Got my bicep strap today - not the compression sleeve style, just the longer version of the wrist strap. It's way more comfortable than wearing on the wrist. If anyone is debating between the two, I recommend the bicep option.

One gripe I have with the strap/app is that I wish I would get a notification when the battery drops below 15%. Maybe there's a way to do this and I just haven't looked hard enough yet.

Seems like something they could add to the app if it's not in there already.

Though, 15% is like 20+ hours of usage.

Yeah, it does have good battery life. Maybe 5% or something. There have been a couple times when I've left for work, gone golfing or other outdoor activity, or gone to bed without checking the battery, and then found out later that the strap died and end up with missing data. Not a huge deal, but a "time to charge" reminder would be nice.

I made a reminder on my phone to charge it every 4 days. I'm thinking of making that every 5 or 6.

I'll have to turn notifications on for the Whoop app then I guess. I hate notifications, so I disable them on just about every app except messaging/phone.

I suppose I hate majority of the notifications various apps provide 😄.

I find them to be digital clutter. I wish app developers would program more notification customization. Like I don't need to know instantaneously when a new email arrives, or when Amazon delivers a package, or when a new season of a show is available to stream, which is why my default is to have them all off.

I turned them on for Whoop, and I'll see how annoying the notifications are.

I didn't get a notification and I could have sworn I turned notifications on. I'll have to check that as well. I'm like @iacas though, I set a reminder to charge every 4-5 days. When I received mine in the mail, I immediately threw it on. It was not fully charged and it took 5 days to get low enough for me to consider charging. Outstanding battery life in my opinion.

I may have to try the bicep strap sooner than I thought. I noticed this morning that my skin is drying out under the whoop in its current location. Not sure if that is from sweat or what.

My HRV was up today, back up north of 60, and I wonder if it's not partly because of the SI joint stuff I've got going on right now.

10_Ways_to_Increase_HRV_whoop-scaled-1.j

Heart rate variability (HRV) is a valuable metric for determining physical fitness and your body’s readiness to perform. Here are 10 ways to increase HRV.

Anyway, there's a decent article. I just read it, so I hope it wasn't posted earlier (but also, if it was, oh well).

I got a notice to charge up yesterday, but I delayed it a day and will charge it today, this afternoon. It’s at 25%.

My recoveries have been good the past few days. I’m dealing with some major SI joint displacement which caused some muscle pain the past two days. I went to the chiropractor and he did a good amount of work today, and I think that stuff will help, but… I almost wonder if being injured isn’t doing something to change the HRV at night. I didn’t sleep well two nights ago. I slept pretty well last night, despite the pain, and woke up with less. Maybe if your body is occasionally getting little pain sensations, I wonder if that affects HRV.

I actually received the notification as well. I just got busy and forgot to charge my charger.  Very good question about the pain sensations. I am curious about that now as well. I am 42, so pain sensations have become a bit normal. Mine are mainly in my knee where I had a torn meniscus. I believe it's arthritis pain.

I've gotten notifications for below 20% and below 10% - aside from the battery notifications, the Whoop app isn't overly obnoxious with regards to notifications, so I think will leave them on for now. I should probably set a reminder for 5 days to charge, or I may just spend $50 on a spare battery pack to keep in my work backpack for situations like @TN94z's.

I still haven't been able to make much cause/effect determination for recovery yet. I'm getting better about making journal entries so I can have some sense of what was going on during the day when I look back on the data. Some weeks I will be yellow/green the entire week, and then this week has been all red/yellow. I did have one day back in August where my recovery was 1%, which was after an evening where I had more drinks than usual. I rarely consume any alcohol, so even 1-2 glasses of wine can wreak havoc on me, and I think on this night I might have consumed at least 4.

I got one today for < 20%. It’s unobtrusive.

Tough week for my whoop so far ...haha. I ran off and left it yesterday morning when I left for work. And this morning, I ran off and left my charger. We had a Thanksgiving dinner yesterday and some other things happened that had my mind in other places.

I should have told my wife to wait a few days. Her whoop should be here today.

    • I think this is the key comparison. Why do men get an average of 23% higher ratings but have a purse that's 127% higher. Granted that purse is the US Open, not an average like that ratings number is. But my impression just from watching over the years is that the average men's purse is nowhere close to only 23% higher than the average women's purse. World Surf League's equal prize money stand for men and women The World Surf League has announced an equal prize money structure for male and female competitors, becoming the first US-based sports... WSL events are as or nearly as frequent as (L)PGA events.
    • Not really. I don’t know if you’ve heard of Jim Venetos...we discussed his swing on this site. I swing from a position that I hold...closed stance and remain quite still on the back swing. So honestly I’m pretty consistent with my driver and figured a little longer shaft would give me some more yards. My accuracy was a little less as when I did make a mistake ( like opening too much on my downswing) my cut would be a little more drastic than with the shorter length. 
    • But that has been the rule in the LPGA since late 2010, more than 10 years.  The NCAA already allows transgender players to compete in women's sports, with some stipulations.  I don't see the Executive Order as changing much of what goes on in women's golf.
    • But this doesn't affect golf or the LPGA Tour. LPGA players vote to allow transgender women golfers LPGA players have voted to allow transgender players to compete on tour in response to a lawsuit filed by a California woman who had her sex changed five years ago. That's ten years ago. They scrapped the "female at birth" clause in 2010.
    • Thank you.  Truer words were never spoken.  But if I cut out golf, cocktails, girls and coffee I'd be a wealthy man... but where's the fun in that???
