Abstract

Key PointsQuestionIs the addition of a wearable device to monitor and provide feedback on physical activity effective for improving weight loss within the context of a behavioral weight loss intervention? FindingsIn this randomized trial that included 470 young adults, weight loss was significantly less (by 2.4 kg) in response to a behavioral intervention when a wearable device that monitored and provided feedback on physical activity was included within the intervention. MeaningDevices that monitor and provide feedback on physical activity may not offer an advantage over standard behavioral weight loss approaches.
