Personalization of energy expenditure and cardiorespiratory fitness estimation using wearable sensors in supervised and unsupervised free-living conditions
A new methodology for activity-specific EE algorithms that models activity clusters using specific parameters that capture differences in EE within a cluster, and combines these models with Metabolic Equivalents derived from the compendium of physical activities is presented.
Tracking Changes in Maximal Oxygen Consumption with the Heart Rate Index in Female Collegiate Soccer Players
The HRindex Method does not appear to be suitable for predicting changes in VO2max following 8-weeks of endurance training in female collegiate soccer players.

The findings indicate that Garmin and Polar fitness tests may serve as an adequate substitute for testing using a metabolic cart and may be a more appropriate choice as the correlation was stronger and the Polar test tended to overestimate VO2max.
Validity and Reliability of the Polar A300's Fitness Test Feature to Predict VO2max
Preliminary results conclude that the Polar A300 Fitness watch is a valid tool for estimation of VO2max.
Comparison of the Polar V800 and the Garmin Forerunner 230 to Predict V[Combining Dot Above]O2max.
The results of this study indicate that the GF230 can provide an accurate estimate of V[Combining Dot Above]O2max in both sexes, and the PV800 can provide a more accurate estimate for women but not men.
Cardiorespiratory fitness estimation using wearable sensors: Laboratory and free-living analysis of context-specific submaximal heart rates.
It is concluded that pattern recognition techniques can be used to contextualize HR in free living and estimated CRF with accuracy comparable to what can be obtained with laboratory measurements of HR response to walking.
Monitoring changes in VO2max via the Polar FT40 in female collegiate soccer players
The Polar FT40 does not appear to be a valid method for predicting changes in individual VO2max following 8 weeks of endurance training in female collegiate soccer players.
Validity of Estimating the Maximal Oxygen Consumption by Consumer Wearables: A Systematic Review with Meta-analysis and Expert Statement of the INTERLIVE Network
The meta-analysis suggests that the estimations of VO2max by wearables that use exercise-based algorithms provide higher accuracy than those based on resting conditions, and best-practice recommendations for validation protocols are provided.


Accuracy of polar F6 in estimating the energy cost of aerobic dance bench stepping in college-age females.
Aim. This study: 1) examined the accuracy of the Polar F6 for estimating energy expenditure (EE) in a sample of college-age women during aerobic dance bench stepping (ADBS) using predicted maximal
Effects of respiratory interval on vagal modulation of heart rate.
The results indicate that the effects of PB and respiratory interval on the spectral components of HRV are not mediated by the changes in mean cardiac vagal tone and support the hypothesis that increased respiratory interval amplifies the respiratory-related vagal modulation of heart rate.
Low-dose exercise training does not influence cardiac autonomic control in healthy sedentary men aged 55 – 75 years
Results from this study provide no evidence of a clinically meaningful increase in the vagal modulation to the sinus node at rest after one year of low-volume and moderate-intensity fitness training in men aged 55 – 75 years.
Influence of short-term endurance exercise training on heart rate variability.
It is suggested that eight endurance exercise-training sessions performed over 2 wk enhance the relative vagal modulation of the heart during PB and TILT, but not during SB.
Estimation of VO2max from a one-mile track walk, gender, age, and body weight.
The results indicate that this one-mile walk test protocol provides a valid sub-maximum assessment for VO2max estimation and the accuracy of estimation as expressed by SEE was similar among the equations.
Accuracy of polar S410 heart rate monitor to estimate energy cost of exercise.
When the predicted values of VO2max and HRmax are used, the Polar S410 HRM provides a rough estimate of EE during running, rowing, and cycling.
Nonexercise regression models to estimate peak oxygen consumption.
It is suggested that N-EX models can be valid predictors of VO2peak for heterogenous samples and stable across the total CV group and various CV subsamples, but not across groups similar in VO2 peak.
Nonexercise models for estimating VO2max with waist girth, percent fat, or BMI.
Waist girth is an acceptable surrogate for body composition in the nonexercise models, but with reduced accuracy at the extremes of fitness.
Effects of endurance training on resting and post-exercise cardiac autonomic control.
The study demonstrates that with endurance-training changes in cardiac ANS modulation partly contribute to a decrease in HR at rest and during postex exercise recovery period, and that adaptation of the cardiac autonomic control occurs sooner in immediate postexercise periods than at rest.
