[0053] FIG. 4 illustrates an environment in which a mobile device and a wearable device operate, according to an embodiment.

[0054] Referring to FIG. 4, according to an embodiment, a mobile device 402 may operate in conjunction with a wearable device 401. The mobile device 402 and the wearable device 401 may provide a user 40 with a service for helping the execution of an exercise program including various exercise motions (e.g., a plank, a squat, and the like).

[0055] The wearable device 401 according to an embodiment may be worn on the user 40. The wearable device 401 may obtain information about the exercise program to be executed. The wearable device 401 may obtain sensor data by using various sensors included in the wearable device 401.

[0056] The wearable device 401 may obtain exercise data including a time when an exercise motion included in the exercise program continues or the number of times that the exercise motion thereof is executed, based on the sensor data obtained by a sensor. For example, in the case where the user 40 takes a plank motion, the wearable device 401 may calculate the exercise data including the time when the plank motion continues. For another example, in the case where the user 40 takes a squat motion, the wearable device 401 may calculate the exercise data including the number of times that the squat motion is executed.

[0057] According to an embodiment, the wearable device 401 may transmit the sensor data or the exercise data to the mobile device 402.

[0060] The mobile device 402 may output contents, which corresponds to one exercise motion, from among a plurality of exercise motions included in the exercise program. For example, the mobile device 402 may output contents corresponding to the plank motion. According to an embodiment, the mobile device 402 may receive the sensor data or the exercise data from the wearable device 401. In the case where the mobile device 402 receives the sensor data, the mobile device 402 may calculate the exercise data based on the sensor data. The mobile device 402 may also output the received or calculated exercise data. For example, while outputting the contents corresponding to the plank motion, the mobile device 402 may output a time when the plank motion continues.

[0061] According to an embodiment, the mobile device 402 may output contents corresponding to the next exercise motion under control of the wearable device 401. For example, if a control message is received from the wearable device 401 while the contents corresponding to the plank motion are output, the mobile device 402 may output the contents corresponding to the squat motion being the next exercise motion.

[0062] According to an embodiment, if the target amount of the exercise motion is achieved, the mobile device 402 may output the contents corresponding to the next exercise motion. If the wearable device 401 determines that the user 40 maintains the plank motion during 15 seconds being the targeted time, based on the exercise data, the mobile device 402 may output the contents corresponding to the squat motion.

For example, the exercise program may include sections respectively corresponding to various exercise motions such as a plank, a squat, a lunge, and the like. For example, the section may include information such as an exercise item, a target distance, a target time, a target frequency, or the like. The exercise program may be configured such that a plurality of sections included in the exercise program are sequentially performed. For example, the exercise program including a first section and a second section may be configured such that the second section is performed after the first section is completed.

[0071] According to an embodiment, the processor 550 may obtain information about the exercise program from the memory 520. For example, the memory 520 may store pieces of information about a plurality of exercise programs. The processor 550 may obtain information about one exercise program of the plurality of exercise programs stored in the memory 520, from the memory 520 in response to the user's selection.

[0072] According to an embodiment, the processor 550 may receive information about the exercise program from the mobile device 600 by using the communication circuit 510. For example, the mobile device 600 may obtain the information about one exercise program of the plurality of exercise programs in response to the user's selection. The mobile device 600 may transmit the obtained information about the exercise program to the wearable device 500. The processor 550 may receive the information about the exercise program from another external device (e.g., a server) by using the communication circuit 510.

[0073] According to an embodiment, while contents corresponding to the first section are output to the mobile device 600, the processor 550 may obtain data associated with the first section by using the sensor module 540. If the exercise program is selected, the mobile device 600 may output the contents corresponding to the first section. For example, the contents corresponding to the first section may be contents including an image and/or a sound for guiding the user to perform an exercise motion corresponding to the first section. The processor 550 may obtain sensor data by using the sensor module 540. The sensor data may be raw data obtained by the sensor module 540. The processor 550 may obtain exercise data associated with the first section based on the sensor data. For example, the exercise data associated with the first section may include data associated with calorie consumption, the location of the wearable device 500, a time when a motion corresponding to the first section continues, and/or the number of times that the motion corresponding to the first section continues. For example, in the case where the first section is a bench press, the processor 550 may obtain exercise data including data associated with the number of times that the bench press is performed. In detail, a method of obtaining the exercise data will be described with reference to FIG. 12.

