Xiaomi Golden Smith WalkingPad P1 Review
Walking is the easiest way to exercise in life. And it is often overlooked by many people. In fact, walking can not only keep fit and lose weight but also prevent many diseases. Especially for the working class, walking is the cheapest and most convenient way to exercise. But there may not be many people who can insist on "walking" every day. Especially in this cold winter, and the severe haze everywhere, it is the choice of most people to stay at home after work. For girls, this is undoubtedly a fatal blow!
The lazy way of fitness
So how do you stay at home and exercise in the laziest way? This ‘lazy’ fitness machine dubbed as the WalkingPad P1 is a light exercise walking machine built by Xiaomi ecological chain company Golden Smith. With it, you can do aerobic exercise for brisk walking or walking without leaving home every day. You can do fitness and lose fat at home.
We are dealing with the Golden Smith WalkingPad P1 pink version (limited edition), and it is not difficult to guess that it is specially made for women.
The Golden Smith WalkingPad P1 uses a folding design. After opening, the whole machine looks very small.
The thickness is only 322.5px when folded, which is about two-thirds of a smartphone.
This limited number on the top of the machine means that there are only 2,000 Pink Golden Smith WalkingPad P1 models in total.
The weight limit is 90kg. It is indeed a walking machine designed for women.
The weight of the WalkingPad P1 is about 28KG. So though we are dealing with a portable walking pad, it will be very difficult to move from one place to another. So it’s better to place where you are going to use it every day. And you will only have to unfold it when using it. Fortunately, two pulleys are designed in front of the machine, which makes it a lot easier to handle.
The usual storage can be placed under the coffee table, sofa or TV cabinet, which will not hinder your movement in the home.
The size of the machine after unfolding is similar to that of a yoga mat, a bit similar to a treadmill without armrests. Whether it is a living room, bedroom, or balcony, it should be easy to lay down.
The runway design uses high-density fiberboard. The upper conveyor track is divided into two layers, the inside and the outside, which are smooth and soft to the touch. Also, they can achieve the effects of shock absorption and joint protection.
When using for the first time, be sure to download the app and read the teaching instructions carefully, because this walking machine does not have a handrail and requires a slow adaptation process.
The use of the app is also relatively simple. After successfully connecting via Bluetooth, you can view all the movement data, including the kilometers traveled, the total time, and so on.
There are only two modes in the mode selection, manual and automatic. The manual gear can control the speed by itself, which is suitable for uniform jogging. The automatic gear will automatically adjust the speed according to your current movement.
If you are using it for the first time, be sure to select the manual mode and slowly accelerate through the remote control until you have a speed that suits you.
After getting familiar with it, we can turn on the maximum speed of this machine through the app, 6km/h (the default maximum speed before turning on is 3 km/h). You can adjust the speed by 0.5 km/step through the smartphone app or remote control.
The following is a speed test performed at one speed per 2kilometers per hour. The first is 2 km/h, you can see that it is in a slow walking effect.
Next is 4 km/h for fast walking.
The last 6 km/h can basically be described as a trot. If you don't practice for a long time, you must use this speed with caution. After all, it is easy for an accident without a handrail.
In the early stage, we may have some dizziness when using the walking machine. In fact, this is caused by visual errors, because our surrounding environment is stationary during exercise, which will make people uncomfortable! Just like some people are dizzy with 3D games. This symptom will gradually disappear after regular practice.
If you just run blindly, it will inevitably persist for too long. So you need to find some entertainment, many people will choose to watch TV, but this is not enough for us.
When WalkingPad Meets Fitness Adventure
So how to make the fitness effect more outstanding and full of fun. Our answer is walking machine + game ‘Fitness Ring Adventure’.
With this Golden Smith WalkingPad P1 in Fitness RingAdventure, you can use it to replace various parkours in the game.
Here we recommend the use of automatic transmission, which can be automatically adjusted according to your own running speed. So the game experience is closer to the real road feel.
When our movement reaches the maximum speed of the walking machine, we can see that the hair of the model in the picture has already ignited a flame. This means that the speed has reached its peak in the game.
In addition to the parkour in the game, you can also use the slow walking mode of the Golden Smith WalkingPad P1 to play some fun small games, such as this balance bar stroll. If you don’t have a walking machine, you can only step on the spot. But you have to know the game experience will be greatly reduced.
If you encounter a game mode that does not require walking, we can put a yoga mat next to the Golden Smith WalkingPad P1 to use it. Under the fitness mode that combines both the machine and the game, you will never feel bored.
In fact, exercise and fitness are simple and ubiquitous. Many times, the reason why people don't want to exercise is that you don't find fun in the process of exercise. And the sports model advocated by this GoldenSmith WalkingPad P1 is the combination of what you like to do and walking. So the exercise becomes less boring. What's even more valuable is that it does not require you to waste too much time and money in the gym. Just stay at home, this kind of exercise is not what many people now expect.
