Brief Summary:
This phase II trial studies how well physical activity monitored by Fitbit Charge 2 works in improving quality of life in participants with ovarian, primary peritoneal, or fallopian tube cancer that has come back. A modern, state of the art activity tracking device (Fitbit Charge 2) may help to measure physical activity, heart rate, and sleep pattern, and may help doctors to learn whether physical activity level has any relationship to energy level, sleep duration and quality, toxicity from chemotherapy, immune cells in blood, and bacterial composition in gut.

Estimated Study Completion Date : June 12, 2021

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Supportive care (physical activity)
Participants wear Fitbit Charge 2 to monitor physical activity for 3 courses (9-12 weeks). Participants then increase their activity minutes to 30 minutes, 5 times a week or by 30% for 6 additional months.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of participants who wear and track g data using the Fitbit Charge 2 activity wrist band [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ]
    If observed compliance rate is 70% , use of the device will be deemed feasible.

  2. Persuasive effect of using the Fitbit Charge 2 on physical activity (PA) [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ]
    Will be assessed by comparing average daily PA measurements (described above) between pre- and post-counseling, using two-sided t-tests.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in Quality of Life Questionnaire scores [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ]
    The EORTC QLQ-30 will assess perception of the quality of LIfe in cancer patients.

  2. Daily steps [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ]
    daily steps recorded by the activity device will be averaged over the time periods between patient visits, with days of zero daily steps excluded from the average.

  3. Heart Rate [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ]
    The heart rate recorded by the activity device will be averaged over the time periods between patient visits,
