The OVICX Q2S is one of the treadmills released in 2020. In terms of features, it can be compared with the Sunny Health & Fitness SF-T7946 but has a different design, folding system, and shock absorption system. It also offers a slightly superior speed range. It’s a machine made for home use, intended for walking and jogging.

Frame construction

One of the most important features of the OVICX Q2S treadmill is its portability. The machine features a fold-flat design, allowing the two upright bars with the side arm grips to fold down over the deck. This results in a very slim packing and superior storage possibilities. In other words, you can even store it under a bed if there is a clearance of at least 10″ (25 cm). Also, its front section has two folding foot stabilizers which offer the possibility to store the machine vertically.

With the frame unfolded and set for exercising, the treadmill is not too large either. However, it does take approx. 65″L x 25″W (165 x 65 cm) of floor space. Plus, it is recommended to leave at least two feet of clearance on each side of the deck, and at least three feet of clearance behind the machine for safe usage and easy access.

Although the OVICX treadmill has a slim construction, it is not exactly lightweight. Its net weight is approx. 94.8 lbs (43 kg). Therefore, the packaged unit should be carried by two persons. However, once the treadmill is unboxed, it can easily be carried by only one person. Its front base integrates two small wheels that facilitate its relocation. Considering that most of the machine’s weight is packed into its deck, the treadmill has a low center of gravity when set up for exercising. Thus, it provides excellent stability.

Needless to say, the machine’s frame is made of steel. The deck frame and the two upright bars are made of rectangular tubing, coated with a corrosion-resistant paint finish. However, the console dashboard, the motor cover, and several other covers are made of durable thermoplastic material.

Deck construction and running surface

The OVICX Q2S offers a fairly decent running surface for a small treadmill. It is approx. 49.2″ (125 cm) long, and 16.9″ (43 cm) wide. Therefore, it should accommodate users up to 6’0″ (183 cm) for all workouts, or even taller users, if it is only used for walking. Also, the deck is rated for a maximum user weight limit of 264 lbs (120 kg).

The machine’s belt is multi-layered, with its top layer rubberized for an improved grip. The exact diameter of the rollers that set the belt in motion is not specified. But they integrate high-grade ball bearings for a smooth belt motion. The side covers of the running platform feature a textured surface for improved foot stability.

The treadmill’s deck is equipped with the Silkworm Shock Absorption Technology. In other words, the base of the machine rests on six high-density foam stabilizers which also act as shock absorption elements. This being said, the machine should provide a more comfortable walking, jogging, or running, as it reduces the impact on your knees and ankles.

The OVICX Q2S treadmill doesn’t have an incline system. The running platform is perfectly horizontal when the machine is set for exercising. The deck is also pretty slim, so the step-up height is only approx. 4″ (10 cm). Therefore, you shouldn’t have to worry about ceiling height issues.

Drive motor

The OVICX Q2S treadmill is an electric treadmill equipped with a 3.0 HP (peak power) motor. It offers a speed range between 0.6 MPH and 8.7 MPH and is designed to provide a continuous belt motion during prolonged workouts even if the user is close to the maximum 264 lbs (120 kg) capacity. Evidently, it comes with a power cord that connects to the front base section of the machine. There is also an On/Off switch next to the connection port of the power cord.

The speed adjustment increments are 0.1 kph. Therefore, the transition from a level to another is done smoothly without jerks or sudden changes, so you can easily adapt your pace. The console doesn’t have quick selection keys for certain speed levels. This can be considered a downside as it takes quite a bit to increase the speed to the highest settings. But the speed adjustment buttons have a double function. A short press increases the speed by 0.1 kph, while if you press and hold the button, the speed will increase faster.

In terms of speed adjustment, the treadmill also has a function that allows a quick switch between walking speed and the previous speed setting, which can be quite useful for interval workouts.

The motor itself is fairly quiet. It doesn’t generate a lot of noise when in use, but depending on your weight, running technique, floor material, and other factors, your cadence during running may generate more or less noise.

Console

The OVICX Q2S treadmill is equipped with a fairly simple console. It features an LED display with three windows that indicate (from left to right) speed, time, and calories/distance/pulse. Speed and distance are shown in kph and kilometers. You cannot change the units to English from the console. Thus, the maximum speed is 14 kph (which is equivalent to approx. 8.7 MPH).

For pulse reading, the console has metallic sensors placed two on each side of the display. You can hold on to them if you want the console to read your pulse. Unfortunately, the console cannot read your pulse from a wireless HR transmitter, or Bluetooth device. So, holding on to the incorporated sensors is the only way to have your pulse monitored.

Although the console doesn’t have its own workout programs, it does have built-in Bluetooth. Therefore, you can sync it with your smartphone via the FitShow App which not only can keep track of your workout history, it also offers features like workout goals, and programs. If you sync your phone with the treadmill, you can also control the speed from your phone.

The console doesn’t have features like incorporated speakers or a workout fan. However, a device holder is included with the machine. This can be connected to the top part of the console and serve as support for your phone or tablet.

Assembly and Maintenance

The OVICX Q2S treadmill comes pre-assembled. You only have to unbox it, unfold it, secure the upright bars and the arm rests in usable position, plug it in, turn it on, and connect the safety key in order for it to start. This shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes.

For maintenance, the deck requires periodic lubrication. It comes pre-lubricated from the factory though, and shouldn’t require lubrication before the first use. The manual provides instruction on how to lubricate the belt and how often, depending on how much the treadmill is used. A bottle of lubricant is also included. Other than this, you only have to keep the machine clean, especially the belt, to prevent any debris from being caught in the motor.