[0074] According to an embodiment, the processor 550 may determine an exercise item associated with the motion executed by the user, based on data obtained by the sensor module 540. For example, in the case where there is no information about the exercise program, the processor 550 may obtain data by using the sensor module 540. The processor 550 may recognize the motion executed by the user, based on the obtained data. The processor 550 may determine the exercise item corresponding to the motion executed by the user. The processor 550 may transmit the information about the exercise item to the mobile device 600 by using the communication circuit 510. The mobile device 600 may play contents corresponding to the exercise item.

[0075] According to an embodiment, the processor 550 may transmit sensor data and/or exercise data associated with the first section to the mobile device 600 by using the communication circuit 510. The processor 550 may transmit the sensor data and/or the exercise data to the mobile device 600 for the purpose of synchronizing the sensor data and/or the exercise data with the mobile device 600. For example, the processor 550 may transmit the sensor data and/or the exercise data associated with the first section to the mobile device 600, at a specified period or if a specified condition is satisfied. The specified period or the specified condition may be determined based on the first section. For example, since an update frequency of data used depending on the exercise item is different, the processor 550 may transmit the sensor data and/or the exercise data to the mobile device 600, at a period changed depending on sections included in the exercise program or if a condition changed depending on the sections is satisfied.

[0076] According to an embodiment, the processor 550 may control the mobile device 600 such that the contents corresponding to the second section are output by the mobile device 600, based on the exercise data associated with the first section. According to an embodiment, if the exercise data associated with the first section satisfies a specified condition associated with the first section, the processor 550 may transmit a control message, which allows contents corresponding to the second section to be output by the mobile device 600, to the mobile device 600. For example, in the case where the target amount of the first section is 10 squats, if the number of motions included in the exercise data associated with the first section satisfies 10 times, the processor 550 may control the mobile device 600 such that the contents corresponding to the second section are output by the mobile device 600. The processor 550 may generate a control message for controlling the mobile device 600 and may transmit the generated control message to the mobile device 600.

[0077] According to an embodiment, after controlling the mobile device 600 such that the contents corresponding to the second section are output by the mobile device 600, the processor 550 may obtain the sensor data and/or the exercise data associated with the second section by using the sensor module 540. The processor 550 may obtain the sensor data and/or the exercise data associated with the second section in the same manner as the manner of the first section. The processor 550 may transmit the sensor data and/or the exercise data associated with the second section to the mobile device 600 by using the communication circuit 510. If the exercise data associated with the second section satisfies a specified condition associated with the second section, the processor 550 may control the mobile device 600 such that contents corresponding to a third section are output by the mobile device 600. Until all sections included in the exercise program are completed, the processor 550 may repeat the above-described motion.

[0078] According to an embodiment, the processor 550 may change the second section based on data obtained by the biometric sensor 545. For example, in the case where a heart rate obtained by the biometric sensor 545 is higher than a specified value, the processor 550 may change the second section to a section with less load applied to the user's heart.

The processor 650 may obtain the sensor data and/or the exercise data in the manner similar to the wearable device 500. The processor 650 may transmit at least part of the obtained sensor data and/or exercise data to the wearable device 500.

[0090] According to an embodiment, in the case where the contents corresponding to the first section are output, the processor 650 may output a guide, which is associated with the wear location of the wearable device 500, for obtaining data associated with the first section to the display 630. The processor 650 may output a guide for inducing the user to mount the wearable device 500 at a location suitable to obtain the sensor data associated with the first section, to the display 630. For example, in the case where the first section is a bench press, the processor 650 may output a guide for inducing the user to mount the wearable device 500 on the user's wrist, to the display 630. For example, in the case where the first section is a leg curl, the processor 650 may output a guide for inducing the user to mount the wearable device 500 on the user's ankle, to the display 630.

