  • Publication number: 20180344181
    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.

  • Publication number: 20180307185
    Abstract: Sleep alerts associated with an alarm can be scheduled using a first electronic device. Once scheduled, data can be collected from a second electronic device. This data can be used to determine an appropriate device, other than the first electronic device, at which the sleep alert can be presented. Once determined, the information can be sent to the appropriate device for presenting the sleep alert.

  • Patent number: 10091143
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer-readable medium are provided for providing dynamic rule-based messages. For example, a user device may identify physical activity information. Based at least in part on the activity information, the device may determine whether a physical activity goal has been reached. The device may determine whether to present a dynamic progress update message based at least in part on a time since a first activity message was presented and whether the physical activity goal has been reached. In some instances, when it is determined to present the dynamic progress update message, the device may access a data structure configured to maintain progress update information associated with respective time intervals. The device may then retrieve the dynamic progress update message that corresponds to a particular time interval from the data structure. The device may also present the message for the particular time interval.

  • Patent number: 10054909
    Abstract: An adjustable alarm indicator of an alarm application is described. The adjustable alarm indicator may be presented in connection with an alarm setting sequence. The adjustable alarm indicator may include a variable element having a variable annular shape, a first element associated with a first end of the variable element, and a second element associated with a second end of the variable element. The first element may be independently moveable to adjust the size of the variable element. The second element also may be independently moveable to adjust the size of the variable element.
