Get Fit with a 10-inch Android Tablet? Yes, You Can!

| December 28, 2010 | Reply

If your New Years goal is to get back into shape and you’re a tech junkie, consider the ProForm Trailrunner 4.0 treadmill. Attached to it is a 10-inch tablet that lets you surf the web, check your email, and read the news as long as there’s wifi nearby. You can also check your workout stats and options, such as distance, time, speed, pulse, incline, pace, and calories burned. It’s also equipped with iFit Live, which allows users to track their progress. As if that wasn’t enough motivation, it has a built in speaker system, so you can rock out while you run! It’s $2,999, so it’s not exactly cheap–but if you were saving up for a new Android device, consider saving up a bit more towards this instead. Keep in mind, the 10-inch tablet isn’t detachable…so you might need to save towards both!

Looking for a New Year’s resolution to break? Look elsewhere. If you commit to banging out three solid miles on a Trailrunner 4.0 treadmill each day, there’s a better-than-average chance you’ll actually be able to do just that throughout 2011. In a presumed effort to keep nerds and internet junkies “in shape,” ProForm has slapped a 10-inch Android tablet (non-removable, sadly) up top, offering users the ability to check the news, browse their email and surf the web so long as a WiFi network is within range. Once you’re done with that, you can scroll through workout stats and options including speed, time, distance, calories burned, pulse, incline and pace. Moreover, it’s integrated with iFit Live in order to give users the ability to map their progress, and the inbuilt speaker system and auxiliary input lets you jam to your heart’s content, too. At $2,999, it’s hardly an impulse buy, but considering that you were already budgeting $500 for a new Android device… actually, nah, it’s still no bargain.
