A smart running treadmill takes all the convenient, modern features that users can expect from most new treadmills, and takes them to the next level. These machines will allow you to maximise your workout, providing greater personalisation and control in your treadmill exercise. Smart treadmills are a broad category inclusive of a number of extra features, including adaptive speed controls, pre-programmed workouts, Bluetooth connectivity and smartphone compatibility. Each treadmill will come with a different selection of smart features, so here we’ll run through some of the key advantages of each of them so you can decide on a good fit for your workout.
And if you’re new to the world of treadmills, make sure to check out our treadmill usage guide for our tips on starting off right.
A common feature on many smart treadmills is a large LCD display, which can be used not only for displaying your workout data, but also for playing media and a range of entertainment options. A treadmill with smart TV screen will contain a highly responsive touch display, designed for a more efficient user experience and less time fiddling around with controls. Some models will even give you a choice of scenic routes to display on the monitor, immersing you in your run or walk. The screen will usually display workout metric data, including speed, duration, heart rate and calories burned.
When it comes to metric-tracking, smart treadmills go above and beyond, giving you access to a range of analytics. These help to more accurately track your progress, fine tune your workout or just provide a little motivation. Some models will be compatible with a wireless heart rate monitor, called Heart Rate Control. This involves fitting a strap to your chest, which will sync with your machine and automatically adjust incline and speed so that you’re always working out at your target heart rate.
A treadmill with smart screen can also be used for displaying workout programs, guiding you through a structured exercise routine. Pre-programmed workouts will also be a common feature on many smart machines, making automatic adjustments throughout, including speed, incline and duration. The fluid experience that exercise programs provide ensure a streamlined workout, with a fully automated system that allows you to jump on the treadmill and get going. Our programs are designed by personal trainers, with options to train at different levels and to focus on different areas of fitness. On top of this, many treadmills will include the option to design your own custom program for a personalised experience.
Automatic incline, a feature of many Lifespan Fitness treadmills, gives the user full control to adjust the incline of the running platform instantly. A smart treadmill with auto incline is operated by choosing the incline level on the display screen/console buttons, or pressing up or down to cycle through the levels. Having automatic incline means you can effortlessly shift levels without ever getting off the machine or having to lift a finger. Luckily, most treadmills will be fitted with automatic incline, so you have a range of options depending on your needs. Incline assists in increasing the intensity of your run/walk, while also activating a greater number of muscles in the legs and core.

A good example of the usefulness of smart features is when it comes to compact treadmills. These foldable smart treadmills are stripped down to essential components. This is usually a running belt on fibreboard base, with a small LED screen at the top. These are designed for ultimate convenience, economy of space and portability. As such, manufacturers have come up with nifty ways of making operation easier and less time consuming, so that you can focus on simply hopping on the running belt and going about your workout. One such feature is adaptive speed control, which gives the user the ability to adjust speed in relation to their position on the treadmill. This works by increasing speed when you move to the front of the running belt, slowing down when you move to the back, and staying at a constant speed when you remain in the middle. You’ll find this function will become very intuitive after a while, and you’ll be able to hop on and off your treadmill throughout the day without much thought or tinkering with settings. Alternatively, you can set the machine to manual mode and control the speed by either a handheld remote, or an app on your phone.
Speaking of which, smartphone connectivity is a key feature that many users enjoy about smart treadmills. This involves Bluetooth connectivity as well as apps that connect your phone to the machine. With many Lifespan Fitness treadmills, you can usually find several options for compatible apps to download onto your phone and connect with your machine. By doing this, you can track all of your workout data and access all of it from your phone. Some features you’ll find on select apps include: coaching videos, structured workout programs and virtual races. Bluetooth smart treadmills allow you to connect your phone via Bluetooth and play your own media through the treadmill’s speakers. Some treadmills will be equipped with high quality, dual speakers for the ultimate entertainment experience as you work up a sweat.
Smart treadmills cover quite a range of different treadmill sizes and levels, from ultra-compact, home treadmills to professional-grade, commercial machines. Whether you need something that will reduce hassle and fit into your busy schedule, or you’re a hardcore trainer looking to level up your workout experience, smart treadmills give you the tools to create your best workout.
