This app requires a WHOOP Strap with an iPhone 5s or newer and iOS 11 or later.
WHOOP optimizes performance for elite athletes through a continuous understanding of Strain and Recovery. When paired with a WHOOP Strap, the WHOOP App provides physiological data, analysis, and actionable insights that help athletes tailor their training, improve their sleep, and maximize their performance.
For a coach or trainer, it provides the ability to see every member of a team in a list and their respective Strain Scores after a workout or game, their Recoveries in the morning (how prepared they are for strain/exercise), and their Sleep Performance last night. This helps prevent overtraining/undertraining, optimize lineups and rotations, improve training plans, and increase team accountability.
The WHOOP Strap doesn’t measure steps - it measures strain. The WHOOP App downloads data from the WHOOP Strap and uploads it to WHOOP’s servers.* The app allows athletes to see the strain of their workouts, providing information on the strain their bodies accrue during the physical activities. The app also allows athletes to track running and cycling routes, offering a map of the completed route and data on distance and speed.
Sleep Performance vs Sleep Need:
WHOOP offers athletes a sleep score, which is based on the time an athlete sleeps each night and a personalized calculation of the hours of sleep the athlete requires. Both calculations are based on the data coming from the WHOOP Strap, coupled with WHOOP’s proprietary analytics algorithms. The app also displays further details on each sleep, including the time spent in each sleep stage, the time it takes to fall asleep, and the number of disturbances during the night.
WHOOP lets athletes know how prepared their bodies are for physical strain and exertion. The Recovery score offered by the app is calculated after each sleep and is based on physiological data coming from the WHOOP Strap.
If you join WHOOP as a team, the WHOOP app allows you to see the Strain and Recovery scores of your teammates. This allows athletes to compare their daily Intensities and Recoveries against their fellow team members. For a coach or trainer, it provides the ability to see every member of a team in a list and their respective Strain Scores after a workout or game, their Recoveries in the morning (how prepared they are for strain/exercise), and their Sleep Performance last night. This helps prevent overtraining/undertraining, optimize lineups and rotations, improve training plans, and increase team accountability.

Whoop is amazing! Life changing!
I have been a competitive cyclist, gym rat and yogi for years. I’ve also trained with coaches for years. That being said the data Whoop provides is simply astonishing and unmatched. This is ground breaking technology. I understand it takes time for the strap to truly understand each individual’s needs and biometric rhythms. Tech support and podcast are amazing to help understand as you dive deeper and deeper into the data. Also inspiring to have better life habits in general. Anyone who doesn’t like this product is either too anxious, doesn’t completely understand the merits or simply not the right candidate. Again this is life changing and should not be overlooked from the most competitive elite athlete to the weekend warrior. Kudos to Whoop, after only a short period of time I cannot picture a time in my life where I wouldn’t be wearing this strap and extremely interested and intrigued by the data provided which has never before been available on any level, up to the minute in one’s hands. Thank you thank you thank you 🙏❤️🧘!
Surprised by the negative comments
I am 1 yr in to my Whoop experience and am surprised to read all the negative reviews. I have had an overall excellent experience and as an active 56 yr old multi sport recreational athlete (mountaineering, climbing, ice climbing, kitesurfing/skiing, sailing, paddle boarding, cycling, skiing, flying, regular gym +a few) I have found the whole whoop experience extremely useful. A couple of hardware issues at the beginning were addressed quickly by a replacement strap and have not had problems since. Suffering from Sleep Apnea means sleep data is important and whoop is the best I’ve used (and I’ve tried them all) and correlates (unofficially) well to the random sleep clinics I have done. As an ex- world class athlete, I enjoy the extensive data and awareness it brings to my “state” and the quick tips are great food for thought. I have always had answers from customer service through mail within 2-3 days, and the new UI is a great improvement on an already excellent years worth of experience. Thanks
Works for me
I’m not a high level athlete, but I exercise a lot and more importantly, I work in health care treating a whole range of difficult and complex conditions and health problems. It can be tough identifying the impact that small lifestyle factors can have on different people. I got the strap to see improved data on how my longer term health was being impacted by small daily choices. Turns out meditation does more for me than I thought, while alcohol has a seriously negative impact on my HVR, even in small amounts. I’m using a lot of different tools to identify small nuances in patients that can lead me to optimize their long term health and when I started doing research on HVR it sounded like a great tool. I recommend the whoop strap to my patients who suffer from unusual conditions characterized by unexpected flares. It can be really helpful to identify the subclinical factors straining homeostasis in the system.
