Theragun

Final Thoughts

With the comparison of the features and specs of both the products, the biggest difference between the two is their cost. While both the products are used by laypeople as well as professional athletes and sportspeople, they are the best massagers on the market. The power and speed settings of the Tim Tam work at 2500 rpm while the Theragun works at 5 different levels between 1700 and 2400 rpm. So if you want to use the massager for a lower level of pain, then it is right to choose the TheraGun. If you want a massager that works silently, then TheraGun is meant for you. It also has an exceptional battery life of 1 hour. So, with all the above comparisons, I conclude that TheraGun is a better option than Tim Tam.
