    Happy new year all :)

    I’ve been using a Fitbit Charge 2 for the last couple years to track my runs/heartbeat/sleep.

    Recently seen some good reviews for the Whoop 3 - has anyone used a Whoop before and recommend it?

    The above might be a sponsored review so I’m not taking it as gospel but does sound pretty good as an upgrade to a Fitbit.

    Thanks in advance

    There’s a monthly sub with it I think.

    You’d get the same features etc with a garmin watch and the likes for no extra charge. Like always I’d take the stats with a pitch of salt then anything exact.

    You could be lying in bed wide awake and not be moving and they’ll probably say you are fast asleep

    DC Rainmakers review of it isn’t very good

    Another review of it here, mentions dodgy HR accuracy for sports but apart from that reasonably positive.

    Just a quick response, I had it two years ago, might have improved since then, but band fell apart after 6 months, know that has been changed since but for the money spent, you'd expect it to last. Also max heart rate was always about 15 beats higher than chest strap.
    I had unexplained high hrv days after very high strain days. Also very hard to fit it in with a training plan as some days you have to train regardless of what the whoop is advising.
    Also doesn't take into account injuries or muscle soreness, hrv might be indicating ready to train hard.
