WalkingPad A1 Pro Review:
Is it the best treadmill for home?
Not so long ago, the IFA 2019 exhibition was held, where in addition to numerous new products, much attention was paid to the real implementation of the concept of a “smart” home. Everything goes to the point that soon we will not need to make unnecessary gestures for ordinary tasks, such as cooking, washing, buying food and cleaning. What can I say, right now, to turn on / off the lights and household appliances, just say a voice command. This is all good, but low mobility is bad for our health.
One of the solutions to the problem are treadmills. There is an option to go to the gym, although most often this does not have enough time and desire. Another option is to get a treadmill home and play sports without even visiting a gym, which is especially important during a pandemic.
The WalkingPad A1 Pro being tested today is a great option for home and office, offering compact dimensions and a foldable design. Let’s review this device.

The treadmill comes in a box of unpainted cardboard with a minimalistic design inherent in many Xiaomi youpin products. The kit includes a remote control, battery, cord, network cable, user manual.
Unlike classic treadmills, the WalkingPad A1 Pro comes in a foldable design. It is assembled on the basis of a book.
In the assembled state, it can be hidden under the sofa, without taking away the usable area. This is especially true in small apartments and offices.
Collection and analysis does not require additional assembly steps. It is immediately ready for use and direct use for its intended purpose.
The body of the treadmill is made of silver-colored plastic. In the disassembled state, the length is 1.43 meters, the thickness is about 13 centimeters.
The treadmill is designed for people weighing up to 100 kilograms, this is one of the main differences from the WalkingPad A1 model without the Pro console, which is designed for a maximum weight of 90 kg.
Since we are talking about the main differences, we should mention the second important difference of the Pro version. This newly upgraded brushless motor with excellent noise reduction and more stable operation. It is also worth noting that in both versions of treadmills there are restrictions on speed. By default, 3 km / h, later in the application can be increased to 6 km / h.
You can’t run on it. This is partly due to design features. Running means an increased load on the belt and requires an additional frame for safety. Although it is worth noting that it is a step with a normal speed that is optimal for health.
For the convenience of moving from place to place, there is a pair of wheels. She herself weighs about 28 kilograms.
A wear-resistant anti-slip coating with a multi-layer noise reduction structure is used. There are several zones on the track that automatically change the speed of movement.
The main unit has a built-in LED-display that displays technical information, speed and the number of steps taken.
Three mechanical control buttons are available for switching on, switching to manual mode and changing the direction of movement.
On the front side is a socket for connecting a network cable. Here is a mechanical toggle switch.

The WalkingPad A1 Pro treadmill supports control via the MiHome control center. As with many smart devices of this manufacturer, we recommend exhibiting the region – China. Here this approach will provide an opportunity to increase speed from 3 to 6 km / h.
The application is useful for viewing statistics for selected time periods. During daily use, especially with a watch or bracelet, it is not often needed.
WalkingPad A1 Pro In use
Many people gain weight due to a sedentary lifestyle, working for a PC and eating poorly. Steps are one of the important components for weight adjustment. The World Health Organization itself recommends taking 10,000 steps daily. With our rhythm of life, this is observed by very few people, as a result, an increase in the number of diseases of the cardiovascular system, joints and obesity.
A treadmill is good in that you can combine physical activity with everyday activities, entertainment and work. Having set a high table, it is quite comfortable to work with a laptop and at the same time walk on the WalkingPad A1 Pro. Playing your favorite games on the Sony Playstation 4 Pro console while on a treadmill instead of a sofa is priceless.
The test track runs silently. It does not interfere with others and does not distract from work. The shape and dimensions are optimal. The kit includes a convenient control panel for manually changing modes and increasing speed.
Separately, it should be noted the presence of a high-precision pressure sensor. So it will be possible to adjust the speed of movement depending on the position on the canvas. Acceleration and deceleration runs smoothly. Supports child protection, overload and automatic standby. Suitable for those who are already actively involved in sports, and beginners.
WalkingPad A1 Pro is a good alternative to massive treadmills, which does not take up much space in the apartment / office and offers a folding design. The advantages of this device can undoubtedly include: application support, control panel, automatic speed adjustment, wear-resistant and anti-slip fabric, ease of operation and OLED display, application. Of the restrictions, it should be noted a weight of 100 kilograms and a maximum speed of 6 km / h.
