Xiaomi WalkingPad A1 Review

Package Contents

The product packaging is particularly generous, in size, since the package contains the WalkingPad A1, 3 pin feeder, remote controller to set different speeds, lanyard e key for disassembly.

Design and construction quality

Regardless of any consideration of the product's functionality, it is undeniable that it is Xiaomi WalkingPad A1 is one of the most successful carpets both aesthetically and constructively (for this price range).

We find a product made up of ABS e aluminum alloy that thanks to the latter offers a dynamic and elegant design. Right on the aluminum front dashboard we have touch-sensitive touch controls and a display that shows the carpet's speed in kilometers per hour and meters traveled in real time. The body of the product is instead characterized by sliding platform in ABS.

As you will have understood, however, among the distinctive signs of the WalkingPad A1 there are particularly small dimensions. The product in fact weighs only 28 kg and is easily transportable thanks to the wheels on the front. Moreover, the measures of 143.2 x 54.7 x 12.9 cm allow the holder to be able to store it in practically any space. Beyond the length, negligible thanks to the central hinge, the strength in this sense are the only ones 12.9 cm in height: a little less than a smartphone!


Il WalkingPad A1 di Xiaomi, just as the name suggests, will only allow you to take more or less intense walks depending on the settings. In fact you will have the possibility to set well 11% of speed, from 0.5 km / h at 6 km / h. The pace that varies depending on the speed can be controlled directly by the remote control, ie the supplied remote control.

From this you will then have the opportunity to turn off and turn on the device and change the display on the display treadmill. We find ourselves - as you may have guessed - in the presence of a product with basic functionalities which, however, allows us to perform physical activity at home in an optimal manner without placing too much bulk. The only drawback from the functional point of view is paradoxically given precisely by the hinge that will cause you some discomfort if you used the carpet without shoes.

Being a product of Xiaomian, then, interaction with the dedicated app could not be missing. Directly from the Play Store and App Store you can download the app WalkingPad which will allow you to follow a tutorial on using the product and keep track of the training sessions.
