ESPN - NBA, players plan to form new wearables committee as part of new CBA
As part of the tentative new collective bargaining agreement, ESPN sources indicate there are plans to form a new wearables committee staffed by league officials and players union representatives who will manage and regulate the use of biometrics and biometric data of players. In what has become a hot-button issue, the NBA has seen a rise in star players being rested for regular-season games. On Wednesday night, a barrage of big names including LeBron James, Kevin Love, DeMarcus Cousins, LaMarcus Aldridge and Kyrie Irving did not play in scheduled games to rest. So far this season, Blake Griffin, John Wall, Joel Embiid and others have sat at least one game as a healthy scratch. The devices could be used to manage those workloads and track exertion levels more precisely.
Well+Good - 5 Surprising Things I Learned About Fitness from the Smartest Wearable Yet
If all wearables are technically “smart,” this one might as well belong to Mensa. Using a unique set of metrics and truly actionable data, Whoop takes fitness tracking to an entirely new level and has been embraced by professional and college athletes like Olympic swimmer Connor Jaeger, NBA superstar Lebron James, and the Harvard squash team. Via a metric called heart rate variability (HRV) and advanced sleep tracking, it measures how much “strain” you’re subject to each day and how well your body recovers from that strain, emphasizing the fact that the time you spend sweating each day is just one small part of an effective workout routine. “Will [Ahmed], the founder of the company, always says, ‘Are you an athlete three hours a day or 24 hours a day?'” explains Jack Seitz, Whoop’s vice president of business development. “Every decision you make counts.”
Digital Trends - The future of biometric tracking will make step counters look like antiques
By now, you’re probably already familiar with activity trackers — in fact, everyone you know who’s even remotely active has a Fitbit or something similar, even if they barely ever use it. Wearables and trackers like the Fitbit have been around for years, and while the information they provide — heart rate, sleep patterns, GPS — is invaluable, it only scratches the surface of what biometric data can offer. Biometrics — the science and technology of analyzing biological data — can be as simple as taking your heart rate before and after a run, and as complicated as a blood test that determines your hormone and glucose levels. Wearable activity monitors are a basic form of biometrics, and while some of the consumer-facing ones are quite sophisticated, the technology that’s on the horizon is much more advanced and extremely exciting.
Digital Trends - MLB uses Whoop Strap to record and analyze baseball players’ recovery time
Sports-related injuries seem to be on the rise these days. This really should not come as a surprise. Athletes are pushing themselves further on a daily basis, walking a fine line between strain and gain. Whoop wants to make sure athletes continue to improve by resting when they need it. We have reported in the past about the Whoop Strap and what it can provide for an individual. The aim is to teach the wearer about how their body responds to strenuous activity, because after a hard workout or game, your body needs time to recover. The strap tracks your heart rate, skin conductivity, ambient temperature, and motion throughout the day. Afterward, it suggests how much sleep is needed to fully recover.
Sports Illustrated - WHOOP finds positive results from largest performance study in U.S. pro sports
With the completion of the largest performance study ever conducted with a professional U.S. sports league, human performance company WHOOP is continuing to give sports organizations smarter data and insight into the relationship between physiological status and performance. In partnership with Major League Baseball, the study included voluntary participation from 230 minor league players across nine MLB organizations, including the San Francisco Giants, Atlanta Braves and Baltimore Orioles. The study—which occurred from June to November of this year—ultimately confirmed a positive correlation between monitoring recovery and performance, the Boston-based company found.
