Smart mobile devices are being widely used to identify and track human behaviors in simple and complex daily activities. The evolution of wearable sensing technologies pertaining to wellness, living surveillance, and fitness tracking is based on the accurate analysis of people's behavior from the data acquired through different sensors embedded in smart devices, especially wrist-worn wearable technologies such as smartwatches. Many deep learning techniques have been developed to realize human

However, several challenges remain to be addressed in complex HAR research involving specific human behaviors in different contexts. To address the problems pertaining to complex HAR, a deep neural network composed of convolutional layers and residual networks was developed in this work. Additional attention was incorporated in the system by using a squeeze-and-excite mechanism. The model effectiveness was investigated considering three publicly available datasets, (WISDM-HARB, UT-Smoke, and UT-Complex). The proposed network achieved overall accuracies of 94.91%, 98.75%, and 97.73% over WISM-HARB, UT-Smoke, and UT-Complex, respectively. The results showed that deep residual networks are more durable and superior at activity recognition than the existing models.
