Domyos intense run treadmill is a semi commercial treadmill that can be used upto 5 hours a day with top speed of 22km per hour. It also has an incline of 15%. Running deck size is 50*150cm.

Surprisingly this has 40 preset programs, that is a lot for a treadmill.

And the max user weight is 150 kgs. Motor capacity is around 3 HP. 

The body is durable as it is made of steel and the board is from wood. It is made for indoor usages for cardio purpose.

The warranty on this decathlon treadmill is as follows – 2 year on motor and lifetime warranty on frame. 

This domyos treadmill can be used by all members of the family and it can be used for a long time of 35 hours per week. The running belt is also quite thick so it does not hurt knees. It has massive list of 40 preset programs that were created by a coach. It is just a button away in the console. The preset programs are based on goals like well being, calorie los, endurance and HIIT/interval training. You can also create a specific profile for each program. Also you can check all that data in Domyos E connected app.

This semi commercial treadmill have console with a 4 inch LED display to show distance, calories, speed, incline and heart rate. It also has a bluetooth which can be paired to your bluetooth device and you can then use the E connected app.

At the console there are all the controls to adjust speed and incline and also emergency kill switch. 

You can also listen to music as it has two 5 watt speakers by 3.5m jack or bluetooth.

The noise level is pretty good, it is only 54DB one of the lowest that I have ever seen. That is if you run on 10km/hour speed. The treadmill can be folded so you can save space when not in use. The treadmill itself weighs about 101 kg.

Final Verdict: I believe the build quality is great but the motor power and other features are not. Also there could be more value addition can be done to the running belt and shock absorption.

Welcare maxpro IM5001 Treadmill Review

There are basically no difference between those models but T900c specifies that it was made in China. These treadmills support upto 130 kgs max user weight and have a 1.5-3 HP motor. The running area is 50cm wide with 143 cm long, average length for running at this price range. 

The frame is made of steel so it will not get damaged at all. They do provide 5 year warranty on the metallic parts of the frame and 2 years of warranty (parts and labour)

These treadmills have 32 pre set programs, decathlon ust love preset programs. With the 1-3 HP powered motor you can run at top speed of 18km/hour.  The length of the running area is around 147 cm in width is around 88 cm, pretty average if you compared the price.

The 1.44 HP motor of T900 consumes about 370 watts of power if you are running at 8km/h if you are 90 kg. The sound levels are around 52db if the treadmill is working at 10 m/ hour.

The top console has a backlit lcd screen that shows you time, speed, distance etc. There are shortcuts to adjust speed and incline levels. Upto 10%. Console also has a safety switch and looks good and usable.

You can connect their app to track your workout data or use the bluetooth to play music using those bluetooth speakers.

The running belt have some cushioning but I am not sure about any shock absorbers, this could still provide some good effect for the knees though.

This treadmill is also foldable with wheels and have a soft drop system.

Final Verdict: Costly, if you want to buy another treadmill at this price range you will get at least 4 HP motor and a great build than this.

Cockatoo CTM11L Treadmill Review

This treadmill can be used for 5 hours a week and top speed is 16 km per hour. Also it has the Domyos Econnected app so you can track your workouts from your phone. There is also 10% incline also. And all that speed and incline can be controlled from the console. The console is good looking and feature rich, you can track speed, distance, time, calorie etc.

The motor is at 1.25 HP and consumes around 932 watts. Which is pretty average for all treadmills.

The treadmill deck has 141 cm length and is foldable.

There are speakers at the front, you can use a 3.5 mm jack to play music. There is also a place for tablet holder.

This treadmill has 24 pre set programs, 8 are health and well being category, 8 are as calorie burn, 8 as endurance.

Final Verdict: It seems just so pricey. In the domyos t520b treadmill review I could only see this.

Powermax TDA 230 Review

This treadmill is signed off as a low intensity jogging treadmill but the cost is around 40k! At this cost you will definitely get a lot of much better treadmills. That’s just my opinion though, you are free to chose what ever suits you best. The jogging length is 121 m and width is around 43 cm.

This has 10 pre set programs, 5 or health and 5 for calorie based targets.

The frame has high weight capacity though, it can support upto 130 kg. The frame is made of steel and the board is 100% wood. They give 2 years warranty on parts and 5 years on the frame.

T520 console is friendly and easy to use, all the speed adjust and incline control buttons are there. There is a tablet holder also.

The noise level is low, it will be 55 db at 10km/h.

Treadmill Run 100

Final Verdict: Weight capacity and design is impressive but if you compare prices then you may find more better deals.

Fitkit 100 Review

This treadmill has very minimal design and suited for small homes. It has around 1.25 HP motor and that can go up to speeds of 14km/ hour. That speed at this motor capacity of 1.25 HP is impressive. The noise at 14 km per hour will be around 66db.

This has 12 preset programs that you can use and all can be controlled from the console.

The treadmill itself weighs around 47 kg and total weight it can support is 130kgs. There are no mentioned limits of weekly hour usages but I would keep it to a minimum.

This treadmill may consume around 932 watts of electricity.

Run 100 by decathlon has no auto incline, it can only incline upto 3% manual. The running pad is soft and has shock absorbers.

Conclusion

I would say at that price you may get god commercial treadmills with great features from Powermax treadmill or Viva fitness Treadmills. They have superb models and mostly sell Indian made products. If you have Domyos or Decathlon store nearby just go that and try these treadmills and you will have a better idea.

There are also some domyos tc3 treadmill and domyos tc5 but these are not available right now. So in this domyos treadmill review India I skipped them.
