The Famistar M7 Plus is a foldable treadmill that can be easily assembled due to its 83 lb. light weight. It has a recommended user maximum weight of 300 lbs., but we would not suggest heavy users come close to this treadmill. If you purchase from Walmart there is a 30 day return guarantee while Ebay offers 1 year manufacture warranty but does not specify what exactly is covered. Perusal of the Famistar website is no help at all so if you decide to purchase, make sure you verify warranty coverage. The lack of information suggests this machine will not last long with continued use. A light casual walker might get a year of use with proper care and maintenance. Famistar models we have purchased in the past had 90 days or less of a warranty.
The Famistar M7 Plus is a starter treadmill that has quite a few decent features for this price range. It offers a small footprint and is space conscious almost to the point of not being there due to its light weight and foldable features. As with any treadmill offering in the lower price ranges, it is a gamble on how long the treadmill will last with any type of continued use.
The Famistar M7 Plus is a decent choice for beginning walkers who are budget conscious and neither heavy nor tall. The M7 Plus is a great way to get in shape and stay motivated. Not only will it help you lose weight, but the 2.25 HP motor with 8 MPH max speed ensures that cardio endurance levels are increased while using this treadmill for walking during your workouts at home. There is a hydraulic cylinder that assists in folding and lowering the machine to keep damage to a minimum and you get a free pair of knee straps with your purchase. The Famistar M7 Plus has 3 manual incline levels and 12 preset programs to help build your walking endurance levels. The 17” x 48” of workout area is more for the shorter human who does not have long strides while the handlebars contain speed buttons and heart rate pulse sensors to help the user maintain their workout levels. There is a tiny 3.5” LCD display screen that tracks distance, speed, time, calorie burnt, heart rate, and programs.

The Famistar M7 Plus is a basic folding treadmill meant for beginning users who do not plan on going faster than a brisk walk. It compares favorably with other treadmills in its price range except for warranty coverage which could be a game changer since other treadmills offer lifetime warranties on frames which is a plus for the discerning buyer. Entertainment features are bare to the bone on the M7 so be sure to check out other treadmill models before purchasing.
