    As a result of urbanisation and the development of modern information technology, youngster obesity in Slovenia has severely increased in the last twenty years. Young people tend to exercise much less in their free time than twenty years ago, which results in their poor health. The aim of the diploma paper is to develop an application to help overweight children. The main purpose of the application is to motivate youngsters who are being treated for obesity and to provide them, with the help of a doctor, with all the necessary help and control over their sports activities. In the diploma paper we developed two applications, namely a smart watch application that monitors and recognises a child's sports activities based on the information gathered by the sensors of the device, and a tablet application that enables a child to have an overview of all the activities gathered by the smart watch. It is expected that the application will be of help to overweight children, not only to lose their weight but also to change their lifestyles.