[0091] According to an embodiment, the processor 650 may output the contents corresponding to the second section to the display 630 based on data which is obtained from the wearable device 500 and which is associated with the first section. For example, the processor 650 may receive the sensor data and/or exercise data associated with the first section from the wearable device 500 by using the communication circuit 610. The processor 650 may obtain the exercise data associated with the first section based on the sensor data associated with the first section. If the data associated with the first section satisfies a specified condition associated with the first section, the processor 650 may output the contents corresponding to the second section to the display 630. For example, in the case where the target amount of the first section is 20 bench presses, if the number of motions included in the exercise data associated with the first section is 20 times, the processor 650 may output the contents corresponding to the second section to the display 630.

[0092] According to an embodiment, the processor 650 may output the contents corresponding to the second section to the display 630 in response to an instruction received from the wearable device 500 by the communication circuit 610. For example, if a control message for outputting the contents corresponding to the second section is received from the wearable device 500, the processor 650 may output the contents corresponding to the second section to the display 630 depending on the control message.

[0093] According to an embodiment, the processor 650 may output the contents corresponding to the second section to the display 630 based on the data, which is obtained from the wearable device 500 and which is associated with the first section, and the data which is obtained by the sensor module 640 and which is associated with the first section. For example, the processor 650 may combine the data received from the wearable device 500 with the data obtained by the sensor module 640. The processor 650 may determine whether the combined data satisfies the specified condition. If the combined data satisfies the specified condition, the processor 650 may output the contents corresponding to the second section to the display 630.

[0094] According to an embodiment, while the contents corresponding to the second section are output, the processor 650 may receive the sensor data and/or exercise data associated with the second section from the wearable device 500. While the contents corresponding to the second section are output, the processor 650 may obtain the sensor data associated with the second section by using at least part of the sensor module 640 and may obtain the exercise data associated with the second section based on the sensor data associated with the second section. According to an embodiment, in the case where the contents corresponding to the second section are output, the processor 650 may output a guide, which is associated with the wear location of the wearable device 500, for obtaining data associated with the second section to the display 630.

[0095] According to an embodiment, the mobile device 600 may interwork with a plurality of wearable devices. The plurality of wearable devices may be respectively mounted on different users or may be respectively mounted on different body parts of the same user. For example, the communication circuit 610 may be connected with the plurality of wearable devices. When outputting the contents corresponding to the first section, the processor 650 may obtain the data associated with the first section from the plurality of wearable devices by using the communication circuit 610. The processor 650 may output the contents corresponding to the second section to the display 630 based on the obtained data associated with the first section. For example, if all pieces of data, which are received from the plurality of wearable devices and which are associated with the first section satisfy the specified condition associated with the first section, the processor 650 may output the contents corresponding to the second section to the display 630. In detail, the contents output by the mobile device 600 may be provided to a plurality of users. The plurality of wearable devices, on which the plurality of users respectively wears, may interwork with the mobile device 600. The plurality of wearable devices may obtain data associated with the first section of each of the plurality of users, respectively. Each of the plurality of wearable devices may transmit data corresponding to the first section to the mobile device 600. The processor 650 may receive the data corresponding to the first section from the plurality of wearable devices by using the communication circuit 610. If all pieces of data, which are received from the plurality of wearable devices and which are associated with the first section satisfy the specified condition, the processor 650 may output the contents corresponding to the second section to the display 630. The processor 650 may receive the control message from the plurality of wearable devices by using the communication circuit 610. If the control message is received from all the plurality of wearable devices, the processor 650 may output the contents corresponding to the second section to the display 630.

[0096] FIG. 7 illustrates a flowchart for describing an exercise contents providing method, according to an embodiment.

