Background :The physical health level of college students is not optimistic, and most of them have not reached the recommended amount of physical activity. However, a large number of studies have shown that participating in physical activity can effectively improve students' physical health. Purpose: The study investigates the influence mechanism of wearable device use on college students' physical activity participation, promotes college students' participation in physical activity, and provides a theoretical basis for promoting the development of smart physical education in schools. Method:A questionnaire survey was conducted on 507 Chinese college students, and descriptive statistics and correlation analysis were conducted on the collected data using SPSS 27.0. Result: There is a positive correlation between the use of wearable devices and the intensity and cognitive level of physical exercise among college students. There is a correlation between wearable devices and the types of physical activity that college students participate in.
