You Can Now Get Your Hands On The Wearable That Helps Olympians Perform Better
The professional fitness tracker worn by the best athletes in the world is being offered in limited availability to the general public
Wearables like Fitbit and Garmin seemed to wholly satisfy a large swarm of fitness enthusiasts until smart watches swooped in. And with their touchscreen displays and app compatibility the category quickly surfaced as the new standard for wearables, outperforming the once-beloved display-less wrist doctors. But who is to say the race is lost? With critical insights neglected by Apple and the rest of the wearable industry, a new player has risen to fame among the Olympic community, and has just recently entered the market for us less-than-professional athletes and health nuts. WHOOP is a performance-monitoring system that can evaluate strain and recovery by measuring and analyzing heart rate variability (HRV), ambient temperature and motion, and other data points.
