What To Do If You Lost Your Whoop Strap?
The first thing you should do is not lose your calm; there’s a big chance that the strap is around you, but you haven’t found it yet.
So start by checking on the places that you probably place it, such as the regular charging point, your bathroom, bedroom, and living room. If the tracker isn’t on the charging port, try the bathroom, it could probably be close to the sink, or the shower, having in mind that you usually take it out after a shower.
When it comes to the living room, try to check on your couch, lots of people find their Whoop strap in between the sofa cushions.
If you still can’t find it, try looking inside your car. Another common place to find it is close to your seat or just sitting on the dashboard.
If you still can’t find your strap, you should check your gym bag and pockets. Or even the gym itself. normally after or during a workout, you are going to be wearing your fitness tracker, so if you took it out for a workout after-shower you may leave it in the gym’s bathroom or your gym bag.
Last but not least you could check on your laundry room, there’s so many times that you keep your tracker on your pockets, such as your pants or jacket, and then totally forget about it, to the point that you put the clothes on the watching machine without even remembering that you have your Whoop strap on your clothes.
Can I find my Lost Whoop using GPS?
Most High-end fitness trackers and smartwatches come with built-in GPS, to accurately track your steps and distance, while you can track distance within the WHOOP app, the tracker itself does not include a built-in GPS, instead, they will use your smartphone GPS. You need to pair up your phone with your strap and in this way, you can use the GPS function.
So in the case that you went for a run, and you previously have your phone connected with your strap, you can start a new activity that uses GPS such as a new running route, and see where the GPS pins the starting position. In that way, you will have at least a proximity to where your strap can be.
