Literally flip your phone into landscape mode with the app home on the home tab. Ensure rotate lock is off on your phone and if it doesn’t work try closing the app, reopening it, then rotating the phone to landscape mode (tilt mode seekers finicky since the big UI revamp).
I use a Vivosmart 4 also. The only thing that bothers me is I am pretty sure the sleep tracking isn’t even close. There are days where it says I fell asleep over an hour before I even get in bed. And it never captures when I wake up in the night, even if I physically get out of bed to put a kid back to sleep.
I bought it for daily use and mostly for golf though. So I’ve been generally happy with it.
Yeah that’s more like an Alpha/Beta bug, than V1. Looking at the timing of the notifications I got on Tuesday & Wednesday it’s set to push notifications at midnight UTC, which is mid afternoon Pacific time. So like I said lazy coding, lack of attention to detail.
Seems harsh. You don’t have to like Whoop, especially at a subscription model of ~$22/month if you go annual. I get it, hefty price means hefty expectations. But I don’t understand getting upset at the timing of a specific, daily notification you can simply turn off. To chalk it to “lazy coding” is extreme. The feature seems to align with a MVP mindset. Ship something with value that may not have all the bells and whistles and iterate on it/add features as you go. I wouldn’t call a daily notification you can’t customize the timing a bug (in my mind that doesn’t even fit the definition of a bug) or show stopper. But that is the Agile evangelist in me talking.
It’s not any one thing that irritates me about whoop, it’s the cumulative total of all the little things.
For me personally it’s been worth it to learn what to look for in RHR, HRV, strain, etc, but the value has fallen off from there now that battery life is worse with the latest version of hardware, and new features of questionable value. e.g. in the new app when it detects an activity it no longer defaults mine to cycling, its an activity and I have to go in every time and change it, as well as update the wear location. How many times do I need to input the same information for it to take as a default activity and default location for where the device is worn for an activity? Apparently a great deal because it’s yet to figure it out yet.
No, for the cost, even at the much lower price for an 18 month subscription, it doesn’t deliver value commensurate with price.
Fair and absolutely valid. I still like my Whoop and did an annual re-up this winter. I have been liking the new features like the revamped activity and home page UI.
I like my Whoop for the long term data, like how I am progressing (or not) over 6 months or years at a time. In terms of day to day: unless I am deep in red or sick will I let a 50% recovery stop me from doing an interval workout? Nope. But as of now the long term data view justifies the price for me. But I can easily see how it wouldn’t for everybody.
A very narcisstic question but… would it look ridiculous to have an Apple Watch on one wrist and a Whoop on the other? I feel naked without something on my wrist, whilst I can imagine one on each wrist feels odd, but do like a lot of the features of each
