Do you need to learn more about the Ovicx Q2S Foldable Treadmill? If you are considering buying it over the next few days, then please make sure to check out our Ovicx Q2S Treadmill review which will outline everything you need to know about it along with a series of features, FAQ’s, dimensions, pros and cons so you can decide for yourself if indeed this is the treadmill for you or not.
For people who need a small compact and foldable treadmill, then this could be the perfect solution for you and your own home. It’s not the most powerful treadmill you will ever use and the size is only about average but it is certainly a good option for home use when it comes to getting in your exercise routines and helping you to keep in shape, burn calories and lose weight.
The design is very attractive and sleek and it blends in well to your home surroundings and having the Bluetooth connectivity to the Fitshow App adds additional support to your own work rates and fitness level targets.
Instead of a traditional LCD display dashboard, you have the LED monitor along the length that tracks all the main workout parameters with soft touch navigation buttons and you can switch to the walking mode of 4 km per hour with the press of a button in a comfortable and smooth transition.
Included in the Box
When delivered, the size of the box is a lot bigger than expected and ideally you should get help with the initial unboxing and assembly. Included in the box is the treadmill itself, a power cable, a wrench, silicone gel, a holder for a smart phone/tablet, a sticker and of course the user instructional manual.
The unboxing, set up and assembly should only take you around 15 to 20 minutes work in our opinion and remember to dispose of the packaging in an environmentally friendly manner.

Treadmill Features and Description
- This treadmill which has only become familiar to us in recent weeks, comes as a small compact treadmill that has excellent folding capabilities and makes it ideal for people living in really small living spaces. Not only can it be folded flat under your bed (needs a clearance of 8.5 inches or 21.6cm) but it can be folded upright also taking up space of just the width of the treadmill which is approx. a half meter.
- There is no major workload when it comes to folding up or down as it can be done in less than 30 seconds which is one less thing to worry about and the level of impact resistance and shock absorption on the deck was better than expected especially for the harder and faster running workouts.
- It has the roller wheels included to help you move the treadmill around into position, there is the safety clip which needs to be attached to your clothing and the speed settings work great when it comes to walking paces, speed adjustments and transitioning from walking paces to jogging speeds naturally
- The display for tracking is almost 11 inches wide or 27.6cm and you have the option also to use the Bluetooth connection with your Fitshow app on your smart device which can be placed into the smart device holder – this way you can keep yourself motivated and compare with your friends online.
- A detailed instructional manual is included in the box along with the tools needed, some gel and the smart device holder and assembly, unboxing and set up shouldn’t take you any longer than 30 minutes. The levels of impact absorption in the running deck is as good as other treadmills in this category, the maximum weight capacity is 120kg and it comes backed with a 12 month warranty for your protection
Price Guide: £450 to £550

Pros to Note:
- It includes the roller wheels on the front which helps with mobility and getting it into the ideal workout position
- When it comes to foldable treadmills, this treadmill is certainly one of the best when it comes to compact sizes – plus having the ability to fold and stand up right is a unique feature that we haven’t seen yet in any other treadmill
- You get the Bluetooth connectivity for the Fitshow App to help you reach your fitness goals which many lower priced treadmills don’t have.
- By just pressing the levers either side, it folds down quick and easy which is a lot quicker than most other foldable treadmills we have seen
- Smooth transitions from a fast pace down to a slower walking pace with the touch of a butto
- A holder for your tablet or smart phone is provided in addition to the LED monitor so you can listen to music or watch some light entertainment at the same time
- The level of power from the 3HP motor does not disappoint and you get a bottle of lubricant gel for the deck to get you started
Cons to Note:
- Having the ability to fold upright is great however we would be concerned about small children or pets with potential accidental knocks – what would happen if it was accidently toppled over?
- Can lack some key information tracking that elite athletes would be looking for, especially around advanced performance metrics.
- There are no pulse rate sensors included to keep track of your heart rate levels which is available on most other premium treadmills
- There is no ability to increase the incline settings for more intense workouts as you seen in higher priced treadmills for tougher sessions
- Unfortunately it doesn’t come with any built in pre-set programmes either which was a little disappointing considering the high price involved
- Without the smart device and Fitshow app, it is quite basic just on its own and you are limited to a max speed of 14 km per hour – plus it only displays speed in km per hour, not miles per hour. If you want to see miles, then use the Fitshow app instead
Overall, we would have to say that this treadmill is superb when it comes to foldability, running deck size, shock impact absorption on the deck and it gives you plenty of stability throughout with low levels of noise. There are plenty of Treadmills out there that are better than this that include traditional LED displays, loud speakers, MP3 players and stronger more powerful motors but none that fold up as well as this one in such a small compact size.
For the amount of money it costs, we felt though it was a little basic in particular when it comes to having no pre-set programmes, no inclines and no pulse rate sensors either so we believe the price should be somewhat lower than what they are charging. Nevertheless, for those of you that need a smaller compact treadmill that can fold up neatly and tightly, then you don’t need to look much further than this in our opinion.
Would we buy it if we needed a foldable treadmill? For sure yes without question so we have no hesitation in recommending it to the wider public and further information along with todays updated price can be double checked below…
