  author={Bozidara Cvetkovic and Martin Gjoreski and Jure Sorn and Pavel Maslov and Mitja Lu{\vs}trek},
The paper presents a smartphone application for monitoring physical activity and mental stress. The application utilizes sensor data from a wristband and/or a smartphone, which can be worn in various pockets or in a bag in any orientation. The presence and location of the devices are used as contexts for the selection of appropriate machine-learning models for activity recognition and the estimation of human energy expenditure. The stress-monitoring method uses two machine-learning models, the…

Stress Classification Using Photoplethysmogram-Based Spatial and Frequency Domain Images
The use of the frequency domain images that are generated from the spatial domain images of the IBI extracted from the PPG signal is used to classify the stress state of the individual by building person-specific models and calibrated generic models.
Overweight Effects on Metabolic Rate, Chronic Diseases, Time Perception, Aging, and Lifespan: a Systematic Review
The findings support overweight with overeating increases metabolic rate that in turn delays time-flow perception, increases disease, accelerates aging, limits lifespan.
Intervention of Wearables and Smartphones in Real Time Monitoring of Sleep and Behavioral Health: An Assessment Using Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Technique
This study aims to assess sleep quality and behavioral health from wearables and smartphones using an Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Inference System (ANFIS), which achieves an accuracy of 91.69% for sleep quality assessment and 85.79% for behavioral health assessment.

Continuous stress detection using a wrist device: in laboratory and real life
A method for continuous detection of stressful events using data provided from a commercial wrist device that consists of three machine-learning components: a laboratory stress detector that detects short-term stress every 2 minutes; an activity recognizer that continuously recognizes user's activity and thus provides context information; and a context-based stress detectors that exploits the output of the laboratorystress detector and the user's context in order to provide the final decision on 20 minutes interval.
cStress: towards a gold standard for continuous stress assessment in the mobile environment
A stress model (called cStress) that has been carefully developed with attention to every step of computational modeling including data collection, screening, cleaning, filtering, feature computation, normalization, and model training is presented.
Refined two-regression model for the ActiGraph accelerometer.
The refined two-regression model should eliminate the misclassification of transitional minutes when changing activities that start and stop in the middle of a minute on the ActiGraph clock, thus improving the estimate of free-living energy expenditure.
