What the experts say
Fitness Push described the JTX 7 as a "classy" folding treadmill that delivered an impressive list of features. Its powerful motor meant it could reach a top speed of 20 KPH while still feeling sturdy. It also impressed with 40 built-in exercise routines plus the option to integrate with the likes of Polar and Kinomapp. A 3-year warranty was the icing on the cake. The only downside was the speaker performance is not as strong as other models on the market.
Review.it thought the JTX Sprint 7 was ideal for serious runners or those who want a more casual workout on a really sturdy machine. The 7-Inch LCD screen shows you all the relevant info, from heart rate to incline, while set up remains easy.

Really good solid machine. The running area is good and the belt operation is smooth. It’s easy to use and has a lot of options. The only downside is the fan. It is not powerful enough to have any impact, in fact you can hardly feel any air coming from it. It is a real shame as that is the only thing that lets it down. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase.
Great treadmill, not gym standard but for home use it's ideal and sturdy. Currently doing couch to 10k on it and it's brilliant. Customer service has been 10/10. The delivery was ontime and delivery men were super efficient. Highly recommend. Best purchase I've made in a long time!
Excellent treadmill, delivered as promised. Very heavy and sturdy and feels secure. I placed a 10mm mat under it to keep it in position and that works a treat. I have recommended the treadmill and jtx to several people its that good.
On the whole it’s a good treadmill. Belt is slipping quite a lot and we are having to adjust regularly. Fan is absolutely hopeless I am sorry to say. It might as well not be there and little thing, the cup holder isn’t big enough for a sports cup. However even with those little annoyances I am loving the fact that I could have my own treadmill at home for under £1000. It’s a real treat in this very strange time.
I've had this treadmill for a few months now and have been prompted to write a review. Rather than launch into an essay, I'll bullet point my observations. Positives Easy to assemble; Feels robust and seems to cope with me, a heavier runner. Large surface area to run on; Good speed range, from 2 to 20 kph. Heart Rate monitor reads easily. Negatives Fans are so weak they are ineffectual, I've fitted a wall fan separately; Display reads in 0.l km so I'm running a fair while before the next increment of progress is shown. This seems silly to have 3 digits before the decimal and only one after it . . . who runs more than 100km in one go? Donate a digit to allow 1/100 of a km readings. When tabbing between two different speeds, the conveyor seems to take a long time to damp down to the slower speed . . . when I'm shattered and really pushing interval training, this has caught me out! The plethora of pre-programmed options isn't really of any use! The treadmill purports to count calories. As there is no way to enter my weight, this cannot be accurate. Overall, I'm happy with my purchase. For the running side, it's great. Just with some minor design improvements it could have been amazing.
