Using methods like the Pomodoro method can help you time your workday and schedule work periods and break periods. You can also use it to time your sit-stand sessions! The SmartDesk Core features 4 programmable memory settings that you can use to present specific heights you need throughout the workday. That means you can take the guesswork out of hitting the right height; just the press of a button gets you to the right height every time.


Don't see the answer to your question?

May I use PayPal to pay for this desk?
Due to transaction limits, we can only accept PayPal payments from the 1st to the 15th of every month. PayPal’s account policy permits us to accept a limited volume of payments per month, and with current sales volume, we normally reach our limit by the 15th.
What are the differences between the SmartDesk Core and SmartDesk Pro?
Pro frame (without top) has a height range of 25" - 51" and holds 300 pounds of weight and has a 7-year warranty.

Does this desk use a regular 120 volt outlet?
Yes. Our standing desk is compatible with standard 110 volts - 240 volts outlets. Both currents are automatically converted by the desk. US orders are installed with the standard two-prong plug. For international orders, we convert the plug to the type used by the destination country.
I see that there is a “black box” to be installed on the underside (aside from the control panel), with power and data connection. Is this like a power strip and data plug-in?
Yes, this is the control box. It must be attached under the standing desk to use the Smart Keypad. It is connected with the Smart Keypad to control the height of the desk, and with the power source to tell the electric motor(s) when to move up and down.

If you don’t like your desk, we’ll take it back. It’s that simple and easy. You have until 30 days after delivery to build and use your desk. If you change your mind, you can then request to return the desk for a full refund (we even cover shipping!), no questions asked. This policy applies to all desks delivered inside continental U.S. and returned in their original packaging only. International orders do not qualify for this program. Please note that the returned standing desk needs to be in its original packaging. If not, we reserve the right to refuse your request.
Is there a way to reset my SmartDesk Core?
The Re-set function for Premium and Home Office is the following:

Is the 70.5 inch x 30 inch SmartDesk Core XL less stable than the classic size?
