Treadmills with HR sensors

Recommended Posts

What are some of the top treadmills that include reliable/accurate heart rate sensors? I have not been to the gym since the pandemic. The treadmills at my old gym had a HR sensor which was great because I have tachycardia and I was recently diagnosed with POTS (Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome).

Thanks for your question. Most treadmills from Sole and Horizon come with included chest strap heart rate monitors. These are meant to be worn against your skin for accurate readings. The treadmills also have built-in heart rate programs, too for heart rate training. I can suggest a specific model with some more information. How are you planning on using your treadmill? Do you want one for walking and/or running? How often and how long were you hoping to use it? What kind of space do you have for it? Do you need one that has a folding deck to save space? Do you want extra entertainment in addition to the onboard workouts? 

Treadmills from NordicTrack and ProForm also utilize heart rate training in their fitness subscription iFit which has guided workouts with a virtual trainer. These treadmills use an armband heart rate monitor, but it is sold separately. In our testing, we've found all of these brands that I've mentioned to be reliable and they make solid treadmills.
