Activity recognition allows ubiquitous wearable device like smart watch to simplify the study and experiment. It is very convenient and extensibil-ity that we do study with the accelerometer sensor of a smart watch. In this paper, we use Samsung GEAR smart watch to collect data, then extract features, classify with H-SVM (Hierarchical Support Vector Machine) classifier and identify hu-man activities classification. Experiment results show great effect at low sam-pling rate, such as 10 Hz and 5 Hz, which will give us the energy saving. In most cases, the accuracies of activity recognition experiment are above 99%.
