Nowa smartwatch that tracks your every move


Scientists have created a new algorithm that enables smartwatch­es to not only record your exercise session but also detect when you are brushing your teeth or cooking, an advance that will provide a richer and more accurate picture of your daily life. Current smartwatch­es can recognise a number of particular activities, including yoga and running, but these are programmed in advance. The new method, developed by researcher­s from the University of Sussex in the UK, enables the technology to discover activities as they happen, not just simply when exercising, but also when brushing or cutting vegetables. Traditiona­l models “cluster” together bursts of activity to estimate what a person has been doing, and for how long, the researcher­s said.
