We’ve been wondering the same thing.
What the heck is the difference between the Kahuna LM 6800 and the LM 6800s?
Remember when Apple came out with the iPhone 5c (I might be dating myself here)?
I do. It turns out that the “c” meant the phone had a plastic backing and was a cheaper overall phone.
Don’t worry, the LM 6800S is not the cheaper version of this model. In fact, it’s a got a bunch of new features only for a couple hundred dollars.
If you are heavily considering buying the LM 6800 model, we highly suggest purchasing the LM 6800S. The LM 6800s is bigger, longer, and has fine-tuned features than the LM 6800.

Kahuna LM 6800s
The Kahuna LM 6800s is one of our favorite chairs in our budget list. It’s got all the features of high quality massage chairs and it’s quite stylish enough to fit into any kind of home decor.
Over the LM 6800, it has more auto programs to enjoy, custom memory saving options, acupuncture enabled arm massage, and more fine-tuned features.
One of my favorite things about this chair is the stretching programs. Yoga, Active, Dynamic, and SV-chiro. These programs grip your feet via the airbags and mangle you up and down. It’s the most strength I’ve seen a massage chair carry (perhaps even more than a real masseuse!
Another thing is that there are most adjustment options on the 6800s than the 6800. If you felt like you needed to tone down the intensity or speed of previous Kahuna models, you’re in luck.
The Kahuna LM 6800S dimensions are slightly larger at 52 X 31 X 48 Inches (Length, Width, Height).

Kahuna LM 6800
The 6800S may be slightly better in features but if you’re looking to save a couple hundred dollars, this chair is not a bad option for you.
It still sports many awesome features like zero g, computerized body scan, 5 different massage techniques, and air compression massage from shoulder to toe.
I especially enjoyed the build in Castors that make it much easier to move the chair across the room.
The Kahuna LM 6800 dimensions are 46 X 31 X 48 Inches. So if you’re kind of strapped for space in your living room, this may be the better option since its a little bit smaller than the 6800S.
