  1. Cox proportional-hazard models were used to estimate hazard ratios (HR) with 95% confidence intervals (CI)
  2. Model 1: crude. Model 2: adjusted for age, sex, smoking (missing=5), and education (missing=4). Model 3: adjusted for model 2 variables plus hypertension, diabetes, and arthritis (missing=13) at baseline. All models for sedentary time additionally adjusted for wear time.
