Pros and cons
- A treadmill that's actually nice to look at!
- Netflix and Spotify come pre-loaded to take your mind off those aching legs...
- Plenty of pre-set programmes and slots to devise your own.
- A motor that's likely to provide lasting power and speed.
- Auto stop safety system.
- "SoftDrop" hydraulic folding and unfolding.
- Bluetooth doesn't come as standard (although bluetooth-enabled versions are available).
- The angle of the track when folded means that it still takes up a fair bit of space when not in use.

Looking for a treadmill that goes with your coffee table? Probably not, but there’s no doubt that the Jet 300+ is a bit more designer than the average treadmill.
The good design extends to the hardware and software alike. You’ll benefit from inclines up to 15%, in 15 increments, a powerful motor and a generous running deck with ‘Air Motion Technology’. Reebok says this technology creates an undercurrent to cushion the foot as it lands and then enhance the ‘toe-off’ as it leaves the belt. In theory, that means less energy wasted and less stress to joints.
While the 300 Plus isn’t drastically different from its little sister the 300 in terms of its build, the console and programmes where you’ll really notice a difference. The console boasts an impressive touchscreen where you can track your progress and keep yourself entertained. The Jet 300+ can accommodate 3rd party apps and comes pre-loaded with Netflix and Spotify, so you can blast through episodes or playlists while you blast through the miles.
There’s not a lot to complain about with the Jet 300+. However we would have liked to have seen bluetooth included as standard, and, as is the case with many of the more solid folding treadmills on the market, it could take up less room when folded. But on the whole this is an impressive, interactive, high-spec running machine.
