Smooth 6.45M Treadmill Review

The Smooth 6.45M folding treadmill with whisper weave belt and swing arm shock absorption system.

This is basically the Smooth 6.45 model but with the added benefit of a sound system to which you can attach an iPOD, MP3 player, or CD player via an auxiliary jack.

It has a 20″ x 60″ tread belt that is powered by a 3.0 HP continuous duty motor. The shock absorption is taken care of by a “swing arm” suspension system that has been designed to reduce the impact of walking and running.

The inbuilt workout programs include: Target Distance, Target Time, Target Calories, Interval Incline, Interval Speed, Weight Loss, 5K Self-Learning/Competition, Heart Rate Control. Additionally there are 3 user defined programs that can be customized.

The interactive LED console allows you to monitor your speed, distance, calories, time and pulse simultaneously, while a speed profile window displays the intensity of every stage of the workout.

The product warranty consists of a lifetime frame and motor warranty, 5 yrs on all other parts and 2 yrs labor.

Here are the main high lights of this model:
… drive motor

The treadmill utilizes a powerful 3.0 HP motor. This unit has more power than a regular drive system and is controlled by a Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) electronics usually only found on high end commercial treadmills.

This motor is for all practical purposes noise-free. Optical speed sensors and the PWM electronics provide smooth speed changes whilst dual motor fans allows you to exercise for longer periods while maintaining a smooth and consistent operation.
… shock absorption

The swing arm shock absorption suspension on this model has been designed to lessen the impact of walking and running. This is just like the suspension system found on gym quality treadmills and provides smooth, shake-free running while ensuring good joint protection.
… workout programs

The equipment comes with 8 challenging workout programs pre-installed:

Target Distance, Target Time, Target Calories, Interval Incline, Interval Speed, Weight Loss, 5K Self-Learning/Competition and Heart Rate Control. Additionally there are 3 User-Defined Custom Programs.

.. LED display

Sporting an oversized LED Console with clear easy to read displays, this intuitive, interactive system lets you monitor your speed, distance, calories, time and pulse simultaneously. Additionally a speed profile window displays the intensity of every stage of the workout.
… heart rate control

The treadmill comes equipped with Heart Rate Control with optional chest strap. The pulse reading from the hand grip pulse monitors is used by the treadmill’s computer to automatically adjust the intensity of your workouts. With the treadmill working in harmony with your heart you can reach your optimal fat burning or endurance training zone.
… multiple user profiles

The equipment incorporates nine storable user profiles. This facility is especially useful in households with multiple users. Up to nine people can save age, weight and target heart rate information for instant access without the need to key in the personal settings of each user each time.
… whisper quite

One of the most surprising features of this treadmill is how quite it is in operation. Running treadmills are often noisy, but the Whisper Weave tread belt fitted to this model coupled with the virtually silent motor helps makes it as quiet as any on the market today.
… iPOD connection

The treadmill features deluxe sound system. Simply hookup your iPOD, MP3 player, CD player or other audio device to the auxiliary input jack and you can experience your favorite music during your workout.

A nice feature is an oversized volume control knob in the center of the console so that you no longer have to to fumble with the tiny controls on your audio device during your workout.

… user weight

You should always ensure that when choosing a treadmill that the user weight limit is greater than the maximum user weight quoted by the manufacturer. The user weight of this treadmill is 325 lb.

… folding design

The treadmill is fitted with a dual-stage, soft drop folding mechanism. This gas shock-assist lift system allows you to gently tilt the deck into position and wheel it away for storage after use. You can then softly drop it back into place and it’s good to go for another workout.
… warranty details

The Smooth 6.45M treadmill is underwritten by a lifetime warranty on the motor and a lifetime warranty on the frame. There is 5 yrs warranty on all other parts (including electronics) and 2 yrs in home labor.
