Digital Trends - WHOOP Athletic Wearable Stresses Recovery for Better Performance
The wearables market already seems implicitly targeted toward those leading an active lifestyle, what with their sleep, exercise, and calorie counters as standard features on most devices. But now, one company is making it even more obvious that when it comes to athletics, wearables are the future. Meet Whoop, a next-level device that describes itself as “a system robust enough to prepare a Navy SEAL for battle, but with the form factor and design that the average athlete would be comfortable wearing 24 hours a day.” Sure, skeptics abound — after all, how different could Whoop really be from a Fitbit or an Apple Watch? But while it may not be altogether different, it does offer some unique insights that are key to heightened athletic performance — by applying predictive analytics, Whoop wants to help teams and individuals better understand their bodies and how they recover after a hard game or workout.
psfk - The Best In Wearable Tech From The Rio Olympics
The Olympics are always a great time to show off athletic skills, as well as showcase newly created wearables. Curated for the Olympics, a new range of wearable tech is giving athletes a boost up, without the need for performance enhancing drugs. In fact, these technologies have gotten so good that certain swimsuits might be banned.

Men's Fitness - No, Fitness Trackers Are Not a Fad. Here's Why You Should Double Down On Your Data — Today.
It's no secret that 2016 hasn't exactly been a banner year for the humble fitness tracker. In 2015, 78 million units shipped worldwide—a 171% increase from the previous year. But now the backlash has officially arrived, and it’s not pretty. If you believe recent news reports, the fitness tracker is such a bust we may as well enshrine it in the Doomed-Fad Hall of Fame, next to the ThighMaster, dial-up Internet, and metrosexuals.
Men's Journal - 10 Gadgets Rio Olympians Swear Give Them A Competitive Advantage
The Tech: Created in 2012 by a Harvard squash team captain, this wearable device records heart rate, ambient temperature, and motion at over 100 times per second and transmits the data to a connected app to measure an athlete's strain, recovery time, and sleep habits. The data is then analyzed to help suggest when a user is training too hard, not resting long enough, adding physical stress by traveling, and recognizing when ingesting caffeine or alcohol might affect their recovery.

You might miss some of these details while you're watching from the couch, so here's what to look for during the remaining days of competition, which wraps up next weekend.
Designboom - WHOOP revolutionizes way elite athletes, like Lebron James, reduce injury and predict peak performance

WT VOX - WHOOP – Is This The Best Wearable Device?
The more metrics a wearable device can track, the better. Past 2015, a new stream of next-gen fitness trackers have focused on tracking more detailed metrics, more often, and Whoop is right at the top of the wave. Whoop is taking the data tracking business one step further with its predictive analytics system, designed for pro athletes and coaches. The price is quite high in comparison to the general market fitness trackers. It comes as a subscription, from $500 to $5,000 a year for a single athlete and up to $100,000 for a manager who wants to monitor a whole team using Whoop. That is right, 100k.
Sport Techie - This Elite Athletes Wearable That Olympians Are Using Is Now Available For Consumers
Olympic rower Gevvie Stone has been getting more sleep. She owes it in part to the WHOOP performance monitoring system she’s been using since last December, a wristband she wears at night that evaluates her strain and recovery. The thin, lightweight band does so by measuring and analyzing heart rate, heart rate variability (HRV), ambient temperature and motion, among other data points. Stone is also a doctor, which helps her more deeply understand the data that WHOOP collects, and she believes that HRV is essential in measuring fatigue and recovery. “The fact that WHOOP was measuring HRV it definitely made me particularly interested in the product,” Stone says. “It’s one of the things that I really rely on within the system.”
Fox Business - Train Like An Olympian With WHOOP, A Wearable Fitness Coach
Team USA Basketball point guard Kyle Lowry and swimming star Ryan Lochte are among 20 Olympic athletes that used the wearable gadget WHOOP to improve their training regimens ahead of this month’s games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Conceived in 2012 by former Harvard University squash team captain Will Ahmed, the WHOOP tech-enabled bracelet tracks data on the user’s sleep patterns, heart rate and physical exertion during training. Within a few days, the device provides recommendations on everything from how much sleep the user should get to whether the strain they’re placing on their bodies is outweighing their ability to recover, providing users with a blueprint of how to change their habits to improve performance.
