Conclusions

The Smooth 5.65 2011 treadmill has created some waves amongst light joggers and walkers. This is a rather cheap machine, of good quality and with attractive features. We recommend it to those who want to stay fit, to light joggers and daily walkers.

This model has a pack of advantages that not only make it a good treadmill, but also differentiate it from others.

First off, this is a good quality treadmill. It is very important to go for a treadmill with quality components. The warranty pack is a primary sign of the treadmill’s quality. This model has lifetime for frame and motor, 3 years for parts and electronics and 2 years for in-home labor, a satisfying warranty for a treadmill priced under $1000.

The running surface is advantageous, but only for light joggers and casual walkers. Professional athletes will go for some other model, a more appropriate treadmill that can meet their needs. Also, due to the available running surface, very tall users can’t decide for this treadmill.

This is a solid treadmill with a quiet motor, which is an important asset and is also surprising for a budget treadmill. And the cushioning system adds up to the comfort that the Smooth 5.65 provides.

Also, the deluxe sound system is a pro. It works great and we haven’t encountered any issues yet. It just made tough workouts much more enjoyable.

Another advantage represents the handlebars toggle switches. You can adjust speed and incline without interrupting your workouts. Just grasp the handlebars and set the speed and incline while continuing your workouts. And talking of workouts, there are 13 preset workouts you can choose from, or you can make your own program to greet your fitness requirements.

This is a solid machine, but the advantage is that you can fold it, in order to save the space you use to assemble it. And there is also a two-speed fan available, so that you can cool off at any time during intense workouts.

We haven’t encountered any problems so far with this model, as happened with the rest of the Smooth models we’ve tested to date. The 5.65 is a remake after the 5.45 and it keeps the basic features of the later. The additional features make it the rising star of Smooth that has already been labeled as “Best Buy” by other reviewers. And this really is a best buy, given the balance between the features and the price.
