Easy to assemble
The Weslo Cadence comes with just 6 screws that need to be installed, as well as 2 L wrenches. (Two of the screws will require a Philips head screwdriver.) The legs can be easily added by one person turning the base on its side. Once the legs have been added, finishing the assembly by installing the handlebars and dashboard is simple.
The Weslo Cadence is currently available for $287, which makes it a very affordable budget treadmill. Extended service plan options are also available, with 1, 2, and 3 year plans costing $60, $80, and $100 respectively.
Full digital display
The Weslo Cadence has a full digital display which is sometimes lacking in budget treadmills. The display features commonly reported statistics such as calories burned, time elapsed, distance ran, and MPH as well as having a thumb activated heart rate monitor.
The Weslo Cadence easily folds up to save space. The dimensions of the treadmill make it ideal for narrow spaces.
Simple to adjust the belt
The Cadence comes with two hex keys that makes adjusting the best extremely painless. (Just don’t lose them, or you’ll need to find a replacement.)
Does not make much noise. Even at higher
Has six preset workout routines which were developed by personal trainers to get powerful results fast.
Allows for a kindle or ipad to be placed on the dashboard while running, which is convenient for those who would like to watch movies while running.
No special connection needed
This product can be plugged into any electrical outlet, no special connection is needed. The manufacturer does recommend plugging it into a surge protector, however, to protect the internal components against power surges. The electrical cable that comes with the treadmill is about 6 feet long when fully stretched. The Cadence is not a power hog, and you can expect no significant increase in your electric bill even with daily use.
Only two incline settings
While it is very easy to alter the incline, there are only two incline settings. (0 and 10 degrees of elevation.) This is a downside for those that like to use increasing inclines as a way to add difficulty to their workouts.
Max Pace of 10 MPH
While this pace will be fine for most people, dedicated sprinters will be better off purchasing a more high level treadmill that can run at faster speeds.
No Pause Button
A minor inconvenience, but the lack of a pause button means if you take a break you’ll need to reset the speed at which you were previously running.
The Weslo Cadence is an excellent starter treadmill that is easy to store and has most of the features that are commonly expected in treadmills. It runs quiet, is easy to store and assemble, and will fit nicely into any home or apartment.
While some points were lost for only having two incline settings and due to the missing pause button, we can still give the Weslo Cadence G 5.9 a high score of 4.5/5 stars.
