Sedentary behavior, such as sitting for long periods of time, has been shown to increase health risks and may affect cognition. This study will determine whether using a wearable Fitbit device and a smartphone app can increase activity and improve cognitive function in older Latinos. Participants will be randomly assigned to either wear a device to track and encourage activity or to receive written physical activity guidelines with tips to encourage movement. At the start of the six-week study, researchers will record video interviews to determine cognitive function and will monitor levels of inactivity for one week. Cognition and activity levels will be measured again at the end of the study.
