Got a bit more time? Let’s look at its features and aspects in greater detail.
Let’s take a look at some of the features of Reebok’s treadmill.
Reebok’s Jet 100 treadmill features an LED display screen that will turn on once the treadmill is plugged in.
Unlike other models from Reebok, the screen is not interactive, but the accompanying buttons are large and easy to use, a great feature when you are running, no-one wants to hit the wrong button!
The screen also features seven alternative screens, allowing an amount of customisation for your workout experience.
The white colour and large buttons may not be to everyone’s taste, but in terms of practicality, it does the job well.
The large and bold buttons are an excellent feature for glasses wearers, as you can change speeds and inclines without any issues.
Similar to other treadmills on the market, it features a top speed of 16pkh and 12 levels of incline to get your heart rate up.
Reebok’s treadmill also boasts a heart rate monitor and 24 changeable programmes.
The heart rate monitor is in a more natural position than previous models and other treadmills, making it easier to grip and deliver an accurate reading.
It is worth noting that there are discrepancies with heart rate monitors across the board, and if you are concerned by the rate shown, it is always worth consulting your GP.
The programmes are an excellent way for those wanting to shake up their routine and try their hand at interval training, or beginners who are not quite sure what to do on the treadmill.
The treadmill has built-in speakers which allow you to plug in your mp3 player and play your favourite music without the need for headphones.
There is also a USB connector to do this and charge your devices. When tested, the speakers provide good sound quality and save the trouble of getting tangled in wires while you run.
What is handy is the built-in fan that this treadmill features! The fan is adjustable too, allowing you to control the direction of the cooling air based on your height and position on the belt.
There are also two drinks holders for your convenience, which does eliminate the need for leaving the treadmill mid-workout in search of water!
Talk cushioning to me
Reebok’s Jet 100 uses a cushioning system which they marketed as like running on air.
The treadmill uses unique air motion technology to provide a smoother and more comfortable running experience.
The belt of the treadmill features cushioning air pods which transfer air to adapt to the user’s foot strike.
The moving channels of air work to reduce ground reaction force to prevent potential injuries when running.
What this airflow cushioning does is help to reduce joint impact, enabling you to work out for longer.
When running on the treadmill, it does feel nice and comfortable. Whether it will work to avoid any injuries, it is difficult to say, but the comfort when you run is always a bonus.
Reebok’s Jet 100 treadmill produces a very low level of noise.
When we ran tests, it ranked very highly, higher is less noise in these tests, outranking more expensive treadmills too!
A quiet treadmill means your attention won’t be drawn to any loud noises from whirring fans or the belt and will allow you to focus solely on your workout.
It is worth noting that your treadmill will emit some noise, especially at higher speeds as the belt moves quicker and generates some noise.
When working out, it is always essential to assess the safety risks to yourself. The treadmill features several safety features, such as an auto-stop safety function.
Similar to the treadmills you will see in gyms, a red cord is attached to the front of the treadmill magnetically.
You can clip this onto your clothing while you workout. If the cord is pulled, the magnet will come away from the treadmill and will enforce an emergency stop.
This method of safety is one commonly used on a treadmill and ensures that the speed will stop should you require it.
It is always worth wearing the safety clip, even if you are using a slower pace on the treadmill, making sure you are covered in the case of any accidents.
The treadmill's arrival weight is 76kgs, making it quite heavy. It’s worth making sure there is someone to help you get the treadmill into your house if you have a contactless delivery.
When it arrives, the treadmill comes 90% assembled, making it a breeze to get you up and running.
All that is left to do is lift the frame, bolt in the screws and remove the red safety cap. The included instructions are easy to follow and should get you set up in no time!
Reebok’s treadmill also folds into an upright position, similar to other compact treadmills on the market.
The folding features allow you to store the treadmill in the corner or a room or under the stairs if you do not have the space to leave the treadmill out at all times.
Easy to use
When purchasing a treadmill, how easy it will be to use is always an essential factor. You don’t want to spend 20 minutes setting it up before you can begin your workout.
Reebok’s treadmill is reasonably straightforward and easy to use. You can set a preset speed, manually increase and decrease the speed quickly, allowing you to begin your workout almost immediately.
Anytime you spend money, you want to make sure there is a secure investment.
Reebok’s Jet 100 treadmill comes with an excellent warranty to provide you with peace of mind should anything go wrong.
The warranty with this treadmill applies to different parts of the machine. For the frame you get a lifetime warranty, so you are always covered if anything should happen!
You get a two-year warranty on parts for the treadmill as a whole, with labour included too, so you won’t even need to pay out for that!
The motor comes with a ten-year warranty too, providing you with cover should anything go wrong.
As always, there are some exceptions to the warranty, so be sure to read it carefully when your treadmill arrives so you know what you are covered for.
Reebok’s Jet 100 treadmill sits in the middle of the price range for treadmills.
It’s an excellent option for those who don’t want to spend a fortune on a treadmill, especially if it's your first treadmill, you might hate it and end up blowing your savings on a glorified clothes horse, not good!
Be sure the treadmill is within your budget before making your purchase.
