Xiaomi WalkingPad Mini Review: Treadmill With A Folding Design

With the increase of life pressure and the development of some bad habits, many people are in suboptimal health status (SHS). With the continuous improvement of living standards, more and more people are beginning to realize the health problems and choose to go to the gym for fitness. However, in the actual experience, we found that most people still have the habit of going to the gym even their abonnement has ended in the gym.

This is because sports is actually an activity that requires continuous persistence to be effective. For most people, the enthusiasm is not high. Say the cost of time required for sports is often high. We must not only choose clothes and the gym that corresponds to our requirements but also we should meet and reach an agreement with trainers that should plan their own time and so on. This simply means the fitness card we have acquired for a quarter or for a longer period will turn into a waste of money because believe us and our experience, you won’t have enough time to visit the gym and use your fitness card as planned.

If we encounter such a situation before, we would give up on ourselves, and as a result, come to a conclusion that fitness is not healthy, and we are wasting money. In fact, when we sit for 8 hours a day and go to the gym to sweat, what we need more is a fragmented fitness experience. When you work, you can get up and walk and do stretching. This is a reasonable and time-saving exercise. Honestly, for most people, this is all they need. In this sense, the Xiaomi WalkingPad Mini is one of the best solutions. We have already experienced it and we’d like to share our experience with you.

Small and sleek design

The Xiaomi WalkingPad Mini is very simple in design. The walking machine is made of the aluminum alloy frame. This is the case when the durability is directly related to the weight of the whole machine. The net weight of the whole machine is only 28Kg. For many users, it may be quite heavy, but when compared with other similar products on the market, this is a feather.

The biggest selling point of the Xiaomi WalkingPad Mini walking machine is that it has a foldable body. We only need to lift the back end of the walking machine to complete the folding process.

After the treadmill is unfolded, its size is 1432 × 547 × 129mm, which is way smaller than the standard treadmills available on the market. No matter we are at home or in the office, there is enough space for the walker to use.

In the sport mode, the Xiaomi WalkingPad Mini has two types: fixed speed mode and automatic mode, corresponding to M and A on the treadmill mode indicator. The fixed speed mode is easy to understand, that is, we manually control the walking speed. When the fixed speed mode is turned on, the walking machine will set the initial speed value to 3km/h, which can be increased by adding and subtracting the remote control or reducing it by 0.5km/h.

The automatic mode realizes the corresponding speed synchronization through intelligent algorithms by partitioning the walking area of the walking machine. The front section of the walking area is the acceleration sensing area, the rear section is the deceleration sensing area, and the middle is the uniform speed sensing area. The users can select the corresponding area according to their own requirements to achieve the effect of speeding or decelerating.

The Xiaomi WalkingPad Mini walking machine supports speed adjustment of 0.5~6.0km/h. In actual use, the jogging movement can be realized at high speed. However, it should be noted that because the walking machine adopts a very small design, it does not provide the armrest like a traditional treadmill. For the initial use, it’s recommended to use it with certain safety measures.
