We actually bought this treadmill and below you can see us unboxing it and setting it up. We are still using it after 6 months. It still runs perfectly fine without any issues. The connection cord is a bit loose but it’s not an issue since the treadmill itself is static. It’s really simple and easy to use. It would be great if it would store information on how many miles and calories you have burned.
Have a look at the images below.

Walkdesk WTD600 commercial treadmill desk
The Evocardio Walkdesk is built solely for use in the office. With a top speed of only 4km/h, a perfectly tuned drive train and a 3hp 4000RPM DC engine at the core, we’ve added a winner to our product range. We’ve replaced the cheaper melamine or phenolic deck materials used by our competitors with a 2.5 cm thick Bakelite deck. We’ve added guides to keep the walking belt from scraping the side rails and by shortening the deck we’ve gained precious office floor space. A cooling fan keeps the motor temperatures under control even if the treadmill is under round-the-clock use, but made it so silent you can’t even tell it’s running. Since no one will ever run or even walk briskly on a Walkdesk WTB500, we shortened the deck in order to gain back precious floor space that other units steal away. We even lowered the treadmill deck to maximize desk stability and minimize obstruction.
