BOSTON, May 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- WHOOP, the human performance company known for its groundbreaking wearable device, is proud to introduce the next generation WHOOP Strap 3.0. The update unlocks WHOOP Live - a suite of enhanced features that provides unrivaled live data collection.
WHOOP is a 24/7 coach designed to improve training, sleep and lifestyle choices with real-time feedback on the body. Its effortless social media integration further augments the user experience with compelling graphic design and easy in-app capture for ultimate connectivity. WHOOP Strap 3.0 users can share live data and progress with trainers, coaches, friends, and connect with the WHOOP community at large. WHOOP Live features include:
- Strain Coach: Get exertion level recommendations based on the body's recovery. When training begins, WHOOP will show whether the user needs to push harder, is overdoing it, or has reached their goal.
- WHOOP Snap+: Overlay WHOOP data onto videos or photos. Whether recording alone or with a trainer/friend, the user can see how strain, heart rate, and calories evolve over the course of any activity. Videos and photos can be saved, analyzed, and shared.
- HR Broadcast: Users can easily connect to their favorite BLE compatible apps and devices, including Peloton, Wahoo computers, Concept2 ergometers, Strava, and TrainerRoad.
Sporting innovative technological enhancements to its industrial design, WHOOP Strap 3.0 ships with the new ProKnit band. The bands are stretchy and sturdy, engineered for maximum comfort, sweat absorption and pressure displacement. Optimizations in hardware, firmware, Bluetooth, and data architecture have contributed to an unprecedented 5-day battery life (considerably longer than the WHOOP Strap 2.0's 40-hour charge). The new WHOOP also offers an opportunity to reflect users' personal style, launching in three new colors: Onyx, Carbide and Arctic.

- Founder & CEO, Will Ahmed
