We caught up with a friend when we went to Canberra and she was wearing a Whoop. I hadn’t heard of them so we asked her about it. In essence it’s a device that tracks your bodies performance, and is for anyone.

If you look at sports people at the top of their game e.g. golf and tennis, you’ll see them wearing a Whoop. That said, I’m having fun exploring the information that’s coming back to me through the Whoop app and learning more about myself.

My initial interest was in tracking my blood oxygen levels, which Whoop does. When I was doing a lung assessment, back in 2020, my blood oxygen levels came up ‘low’. I wasn’t told what low meant, but I’d be interested in asking now! Having a tool that reports to me what my blood oxygen levels are, playing around with how I can increase them and monitoring them has been really beneficial to me.

Other things Whoop measures is:

  • Sleep
  • Stress
  • Recovery
  • Strain
  • Heart Rate
  • Heart Rate Variability (another key health indicator for me, and I didn’t know it until I had a Whoop)
  • Respiratory Rate
  • Skin temperature
  • Calories (this is good to see the energy we need each day to ensure our bodies can function)

Whoop then gives recommendations on what to shift to create your optimal wellness.

In effect, it monitors our ‘normal’ and then helps us achieve that and optimise it.
