Latent load calibration for calorimetry using sensor fusion


In one aspect, the present disclosure relates to a method including obtaining, by a heart rate sensor of a fitness tracking device, a heart rate measurement of a user of the fitness tracking device; obtaining, by at least one motion sensor, motion data of the user; analyzing, by the fitness tracking device, the motion data of the user to estimate a step rate of the user; estimating, by the fitness tracking device, a load associated with a physical activity of the user by comparing the heart rate measurement with the step rate of the user; and estimating, by the fitness tracking device, an energy expenditure rate of the user using the load and at least one of the heart rate measurement and the step rate.. .
