Smart-Review Commentary: The Weslo Cadence G 5.9i is a basic light duty, no frills low priced entry level compact treadmill. It is suitable for walking and jogging. Since it folds up, it is ideal for areas where you can’t leave the treadmill open at all times. The treadmill has a 2.25hp motor which is good for this price range. If you are doing very heavy running/jogging and are near the 275 weight limit, you may want to look at a treadmill with a stronger 3.0 HP motor, and higher max weight.

The treadmill was recently upgraded with Bluetooth and iFit capability. You can use your tablet to link in to iFit workouts (with iFit membership). Thousands of interactive workouts. You don’t need an iFit subscription to use the treadmill, as it has built-in programs.

This treadmill is not suitable if you are very tall, as you would want a longer running deck for full strides. This model is great for those of medium height or lower. The G 5.9i is a Smart-Review Top Pick and a great value for the money for entry level treadmills. It has received very good reviews for an inexpensive treadmill. This is currently only one of two treadmills we cover in the under $500 category, and is a SmartReview.com Top Pick.

Quick Tip: **When you first get this treadmill, hold the Bluetooth Button for 20 seconds to activate console **
