There is no one at OMA to send you a part, no one to help you replace it, so Amazon tells you to pack the entire treadmill up and ship it back. What if you threw away the box and packaging materials? It’s not a great situation and one that we really do not like.
The actual OMA treadmill is “pretty decent” for $1,699.
It has a good feeling treadmill deck and the frame and is sturdy. It has a well-located handle-bar position and was one of the more quiet machines we tested. The console is easy to read, with big electronics. The big console might be nice for older people, but we think most people will wonder “why is the screen so big?”
We felt like the huge display provided about the same amount of information as a Casio watch that Dell Griffith might have worn in the classic “Planes, Trains and Automobiles” movie in the 1980s.
“My initial thought when I looked at the console is, ‘It’s really huge,’” Big Guy Treadmill reviewer Big Mike Sullivan said. “For what you actually get, though, it’s very basic readouts. It probably could have been condensed into a much smaller space.”
“It’s doing really well walking on it,” Big Mike added during his YouTube review. “It’s actually a pretty quiet treadmill. There’s a lot of room on the deck.”
Another drawback is the OMA is very slow to speed up from 2 mph to 8 mph (31.23 seconds).
