Health is essential to achieve great success in education and future life. Active participation in physical education activity is extremely helpful to achieve good health and physical fitness among school boys. But at present the students became more engaged in computers and smart phone than outdoor activities. Many of the school children are engaged more in e-games. Present study was designed to put spotlight on the health and physical fitness issues among the school going children of two different categories. A total of 51 school going boys of mean age 13.56 years were selected randomly. The subjects were divided into G1 (field game group) and G2 (e-game group). Height, Weight, BMI, SSF, TSF and PBF were considered as Health criterion in this study and flexibility RGS, LGS, and MSE were considered as physical fitness criterion in this study. All parameters were measured using standard tools and equation in this study. Two independent group design was used in this study. Independent t-test was used to calculate the significance of difference between two group means. Only 0.05 level of significance was used in this study and all statistical calculations were done using standard statistical software (Excel, 2010). Findings revealed that the G2 boys have significantly higher body weight, BMI, SSF and percent PBF than the G1 boys whereas the G1 boys have significantly higher flexibility and MSE than the G2 boys. From the findings it was concluded that overall health status and physical fitness of G2 boys was significantly lower than the G1 boys.
