On a mission to unlock human performance, the lightweight and waterproof wearable device automatically analyses your strain, recovery, and sleep, providing actionable recommendations to enhance your performance and avoid overtraining.
Weighing 0.64 ounces, WHOOP is Compatible with 10.3.1 and Android Kit Kat 4.4. Product features include an ability to measure heart rate, heart rate variability (HRV), ambient temperature, motion via 3-Axis Accelerometer, and On/Off Wrist Detection via Capacitive Touch Sensor. Included with purchase, users also have access to the WHOOP Mobile and Web App. ‘Always On’ for continuous wear utilising unique on-wrist charging system, the wearable tech has a battery Life that can last up to 44 hours with everyday use, and the WHOOP strap can store up to three days of data.
The width of the WHOOP Strap is about 1 inch wide, and the length is adjustable to fit any wrist. When you adorn the WHOOP Strap make sure that you place it on the wrist, about 1 cm above the bone of your wrist (away from your hand). The WHOOP Strap should be snug, but not too tight – tight enough to ensure the sensors make solid contact with your skin. If you can slide your pinky finger under the Strap, it is likely too loose.
