, 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

purport to measure a range of behaviors, the most common function is step counting. Often referred to as “wearables” or “wearable activity trackers,” these devices can be used by consumers to track personal PA behavior and have been used in clinical studies with adults and children ( 2 ). Devices, such as
