Abstract

The present study investigated the acceptability of a novel ubiquitous socialgoal-sharing intervention aimed at promoting physical activity (PA) in schoolchildren. Methods: Thirty children (18 boys; 10.1±0.3 years; 1.39±0.06 m; 19.85±4.03 kg·m-2) were randomly assigned to ten groups and provided wit...

Methods: Thirty children (18 boys; 10.1&#xB1;0.3 years; 1.39&#xB1;0.06 m; 19.85&#xB1;4.03 kg&#xB7;m-2) were randomly assigned to ten groups and provided with Fitbit monitors.
