Whoop is a new fitness band

Whoop is the fitness band that has the power to take athletic analytics to the next level. Unfortunately, there are also some down sides here: Whoop is uncomfortable and expensive.

These days, all wearables on the market are coming with similar specs and features. These devices use some forms of step tracking or GPS tracking in purpose to determine people’s fitness level.

Other wearables are more advanced, because they can also track heart rate during activity. Unfortunately, none of these devices have the have the possibility to take that data and crunch it over days to determine what’s actually happening in users’ body.

So the questions are: if wearables will be able to have this new feature, will they become stronger? Recover faster?

So, these days a new wearable was released on the market. We are talking about the new Whoop fitness band.

This company made its debut on the fitness band market just three years ago. The people behind the Whoop band tackled these questions and even more.

The company managed to create a new fitness band that has the ability to offer predictive analytics for athletes and coaches.

The new Whoop wants to help athletes train smarter and avoid overtraining. The company claims that this band was worn by professional athletes and Olympians, for example Olympic swimmer Connor Jaegar and Toronto Raptor Kyle Lowry. These professional swimmers have testimonials on the company’s site, among others.

Let’s get into the details. This new device is a sensor strapped to a wide elastic band that people will be able to wear on their wrist.

We must say that the new Whoop doesn’t come with any lights or display on it. The only branding is on the simple metal clasp that people use to adjust the band’s length.

To be added that the sensor measures approximately 1 inch wide and about 1 ¾ inches long.

Moreover, this band is approximately ¼ inch thick without the battery pack, which transforms it in one of the thinnest bands on the market.

Adding the battery pack, this band will increase overall in thickness to about ¾ inches.

To be added that this new band is the second version that the company has released.

The new Whoop is more like an upgrade to the first version.

One of the best things is that this model has the ability to offer fully automated recognition of activities like sleeping.

The first Whoop model was released back in 2015. This band was released following a huge 12 million investment after coming out of Harvard’s Innovation Lab.

  • Ambient Temperature
  • Motion via a 3-Axis Accelerometer
  • On/Off Wrist via a Capacitive Touch Sensor

Since then, the company had some solid selling, according to Will Ahmed, the founder of Whoop.

In the end, we must say that there are different types of bands available for different activities, too. So, people who are in search for a waterproof band, should know that there are 8 different colors on the site with this kind of band.

The main mission for Whoop is to give athletes an idea of how well they recover, and help them predict with relative accuracy.
