The Frame and Construction
The construction of the Sunny Health & Fitness SF-T7718 Electric Treadmill is made up of two components, steel, and ABS material.
The frame is made of steel while other parts such as the side rail/motor, and the console posts covers are made of durable plastic.
It has a set of cushioned 14’’ handrails that provide support and safety during exercise. These can be swung upwards and out of the way when you don’t need them.
Interestingly, the handlebars also provide support to quickly exit your workout by skipping onto the textured rails without turning off the treadmill.
The base features adjustable levelers at the rear which are used to balance the unit on a surface that is not completely even. This enhances the overall stability of the treadmill and prevents any sort of wobbling during a workout.
Moreover, it is further stabilized by its assembled weight of 117 lbs./53 kg, and this does not impede the relocation process because there are transport wheels at the front base.
The overall assembled dimensions of the treadmill are 63’’ long by 29’’ wide by 49’’ high. Hence, a workout area with perimeters of 5’3’’ length by 2’4’’ width will be required. Although, for safety and ease of access purposes, extra clearance of 2’ is recommended to be added around it.
On the other hand, the storage area needed is pretty small due to its space-saving slim fold design. When folded it can be stored under a bed that has at least a clearance of 11’’ or better still, it can be propped up against the wall.
The Sunny Health & Fitness SF-T7718 Electric Treadmill’s deck has a textured running surface with dimensions of 47’’ long by 20’’ wide. This is suitable for users that are up to 6’ tall.
Although the taller you are the less likely you will be able to run on it without your stride being restricted.
The desk’s step-up height is about 3” and it makes it easy to get on and off the running surface without hassles.
Moreover, a shock-absorbing system is integrated to reduce the stress that could be felt on the joints. Hence, you can exercise with confidence knowing that you won’t feel the fatigue that comes with running outdoor on a hard surface.
There is a lubrication reminder that alerts you when the tread belt needs to be lubricated.
As aforementioned, this treadmill comes with a 2.5-peak horsepower motor that provides a 0.6-9 mph speed range. It is designated at the front base of the unit and covered with an ABS-made lid.
It needs to be powered by a 110-120 V DC regular electrical outlet.
The motor provides the drive needed for users that are up to 250 lbs./113 kg in weight to perform walking, jogging, and running exercises.
You can increase the speed level using the 3 mph & 6 mph quick speed buttons on the console or do so by an increment of 0.1 mph via the -/+ buttons.
The latter (gradual speed keys) enables you to set a tailor-made speed range that is suitable for your physical specs and fitness level.
When a speed level is changed, it transits gracefully without causing any hiccup that could make you try to recalibrate your speed.
The motor noise level is fairly quiet that it won’t interfere with the sound of the TV or music that is turned at a moderate level, and neither is it going to disturb people around you.
On the contrary, except you are walking on it, otherwise, the cadence of your feet will be heard over the noise of the treadmill.
The Sunny Health & Fitness SF-T7718 Electric Treadmill incorporates a console that features an LED display. It tracks workout stats or feedback such as Time, Distance, Speed, Calories Burned, Steps, and Pulse so that you will remain focused and motivated on achieving your fitness goals.
The readability is so good that it still retains its clarity even when viewed in a poorly-lit environment.
As you may have noticed, the monitor also displays your heart rate and there was no mention of it having heart rate sensors. Well, it does have one on the right side of the handlebar, which upon pressing a finger on it initiates a heart rate reading.
It is also interesting to let you know that the console is compatible with Sunny Health & Fitness mobile app. It is free and can be connected via Bluetooth.
This does pretty much what the digital monitor does but it also allows you to save your workout data.
There are 9 built-in interval-based programs that have predefined speed levels that alternate during each duration. These are designed to help you hasten the achievement of your fitness goals.
You can further challenge yourself by setting up a count-down goal for Time, Distance, and Calories.
Moreover, there are other additional features such as the USB/MP3 ports that are used for charging a smartphone and streaming music through the built-in speakers for quality output.
Also, the MP3 cable needed for the connection is included.
Aside from the integrated MP3/USB ports, and the built-in speakers, the treadmill also has an anti-slip tablet holder that enables you to secure a smartphone or tablet device.
Therefore, you can listen to music, watch a movie, or workout videos that are available in Sunny Health & Fitness library.
No incline system and neither does the deck have a fixed incline.
Ease of storage is one of the selling points of the Sunny Health & Fitness SF-T7718 Electric Treadmill.
It can be folded flat so that it will be possible to store it by propping it against the wall or putting it under the bed.
Also, even though it weighs 117 lbs./53 kg, it can easily be moved to another location via the transport wheels at the front base.