[0097] Hereinafter, it is assumed that the wearable device 500 of FIG. 5 performs a process of FIG. 7. In addition, as described in FIG. 7, it is understood that the operation described as being executed by the wearable device 500 is controlled by the processor 550 of the wearable device 500.

[0098] Referring to FIG. 7, in operation 710, the wearable device may obtain information about an exercise program including a first section and a second section. For example, the wearable device may obtain the information about the exercise program including a dead lift section and a push-up section. The wearable device may obtain information about one exercise program among a plurality of exercise programs stored in the wearable device in advance. The wearable device may download the information about the exercise program from an external device. The wearable device may share the obtained information about the exercise program with a mobile device. The wearable device may obtain the information about the exercise program from the mobile device. The sequence of sections included in the exercise program may be set in advance. For example, the exercise program may be configured such that a push-up is performed after a dead lift is performed.

[0099] In operation 720, while the contents corresponding to the first section are output to the mobile device, the wearable device may obtain data associated with the first section. For example, if the information about the exercise program is obtained, the wearable device may obtain sensor data and/or exercise data associated with the dead lift section. While contents corresponding to the dead lift are output by the mobile device, the wearable device may obtain sensor data and/or exercise data associated with the dead lift. The wearable device may obtain the exercise data associated with the number of times that a user executes the dead lift, based on the sensor data. The wearable device may share the exercise data with the mobile device.

[0100] In operation 730, the wearable device may determine whether the data associated with the first section satisfies a specified condition associated with the first section. For example, the wearable device may compare the exercise data with the specified condition. In the case where the specified condition is 15 dead lifts, if it is recognized that the user executes 15 dead lifts, the wearable device may determine that the specified condition is satisfied. Until the specified condition is satisfied, the wearable device may obtain the exercise data associated with the number of times that the user executes the dead lift.

[0101] If the specified condition is satisfied, in operation 740, the wearable device may control the mobile device such that the contents corresponding to the second section are output by the mobile device. For example, if the target amount (the specified condition) of a dead lift section is achieved, the wearable device may transmit a control message to the mobile device such that the mobile device outputs contents corresponding to a push-up section. After transmitting the control message to the mobile device, the wearable device may obtain the exercise data associated with the push-up.

[0102] In the case where the exercise program includes two or more sections, the wearable device may repeat the above-described motion until the target amounts of all the sections included in the exercise program are achieved. If the target amounts of all the sections are achieved, the wearable device may end the motion.

[0103] FIG. 8 illustrates a flowchart for describing an exercise contents providing method, according to an embodiment.

[0104] Hereinafter, it is assumed that the mobile device 600 of FIG. 6 performs a process of FIG. 8. In addition, as described in FIG. 8, it is understood that the operation described as being executed by the mobile device 600 is controlled by the processor 650 of the mobile device 600.

[0105] Referring to FIG. 8, in operation 810, the mobile device may obtain information about an exercise program including a first section and a second section. For example, the mobile device may obtain the information about the exercise program including a dead lift section and a push-up section. The mobile device may obtain information about one exercise program among a plurality of exercise programs stored in mobile device in advance. The mobile device may download the information about the exercise program from an external device. The mobile device may share the obtained information about the exercise program with a wearable device. The mobile device may obtain the information about the exercise program from the wearable device. The sequence of sections included in the exercise program may be set in advance. For example, the exercise program may be configured such that a push-up section is performed after a dead lift section is performed.

[0106] In operation 820, the mobile device may output contents corresponding to the first section. For example, if the information about the exercise program is obtained, the mobile device may play a video for describing a dead lift motion. The mobile device may receive the contents corresponding to the first section from the wearable device or another external device (e.g., a server) or may load the contents corresponding to the first section from a memory of the mobile device.

