They take up less room than a standard treadmill, so they can fit under a standing desk and provide you with some exercise while you work.

The Kingsmith WalkingPad P1 is a less expensive alternative to the manufacturer’s WalkingPad A1Pro, which we previously evaluated.

WalkingPad P1 review: Price and availability

The normal pricing of the WalkingPad P1 is $499, which is $200 cheaper than the WalkingPad A1Pro. It costs the same as the manufacturer’s WalkingPad C1, which has a less powerful motor (0.75 HP) but also weighs less (48.5 pounds); the upgraded version, the C2, has a 1 HP motor, weighs 48.5 pounds, costs $529, includes a display, and is available in six colours.

The P1 is priced at $499, which is towards the low end of the pricing range for walking pads, which can range from less than $200 to more than $1,600. It’s also comparable to entry-level treadmills like the XTerra Fitness TR150, which has an MSRP of $649 but can be obtained for less than $500 on third-party websites.

WalkingPad P1 review: Unboxing and Setup

The WalkingPad P1, like the A1Pro, will arrive in a large box: 8 x 25 x 36 inches and 68 pounds (31 kg). The net weight of the gadget is 62 pounds (28 kg). It isn’t as heavy as the LifeSpan TR800 ($849 and 96 pounds), but there are lighter choices available, such as the ChoSports 176TM ($199 and 37.5 pounds).

As I mentioned in my WalkingPad A1Pro review, it’s a good idea to enlist the help of others to move the P1 into the house, take it out of the box, and place it where you intend to use it. The WalkingPad P1 comes with a somewhat short power chord (six feet), as do many large gadgets.

Given the device’s size, I recommend doing advance scouting of your home or apartment to determine where you want to install it before it arrives. This will reduce the amount of time spent transferring it from one location to another, which is a workout in and of itself. The WalkingPad P1 folds up and has two wheels built into the front to allow it to be stored under a couch or bookcase, though considering its size, I just left it where it was.

WalkingPad P1 review: Design and use

There are three significant contrasts between the WalkingPad P1 and the A1Pro. In the first place, the more affordable P1 doesn’t accompany a showcase. Second, to compensate for this, the remote is bigger and accompanies a little screen. Third, the engine is 1 HP contrasted with 1.25 HP, and keeping in mind that it’s without a doubt stronger than the A1Pro, I didn’t see a distinction in execution.

The absence of a showcase has the two advantages and disadvantages. A showcase is a standard element on each treadmill and on most strolling cushions. On the off chance that you’re accustomed to looking at a presentation to rapidly see your distance, pace, and slipped by time, then, at that point, the WalkingPad P1 may not meet your assumptions.

Then again, peering down at your feet when you walk isn’t great for your structure. Additionally, assuming you’re utilizing the WalkingPad P1 essentially to get in a few additional means during the working day or after the children are sleeping, then, at that point, there’s a fair possibility you’re not that worried about your details. That was the best case for me, so I didn’t miss seeing the showcase at my feet.

The WalkingPad P1 remote is intended to compensate for the absence of the presentation, however it falls a piece short. The little presentation on the gadget doesn’t consistently remain on, apparently to save the battery. To peruse the presentation, you need to hit the Start/Stop button – however if you don’t watch out, and you hit this button a subsequent time, the belt will stop unexpectedly. This happened to me whenever I first utilized the remote. Obviously, it was a horrendous shock.

It likewise requires some investment to set up an association with the WalkingPad P1. The screen on the remote will peruse “Stand by,” and squeezing the Start/Stop button simply makes the remote signal. In the interim, If you fire up the KS Fit application with your other hand, it’ll interface with the P1 in practically no time and afterward brief you to begin the belt. I wound up not utilizing the remote.

At the point when the WalkingPad P1 is in reality on, it functions admirably. The belt is tranquil, and insofar as you’re not occupied, it’s not difficult to continue to walk squarely in the center. That can get interesting assuming you utilize Automatic mode, which speeds up or dials back the belt contingent upon your position. It’s a fascinating component – it’s basically planned so you can handle belt speed with your feet, without the remote or application – yet it takes some becoming accustomed to, and assuming you delayed down excessively fast, the belt will just stop. This happened to me around two seconds into a walk. I decided on Manual mode the following time.

Similarly as with the A1Pro, you need to walk 1 km at 2.5 km each hour to “open” quicker speeds just as Automatic mode, so be ready for a sluggish stroll to start things off. It’s a happy opportunity to get up to speed with email, web-based media, or whatever show you’re gorging.

WalkingPad P1 review: App

KS Fit, Kingsmith’s app for managing its treadmills, walking pads, and smart dumbbells, doesn’t get much love in the Google Play store. The app’s rating is 1.4, and multiple reviewers report that KS Fit not only doesn’t sync well with Google Fit but has trouble connecting with their Kingsmith devices as well. 

KS Fit, Kingsmith’s application for dealing with its treadmills, strolling cushions, and brilliant hand weights, doesn’t get a lot of affection in the Google Play store. The application’s evaluating is 1.4, and various commentators report that KS Fit doesn’t match up well with Google Fit and experiences difficulty interfacing with their Kingsmith gadgets also.

At the point when I composed my WalkingPad A1Pro audit, I dealt with comparable issues. As a general rule, I needed to re-sync the application with the gadget prior to beginning a walk. There was additionally a 50/50 possibility that the application wouldn’t save a walk I had recently done.

Kingsmith delivered another form of the KS Fit application (v3.9.5) on Dec. 10, and as far as I can tell that appears to have mitigated a portion of the adjusting issues. With the WalkingPad P1, the application synchronized rapidly and furthermore saved each walk, including the day I completed two strolls in succession on the grounds that the belt halted when I accidentally squeezed Stop on the distant two times.

Given the presentation of the far off that accompanies the WalkingPad P1, I stayed with utilizing the KS Fit application to control the gadget. The application functions admirably enough for beginning and halting the belt. KS Fit will likewise run behind the scenes on your telephone while the WalkingPad P1 is running, so you can close the application and utilize other applications on your telephone while you’re strolling. It’s additionally a sorry battery suck, even on a more established telephone like my Samsung Galaxy S8.

Indeed, even with the new update, the KS Fit application might baffle any individual who’s utilized to applications from Fitbit or Garmin. When you open the application, there are two primary choices: Motion, to begin a walk, and Mine, to see your details. You can take a gander at your details in total, however you will not get the very degree of detail that other applications give (however imparting information from KS Fit to Google Fit or Apple Fitness+ will take into consideration this).

At last, I utilized the application principally as a swap for the controller. I wear a Garmin watch on my runs and track my details on the Garmin application, and I’m not excessively worried about a couple of strolling treadmill miles not making it into those details. Be that as it may, somebody simply getting everything rolling with an activity routine might need a more modern application – or, at any rate, to adjust with their telephone’s wellness application.

WalkingPad P1 survey: Verdict

Having tried both the WalkingPad P1 and the A1Pro, I favor the P1. Without a doubt, the remote was buggy and didn’t compensate for the absence of show on the gadget. Be that as it may, I didn’t actually see the slight minimization in power, and I was glad to utilize the recently refreshed KS Fit application to begin and stop strolls. For my purposes, that merits saving $200 for a gadget that I use to several days every week when I can’t get outside to get it done.
