Literature Review of the Application of Wearable Device GT3X in Monitoring Physical Activity

  • Published on July 25, 2019

After years of development, ActiGraph GT3X has been used in many fields, and the health effects of physical activity are also very obvious, and people are paying more and more attention to it. This paper systematically explains the basic principles of GT3X and the research status of GT3X in monitoring daily physical activities. By reviewing the two databases of CNKI and Clarivate Analytics Web of Science, the papers have been compared and summarized in a simple way. It is found that the research on monitoring physical activity through GT3X at home and abroad has been widely applied, but compared with foreign research fields and research results, there is still a lot of room for improvement in China. It is necessary to increase the research on the daily physical activity of wearable devices represented by GT3X in China, so as to make scientific and in-depth research on the physical activity of different periods of time and research and develop a guide for healthy physical activity that is most suitable for the Chinese population.
