AUTHOR(S): Amandeep Singh and Harmandeep Singh
The purpose of the study was to assess the relationship between Smartphone usage, leisure time physical activity and BMI. The data on these variables were gathered using self-reported questionnaires. Since all three variables were continuous in nature and non-parametric, Spearman’s rho was applied to examine the correlation. Results revealed a strong negative correlation between Leisure-time PA and Smartphone screen time (rs= -.864, p<.0.01). However, no correlation of BMI was observed with the variables leisure-time PA and smartphone screen time. The study concluded the excessive usage of smartphone results in less engagement in leisure time physical activity.
