Display and User Interface Comparison
The Weslo Cadence G 5.9i has a LCD window and the ProForm Performance 800i has a 14″ Smart HD Touchscreen. The Smart Performance 800i has a touchscreen which is great while the Cadence G 5.9i has buttons for controlling the treadmill, so browsing the menus is not as intuitive as the Smart Performance 800i. We think the bigger display size of the Smart Performance 800i is a plus.
Built in Programs
The Smart Performance 800i has 44 more programs, 50 vs 6. Both treadmills are iFit Coach Compatible so you can get many different workout options.
We gave the ProForm Performance 800i a rating of 95 over 100 while we gave 85 for the Cadence G 5.9i because, the Smart Performance 800i has a more powerful motor, more user weight capacity, a touch screen, bigger screen, more programs, decline control, and a good price for the features you get. Also larger belt size of the Smart Performance 800i makes it a better treadmill for taller runners.
