  • 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.

  • Patent number: 10264034
    Abstract: A digital magazine server user may identify a content item presented by the digital magazine server to save or present to other digital magazine server users by interacting with a client device presenting the content item. For example, providing a gesture to the client device identifies a content item for presentation to other digital magazine server users. The gesture may begin by the user interacting with a portion of a display device that displays a portion of the content item and continue as the user interacts with the display device along a path from the portion to an additional portion. When the gesture is completed, the user may be presented with options to present the content item to additional digital magazine server users, or the content item may be presented to other digital magazine server users.

  • Patent number: 9953010
    Abstract: Page layout of content items from a variety of sources is performed. A content processing system queues content items, such as user-generated blogs, tweets, social networking status updates and other postings, received from a variety of sources. Each content item comprises one or more assets from one or more asset types. The asset types include text, images, and video. A page builder retrieves items from the queue and determines the item's size constraints. A template is selected from a template database to use as a layout for the items on a page; each template has a number of slots into which content can be placed. A layout module lays out the items into the slots of the selected template based on the respective size and aspect ratio constraints of the items, in order to build a page to serve to a client device.

  • Patent number: 9712575
    Abstract: A digital magazine server user interacts with a client device presenting one or more content items from the digital magazine server to access various content items identified by the digital magazine server. For example, the user interacts with a portion of a display device of the client device and traverses to an additional portion of the display device to view additional content items on the display device. Based on a rate at which the user traverses from the portion to the additional portion, a content update rate is determined and used to select an indication of modification that is presented. The indication of modification provides the user with a visual indication that the content items presented by the display device are modified, and may include a subset of content items from the digital magazine server if the content update rate does not exceed a threshold.

  • Publication number: 20150356950
    Abstract: When a device is rotated from a portrait orientation to landscape orientation, or vice versa, the display device rotates the content items within distinct respective content regions of a page template (“slots”) that each appear to stay in their same position with respect to a frame of reference of the display device. While the content regions stay in their same positions, the content within each content region counter-rotates in place to offset the rotation of the display device. Thus, the content within the content regions maintains an orientation with respect to a constant (non-rotating) frame of reference, regardless of the orientation or rotation of the display device. In one embodiment, a slot's position, height, and width in a template in a second orientation are determined from the slot's position, height, and width in the template in a first orientation.

  • Publication number: 20150169744
    Abstract: A digital magazine server creates cover pages identifying relevant content items relevant to a user. Candidate feeds of content items are identified from various sources, such as user-defined sections of content items, social networking systems, external content providers, and recommended content. The digital magazine server retrieves content items from the candidate feeds and generates clusters including retrieved content items based at least in part on the content elements contained in the content items. The content items in various clusters are scored, and one or more content items are selected from each cluster. The selected content items are placed in a consolidated feed, which is used to create a cover page describing a digital magazine for presentation to a digital magazine server user.
