You’ve likely already seen these stylish straps on the wrists of some of your favorite athletes. Whoop (@whoop) sets the standard for wearable sleep and recovery tracking, so it isn’t surprising that the brand has a famous fan base. The Whoop Strap 3.0 follows a membership model to deliver highly personalized data straight to your smartphone. Perhaps the most impressive part of the membership is access to Whoop’s Sleep Coach and Strain Coach. When it’s time for some R&R, Whoop offers personalized sleep recommendations and insights to help you nail your ideal sleep and wake time. While you’re hard at work, Whoop is working even harder to deliver real-time data that will help you determine whether you need to pull back or push harder.
You’ve heard it before: The secret to a healthy body is balance. Oura (@ouraring) understands this, which is why it’s developed technology designed to monitor both your activity and recovery. Combining advanced sensor technology and minimal design, the sleek wearable delivers precise, personalized health insights straight from your finger. While you sleep, Oura tracks everything from your sleep cycles to your sleep efficiency and restfulness so you can wake up with the insight you need for the day ahead. During the day, the ring tracks data such as calories burned and steps taken. Above all else, Oura prides itself on precision. The stylish band measures your pulse directly from the arteries in your finger and uses infrared light sensors for a level of accuracy not yet achieved by traditional fitness tech alternatives.
