WHOOP 3.0 - Android Connectivity and Pairing

This article covers the steps to pair your WHOOP 3.0 to an Android phone.

3.0 - Android Connectivity and Pairing 

To activate connectivity and pairing on your Android device, make sure power-saving and airplane modes are both off during this process. Additionally, confirm that location permissions have been granted and your WHOOP 3.0 is charged. 

NOTE: The Android operating system requires location permission to be granted in order to scan for Bluetooth Low Energy devices.

WHOOP 3.0 Pairing Process 

  1. Tap the WHOOP sensor. While you’re tapping the sensor, the battery level indicator lights will activate. You may also see a combination of red/white flashing lights on the side of the sensor. Continue tapping the sensor until it enters pairing mode. This process may take up to 15-20 seconds.
    • The sensor will remain in pairing mode until it finishes successfully pairing (up to 3 minutes). After the WHOOP 3.0 finishes pairing, the light sequence will stop. If you're still unable to connect, you will need to re-initiate the pairing mode.
  2. In your phone's Settings app, open the Bluetooth settings menu. Scan for a device, and select the WHOOP 3.0 once it's discovered.
  3. Once the WHOOP 3.0 is successfully paired in your phone's Bluetooth settings, reopen the WHOOP app on your phone.
  4. Open the WHOOP App menu and navigate to Device Settings.
  5. Select Pair a Device.
  6. Allow permission for WHOOP to use your current location.
  7. Select Connect. Your device should now be paired. 

Android OS 10 or above:

In most cases, you should be able to re-pair your WHOOP 3.0 through the following steps:

  1. Force Stop the WHOOP app by opening your device's Settings app and navigate to Apps & Notifications, then select WHOOP and Force Stop.
  2. Within your device's Settings menu, navigate to Bluetooth Settings
  3. Select Forget/Unpair on any existing WHOOP devices (within the list of currently or previously connected devices). 
  4. Remove the WHOOP 3.0 from your wrist and place it in pairing mode.
  5. To activate pairing mode, wait until the green sensor LEDs on the underside of the sensor turn off. This green sensor must remain off while activating pairing mode.
  6. Tap the top of the sensor firmly and repeatedly until one white LED strobes back and forth on the side of the sensor. 
  7. Open the WHOOP App menu and navigate to Device Settings, then select Pair a Device. 
  8. Allow permission for WHOOP to use your current location.
  9. Select Connect. Your device should now be paired.