[0107] In operation 830, the mobile device may receive the data associated with the first section from the wearable device. For example, while playing a video for describing the dead lift motion, the mobile device may receive sensor data and/or exercise data of the number of times that a user executes a dead lift, from the wearable device

[0108] In operation 840, the mobile device may determine whether the data associated with the first section satisfies a specified condition associated with the first section. For example, the mobile device may compare the exercise data with the specified condition. In the case where the specified condition is 15 dead lifts, if it is recognized that the user executes 15 dead lifts, the mobile device may determine that the specified condition is satisfied. Until the specified condition is satisfied, the mobile device may play the video for describing the dead lift motion.

[0109] If the specified condition is satisfied, in operation 850, the mobile device may output the contents corresponding to the second section. For example, if the target amount of the dead lift is achieved, the mobile device may stop the video for describing the dead lift motion and may play a video for describing a push-up motion.

[0110] In the case where the exercise program includes at least two or more sections, the mobile device may repeat the above-described motion until the target amounts of all the sections included in the exercise program are achieved. If the target amounts of all the sections are achieved, the mobile device may end the motion.

[0111] According to an embodiment, the mobile device may switch contents in response to a control message received from the wearable device. For example, if the control message is received from the wearable device while describing the dead lift motion, the mobile device may stop the video for describing the dead lift motion and may play the video for describing the push-up motion.

[0112] According to an embodiment, if the specified condition is satisfied, after interrupting the output of contents during a specified time, the mobile device may output the contents corresponding to the second section. According to an embodiment, if the playback of the contents corresponding to the first section is completed before the specified condition is satisfied, the mobile device may stop the playback of the contents until the specified condition is satisfied. Afterward, if the specified condition is satisfied, the mobile device may output the contents corresponding to the second section. According to an embodiment, if the playback of the contents corresponding to the first section is completed before the specified condition is satisfied, the mobile device may repeatedly play the contents corresponding to the first section until the specified condition is satisfied. Afterward, if the specified condition is satisfied, the mobile device may output the contents corresponding to the second section.

[0125] In operation 920, the wearable device 500 may determine whether the exercise data satisfies the specified condition. For example, if the exercise target amount of the first section is achieved, the wearable device 500 may determine whether the specified condition is satisfied. The wearable device 500 may determine whether the specified condition is satisfied, by comparing the exercise data with the specified condition. Until the specified condition is satisfied, the wearable device 500 may repeat operation 917 to operation 920.

[0126] If the specified condition is satisfied, in operation 921, the wearable device 500 may determine whether the next section is present. For example, the wearable device 500 may determine whether there is a section, the order of which is set to the next order of the section being currently executed. For example, in the case where the first section is being performed, the wearable device 500 may determine whether the second section is present. In the case where the next section is absent, the wearable device 500 may end the operation.

[0127] In the case where the next section is present, in operation 922, the wearable device 500 may generate a control message for playing contents corresponding to the next section.

[0167] FIG. 10 illustrates an exemplary user interface output to a mobile device, according to an embodiment.

[0168] Referring to FIG. 10, a mobile device according to an embodiment may perform an exercise management application. If the exercise management application is performed, the mobile device may display a first screen 1010.

[0169] In the first screen 1010, if a user applies a touch input to "item management", the mobile device may display a second screen 1020. For example, the second screen 1020 may include a list of a plurality of exercise programs such as "core strengthening exercise", "circuit challenge", and the like. The mobile device may select one exercise program of a plurality of exercise programs based on a user input.

[0170] In the second screen 1020, if a user applies a touch input to "circuit challenge", the mobile device may display a third screen 1030. For example, the third screen 1030 may include a list of a plurality of segments, which is included in the "circuit challenge", such as "squat jump", "plank" and "single leg dead lift", and the like. The mobile device may transmit information about the "circuit challenge" to the wearable device. In the third screen 1030, if the user applies the touch input to a start button, the mobile device may output contents corresponding to the "squat jump" being the first section. In this case, the wearable device may collect the exercise data associated with the "squat jump".

[0171] An embodiment is illustrated in FIG. 10 as a user interface capable of being output to the mobile device. However, embodiments of the present disclosure may not be limited thereto. According to another embodiment, a user interface similar to the user interface illustrated in FIG. 10 may be output to the wearable device.

