Is it possible to use mobile devices for electronic ecological momentary assessment in order to gather information about the contexts that influence youth physical activity and sedentary behavior?. In this work we’ve shown that children are capable of using mobile devices to provide information about physical activity, suggesting the validity of the tool that may help accelerate future reearch.
