Whoop 4.0 and Whoop Body: Improved fitness tracker and clothing for integration

Post a Comment

Whoop is redesigning its own fitness tracker Whoop Strap 3.0 (test) and is now also bringing suitable sportswear onto the market, in which the tracker can be integrated in the future so that the wearable can be worn 24 hours a day in all situations.

Smaller and more functions

According to the manufacturer, Whoop 4.0 relies on an improved sensor configuration in which the ratio of green and infrared light has been optimized with five LEDs and four photodiodes, and adapted algorithms that are supposed to increase accuracy. In addition, the new model is 33 percent smaller than Whoop 3.0. The new generation also records blood oxygen (pulse oximeter) and skin temperature.

With Sleep Coach, a new function is also offered that uses noticeable notifications to alert the wearer when optimal recovery has been achieved, whereby the sleep and wake-up times can be individually adjusted. In the new health monitor, the user can follow the progression of heart rate, skin temperature, blood oxygen content, resting heart rate and heart rate variability. If desired, they can be exported again as a PDF to share with trainers or doctors.

    The battery pack is also waterproof

    The battery life of the Whoop 4.0 should be five days. It is recharged directly when it is carried via an attachable battery pack. This battery pack is now also waterproof. According to Whoop, silicon anode battery materials from Sila will be used for the first time in the new generation.

    Sleep, rest and exercise

    Whoop 4.0 also records this data around the clock in order to visualize insights into sleep, recovery and training for the user in the app. It takes a different approach than most fitness trackers, which mainly focus on step counting and recording the heart rate. Whoop, on the other hand, would like to provide the user with assistance on how much sport should be done in a day by evaluating their own performance and the activity of the last few days.

    A subscription is required for use, which also includes the hardware, which therefore does not have to be purchased additionally. The subscription starts at 18 euros a month. Current Whoop members receive an upgrade to the new wearable Whoop 4.0 at no additional cost.

    Apparel line integrates the tracker

    In addition, Whoop is bringing the right clothing onto the market for the new generation, in which the tracker can be integrated into special pockets in the clothing, so that it can be worn at any time independently of the wristband and the data can be recorded on different parts of the body. The band should automatically recognize where it is being worn. The strap’s retaining mechanism has been adapted to make it easier and faster to switch between armband and integration into clothing.
