VERDE is the world's first treadmill that converts man,s walking, jogging, running and sprinting into 200 Watts/hour of energy by using an electromagnetic and mechanical braking system. This energy is pumped back into the grid.
While talking about G690 Verde, Ivo Grossi, CEO of the Americas for SportsArt says,
"We noticed a gap in sustainability present in gyms and knew we had to do something about that, we took the treadmill, a staple in fitness and incorporated a revolutionary technology that would not only reduce energy consumption, but actually produce it. With this being our first time at CES, we are thrilled to present VERDE and its technology to a whole new audience.”

While discussing about disadvantages of G690 Verde, Dr. Jamey Schrier says,
"It is not bad for a body but the body is bad for it". According to him, if man has already illness then it may inflict injuries upon him.e. g. Flat foot person
1: It burns calories faster than any other forms of in-home exercise, e. g. biking
2: Its cushioned surface may inflict a jarring impact on the back or stress the hip, knee, and ankle joints.
3: Because of a lot of space, it is difficult to fold it up.

1: One eco treadmill uses a USB port to power a small device like a smartphone but it produces 200Watts/h of energy.
2: The G690 has many unique features as compared to any other non-motorized treadmill.
You can watch this machine in action in this video.
It is the best machine not only for exercise but for weight loss of a body, reduction of stress upon the body and sport specific training. I highly recommend you to purchase it because of its highly features, advantages, usage with the exception of a few disadvantages.
I suggest if you want to purchase it, keep the following points in mind.
You should check
1: A higher rating of motor because it generally shows a smoother motion and more powerful and quieter motor.
2: The long enough and wide enough area of the running surface for walking or running stride because it may prevent you from falling or tripping.
3: A cushioning surface because it provides enough absorption to minimize impact on joints.
4: Electronic or manual controls that are easy to use, read, and program because it will prevent you from troubles in handling.
5: An acceptable noise level, checked while in slow (walking) mode and running mode
6: Quality of the workmanship and stability,
