I was able to test the Whoop fitness tracker in its third iteration at the beginning of this year and was quite impressed, even if the running costs are high. It is aimed at the target group of ambitious amateur athletes or professionals who value body monitoring. The company is now introducing Whoop 4.0, the improved sensor configuration of which is intended to ensure even more precise monitoring and to record blood oxygen (new), skin temperature (new) and heart rate. In addition, the gadget has become 33 percent smaller. The battery life should still be five days.
Sleep-Coach is also new, a tracker can vibrate to act as your alarm clock at optimal times. You can also adjust sleep and wake up times individually. The health monitor gives you improved information about trends in your heart rate, skin temperature and blood oxygen content. The battery pack is finally waterproof. I’ve already taken a shower with Pack twice myself.
