its MET values, that is, the ratio of an individual’s working metabolic rate relative to his or her resting metabolic rate. 10 MET values are well documented in the Compendium of PA 11 and include 4 basic PA intensities, such as sedentary behavior, ≤1.5 METs; light intensity, 1.6–2.9 METs; moderate

Fitbits estimated similar kcals compared to the criterion during sitting and standing, signaling good overall estimation of resting metabolic rate by the Fitbits. Conversely, all Fitbits were significantly different from the criterion during cycling, with overestimation (+33 to +70%) by the three Fitbits

state were calculated. Resting V ˙ O 2 was calculated, and the metabolic equivalent of task (MET) for each condition was calculated by dividing the V ˙ O 2 per condition by the average V ˙ O 2 during lying of each individual participant (ie, resting metabolic rate). Muscle activity was expressed

, moderate, and vigorous activity. Resting metabolic rate decreases with age, whereas the energy costs associated with even simple activities such as walking to the bathroom increase with age. Consequently, the traditional use of Freedson cut points, as was used in the Actigraph studies, may result in an

G cutoff points and MET thresholds had a strong agreement for PB intensity identification (Cohen’s κ = 0.81; 95% CI, 0.49 to 1.31; P  < .001). To help account for individual differences in physical fitness, 1 MET was equal to the resting metabolic rate of the participant. Participants were provided

This PA questionnaire uses the metabolic equivalent intensity values, defined as the ratio of the metabolic rate during an activity to a standard resting metabolic rate of 1.0 (4.184 kJ) per

These estimates of the average daily EE for each activity were then summed, resulting in an overall estimate of respondents
