, wearable devices that track PA behavior are increasingly popular tools for researchers, clinicians, and the general public to monitor free-living behavior. According to a recent report, global wearable technology sales will grow from more than $30 billion in 2016 to more than $150 billion by 2026 ( Hayward

Accurate estimates of free-living physical activity (PA) and sedentary behavior are critical for many different research applications. However, accuracy is particularly important for research with clinical populations since it is important to be able to monitor the dose of activity performed and to

The measurement of physical activity patterns has the potential to reveal underlying causes of changes in modifiable risk-factors associated with health and well-being. Accurate classification of physical activity (PA) in free-living situations requires the use of a validated measurement system to

This analysis has examined the associations between the timing of modifiable behaviors and BMI among adults in free-living settings. We build on previous studies, which have examined the timing of single behaviors in isolation, by recognizing and accounting for potential behavior timing co
