What watts?

Do you know how much power your treadmill uses?

To ensure you know what to expect before or after you buy your treadmill, we want you to understand ‘what watts’ your treadmill uses in order to account for this in your monthly finances.  

What are watts?

Watts is what the power consumption of your treadmill is measured in. Basically, they determine how much electricity your treadmill is going to consume.

1000 W = 1 kW

‘Watt’ do I need to consider?

  • The size of the treadmill motor 
  • How often you use your treadmill
  • What speed you run at
  • The age of your treadmill 
  • Do you leave your treadmill on standby?
Stay on top of the maintenance of your treadmill to keep it running smoother for longer!

How do we work out the electricity costs when using your treadmill?

To calculate electricity costs it is important to have an understanding of the treadmill’s wattage and power usage.

You need to think about how often you use your treadmill over a month and then multiply this by the max or average treadmill wattage


Steady-state power at 10kph for a NoblePro Elite treadmill

0.570 kW x 15 hours a month = 8.55kWh


After doing this calculation, you can identify what it will add to your electricity bill (depending on what your provider charges).

British Gas currently charges 29.484p per kWh for electricity within the UK

For the example above
8.55kWh x 29.48p = £2.52 per month

Steady-state (kW)
6 kph continuously0.340
10 kph continuously0.570
20 kph continuously1.085
