Figure. Comparison of minutes per week between moderate-to-vigorous physical activity measured by accelerometer and measured by self-report among 24 women with a minimum of 4 days (of at least 10 hours per day) of valid data. Accelerometer measurements are bouted and nonbouted. Bouted was defined as consisting of activities of moderate or vigorous intensity occurring within a sustained period of time and lasting at least 10 minutes for which at least 80% of the time corresponded to moderate-to-vigorous physical activity. Nonbouted is physical activity of shorter duration or lower intensity. A gap where a bar for physical activity might appear indicates zero minutes. Data for participants appear in no particular order. Abbreviation: MET, metabolic equivalent tasks.
