Human Activity Recognition (HAR) is becoming a significant issue in modern times and directly impact the field of mobile health. Therefore, it is essential the designing of systems which are capable of recognizing properly the activities conducted by the individuals. In this work, we developed a system using the Internet of Things (IoT) and machine learning technologies in order to monitor and assist individuals in their daily life. We compared the data collected using a mobile application and a wearable device with built-in sensors (accelerometer and gyroscope) with the data of a publicly available dataset. By this way, we were able to validate our results and also investigate the functionality and applicability of the wearable device that we choose for the Human Activity Recognition problem. The classification results for the different types of activities presented using our dataset (99%) outperforms the results from the publicly database (97%).
