along with updated prices can be double checked below…
