.g., Fitbit, Jawbone, Apple Watch, Polar). These devices are user-friendly, comfortable to wear, and offer potential to both assess and promote PA. Unfortunately, the literature on the validity of these devices is equivocal due to inherent differences in validation methods, including differences in outcome measures

Therefore, we evaluated the association of PA intensity and type, using objective and self-reported measures of PA, with circulating sex hormones in premenopausal and postmenopausal women.

One of the more relevant studies is the validation of the Food Pyramid for Swiss Athletes (FPSA) by Mettler et al. ( 2009 ). The aim of the

GPAQ, 2 studies reported fair/poor correlation and large differences when compared with ActiGraph for measuring SB in adults. 20 , 21 However, this question has not been validated in older adults. High-quality measurement is essential in all elements of SB epidemiology, so that we can learn how SB may
