Abstract

EVIDENCE-BASED ANSWER

Frequent use of a fitness-logging smartphone with a wearable fitness tracker is associated with modestly more weight loss than less frequent use. Increased fitness tracker use in conjunction with online fitness coaching appears to correlate with weight loss (SOR: C, based on case series). As always, associations do not prove effectiveness.
