Positives

Listed below, we have chosen the stand out positives based on our criteria found on our treadmill reviews page. Among this criteria we look at the ways a machine could potentially effect someones training in a good way. This generally ranges from exercise programs, incline, and design performance such as motor power and how spacious they are.

  • First of all, the 890 comes with a decline option which is not really common among lower budget models like the Crosswalk 5.2t from Weslo, but not unheard of among upper tier products. This is a great additional feature that will provide an extra challenge to the runner and help target different muscle fibers for better results. This can be set between zero and minus three.
  • Along with the decline settings comes the incline. This can be controlled between zero and fifteen degrees depending on how intensive you want your workout to be. Mixing up all of them – flat, decline, and incline on a consistent basis will provide much better results than flat alone.
  • Forty exercise apps is above the industry average in our view, eclipsing the 830 from Schwinn. The more of these apps included, the more ways to workout. Not to mention the tremendous amount of extra challenges that goes hand in hand with this.
  • A fifteen inch color tv and a ten inch touchscreen control panel are certainly among the highlights with easy to navigate menus and quick change options and buttons making it more user friendly.
  • Includes a good amount of cushioning in the deck thanks to surface response suspension technology that will do a great job in reducing impact on knee and ankle joints – Which is usually a common complaint from treadmill users.
  • Backed up by a excellent warranty policy with lifetime cover on the frame, lifetime warranty on the motor, five years on various parts, and two on labor.
  • Includes a fan to help keep you cool in those more intensive training sessions. Working inside can get hard, so the more comfortable you feel while doing so the better.

Negatives

  • Yes it includes plenty of great technology, but it also costs quite a bit of cash if our sources are anything to go by. This isn’t the go to option if you’re looking for a low priced machine.

Summary

The FreeMotion 890 makes a positive case for itself with an extensive range of technology that will only enhance anyone’s cardio training experience. The set of workout apps, incline / decline options, and durable structure are all plus points. One to keep your eye on if you’re after one for home use with all the bells and whistles.
