YDZJY Walking Pad/Under Desk Treadmill is a lightweight and rather compact walking pad/treadmill that can be used for walking and very light jogging.

YDZJY Walking Pad Features and Specifications
YDZJY Walking Pad is powered by a relatively quiet 2.5 HP (peak HP) electric motor, ensuring a speed range of 0.6 to 3.8 mph (~1 - 6 km/h), which is fast enough for walking and maybe slow jogging.
Note: if you are looking for a running treadmill, this is not a model for you. But users looking for walking compact treadmills should definitely consider this model.
The physical dimensions of the treadmill are (L x W x H) 50 x 20.9 x 4.6 inches (~127 x 53 x 11.7 cm), and it weighs just 44 pounds (~20 kg).
The running belt features physical dimensions of 40 x 16 inches (101 x 40.6 cm) and is large enough for comfortable walking. People with smaller strides may try to jog slowly, but that is not what this treadmill/walking pad is all about (despite sometimes being advertised as good for jogging).
The running/walking belt features a 5-layer anti-slip design, offering a very comfortable surface for walking.
The maximum supported user weight is 300 pounds (~136 kg) - personally, while the treadmill officially may support 300 pounds users, users up to 220 pounds (100kg) can use this treadmill comfortably, heavier users should use it only as a walk-only treadmill.
YDZJY Walking Pad/Under Desk Treadmill features a large LED display with easily readable session parameters, including speed, time, distance, and calories.
Note: calorie counters on units like this are not the most accurate, but they give the user one more parameter to monitor and compare with previous exercises.
The unit is controlled via a remote controller, allowing the user to set/change parameters even during the exercise.
Due to its dimensions, YDZJY Walking Pad doesn't feature variable incline - most units in this class don't have this feature.
The unit comes in several colors (black, white, gray). Also, when the unit arrives, it is (almost) fully assembled - when the unit arrives, be sure to read the manual/Owner's Guide to familiarize yourself with your new treadmill.
YDZJY walking treadmill is very easy to store - when you are done with your cardio workout, just slide it under the bed. Or lift it against the wall.
Note: while the unit is stable when stored vertically, personally, I would never do it, and I don't recommend such storage, especially if you have pets and kids. If the walking pad/treadmill is stored vertically, if it is pushed with sufficient force (pets/kids playing, for example), it can fall, hurt somebody and damage something, itself included. Just my 2c.
How To Use YDZJY Walking Pad/Under Desk Treadmill
The good thing about this and similar units is that they can be used in many situations, even during work.
So, slide your YDZJY walking pad under the elevated desk and walk while doing simpler office tasks. This allows the user to burn plenty of calories while working at the same time.
This is great, but in real life, seldom one has a chance to do "simpler office tasks" and to walk at the same time.
But, YDZJY walking pad is excellent for walking while watching TV for example - if you are watching your favorite show, football game, movie, or similar, place the walking treadmill in front of the TV and walk while watching the TV.
For example, a user that is walking at 2.5 mph (4 km/h) pace, he/she is burning 3 kcal/kgh.
If such a user weighs 100kg (220 pounds) and is watching a 2-hour movie, and walks at a 2.5 mph pace, the user will burn 600 kcal easily, without overstressing the body.
If that user watches that movie from the couch, the user will burn 140-180 kcal (just to sustain the body alive).
This ~440 kcal difference on a regular/daily basis means a lot in terms of body weight and stamina level.
YDZJY Walking Pad Maintenance
YDZJY Walking Pad is very easy to use and maintain.
Generally, the unit must be kept clean and the belt well lubricated.
To protect the unit from floor dirt and to protect the floors from the damage caused by the treadmill, use a good treadmill mat.
Also, regularly check the running/walking belt and adjust the tension if required.
Note: again, for the exact procedures, check the Owner's Guide.
Long Story Short: If You are looking for a walking pad or compact walking under desk/bed treadmill, consider this model.
It is rather popular, comes at an acceptable price, has good load capacity, the belt is fast enough for power walks, can be stored under most beds, it is not too noisy, etc.
