There is a common question that many people have is – “Does Whoop work with Peloton?”
The straightforward answer is Yes. Whoop bands can work with Peloton to give you real-time feedback on your heart rate and help you optimize your workout.
This guide covers using Whoop with Peloton and answers some frequently asked questions about it.
Let’s Dive In!
Does Whoop Straps Work with Peloton?
Whoop Straps can be paired with Peloton for monitoring regular heart rate while taking the peloton classes. In fact, Whoop can be a great companion for Peloton users to monitor other information, including training evaluation, recovery monitoring, sleep tracking, and calorie tracking.
For a side note, Peloton Bikes generally use Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) or ANT+ technology to connect to third-party devices. If your device has either of them, you can successfully connect it to Peloton.
Thankfully, Whoop Strap 3.0 and 4.0 come with Bluetooth Low Energy technology that makes them Peloton compatible. Similarly, popular devices like Polar H10/H9/Verity Sense, Wahoo Tickr, and OTBeat Flex works with Peloton. You’re good to go if you have any of them.

Tips to Fix Whoop Not Connecting to Peloton
Ensure HR Broadcast Is Toggled ON
Even if you’re connected with Peloton, there are chances of not receiving Whoop’s heart rate data. This happens when you forgot to turn on the “HR Broadcast” feature from the Whoop app.
Even if the HR Broadcast feature was previously enabled, it may automatically switch off after a recent update. I recommend double-checking whether the HR Broadcast feature is enabled.
Here’s how to enable HR Broadcast from the Whoop app:
- Open the Whoop app.
- Go to “Menu” within the app.
- Select “Strap Settings”
- Toggle ON “Broadcast Heart Rate”

To solve this, just remove the WHOOP Strap from other device that it was previously connected to using the HR Broadcast feature.
