It is never too late to start a healthy lifestyle. Good health habits, such as exercise, can be part of your routine at any time and now thanks to domestic exercise machines you have the opportunity to make your day a complete workout. We present two options for treadmills, which can be part of any training. Next, we will compare both of these are the WalkingPad A1 vs P1.
Both A1 and P1 treadmills come, like most Xiaomi products, with a modern and portable style. In addition to their presentations, we have a combination of metal finish panels, decorative aluminum strips, and leather finish carpets. One of the most notable differences is that the A1 has an LED screen embedded behind the surface of the ABS panel.
Also in both cases, we have built-in wheels, for mobility, in the case of the A1 we have an orange pair in the front and for the P1 we have the same ones in the same place and an additional black pair in the rear. These treadmills are accompanied by wireless remote controls, for more efficient use, the P1 has a more complete and modern design control than the A1 since it has a built-in screen that allows us to visualize the function modes and the programmed times, in addition to the command buttons.
The two treadmills are made of a lightweight and resistant aluminum alloy, the incorporation of aluminum into the product makes it strong enough to withstand changes in speed and weight, and at the same time makes it lightweight for convenient transportation. The original designs of the A1 and P1 are of low inclination reducing the risk of falls, in addition to being so compact they minimize the effects of noise.
The surface of the treadmills is designed with a high-density fiber with a soft and padded gel layer for light and steady walk. In the case of the P1 we have a silent design engine, making your exercise experience ideal in case you want to enjoy music, videos or television while exercising. The P1’s engine is also an energy saver, making it environmentally friendly by reducing unnecessary power consumption.
We have before us two very similar treadmills, whose compaction characteristics are almost equal. We have both weighing 28 kilograms and have an unfolded size of 143.2 x 54.7 x 12.9 cm. An important detail is that the treadmills are very versatile, what we see in its folding size that reaches up to 82.2 x 54.7 x 12.9 cm, this is almost half of its original size. Thanks to this, and its built-in wheels mentioned above, they can be stored almost anywhere such as under the sofa, bed, table, closet, chair, etc. Both are extremely maneuverable, the treadmill is only 57 mm thick which makes them super thin compared to other brands.
Treadmills have the advantage of wireless remote control. The control facilitates the work of training since it is not necessary to stop in our routine to change the modality. The P1 has high-tech sports modes, which can be freely changed. This has two operating modes, the M mode known as the constant speed mode, which is used with the control and is recommended for beginners. and also, A mode of P1 also called the automatic mode, controlled by the speed of the walk, is recommended for expert users.
In the case of A1, we have these same training modes, which can control the speed through its patented Adaptive Speed Control system. The system and the integrated pressure sensors of the base allow to accurately measure the speed of the user. This technology detects the different changes in the footsteps, adapting immediately to the acceleration and deceleration, giving the manual freedom you need for a better experience.
Let’s talk about the qualities of Xioami devices, as it is well known that this company is a pioneer in the development of its platforms and software, it is not surprising that treadmills are part of the Xiaomi ecosystem. In this way, the A1 has to be integrated by the Mi Home application system and at the same time the Mija application. The application allows you to monitor your training rounds and customize them, allowing you to program times, speeds and changing modes, just by matching the treadmill with the App.
The P1 is also part of this platform with the peculiarity that for this model its own intelligent sports application has been launched, the WalkingPad app. The P1 takes the training to a higher level with its training system, which can regulate and determine: speed, distance, number of steps, calories burned and save everything in a personal history. The P1 application can be downloaded on any smartphone and paired with the treadmill.
The article talked about two state-of-the-art portable treadmills, their qualities, and characteristics, both of the same brand, and to this point, it will be believed that the differences are not so significant but there is still no talk of a decisive factor in the products, the price. The price of Xiaomi WalkingPad A1 can be found from $399.99 instead of $499.99 in the Gearbest online store. While the Xiaomi WalkingPad P1 is priced at $ 839.99 in the Banggood online store. Therefore, we have that in Bangood it will be 37% cheaper being at a modest price of $ 529.99.
Portable treadmills are always a good investment if your goal is to have a good physical condition and you do not have time to attend a gym in your daily routine. The versatility of Xiaomi products is an advantage in any situation since they do not require a specific user for their use, that is, they have the willingness to adapt to all audiences, be it an experienced athlete or a beginner who wants to start a life more healthy.
Compared to the two treadmills it is concluded that the best option is the WalkingPad P1 because despite many of its characteristics are similar, it integrates more useful qualities for better use.
