Whoop has introduced a new generation of the eponymous device designed to monitor physical activity. The manufacturer itself calls Whoop 4.0 “a personalized digital fitness and health trainer that works 24/7.” While the images suggest the Whoop 4.0 is a bracelet, the wrist is only one option for placing the device. The Any-Wear technology is said to allow the Whoop 4.0 to be worn on different parts of the body (the device automatically detects if it’s on an arm, leg, or torso). Sports bras, compression tops, leggings, shorts and sports boxers are available for wearing the Whoop Body module.

The device is capable of detecting heart rate, blood oxygen level, skin temperature, heart rate variability, and respiration rate.

The device differs from the previous model in smaller size, more accurate sensors, a new Sleep Coach function, which can wake up the user at the optimal time with a gentle vibration. An important feature of Whoop 4.0 is its battery. As previously reported, this is the world’s first battery powered device with Sila silicon anodes. The new battery with improved cell configuration and longer lifespan is said to be 17% more energy dense than the battery used in the Whoop 3.0. The battery life of the device is five days.

The device is paired with a smartphone. This allows you to collect and analyze data, share it with doctors, trainers and nutritionists.

The business model invented by Whoop is interesting. The devices are not for sale, but are given out free of charge as part of the membership in the users’ club. To join the club, you need to pay a fixed amount (from $ 54 to $ 109, depending on the chosen design option – by the way, there are much more of them than shown in the picture), after which you pay $ 18 monthly for access to the application.

MSI MEG CoreLiquid S High-Performance LSS Introduced

Published

on

MSI has unveiled the MEG CoreLiquid S series of liquid cooling systems developed in collaboration with Asetek. The series includes two models with aluminum radiators 280 mm and 360 mm long. The radiators are equipped with low-noise MSI MEG Silent Gale fans that turn on only when needed, and a 2.4-inch IPS display is built into the pump cover. The 7th generation Asetek pump features improved leakage resistance and increased durability.

The blades of the aforementioned fans are made of Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP), a dense plastic with a low coefficient of thermal expansion. Their shape ensures maximum airflow. The rotor is supported by a hydrodynamic bearing to reduce noise and increase service life. Anti-vibration bushings are pressed in the corners of the fan frame. The rotation speed is adjustable in the range of 0-2000 rpm. The maximum speed corresponds to a flow of 95.54 m3/ h and a noise level of 22.7 dBA.

Samsung mobile head Tae Moon Roh (TM Roh) confirmed that he has made two work visits to the United States this year to obtain more stocks of chips and application processors needed to make smartphones.

According to TheElec, Tae Moon Ro met with major component manufacturers in the US to get more chips and asked major partners to increase shipments for the South Korean tech giant. However, according to sources close to this, the trips did not end as Samsung planned.

The first trip was made in March, the second took place in July. The source also added that the president of Samsung Mobile visited the headquarters of the global SoC maker in July and asked for additional chips, but was ultimately denied.

The component maker responded to Tae Moon Ro that the company also wants to increase its total supply, but cannot yet increase shipments for Samsung. The source adds that Tae Moon Ro was also accompanied by the vice president, who stayed in the United States after the division head’s visit and returned to South Korea after staying there for about three months.

However, a company spokesman said that their trips still cannot be called completely unsuccessful, since they really led to the fact that the brand was able to increase sales a little.
