The console on the Reebok ZR10 is easy to use and packed with features! At its centre, a large dual colour backlit LCD window provides feedback and programme information. Important metrics, such as exercise time, current speed, current incline, calorie consumption, distance covered and heart rate are continuously displayed in dedicated segments of the display.
In addition, the treadmill offers 24 pre-set programmes (whose profiles are printed on the console itself) that control the speed and incline of the treadmill, as well as 3 user-defined programmes, 3 target programmes (time, distance, calories) and a bodyfat programme! In order to use the heart rate control functionality, the console has a Polar wireless heart rate receiver built in that can be used with an optional chest strap for ECG accurate, continuous heart rate measurements.
When a chest strap is not in use, the hand grip sensors that are built into handlebars may be used for quick measurement of pulse rate. The handlebars also feature controls for making adjustments to the speed and incline levels - a convenient feature when running at higher speeds.
As well as being packed with programmes, the console has a pair of speakers, a cooling fan as well as a water bottle holder!
The treadmill itself folds to quite compact dimensions and the mechanism has a soft-drop feature for safety and convenience. The built-in transport wheels make moving the treadmill when folded an easy task.
It is also worth noting that assembly of the Reebok ZR10 is very straightforward as the machine is supplied 95% pre-assembled in the box!
