Development of a Smartphone Application to Measure Physical Activity Using Sensor-Assisted Self-Report
TLDR
This paper describes the design and development of a smartphone application (“app”) called Mobile Teen that combines objective and self-report assessment strategies through (1) sensor-informed context-sensitive ecological momentary assessment (CS-EMA) and (2) end-of-day recall. Expand

Evaluating utility and compliance in a patient-based eHealth study using continuous-time heart rate and activity trackers
TLDR
Using continuous-time activity trackers with heart rate monitors can be effective in a telemonitoring application, as patients had a high level of adherence (90.0% median usage) and low attrition (0.09% decrease per day) over a 90-day period. Expand
