The Gauge chart uses needles to show information as a reading on dial, such that the value is analyzed against colored data range. It combines the categorical values with subjective approach such that a number can be assigned to each category. Whereas, the Bullet graph is a modified bar graph where the value of the single variable is shown for different categories.
The Gauge graph gives the minimum, maximum and current value at a high speed without interpreting the figures. But this graph consumes a lot of visual space in the dashboard and includes lots of chart junk.
The bullet graph can be used for comparisons between different categories according to the same subjective approach, that provides better visualization than the other types of charts. But this graph can confuse the person new to data visualization, as it distracts the reader with many shades of one color shown in background.
