Is Whoop 4.0 Waterproof?
If you do not know already then let me tell you, there is a very big difference between waterproof and water-resistant. In layman’s terms, waterproof means nothing can happen to the device irrespective of how deep under the water you take it. On the other hand, water resistance means there is a limit to how deep you can take it under the water. If you take it deeper than its limit then water will get into the smartwatch or watch and it will get damaged because as you go deeper, the water pressure increases. So technically no watch or smartwatch in the world can be fully waterproof but they come with some water resistance capabilities.
Whoop 4.0 is not waterproof but it comes with IP68 dust and water resistance capability. According to Whoop, Whoop 4.0 tracker can survive up to 10 meters underwater for a maximum of 2 hours.
Is Whoop 3.0 Waterproof?
No, Whoop 3.0 is not waterproof. However, it does come with a 30M water resistance capability. This is ironic that Whoop 3.0 comes with greater water resistance capability as compared to Whop 4.0. The whoop 4.0 band is supposed to be an upgraded version of Whoop 3.0 but it doesn’t seem to be applied to the water-resistant capabilities.
Is Whoop Strap Waterproof?
No, the Whoop strap is not waterproof, but since it is not made up of leather so water will not damage it. Therefore you can wear it while showering and swimming.
Is Whoop Battery Waterproof?
No, the Whoop battery is not waterproof. However, Whoop 4.0’s battery pack is IP68 certified and Whoop claims that it is water-resistant up to 1 meter. It claims that the Whoop battery pack can survive for up to two hours when put 1 meter deep inside the water.
Therefore, I will not advise you to wear your Whoop 4.0 battery pack while swimming but you can wear it while showering.
If you own Whoop 3.0 then its battery pack is not water-resistant and you should not get it anywhere near even water splashes.
Can You Shower With Whoop?
Now that we know Whoop 4.0 and Whoop 3.0 both offer some kind of water resistance so the question that arises is: Can you shower with a Whoop band?
Yes, you can take a shower with your Whoop tracker, it does not matter whether it is 4.0 or 3.0.
Can You Wear Whoop While Swimming?
Yes, you can wear Whoop 4.0 and 3.0 bands while swimming. As discussed earlier, both bands come with some kind of water resistance which is more than enough to protect your watch in the pool.
In fact, Whoop claims that you can even wear a Whoop band in salt water. This means you can even swim in an ocean with it. However, the thing that you need to note here is Whoop tracker cannot be used while doing scuba diving or diving.
Can You Surf With Whoop?
I could not find anything related to Whoop and surfing, and I myself did not wear it to surfing as well. So I cannot really say for sure if you can surf with your Whoop band or not.
However, neither Whoop 4.0 nor Whoop 3.0 offer suitable water resistance to be worn during surfing. Therefore I would not recommend you to surf with your Whoop band.
Should You Shower With Your Whoop Band?
Yes, you can shower with Whoop 4.0 and 3.0 as long as you do not use any harmful chemicals like shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, etc. during your shower. If you use such chemicals then these can harm the water resistance of your Whoop band. And with time your Whoop tracker will get damaged. So if you want to continue using soaps, shampoo, shower gel, etc. then you should probably not wear your Whoop tracker while showering.
