Walking pads are offered with a variety of features and benefits, each one designed to help users move, walk, and run even as they do their day-to-day work.

What Makes the Best Walking Pad?

Different walking pads have different features, so you need to understand the features that are important to you so you can find the walking pad that has exactly those features. Below, we’ve outlined three of the most important features you might want to consider when shopping for a walking pad.

So you can run, not just walk: A wide speed range

Different walking pads offer different speeds, and this determines how much you can do when using the pad. Higher speeds mean that you can do more intense workout on the pad, like a proper run. Meanwhile, if the speed is limited, you will also be limited to a walk, or perhaps a light jog or run.

It’s important to understand your need. Are you a beginner? If you are, you won’t likely be keen on running heavily at this point. However, if you are looking to build a progressing fitness routine using your walking pad, then getting one with higher speeds is preferable.

So you can have colleagues and friends use the pads, too: A high weight capacity

The same way walking pads have different speeds, they also have different weight capacities—some can carry more load than others. If you have a shared workspace and several colleagues using the same desk and will likely share the same walking pad, you may need to consider the weight of other users. If there are users who are bigger than you, make sure that you choose a pad that can handle higher load.

So you can run comfortably and build the habit easily: A high-quality running belt

The belt of a walking pad affects both your comfort and safety, as well as the longevity of the pad. Invest in one that is strong enough to withstand the daily stress brought by the contact between your feet and the belt surface. In the same way, find a walking pad with a belt capable of absorbing the shock and pressure brought by the contact between your feet and the belt surface. This will ensure your joints and muscles are protected from the pressure of walking or running.