[0172] FIG. 11 illustrates exemplary contents output by a mobile device, according to an embodiment.

[0173] Referring to FIG. 11, a mobile device 1102 according to an embodiment may display contents corresponding to a section included in an exercise program. For example, in the case where a "circuit challenge" of the exercise program is selected and a touch input is applied to the start button illustrated in FIG. 10, the mobile device 1102 may play a video for describing the motion of a "squat jump" being the first section. The contents may be contents stored in the mobile device 1102 in advance or may be contents downloaded from an external device.

[0174] A wearable device 1101 may be worn on a user 11. The wearable device 1101 may obtain exercise data associated with the section included in the exercise program. For example, in the case where a "circuit challenge" of the exercise program is selected and a touch input is applied to the start button illustrated in FIG. 10, the wearable device 1101 may collect data by using one or more sensors included in the wearable device 1101. The wearable device 1101 may recognize a "squat jump" motion based on data obtained by the one or more sensors. If the "squat jump" motion is recognized, the wearable device 1101 may change exercise data, for example, the number of time that the "squat jump" motion is executed and a time when a motion corresponding to the "squat jump" motion continues, or the like. The wearable device 1101 may transmit the exercise data to the mobile device 1102.

[0175] The mobile device 1102 may visually display the exercise data received from the wearable device 1101 in a display. For example, the mobile device 1102 may display the number of time that the "squat jump" motion is executed and a time when a motion corresponding to the "squat jump" motion continues, or the like, in the display.

[0176] According to an embodiment, the exercise data may be synchronized, at a specified period or if a specified condition is satisfied. The wearable device 1101 may set an update period or an update condition based on a section being performed. For example, in the case where the "squat jump" is being performed, the wearable device 1101 may transmit the exercise data to the mobile device 1102 whenever a one-time "squat jump" motion is recognized.

[0177] FIG. 12 illustrates a block diagram of a program module stored in a wearable device, according to an embodiment.

[0178] Referring to FIG. 12, the program module may include a motion recognizing module 1210, a determination module 1220, and a control message generating module 1230. The motion recognizing module 1210 may include a pre-processing module 1211, a feature extracting module 1212, a recognition algorithm 1213, and a classification module 1214. For example, the program module may be stored in the memory 520 of the wearable device 500 of FIG. 5 and may be performed by the processor 550 of the wearable device 500.

[0179] The pre-processing module 1211 may obtain raw data 12. For example, the raw data 12 may be generated by a sensor module included in the wearable device. After obtaining the raw data 12, the pre-processing module 1211 may remove a noise included in the raw data 12. For example, the pre-processing module 1211 may remove the noise by performing smoothing or by applying a weight.

[0180] The feature extracting module 1212 may extract a feature from data. For example, the feature extracting module 1212 may extract a part of data in which the noise is removed by the pre-processing module 1211.

[0181] The recognition algorithm 1213 may recognize the motion of a user wearing the wearable device based on data received from the feature extracting module 1212 and an exercise program 13. For example, the recognition algorithm 1213 may include an algorithm such as zero-cross, energy level, vertical movement, horizontal movement, gravity coordinates, and the like. The zero-cross algorithm may be an algorithm that calculates information about points at which the angular velocities in 3-axis directions obtained by a gyro sensor become zero. The energy level algorithm may be an algorithm that calculates the energy level based on a difference between the magnitude of the acceleration obtained by an acceleration sensor and the magnitude of the acceleration of gravity. The vertical movement algorithm may be an algorithm that calculates the speed in the vertical direction based on the acceleration obtained by an acceleration sensor and the air pressure obtained by a barometric pressure sensor. The horizontal movement algorithm may be an algorithm that calculates the speed in the horizontal direction based on the acceleration obtained by the acceleration sensor and the air pressure obtained by the barometric pressure sensor. The gravity-coordinates algorithm may be an algorithm that calculates data used for the vertical movement algorithm and the horizontal movement algorithm by changing the acceleration to a world coordinate by using a rotation vector.

