a Evaluation of meeting guidelines (adolescent girls): Presenting percentiles for (clockwise) the most active 8 h of the day (M1/3DAY), 120 min (M120), 60 min (M60), 30 min (M30), 15 min (M15) and 5 min (M5) facilitates evaluation of meeting guidelines relative to any given threshold. Examples are shown for two MVPA thresholds. b Comparison of a single participant (14-year-old overweight girl) relative to the sample percentiles. The longer duration MX metrics are relatively high or comparable to the sample (M1/3DAY = 72nd percentile, M120 and M60 > 47th percentile), while the shorter duration MX metrics reflect low-intensity activity relative to the sample (M30, M15 and M5 < 38th percentile). Together this results in similar average acceleration to the group median, but much lower intensity gradient. Av accel, average acceleration; IG, intensity gradient; MVPA, moderate-to-vigorous physical activity
