Yowza Daytona Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
Best machine in the Yowza lineup runs into one of the most competitive price ranges filled with good competitors.
A very solid machine that is well worth it if you can get a discount.
The Yowza Daytona is a quality treadmill. It's the best model that Yowza has to offer. Unfortunately, at $1,999, it faces some serious competition. There are a lot of great options at this price point, and many of them are better than the Daytona. If you can get this machine at a discount, however, we see no reason not to buy it.
The walking area is a good size. The belt measures in at 20" x 60", which is the standard size for walking belts on today's treadmills. This should provide plenty of room for larger users to run on comfortably without altering their stride.
A decent motor powers this machine, but you can find a few treadmills that have better power producing capabilities selling for several hundred dollars less than this one if you know where to look. Speeds of up to 11 mph are attainable, so most users will have no problem challenging themselves.
A cushioning system that is pretty good comes on this model. A Patented Swing Arm with Progressive Shock Absorption Deck is used to reduce the impact on your joints and back. While many of the treadmills in this price range have a similarly forgiving and durable walking surfaces, there are several models selling for $800 less that feature slightly better cushioning systems.
As far as projected reliability is concerned, this machine is good, but this price range is filled with treadmills that are significantly more durable. The quality of parts is also nice, while unimpressive at this high of a cost.
The warranty on the Yowza Daytona is good. In-home labor is covered for 2 years, parts and electronics are covered for 5 years, and the frame and motor are covered for life. This is the kind of coverage you expect to see on a durable treadmill.
