, 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

( Papastergiou, 2009 ), to name a few. In this study, we focused on wearable digital technologies and, in particular, the use of accelerometers. Notably, the shift toward integrating wearable digital technologies in PE is part of a larger global trend regarding the quantification of health, educational outcomes

) comprehensively demonstrated that the wrist location can be used to assess RT activities. Atlas Wearables (Austin, TX) has developed a wrist-worn activity monitor (Wristband2) that is capable of assessing various types of RT exercises and repetitions completed. Steeves et al. ( In Press ) recently found that when

). Epidemiologic studies of PA during pregnancy have largely relied on self-report via questionnaires ( Evenson et al., 2012 ) although they are prone to measurement error ( Matthews et al., 2012 ). Device-based measures of PA require the estimation of wear-time, or the amount of time the tracking device was worn
