Whoop has updated its smartphone app with new trends views pages. You can now see weekly, monthly, and 6-month data in addition to daily data. All presented in charts.
These trend views allow you to see your performance over longer time periods, which makes it easier to assess the cumulative effects of small, daily changes. This format of tracking stats can help you better understand your overall fitness gains (or losses). It can also help identify any potential issues, such as illness or overtraining.
Perfect timing when so many of have set New Year’s resolutions. According to estimates, approximately 40% of people make these types of promises, but only about 8% of them achieve the set goals. Don’t be one of them.
You are more likely to keep your resolutions if you start with small, attainable goals and gradually build them up over time. However, in order to stay motivated, you must track your progress.
A user, for example, might set a goal to spend more time in deep sleep or to lower their resting heart rate. By tracking their progress on a regular basis they can adjusting their habits as needed, such as implementing a consistent sleep schedule or adding more cardiovascular exercise to their routine.
How to access the new Whoop trends views
This format allows you to view a selection of statistics including the following:
- Sleep trends: sleep performance, hours versus need, and time spent in bed.
- Strain trends: day strain, calories burned, and average heart rate.
- Recovery trends: recovery score, resting heart rate, heart rate variability, and respiratory rate.
Simply go to the Sleep, Strain, or Recovery section of the app and scroll down to “View Weekly Trends” or tap “View Monthly Trends” to access trends views.
Here are a few examples of how this appears in the smartphone app. At a glance you can see whether your performance is improving or not. The chart also shows a % change between the different periods. As with all stats in the app, you can scroll backward or forwards in time.
Some may believe that Whoop is only for professional athletes, but this is not the case. Anyone who is serious about their training will benefit from the wearable. I’m currently training for the Paris marathon, and it’s allowing me to run farther and faster than ever before while avoiding fatigue and burnout.

The device assists you in better understanding the intricacies of your body and how to properly refuel. This ultimately helps you train smarter. Other brands are trying to emulate Whoop’s recovery stats, but they still have a lot of catching up to do. Particularly when it comes to presentation of information and the depth of insights.
Some new updates are expected in the coming months. Rumor has it that these will “give users additional reason to wear Whoop 24/7”. It will be interesting to see what features lie ahead.
