Horizon products hitting floors this season bring several new technologies and features that are available on a variety of select models. Each of these, including eTRAK™ Performance Tracker technology, PERFECTview™ Adjustable display, In-Reach Control Pad™ and new wireless pedometer treadmills, have been carefully designed with the user in mind.
eTRAK™ Performance Tracker technology, found on select treadmills and elliptical trainers, allows users to monitor and evaluate a variety of workout statistics over the lifetime of the product. These statistics include incline, time, calories, pace, distance and speed and can be viewed in formats such as average workout, last workout, weekly total, monthly total and lifetime total. This technology was designed to give consumers a motivational, easy-to-use tool to monitor and track their fitness over time.
PERFECTview™ is a new display technology that allows users to adjust the console display for optimal viewing. Similar to a laptop computer screen, PERFECTview™ can be adjusted to achieve a viewing angle that is easy to read and reduces glare. This feature was designed for people who are above or below average in height, or perhaps have less than perfect eyesight.
The In-Reach Control Pad™ is a feature that allows users to adjust speed and incline settings without having to remove their hands from the handrail. This safety feature is designed for seniors and other treadmill users who like to hold the handrail while walking or jogging.
In addition to these new technologies and features, Horizon is rolling out two new wireless pedometer treadmills — WT951 and WT751. Both treadmills utilize a wireless pedometer to help integrate a user's daily activity with their treadmill workout. The treadmill user simply wears the included pedometer throughout daily activities to accurately monitor their step count. At the end of the day, with the push of a button, the user can wirelessly transmit the accumulated steps to the treadmill which then automatically adjusts the workout to achieve a predetermined fitness goal. Pre-programmed step programs range between 1,000 and 10,000 steps.
