  • Publication number: 20210113106
    Abstract: Techniques are provided for tracking heartrate metrics using different operating modes associated with different contexts of a wearable device. For example, a heartrate sensor of the wearable device may be operated in a first operating mode when an activity is being tracked within an application session of a particular application. The heartrate sensor may be operated in a second operating mode after detecting conclusion of the activity within the activity session (e.g., during sedentary time).

  • Patent number: 10874313
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure can provide systems, methods, and computer-readable medium for tracking the heartrate of a user using different techniques associated with different contexts. For example, motion of a user wearing a wearable device can be tracked using at least first sensors of the one or more sensors. The physical state of the user can also be tracked using at least second sensors of the one or more sensors. In some cases it can be determines whether an application of the wearable device has been launched. Additionally, an activity category of the user can be determined based at least in part on the motion of the user, the physical state of the user, and/or whether the application has been launched. Heartrate data of the user can be collected, and the heartrate data can be categorized based at least in part on the determined category.
