The benefits of exercising with Octonic VR

Treadmill workouts are great for cardio; however, running on a treadmill can be dull and uninspiring which can stand in the way of fitness goals. Indeed, research has shown that even tech-enabled treadmills have not really solved the problem of captivating treadmill users or motivating prolonged exercise. Whether you're an avid runner, recreational jogger, or health-oriented walker, Octonic VR workout makes treadmill training fun and requires minimum investment in time and effort. We’ve also developed a run-in-place mode so you can enjoy running and walking exercises in shape even without access to a treadmill.

Entertaining and social

With realistic visuals, interactive virtual reality worlds, and AI runners in the game, you can compete and explore. VR is so life-like and fun you won't even notice you’re exercising.

Quick and efficient

No need to spend time commuting to the gym or the park, no dependency on the weather. With Octonic VR, just step on a treadmill and start exercising in a matter of seconds.

Educational and exploratory

Wander the earth's most beautiful places and discover world landmarks at your own pace. You won’t get bored on your treadmill with so much to learn and explore.

Safe and comfortable

Walking and running using our proprietary VR technology prevents motion sickness and is as safe as using a conventional treadmill. Octonic allows natural Virtual Reality exercising.

How it works

In treadmill mode, all you need is a treadmill, Oculus / Meta Quest 2 or Quest Pro VR headset, and the Octonic VR software.

When you’re on a treadmill with the VR headset on, the hand-tracking system will allow you to seamlessly navigate Octonic's virtual menu and choose a place/track you want to be teleported to. As you start walking or running, the VR movement exactly replicates the treadmill movement. You’ll be able to choose between multiple paths on your journey and will have complete freedom to control your speed and how far you go. In non-treadmill mode, you’ll be running in-place, so all you’ll need is enough open space to accommodate your roomscale boundary. Just put your controllers down and move your hands and feet!

VR headset

Octonic VR software is compatible with the Oculus / Meta Quest 2, a mobile VR headset that delivers high performance and comfort. We plan to support all new mobile VR headsets as they become available.


Octonic supports 99% of fitness treadmills in semi-automatic mode. We also support multiple treadmill brands and models in fully-automated mode and strive for software compatibility with all existing treadmills.

Octonic VR software

Octonic smart VR software consists of a proprietary VR Motion Engine and a VR Content Library with various worlds/tracks and is available now on Meta AppLab, and SideQuest.

VR Headsets

Octonic VR software is compatible with the Oculus / Meta Quest 2, a mobile VR headset that delivers high performance and comfort. We plan to support all new mobile VR headsets as they become available.


Meta Quest 2

Get It Now The Quest 2, by far the most popular standalone headset on the market, is an excellent choice for recreational walkers and joggers. We recommend it for use at speeds of up to 6 MPH, with the addition of non-fabric headstraps (Kiwi or Oon) to maximize comfort.


Meta Quest Pro

Get It Now The Quest Pro, a premium product with its balanced weight distribution and enhanced graphics capabilities, offers optimal features for high-performance runners. Because of its weight balance, we recommend it for higher-speed runs at above 6 MPH.


Pico 4

Get It Now
(Support Coming Soon)
We’re working on adding support for the Pico 4. The headset is available in Europe and Asia. It combines a relatively low price with a lightweight and balanced design and is perfect for walkers, joggers, and runners who want to exercise with minimal resistance.


Octonic can be used with 99% of fitness treadmills at least in one of three modes: a non-connected mode, connected mode, and fully integrated mode. No matter in which mode you’re using Octonic with your treadmill, you will be able to get access to any of the Octonic worlds at an uncompromised level of performance and safety with full support from Octonic’s Motion Engine and 3-Level Safety system. Please review the below to find out which mode works with your treadmill.


Non-Connected Mode

For non-connected treadmills, runners can use the passthrough viewbox in the app to access the physical controls of the treadmill, without taking off their headsets. By matching the speed of the treadmill with the speed of the VR controls, they can run seamlessly through the VR worlds. Non-connected mode is compatible with 99% of treadmills on the market. Requirements: handrails and at least 18” belt width.

Connected Mode

In connected mode, runners will perform a quick bluetooth calibration to wirelessly connect their headsets to their treadmills. This will allow for communication between both devices, so that when the users change speeds or press start/stop in VR, the actual treadmill does the same in real time. Connected mode is available for 40 different treadmill brands. Check the list of supported treadmills below.

Fully Integrated Mode

In collaboration with our long-standing treadmill partner NoblePro, we have developed the first ever fully integrated treadmill mode that not only synchronizes controls, but also introduces a VR treadmill model which can be calibrated with the real world one. So when people reach out to their VR treadmills, they will touch their real NoblePro treadmills in complete synchronicity. Get NoblePro below.


Non-Treadmill Mode

Octonic also offers a Non-Treadmill Mode that allows runners without treadmills to exercise using the App. You’ll have the flexibility to enter our virtual running trails from wherever you choose. All that is required is enough space for you to run in place.

No Treadmill Required

We initially developed Octonic exclusively for use with treadmills, but received a lot of feedback about using the app to exercise without additional hardware. We listened and now, you can exercise and enjoy our running worlds without having to rely on access to fitness treadmills.

Same Worlds and Trails

With our Non-Treadmill Mode, you’ll have access to the very same library of running trails as our Treadmill Mode. So you won’t miss out on any of the amazing environments we develop and release on a monthly basis. Even better, you’ll still be able to compete against AI opponents.

Dynamic Adaptable Speed

You won’t need to press any buttons to adjust your speed. Instead, we’ve developed a Motion Engine feature that tracks your movements and adjusts your speed on the virtual running trail automatically. Running in VR will be as easy as simply putting on a headset and running in place.

VR worlds and tracks

Octonic VR offers diverse choices for exercising. Want a peaceful jog in a desert canyon? We’ve got you covered! Do you desire a more intense out-of-this-world athletic experience? Just teleport to the floating space Arena to race solo or multiplayer against friends, random runners from across the world, or AI competitors, with a cheering crowd in the background.


Sky Island

Take your workout to our Sky Island world. This isn’t your everyday island, though, but a floating landmass on a planet far from Earth. Enjoy unmatched vistas of a neighboring moon and planet while you run on a pristine beach, past a soaring waterfall and through cavernous tunnels. Be mindful to stay away from the edge!
