We’ll wait to strive the brand new collection out first earlier than agreeing that they truly run quiet, although the corporate says the brand new devices sound nearer to an electrical toothbrush than one thing from Black and Decker. The brand new quieter motor tech will probably be constructed into Theragun Professional, Elite, Prime, and the brand new mini, which is a single-handed gadget that appears totally totally different from the remainder of the household.
The Theragun mini ($200), which the corporate is asking ‘pocket-sized’, affords 20 kilos of power and three totally different pace settings. On a cost, it ought to final for 150 minutes of therapeutic massage. LED lights on the high of the gadget will let you realize which mode you’re utilizing.
Step as much as the Prime ($299) and issues look extra acquainted, with that triangular Theragun body, 30 kilos of oomph and 5 pace settings. The Prime, alongside the opposite costlier fashions, the Elite and the Professional, now have Bluetooth, connecting to a brand new TheraBody app that may sync with Apple Well being, Google Match and Samsung Well being. I’m not totally clear on what advantages that can supply simply but, however the firm says it can ship therapeutic massage therapies “uniquely suited” to the way you train and your preferences. The Prime replaces the entry-level Theragun Liv.
Changing the unique Theragun G3, the Elite ($399) is available in black and white choices, with 40 kilos of power, a completely customizable pace vary as much as 2,400 pulses per minute, and 5 attachments together with a dampener, cone, wedge and, huh, thumb shapes. There are three built-in app-guided routines, and an OLED display screen to point out depth and battery stage. Anticipate a cost to final for 2 hours.
Rounding out the collection, the high-end Professional ($599), seen above, is a “commercial-grade” therapeutic massage gun that has a rotating arm and swappable batteries, so it may be used repeatedly. Understandably, it’s aimed toward therapists and trainers, or high-level athletes. It comes with further “tremendous gentle” attachment for extra delicate areas and might stand up to 60 kilos of power. It sounds imply.
Every swappable battery needs to be good for 150 minutes of therapeutic massage. It’s priced the identical because the mannequin it changed, the G3Pro, and comes with a two-year guarantee.
The collection goes on sale at the moment at Theragun.com, alongside new wi-fi charging docks for the top-end Theraguns. The mini looks like essentially the most intriguing of the brand new class, with a extra transportable form-factor and a worth that can make part-time health club regulars balk rather less. I’m planning to check out the brand new gadgets as quickly as they land for testing.
