 Best Treadmill Reviews – Schwinn Product Lines

Schwinn offers two folding treadmills, the Schwinn 840 and the Schwinn 860.

Schwinn 840

This treadmill can be used for both running and walking. It has a 2.5 horsepower continuous duty motor, cushioned 20” x 55” deck and a multi-color dual-screen console that puts control literally at your fingertips. 20 workout programs and up to 10 degrees of incline provide the versatility to customize a workout to specific muscle groups or fitness goals.

Schwinn 860

When you step up to the Schwinn 860, you’ll get a more powerful 3.0 horsepower continuous duty motor and a 20”x58” running surface that make it better suited for the needs of runners. You also get up to 12 degrees of incline to help you target different muscle groups. Both the motor and deck are uncommonly large for a folding treadmill, but may still feel too short for taller users or runners with a longer stride. One of the best features is the wireless chest strap that allows for hands-free heart rate monitoring.

 Best Treadmill Reviews – Schwinn Conclusion

With only two models to select from, Schwinn treadmills make the decision process pretty simple. These models will serve the fitness needs of many users. They offer more than the basics and feature a number of built-in conveniences such as book holders, water bottle holders and a cooling fan.

These folding treadmills also offer SoftDrop™ technology and transport wheels that make them easy to fold and move.

However, the difference between the two models may not be enough to make a difference to someone with specific fitness needs. The warranty is also short compared to other models at these price points.

Also, dedicated runners may find that these treadmills do not accommodate a long enough stride length.
