Opove M3 Pro Review: Best Massage Gun Under $200?
Welcome to our Opove M3 Pro review – this is a product you definitely need to keep on your radar if you’re looking for a massage gun. Despite being new to the market, it has literally thousands of customer reviews (and nearly all 5 star) online already. Right now, these percussion massagers are definitely the “must have” fitness item for 2020. However, if you check online you’ll see that there are hundreds of brands available, so how do you know which one to choose?
They’re definitely not all equal, and can range in price from about $60 – $600. The quality and functionality varies a lot even if they TELL YOU they all do the same thing. Don’t be fooled into buying the cheapest brands (which are usually knockoffs), but you don’t need to buy the most expensive one either.
In this article we’re going to dissect the Opove M3 Pro, and see what makes it so popular. It’s literally flying off the virtual shelves as people from all walks of life – both sports and fitness fans, and even non-exercisers – get in on the massage trend.
What is Opove M3 Pro?
The Opove M3 Pro is an impressive massage gun packed with attractive features like detachable massage applicators, great battery life, variable speed, and solid build. Like all massage guns, it’s designed to be a recovery tool, for the treatment of muscles after exercise (or before, if you want to use it for warming up). It consists of four interchangeable heads that allow you to customize its operation.
The dimensions of this gun are 10 x 5 x 1.5 inches and package dimensions are 15.6 x 9.1 x 3.5 inches. The weight of this gun is 2.2 pounds (easy to handle) and the shipping weight is 4.6 pounds. It comes in 3 variable speeds and comes with 1 Lithium-ion battery which lasts for 3 hours on a single charge.
Design And Quality
The Opove M3 Pro looks incredible has an attractive and high-quality design that is easy to use. It has a black outline on the front and the handle and finishes with stunning brushed metal. It comes in three different colors – Silver, Black, and Camouflage Red. The M3 Pro feels pretty solid in hand.
To indicate battery life and selected life, LED lights are placed on the back of this massager. The ergonomic design makes it comfortable and easy to handle. Having a weight of only 2.2 lbs makes it ultralight. It comes with a beautiful and strong carrying case which makes the massage gun and its accessories easy to carry anywhere, whether going to the gym or traveling. In terms of design and quality, M3 Pro scores highly and has everything you would want in a handheld massager.
1. Variable Speeds
It totally depends on you whether you prefer gentle massage or hard massage. It has 3 variable speed settings. 3,200 RPM for a faster and deeper massage to treat sore muscles. Or if you want a gentle and focussed massage to relax your muscles, you can switch it to 2,400 RPM or 1,800 RPM. Its flexible speed settings allow you to target sensitive areas too without breaking the pain threshold.
M3 Pro is packed with a 24V Brushless High-torque motor that makes it a powerhouse. You never feel short of enough vibrations whether you are having a high-intensity massage or gentle and relaxing massage. This high-torque motor has the ability to reach 3,200 PPM (higher than other products in this category) which means it has enough power to deliver a high-intensity deep tissue massage. It is also a battery efficient device.
3. Quiet Glide Technology
Generally, you would expect a 24V Brushless High-torque motor to be noisy, but not in this case. This is because it comes with Quiet Glide Technology which is used to silence the motor and make its noise level comfortable.
At its noisiest level, Opove M3 Pro registers at about 55 decibels and its noise levels decrease to 35 decibels on lower settings. That means you can use it in public e.g. at the gym, or even at night without bothering anyone. It is one of the QUIETEST products in this category.
4. Interchangeable Heads
It has four massage heads that are interchangeable:
- Ball Shaped – This head is used to massage bulk muscles group like around your thighs, waist, back, and arms.
- Flat shaped – It encourages muscle plasticity and facilitates the targeted muscles by relaxing massages.
- Fork Shaped – This is used to apply targeted pressure on the neck and spine.
- Point Shaped – This head is used to provide deep tissue massages and enhance the massage’s precision to target specific muscles.
These heads are easy to switch and enhance the functionality of the massager.
5. Anti-drop Shell
The massage shell of this gun is made with Nylon 66 and Glass Fiber and packed with Breakthrough technology. It is easy to handle but if you drop it accidentally, the Nylon 66 and Glass Fiber protect it from any damage. Its outer shell is shockproof which is the best ani-drop measure. It can survive a drop from around 6 feet that makes it an impressive and incredibly strong device.
6. Accurate Percussion
The M3 pro gives accurate percussion. Its stroke length is 12mm. It is perfectly designed to aid recovery and reduce soreness, by gently and pleasantly beating your muscles. It has another interesting feature that M3 Pro will automatically turn off after 10 minutes to protect you from injury.
7. Long Battery Life
M3 Pro is packed with a Lithium-ion rechargeable battery that can charge quite quickly. It can last for up to 3 hours of massage after a single charge.
8. FREE Carrying Case included
All the accessories come with beautiful, strong carrying case through which make this handheld massage gun easily portable. See details here

Stall force and stroke length (12mm) are lower than more expensive devices such as the Theragun, which has a stall force of 60lbs and stroke length of 16mm. However, the Theragun G3pro is also 3 times the price (and a professional device), so you’d expect to get more for your money. The Opove M3 Pro is more than capable of doing its job for the majority of users.
Conclusion: A fantastic massager at an unbeatable price
When you are planning to buy a massage gun you’ll probably want to compare parameters such as speed levels, attachments, battery life, and noise output before you choose. Looking at the Opove M3 vs most other models at this price point you’ll see that it wins hands down. It is budget-friendly with a high-performance level (that actually works as well as some that are significantly more expensive).
