Levelling up the tracking device space, WHOOP monitors your sleep, physical strain, and recovery to give you a 360 overview of your health. Putting an enthesis on your recovery, WHOOP has been designed to put your specific needs first, taking into consideration every strain you’re putting on your body whether it’s exercise, high stress or anything else that might impact you. Utilising a high-tech algorithm, your WHOOP strap connects with your app to give you stats based on your daily lifestyle, so if your exertion rate is higher than usual, your WHOOP will indicate that more recovery is needed to perform at your best. WHOOP is anything but generic which is what we love most about it. Unlike many fitness trackers that have the same daily targets, WHOOP’s will change on a daily basis due to the fact that most days aren’t the same! With lots of clever little features, including a journal, sleep coach, exertion rate and more, WHOOP will enable you to learn more about your body to perform at your optimal level.
