Mobile App Overview and Breakdown 

You can navigate the major pillars in the WHOOP app directly from the Overview screen.

  • Profile/Athlete Bio: By tapping on your profile picture (Above the Overview tab), you'll be redirected to your Athlete Bio, where you can view your Total Recoveries, Last 30 Days and All Time summaries. 
  • Strain Tab: View your current Day's Strain.
  • Recovery Tab: View your current Recovery level, including your Heart Rate Variability, Resting Heart Rate, and Respiratory Rate (from the previous night's Sleep). 
  • Sleep Tab: View your previous night's Sleep Performance, including Hours of Sleep vs. Sleep Needed. 
  • Within each tab, swiping upwards on the app will bring you to a 7-day trend view for each Pillar: Strain, Recovery, Sleep.  From there, select the View Monthly Trends button to view 1-month trends.  Check out Viewing Trends for more information.

From the Menu, (bottom of the mobile app screen), you'll see five icons:  


  • Home/Overview Page - shows your current day's Recovery level, HRV, Current Day Strain, and Calories Burned in a circular WHOOP graph. Additionally, a link to your previous night's Sleep and any logged activities are nested under the Start Activity icon. 


  • Strain/Coaching Tab: (Battery icon) - Strain Coach gives you a daily Strain recommendation based on your previous night's recovery. Sleep Coach gives you suggested Bedtime, Recommended Time in Bed, and Suggested Wake Time.
  • Links to your Weekly/Monthly Performance Assessments.
