Treadmills come in a plethora of designs equipped with various features. Some are more sturdy and durable than others while there are high-end models which have tons of features not present in cheaper varieties. There are many top brands in India offering treadmills at various prices.
These are some of the factors which influence the costs of treadmills in India.
Continuous Horse Power or CHP is the unit which indicates the power of a treadmill. Treadmills having motors of higher power ratings cost more as compared to the models with lower-rated motors. If you need a treadmill for running, then its motor must be 3.0 CHP or above. Thus, you will have to shell out more money than a person who needs a treadmill for jogging or walking.
Feature-rich treadmills cost much more than the ones having fewer features. Basic models display the speed and pulse rate only while the more expensive ones display other parameters such as BMI, calories burned, the water level in the body and other parameters apart from heart rate. The price of a treadmill having an automatic incline function, which increases or decreases the incline of the treadmill belt is more than the treadmills, which require manual intervention to adjust the incline.
Expensive treadmills come loaded with fitness programs. You need to select one among the pre-set programs as per your fitness goals. Once a program is selected, the treadmill automatically adjusts the speed and incline as per the program. Customisable programs can also be present in such treadmills. Many high-end models also sync with fitness apps on mobiles and tablets. Basic treadmills which cost less do not have pre-set fitness programs.
Many additional features such as USB ports, iPhone docks, speakers and even LCD television are present in many high-end models of treadmills. These are even more expensive and commonly purchased by gyms.
Overall, the basic fact is that with an increase in features, the price of treadmills also increases. If you don’t need a lot of features, then a budget treadmill under 20000 rupees is a suitable option.
Shock absorption reduces the impact on the body by 40%. Most treadmills are equipped with shock absorbers, but very cheap models do not have shock absorbers. There is no need to compromise on this feature to save some bucks because you need protection against injuries. Shock absorbers in a treadmill can either be springs or elastomer cushions. The latter kind of shock absorbers is found in more expensive models of treadmills commonly used in commercial places such as gyms and fitness clubs.
Treadmills manufactured by global brands cost more as compared to treadmills made by indigenous brands. Whether you go for global or Indian brand as per your budget, it is necessary first to ensure that the brand is known for its high quality and good service.
A good quality treadmill can be purchased in India for Rs. 15,0000 to 30,000. Higher models can cost as much as Rs. 60,000. Cheap models do not provide more than 90 days warranty on the parts while higher priced models provide a minimum of 1-year warranty on the parts.
