WHOOP is introducing a Health Monitor and Dashboard feature to help members discover and understand their bodies on a whole new level.
Both 3.0 + 4.0 users will have access to Health Monitor, with visibility on the following metrics: live Heart Rate (HR), Respiratory Rate (RR), Resting Heart Rate (RHR), and Heart Rate Variability (HRV). Pulse oximetry measurement of SPO2 (blood oxygen) + Skin Temperature metrics are exclusive to WHOOP 4.0. The Health Monitor dashboard gives you a big picture look at your overall health and monitors the key metrics in your body.
Disclaimer: *WHOOP is NOT an FDA-approved medical device for diagnosing disease or illness. While the Health Monitor can help members keep track of their body's physiological data and maintain proactive insight into key health metrics, WHOOP and/or Health Monitor is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice and should not be relied on as such. We recommend always seeking the guidance of your doctor or qualified health care professional regarding any questions you may have on your health or any medical condition.
View Your Health at a Glance
In the past, key health metrics were found in different areas within the WHOOP app. Health Monitor centralizes all of this data to provide a one-stop overview on your health.
Monitor Key Metrics
The Health Monitor gives you a big picture look at your overall health and tracks the following key metrics of your body:
- Live Heart Rate (HR)
- Respiratory Rate (RR)
- Heart Rate Variability (HRV)
- Resting Heart Rate (RHR)
- Blood Oxygen (SPO2 - pulse oximetry monitoring)
- Skin Temperature
NOTE: Health Monitor puts these metrics front and center within the app, displayed on the Home page and the Coaching tab.
Obtain Real Time Updates on Improvements and Irregularities
WHOOP's Health Monitor calibrates to your individual baseline, and keeps you updated on your normal/average metrics. Additionally, Health Monitor sends you simple, color-coded displays to indicate when your vitals may be deviating from your typical baseline range (by highlighting abnormalities). With the exception of blood oxygen, WHOOP calculates all deviation thresholds by looking at the variance of an individual's personalized/baseline data.
*In the app, abnormal metrics (below/above normal) will be indicated in orange.
With the Health Monitor, you can also export your 30 or 180 day health data trends into a shareable/printable PDF health report - and share with your coach, trainer, Primary Care Physician (PCP) or general healthcare provider.
- NOTE: Health Reports begin generating immediately after the member starts using/wearing WHOOP.
- Currently, the Health Report is only available for access in the mobile app.
How to Access
The Health Monitor screen is accessible via the Coaching tab in the WHOOP app.
For New Members:
- The metrics within the Health Monitor will calibrate for 7 recoveries to get an accurate baseline.
- Once calibration is complete, you will see the complete screen view of the Health Monitor.
- Meanwhile, the overview component, or what's located on the overview screen of the member's profile, won't appear until you have achieved 14 recoveries. This is how we alert members when their statistics are out of range.
For Existing Members: (with at least 30 days of data in app)
Existing members will not have a calibration period for any metric besides Skin Temperature, which will also accrue after 7 days.
- On the overview screen, you will see 4 readings instead of 5 for these days.
- You will only see the current day (of) on your Health Monitor. Even if you jump to other days, the current day's readings will pop up when you click/tap on the Monitor.
The coaching landing view page displays all Health Monitor metrics and icons indicating alert status.
- Tapping anywhere on the cell will open the Health Monitor view.
- Tapping on any of the metric cells within the Health Monitor view will open a modal explaining the metric.
- If there is an alert, potential reasons for the alert will be provided in the modal as well: (see below image)
Member's Previous Day has Same Metrics in the Health Monitor
When you click on the Health Monitor, it will take you to today’s Health Monitor metrics. At this time, members are not able to access the previous day’s metrics via Health Monitor.
Error Reading All Metrics for the Previous Night
To view the Health Monitor, you must have at least 14 recoveries logged. Additionally, sleep data is required to show any metrics on the Health Monitor for the current day. At this time, you cannot view the previous data for the Health Monitor. If your sleep did not process properly, please let us know and we can connect you with our Analytic Support team to resolve that issue.
Elevated Skin Temp from WHOOP Body
Wearing the sensor on a different part of the body with WHOOP Body may affect skin surface readings.
Health Monitor is “Green” but Recovery Score is “Red”
The alerting criteria for the Health Monitor are different from Recovery. The Recovery score uses weighted averages and only looks at the previous 28 days of data, giving more weight to the previous 7 days -- the Health Monitor looks at the last 90 days and determines normal averages within 1.9 standard deviations.
Health Monitor Metrics Change Suddenly
All metrics are taken during sleep and the previous 90 days of Recoveries are used to calculate baselines. A few days of illness with lower or higher than average data points can change baselines in the health monitor. To view the Health Monitor, recent sleep data is required to show any metrics on the Health Monitor for the current day.
