Due to the advances in smartphone technology, adolescents find difficult to refrain themselves from these devices. Smartphone usage is almost uncontrollable among the youth. This screen-based activity has become so addictive that youths fail to allocate their leisure time for physical activity. These high-tech tools have become a major contributor to sedentary lifestyle leading to low physical fitness levels.
