Following publication of the original article [1], the authors would like to correct the mix up in intervention groups when reporting results of one paper in the third paragraph under the heading Physical activity outcomes.

The sentence currently reads:

Maselli et al. found greater increases in MVPA in participants of a goal setting and feedback intervention who were provided a wearable activity tracker compared with individual counselling sessions and no intervention control (+ 1311.4–2372.9 MET mins/week)

The sentence should read:

Maselli et al. found greater increases in MVPA in participants who were provided with individual counselling sessions compared to a goal setting and feedback intervention who were provided a wearable activity tracker and a no intervention control group (+ 1311.4–2372.9 MET mins/week)
