Activity Detection is a feature that identifies periods of elevated heart rate and higher-than-average movement, and logs them as Activities in the WHOOP app. Activity Detection can help identify times when you are active or working out, removing the requirement to start and stop an activity or add one after the fact.
Periods of elevated heart rate and movement may not be logged as activities if they are:
- Under 15 minutes in length, and
- The Strain for the resulting Activity is under an 8
- You disabled Activity Detection in your app
Activities will be automatically logged once Activity Detection determines that your heart rate has returned to and maintained a normal level. This may take up to 20 minutes after the end of a workout or activity.
Should you need to discard an Activity, tap “Discard” at the top left of the screen after finishing the activity or sleep.
