However, self-report tools (eg, single item, diaries/logs or questionnaires) show low correlation with objective data as

.5%. Walking was the most recognized activity pattern (99.7%). Finally, the device has proved highly reliable in recognizing walking speed (intraclass correlation coefficient [ICC] = .87; Gorelick, Bizzini, Maffiuletti, Munzinger, & Munzinger, 2009 ). The battery life of the IDEEA monitor provides up to 60 hr

Brian, Goodway, Stodden, and Tsuda ( 2014 ) found that the correlation between actual and perceived motor competence increased with age (4–5 years, r  = 0.074; 7–8 years, r  = 0.133; 10

Furthermore, the concurrent validity of the SR-PA L7 and C3 was scrutinized by studying Spearman correlations between the self-reported and accelerometer-measured leisure-time light physical activity, moderate-to-vigorous physical
