Weslo Cadence treadmills are one of the most popular treadmills, if not the most, among exercise equipment buyers today.
The popularity of this treadmill has more to do with the company’s clever but effective marketing skills than the quality of the product. Equipment is readily available near you. It’s as simple as going to your local department store, like Walmart or SuperKmart, and literally finding yourself surrounded by at least 20 different Weslo Cadence models with rock-bottom price tags. Clever marketing makes you believe that you are getting a deal of a lifetime on your new treadmill. Are you? Many savvy buyers believe these treadmills are going from bad to worse, so be sure to do your research before making your purchase.
What makes these treadmills so bad? Most likely it has to do with its poor durability and short lifespan. Weslo parts have been shown to be sought after almost as often as actual treadmills. So this just makes it obvious that these treadmills break down quite often. Another report claims that they not only break down quite frequently, but also in a fairly new era. Also, the warranty is not the best and the parts are quite expensive. So maybe you should save your money and invest in something that is more durable and sturdy.
However, to be fair, if you’re not a serious treadmill user, this model may work for you. These treadmills are primarily designed for walking. The covers are small and the motors have little power, both maximum and continuous. This is not a treadmill, but it can easily satisfy your desire to walk.
Most models are equipped with the Impulse Drive system, Comfort Cell(TM) cushioning, adjustable incline, digital speed, and an EKG(TM) heart rate monitor. In addition, they are very compact and easy to store. Therefore, the options are quite elaborate for the price.
On the contrary, several consumers have reported that the digital speed panel may be defective, the speed continually changes as you walk. This could be quite annoying. Another consumer reported feeling like the belt was slipping forward every time he took a step and the treadmill was making a lot of noise. Also, the same consumer reported that at 3 mph it was running at full throttle. Therefore, the digital speed adjustment is not very precise. To top it off, it has been reported that the manual is not very easy to follow and the troubleshooting steps get you nowhere.
But to be fair, if you’re not a serious treadmill user, this model may work for you. These treadmills are primarily designed for walking. The covers are small and the motors have little power, both maximum and continuous. This is not a treadmill, but it can easily satisfy your desire to walk.
Weslo Cadence treadmills are designed for casual use only, or in other words, infrequent walking. If that’s all you’re looking for, this treadmill may work for you, but if you’re looking for a treadmill for daily workouts and running, you’re probably better off researching other brands.