[0182] The classification module 1214 may determine whether a motion corresponding to the exercise program 13 being currently performed is performed, based on at least part of data calculated by an algorithm such as zero-cross, energy level, vertical movement, horizontal movement, gravity coordinates, or the like. For example, in the case where the squat jump is being performed, the classification module 1214 may determine whether a user executes a jump motion, based on data calculated by the zero-cross algorithm and the gravity coordinates algorithm. If the data calculated by the zero-cross algorithm and the gravity coordinates algorithm satisfies a specified condition, the classification module 1214 may recognize that the user executes the jump motion. For example, the classification module 1214 may generate an exercise data 14 including data associated with the number of squat jumps. The classification module 1214 may recognize a motion based on various pieces of information such as time information, and the like in addition to data calculated by the recognition algorithm 1213 and may generate the exercise data 14.

[0183] As described above, if data obtained by a sensor module satisfies a specified condition associated with a motion corresponding to a section being currently performed, the motion recognizing module 1210 may recognize that the motion corresponding to the section being currently performed is performed.

[0184] The exercise data 14 may further include information such as estimated calorie consumption, duration time, or the like. The estimated calorie consumption may be calculated based on a metabolic equivalent task (MET). The duration time may be calculated by a timer included in the wearable device.

[0185] The determination module 1220 may determine whether the exercise data 14 reaches a target value. The determination module 1220 may determine whether the exercise data 14 reaches the target value, by comparing the exercise data 14 with information about the exercise program 13. For example, in the case where the target count of the squat jump defined in the exercise program 13 is 10 times and the number of squat jumps included in the exercise data 14 is 10 times, the determination module 1220 may determine whether the exercise data 14 reaches the target value.

[0186] The control message generating module 1230 may generate a control message 16 for controlling the mobile device such that the mobile device plays contents corresponding to the next section. For example, if it is determined by the determination module 1220 that the exercise data 14 reaches the target value, the control message generating module 1230 may generate the control message 16. The control message generating module 1230 may determine contents to be played by the mobile device, based on guide state information 15 and may generate the control message 16 for playing contents determined by the mobile device. The generated control message 16 may be transmitted to the mobile device (e.g., the mobile device 600 of FIG. 6). In detail, the control message 16 will be described with reference to FIG. 13.

[0187] FIG. 13 illustrates a diagram of a control message transmitted from a wearable device to a mobile device, according to an embodiment.

[0188] Referring to FIG. 13, if the target of a section being performed is achieved, the wearable device may transmit the control message to the mobile device such that contents corresponding to the next section are output by the mobile device. The control message may include a header and a body.

[0189] For example, the header of the control message may include an item such as "message" indicating that the control message is requested, "device" indicating a device type of a receiver, "sender" indicating a sender's name, "receiver" indicating the receiver's name, "version" indicating a version, "sequence_num" indicating sequence number increasing automatically, "type" indicating that the control message is a message, and the like.

[0190] For example, the body of the control message may include an item such as "version", "message", "control", "exercise_type", "exercise_target", "exercise_target_value", and "exercise_target_extra_value". "Version" may be data of an integer type and may include, for example, an integer value of 1000 indicating the version. "Message" may be data of a text type and may include, for example, a text of "Control" indicating a control. "Control" may be data of a text type and may include, for example, a text of "start", "end", "pause", "resume", "pause_resume", "guide", or the like that indicates a function to control. "Exercise_type" may be data of an integer type and may include, for example, an integer value of 1001, 1002, 2001, 3001, or the like that indicates an exercise type. "Exercise_target" may be data of an integer type and may include, for example, an integer value of 0, 1, 2, or the like that indicates an exercise target. "Exercise_target_value" may be data of an integer type and may include, for example, an integer value of 1000, 600, or the like that indicates a target value. "Exercise_target_extra_value" may be data of a real number (float) type and may include an integer value of 600, or the like that indicates an additional target value.
