Xiaomi Walking Pad A1 Review - The Living Room Treadmill

The Xiaomi Walking Pad A1, or the Xiaomi treadmill, is loved immediately after discarding it. Just connect it to the power outlet (with adapter) and you will be ready to get back in shape, walking in front of your favorite TV series!

Xiaomi Walking pad A1 - Features

The small dimensions make it an accessory suitable for every home. It is in fact possible to fold it completely on itself bringing the overall dimensions from 142x54cm (from open) to 82x54cm with a thickness of 13cm that allows you to store the carpet under a table or a sofa. The aluminum alloy structure holds its weight only 28kg and the comfortable wheels allow it to be transported without particular effort. It is not designed to be stored vertically in an autonomous way but it is still possible to place it (eg on a wall, behind a door).

Xiaomi Youpin Walking pad Treadmill

La declared maximum flow is 90kg and the express speed ranges from 0,5km / h to 6km / h. For safety reasons, the maximum speed can only be reached after completing the introductory tutorial which also describes all its features. It is possible to perform the unlocking procedure also via remote control.

If you are looking for something faster I suggest you read the review of the Xiaomi Walking pad R1.

The walking pad, as well as through the app, it can be controlled remotely via a convenient and small remote control which is also equipped with a silicone strap for attaching to the wrist. Through the remote control it is possible to control all the functions: ignition, mode change, speed variation.

The LED display, beautiful readable and positioned in the front, shows in English (also in the Chinese version of the product !!) all information from the session run. Alternatively, you can read the speed, duration, steps, calories consumed and distance traveled.

Immediately below the display are 3 lights that notify the various statuses of the device: StandBy / Auto Mode / Manual Mode). There is also a light that notifies the remote connection with the app.

Xiaomi Walking pad - Operation

We have 2 modes of use available, selectable from the remote control or via the button on the right in the front side.

Review #Xiaomi Youpin Walking Pad - The wonderful Treadmill from the living room

In the  manual mode each operation can be managed in a completely "free" way by means of the remote control, by adjusting the pace speed as well as the end of the run session. Through the app it is also possible, however, to set the "smart" start / stop on the pad.

The real gem of this device is the automatic mode: sensors located in the front and back, will detect any changes in the pace of the pace, adapting the speed of the treadmill in an adaptive way. It is therefore also possible to start the treadmill simply by stopping at the front and stop it by backing up at the back. In this mode the remote control becomes superfluous but we always recommend wearing it for security reasons.

The mechanism is in itself brilliant, because if we "impose" a faster rhythm to the mat we will easily find ourselves in the front part of the same automatically activating a speed increase. On the other hand, if we find ourselves in trouble, we will be led backwards, activating instead the decrease in speed.

Initially this mode could be a little tricky but after some use you can interact in perfect symbiosis with the machine. You can still adjust the sensitivity of this feature via the app as there are three different levels available depending on your pitch and weight.

Xiaomi Walking pad - Companion App

Another strength of the treadmill is the integration with the Xiaomi ecosystem, it is indeed the MiHome app that manages the device.

Through the companion app you can view live data during a session and also keep track of everything the history of previous sessions, grouped by days, weeks or months, similar to the MiFit app.

There are many possible customizations:

  • Maximum speed limit setting
  • Default speed in manual mode
  • Type of startup in manual mode (sensors on the mat or remote control)
  • Sensitivity of automatic mode
  • Information shown on the display (time, speed, distance, calories, steps)
  • Child block
  • Personal information (gender, weight, height, age)

Included with the purchase there is also an insurance policy but for the moment it is only valid in China.

Finally, there is a calibration function which, by using the hexagonal key supplied, allows you to calibrate (return to the center) the carpet.

Xiaomi Walking pad - Conclusions

In spite of the unthinkable size and minimalist design, the Xiaomi treadmill provides excellent performance and ease of use for everyone. It can be stored and taken back in a few minutes, guaranteeing in comfort, our daily dose of exercise even on rainy days ... comfortably in front of the TV.

