Sunny Health & Fitness has been churning out decent entry level treadmills for quite some time now. And with the release of the T7615 model, they continue their good form by providing reliable exercise machines. The T7615 shares some core fundamental features with the T7613 and T7614 model.
The Sunny Health & Fitness T7615 Magnetic Treadmill has dimensions amounting to 53.5 inches of length, 35.25 inches of width, and 52.5 inches of height respectively. The machine has a space saving fold design that allows you to fold the treadmill every time you are done using it and slide it under a bed or a storage room in order to free up space. When folded, the product measures at 21 inches of length, 35.25 inches of width and 52 inches of height. The T7615 model has a running surface measuring at 41.7 inches length and 13.4 inches width making it good enough for walking and light jogging but too narrow for those with full stride and a large running action.
The Sunny Health & Fitness T7615 Magnetic Treadmill has a display features that helps track elapsed time, total speed, distance covered, and number of calories burned. It also has scan mode that allows the readings to run repeatedly while you work out thus aiding you to keep track of your progress without having to fret about manually checking each reading. The treadmill also has the sophisticated feature of pulse grip monitors found on the handrails. The sensors will sense your pulse and use it to determine your heart rate, giving you an accurate or close to accurate tracking of your heartbeat and subsequent burning of calories. One of the machine’s highlight is the belt’s feature that allows you to select between eight adjustable magnetic tensions which will create a certain resistance in the belt while you’re working out in order to give you the necessary intensity to push yourself and inch one step closer to your fitness goals.
Construction & Hardware
The Sunny Health & Fitness T7615 Magnetic Treadmill is solidly built and weighs 69.5 pounds with a weight capacity of 220 pounds. The frame is solid steel and durable. Owing to its inexpensive price, the treadmill is not equipped with any motor and is in fact manual which means that the belt will run through the momentum of your strides alone so the general speed and pace of the belt depends entirely on the user and just how much they’re pushing their feet. The Sunny Health & Fitness T7615 Magnetic Treadmill also has a default incline angle of 9 degrees which is roughly 11.9%. The incline can not be manually adjusted so you’re stuck with the default slope. Combined with the magnetic resistance feature provided by the treadmill, the slop of the incline will give you one hell of an intense workout but the downside to this is that there will be days where you won’t be feeling towards having a very intense training session but the lack of incline feature will leave you no choice but to suck it up and continue. The T7615 model is also equipped with dual 6 inch flywheels that keep the running belt moving smoothly and consistently for a much better workout.
Having seen all the aforementioned features, let us weigh the pros and cons.
The Sunny Health & Fitness T7615 Magnetic Treadmill is a moderately good treadmill with its fair share of flaws. Sure the running surface is short and narrow and the lack of incline options are a bit of a let down but that is to be totally expected of a machine that costs less than market treadmills. And yet with the features that it does have, the treadmill proves itself to be reliable and offers a good plethora of features that ensure that if you use your money to buy this treadmill, it sure won’t be money wasted.
