Treadmill Review

Updated: August 4, 2023

Add walking to your work routine and maybe a pop of color! The WalkingPad C2 comes in white, black, blue, yellow, and red. The treadmill is small and folds in the middle of the deck. The C2 fits in small spaces due to its minimal footprint. The WalkingPad C2 is great for working from home or walkers who need to hide a treadmill out of sight when not in use. The C2 is remote-controlled, allowing users to easily control the treadmill settings. This WalkingPad C2 Under Desk Treadmill review helps you decide if this treadmill is the right fit for your work day.

Who The WalkingPad C2 Treadmill Is Best For:

  • WFH Exercisers: The WalkingPad C2 is a small treadmill built to slide right under your standing desk and then fold compactly when you are done. It upgrades your work day!
  • Step-Counting Walkers: The C2 keeps track of your steps so you can focus on your work.
  • Small Space Owners: Treadmills don’t have to domineer your space. The C2 takes up minimal space and folds away when you don’t need it.
  • Multi-taskers: You don’t have to be working to use the C2. It can also quietly allow you to exercise when you are doing any number of things, like watching TV or doing stationary chores.
  • Anyone Who Loves a Pop of Color: Most treadmills are only offered in boring colors like black, white, or gray. The C2 stands out with its red, blue, and yellow options.

Treadmill Review Of The WalkingPad C2

Build Quality


The WalkingPad C2 uses ABS plastics. The frame comes in five different colors: white, black, red, yellow, and blue. The colors are all priced the same, which I greatly appreciate. If you have a color scheme or vibe you are trying to match, the C2 makes that a bit easier. Choosing one of the unique color options also helps the treadmill feel a bit more personalized instead of industrial.

The C2 has adjustable plastic feet. If your floor isn’t quite flat, the C2 can be adjusted so it will not wobble as much.


The motor is brushless, which helps the WalkingPad C2 stay quiet. To protect the motor, do not store the WalkingPad C2 upright or on its side. A horizontal orientation is best for the motor’s longevity.

Running Surface

The 47.2” x 15.8” walking belt provides plenty of room for walking. The deck is built on a high-density fiberboard with an EVA cushioning layer and a wear-resistant layer added on top. The belt itself is textured and designed to minimize static. I had no problems with the belt slipping or my foot slipping on the belt. As long as the treadmill is properly positioned under your desk, you should not hit the motor hood. The belt also feels wide enough that I am not executing a balancing act trying to remain on it. Additionally, the running surface is only a couple of inches high, so most users should have no problem stepping up onto it.


The WalkingPad C2’s deck folds in half for a folded size that fits under a bed, couch, or back under the desk. As stated previously, the treadmill should be stored in a horizontal position only. The treadmill weighs only 55 pounds and can be rolled easily on its two transport wheels. Medium and high pile carpet may make the treadmill more difficult to wheel around. Some users will be able to carry the treadmill from one location to another.

Auto Mode

The WalkingPad C2 can be placed in automatic walking mode, which allows users to control the belt speed with their feet. If you walk near the motor hood, the belt will accelerate. Walking in the middle will stabilize the speed while walking near the back of the deck slows and stops the belt. The length of the treadmill makes this feature difficult to master. Some users may be able to get good use out of the feature, but I think most will prefer the manual mode. Regardless, it is no detriment to the treadmill to include automatic mode.

Features & Accessories

The WalkingPad C2 is a compact under-desk treadmill with features to match its minimal design. There is no console, so there are very few superfluous features to take up even more space in your home or office. The WalkingPad C2 has just what you need.


The WalkingPad C2 has an LED screen on the motor hood to display time, speed, distance, calories, and steps. The screen is difficult to see while you are walking and working at a desk. To fix this, you can use the KS Fit app to view metrics instead.


The WalkingPad C2 has a remote that comes with a wrist strap. You can loop it around your wrist, slip it into a pocket, or set it on your desk. The remote is easy to use. The plus and minus buttons speed up and slow down the belt, the center button starts or stops the belt, and the bottom button switches the treadmill from manual to automatic walking mode. If you are as prone to losing your remote as often as I am, you can control the treadmill with the KS Fit app instead.


The WalkingPad C2 is a good under-desk treadmill. Unfolding the deck for use is easy, but it can be a bit jarring due to the loud noise the deck makes if not supported. You can lower the deck to the ground softly, which requires a bit of skill. You have to push down on the deck and support the bottom of it so it doesn’t clang down. If you don’t support the deck, it won’t hurt the treadmill; it is just a bit loud.

Walking on the C2 is just as you might imagine. I did not have to worry about stepping off the side or ends of the treadmill, because the walking belt has plenty of space. The deck sits really close to the ground, so you can step off quickly if you need to. The only complaint I have about the manual mode walking experience is the loud beep the treadmill makes when its settings are adjusted. If you are walking at a continuous pace, you won’t have this issue. Unfortunately, the treadmill beeps loudly whenever you change speed or start/stop the belt. I wish this feature could be turned off. I tested the C2 while working next to other reviewers, and I frequently worried I was bothering my coworkers.

The underfoot experience is nice. The deck feels pretty smooth considering it folds in half. The seam isn’t that noticeable. WalkingPad’s treadmills seem to range from noticeable to not noticeable belt seams, and the C2 is on the latter side, thankfully. The walking surface isn’t very soft, but it is very comfortable and offers great stability. I was very happy to see how accurately the WalkingPad C2 counted my steps. It is a really handy feature for anyone trying to reach a step goal. Overall, I think the WalkingPad C2 performs just as it needs to.

Training Options

The WalkingPad C2 does not have onboard content. It doesn’t really need it as the main function of this treadmill is to let you walk at a desk. The C2 is more of a multi-tasking treadmill rather than for training hard. It isn’t the main event, and that’s okay.

The C2 pairs with the KS Fit app. In fact, you have to pair the app with the treadmill when you first get it to unlock the treadmill’s top speed. I don’t love that WalkingPad forces its customers to install the app even if just for a short time. The app does have some nice features. It can replace the remote, which is useful if you lose the remote or want to adjust the treadmill speed while viewing the metrics. There are a few other features in the KS Fit app, like a child lock to prevent the treadmill from being started. The app is basic and doesn’t have training videos. It does have a walking challenge you can join. You can also view all of your past workouts to see how you progress.

Bottom Line Review of the WalkingPad C2 Under Desk Treadmill

The WalkingPad C2 is a fun under-desk treadmill. It has a minimal footprint and an easy-folded size. The WalkingPad C2 can easily be wheeled in and out of your office space. Unfolding the treadmill and adjusting its speed settings can be a little loud, which were the most disruptive flaws in the C2. Yet, it still functions very well and met my needs while walking in an office with multiple other employees. Perhaps my favorite part of the C2 is the five different colors it comes in, including red, blue, and yellow for users who want a more personalized treadmill.