I need help . It is normal for my C1 to make a noise when I walk in the middle, where there is the crease, like if there is something underneath that touches, so calibration does not make any noise, only when I walk on it and only in the middle, if walking in front or behind does not do ... what can depend on. Thanks

Hello, today the xiaomi treadmill arrived and there is no way to configure it on my Mihome app with China server. I have a lot of devices configured with mihome, including the roborock s50, but there is no way with that. In practice, the wifi of the mat does not see me and therefore the mat itself. I wrote to Banggood to understand how to do the repair, as they gave it a two-year warranty. Do you have any suggestions for me in this regard? Thanks

Thanks Simone, unfortunately I continue to do it as per instructions, but nothing to do. I don't know how to fix. I have also written to Bangood to understand how the assistance and return costs work that could be reimbursed by PayPal. But I would love to resolve. I don't know if there is anyone who has had my identical problem and how they got it solved.

Me too nothing to do with the mihome application - you have to try with the "Walkingpad" application https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.walkingpad.app&gl=IT
to me with this app has finally worked. as I understand it maybe there are different types of tapin rulan. try to download registered, and follow the procedure that indicates you. let me know

Thanks for support. Unfortunately I also tried with the app you suggested, but there is no way to pair it, despite the BT you see, but the app gets stuck with the famous wheel. I am also in contact with the developers of this app, who will need to let me know. Probably my walking Pad, global version, is only equipped with a BT module which, unfortunately, does not connect to the app. It would be enough to unlock these cabbages of 6km / h. Did she connect to you right away?

I too no way to see it in the MiHome, but it works perfectly with the Walingpad app.
From what I understand, the carpet that came to me 2 days ago, taken on Banggood is bluetooth and not WiFi (I understand it because if you turn off the bluetooth and use the Walkingpad app it asks you to turn it on…).
Has anyone managed to connect it to the MiHome?

From what I understand, mine is also without wifi and it came to me three days ago from bangood. So put your soul in peace as you will not be able to connect it mihome. Instead, I kindly ask you to explain to me how you managed to connect with the BT through its app as to me it sees the carpet, but does not connect, remaining the wheel waiting for connection. If I don't log in, I don't unlock a cabbage. Do you have an iPhone? In short, any advice would be very welcome. Thanks

Ah ok, so no WiFi. But you know ... in the end it was more of a blowjob since I am sick Xiaomi and I have everything domoticed, because his app is fine like this. I would have liked more than anything else that it connected to the MiFit since I already have Miband 4 and Mi Scale (the Xiaomi scale), so I keep an eye on weight, steps, etc. (and I won't tell you ... in the past I also had Xiaomi shoes that connected, I just need the vibrator ... 😉). That said, bluetooth devices often have a tantrum, and not because they are Xiaomi. I have Android (Honor 9)... Read the rest »

Hello, The walking pad stops at a maximum speed of 3 km / h. I look for the way, through the app, to increase this limit wanting to bring it to 6 km / h, but I didn't succeed. Can anyone help me please? Keeping the walking pad at 3 km / hour is of no use to me!

Hi Andrea,

Did you manage to connect it to the App? If I know, can you explain me:
-which Operating system you use on your phone? Android or Apple?
-You set the phone's region to China?
-I notice the red flashing WiFi symbol work, can even connect to it, but next the App (Walking Pad) can't find the device when looking for it.

Honestly, I didn't quite understand how I did it ... I re-downloaded the mi home app and set China as a country ... Then I activated WiFi and hotspot and connected to the walkingpad ... I'm not sure but it probably started working when activated the hotspot ... When you connect it to the app then it lets you unlock it after you have used it for a while

Shipped on 7/1 it arrived on 12/3, after an initial phase in which the package moved by train to Europe and the tracking did its duty, from 28/1 the tracking stopped (probably due to customs) for more than a month and finally unlocked with fast UPS delivery.
After the first few days of use I am fully satisfied, bends smoothly and I had no configuration problems, if anything I ask if you have any idea how to proceed with maintenance, in particular how and how often to lubricate?

The dispatch emails from the United States 40-50 days to arrive. You can track the shipment all the way from China The slow part is when the train is on. Mine went to UPS in Hungary and then Germany and then arrived in the UK very quickly. You just got to be patient but the wait is worth it... Read the rest »
