USA Today - MLB device aimed at improving performance
NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. – In his pursuit of a new baseball home this offseason, free agent closer Mark Melancon came armed with an array of questions to his interview with the San Francisco Giants. As an athlete who’s finely tuned with his body, Melancon wanted to learn about the club’s training and recovery methods. Among other things, Melancon found out the Giants have a sleep room in the clubhouse, will travel in all first-class seats this coming season and have consulted sleep experts to help them choose the least-disruptive times to travel during the season and playoffs.
Road Trail Run - 2016 Run Tech Holiday Gift Guide and Mini Reviews-GPS, Garmin, Polar, Fitbit, Lumo, Whoop, Bose, Epson, AppleWatch Nike+
2016 had me testing dozens of gadgets: GPS watches, activity bands, innovative run form coaching sensors and apps, and music earphones as part of assignments as the wearable tech and music columnist for Competitor Magazine. Many fine and innovative products came to market. My picks below represent a variety of price points and highlights. You can shop for many of these products at the ads and links at the end of the article. Whoop is the most ingenious, useful and deeply scientifically grounded performance wearable I have tested this year. A very slim heart rate and sleep sensing band monitors your heart rate at an amazing 100 times per seconds detecting at your deepest sleep moment your Variable Heart Rate (VHR), scientifically proven to be one of the best measures of true recovery from training and stress and strains of daily life . Until now VRH has been very difficult to measure without sophisticated equipment or time consuming daily tests.

WHOOP White Paper
SI.com - WHOOP goes direct-to-consumer with performance wearable system
Wearable technology and performance company WHOOP announced that as of Tuesday it is making publicly available its performance optimization system, a product that was only offered to professional or college athletes, military, Olympians or via select pre-orders. According to Will Ahmed, founder and CEO, the WHOOP Strap 2.0 will continue to deliver “actionable data” to athletes, teams and trainers to optimize performance, something he believes is missing from other competing tracking devices on the market today. “I think where wearables or trackers have failed to date is that they tell you a vague version of what’s happened, but they don’t tell you effectively what to do,” he said. “From a product standpoint, we can now tell teams and athletes, ‘This is what you need to do to perform at a higher level.’ We really designed the whole product from that standpoint where you can wake up with a recovery and that recovery tells you how much strain your body is capable of taking on.

PSFK - Editorial Roundtable - Building An All-Encompassing Performance Suite
Sports are the ultimate meritocracy. And so, athletes, coaches, trainers, statisticians, broadcasters, and diehard fans cringe at the use of any unfair advantage that lies outside the realm of strategy and god-given talent. (Think: performance-enhancing drugs). They perhaps do so little knowing that, as PSFK Labs‘ latest report, the Sports Debrief, tells us, the Future of Sport not only promises untold performance enhancement but will come to be defined by it. Think: performance-enhancing analytics, performance-enhancing immersive training, even performance-enhancing sensory deprivation tanks in which your mind and spirit are treated to their own heightening.
PSFK - PSFK Picks - Top 5 Performance-Enhancing Wearables
Fitness wearables are becoming more comprehensive of a wide range of detailed body metrics, indicating a shift towards holistic health, whole body nutrition, and personalized optimization. Though counting calories is important, it’s only one step toward leading a healthy lifestyle. From form-correcting vibrations to pain relief through nerve stimulation, these technologies show that sustainable, active performance is influenced by a variety of factors. PSFK Labs’ The Sports Debrief details the latest technology utilized by the sports industry. Here are 5 performance-enhancing wearables that help athletes of all levels perform stronger and smarter.
Bleacher Report - Next Big Thing - Sleep Science Is Becoming the NFL's Secret Weapon
Imagine a conference championship game five or 10 years from now. The road team, having traveled to London and Las Vegas for its previous playoff games, arrives in Foxborough and engineers a shocking upset with the help of a surprising strategy: Even though the team's quarterback is an All-Pro known for picking apart defenses, it employs a scaled-back, run-heavy game plan. The head coach explains his daring tactical shift at the postgame press conference. "Well, Deshaun's sleep hygiene has been terrible because of all our travel," he says. "Our monitors recorded a 37 percent reduction in high-order decision-making because of poor sleep. Meanwhile, Ezekiel's sleep hygiene has been great, speeding his recovery from that high ankle sprain. So we decided to pound the ball between the tackles."
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.
