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.
FastCompany - 7 Wearable Breakthroughs To Watch For In Rio
As of writing, the United States has won 84 medals at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, almost twice as many as any other country competing this year, and the most gold medals Team USA has ever won at a single Olympic Games.

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
The ‘WHOOP’ performance optimization system is a sophisticated device that offers elite athletes, coaches, and trainers the ability to harness physiological data tracked through the wearable to inform specific training and game day decisions. formally developed by aruliden, in collaboration with the WHOOP team, it is the first scientifically grounded wristband that provides users with a full understanding and awareness of their bodies. What sets WHOOP apart from other similar products on the market is that it uses complex metrics like skin conductivity and accelerometry, to analyze the body throughout the day.

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.
Golf Digest - The same body data analytics Olympic athletes use now for golfers
As golf becomes more and more driven by the data analytics provided by every device from launch monitors to GPS watches, the next source getting analyzed might be the most important and the most data-rich: the human body. The latest training monitor is from a Boston-based startup called WHOOP (According to founder and CEO Will Ahmed, the name comes from an expression of energy and excitement for exercise and competition.) WHOOP’s device is being used by several Olympic athletes, as well as players and teams in the NBA, NHL, NFL, Major League Baseball, Major League Soccer, the Barclay’s Premier League, and many major college conference teams.

USA Today - Wearable apps help Olympic athletes train at their best
Four days out from his first race in the U.S. Olympic swimming trials, Connor Jaeger arrived in Omaha earlier than usual to give his body time to recover from the stress of traveling. How did the Olympian know he needed a couple of extra days to compete at his best? An application called WHOOP told him so. Jaeger and several other Olympians are taking advantage of fitness tools, such as WHOOP, that help them prepare for the Rio Games by measuring their bodies’ stress and strain and making recommendations for training adjustments to maximize peak performance.
