Shark ION Robot 750 vs. iRobot Roomba 690 — What’s Different?

Shark ION Robot 750

Boundaries – With Roomba 690 it’s a lot easier to create no-go zones than with Shark ION 750.

Roomba uses a virtual wall barrier that you can place in an entryway which will project an infrared beam, preventing your smart vacuum from approaching.

Whereas Shark ION is compatible with the BotBoundary Strips, which basically look like pieces of black tape that you cut to the appropriate size and place them around the area of an object or across an entryway to an off-limits spot.

Dimensions – When it comes to the size, Shark ION is slightly smaller and lighter than iRobot Roomba 690 measuring at a diameter of 12.4 inches, a height of 3.5 inches, and a weight of 6.6 pounds, compared to Roomba’s 13.0-inch diameter, 3.7-inch height, and 7.8-pound weight.

Navigation Technology – Additionally, Roomba’s navigation technology surpasses Shark ION’s since it uses iAdapt Responsive Cleaning Technology which prevents it from getting stuck as often as the other models.

Whereas ION Robot 750 uses a heightened smart sensor navigation 2.0, allowing it to navigate around obstacles and objects during its scheduled cleanings.
