This was my Whoop data after a 6 hour bike ride. Note that it actually hit 19.9 by the end of the day! It resets at midnight.
In June-2020, I started using a Whoop activity tracker. I justified the investment because I needed a sleep coach given I typically only sleep on average 6 hrs/night.
I also loved that Whoop offers a monthly fee w/o a big up front investment. This turned out to be a lifesaver because after 2 weeks, I sent it back.
This page is to share my personal experiences in using it.
First off - I'm recognizing that although I'm only get 6 hours/night sleep on average, I think I'm getting as much deep sleep as my wife (who gets 8 hours/might on average).
And it's all about getting deep sleep, isn't it?
Last night was the first night in a long time I actually got 8 hours of sleep, which resulted in a better recovery score:
(Note: I was in bed before 6pm due to feeling totally exhausted!)
This is the best video I've found that explains how to use the Whoop. I find the documentation/tutorials
