|Motor||60W Brush-less high speed motor||QX35 Motor with QuietForce Technology|
Both products have one thing in common, the ability to penetrate deep into the tissue and relieve fatigue by relaxing the muscle.
- The Xiaomi Massage Gun uses a high powered 60W brush-less motor which can attain a maximum of 3200 percussion’s in a single minute making it faster than the Theragun.
