Activity trackers have mobile apps. The apps for the controller are companion apps that are used to update the firmware and synchronize data from the controller to your phone. It will then upload the data to an online account you created, allowing you to review it whenever you want.

Mobile app activity detectors usually do not require operation. They work well on their own while keeping you at a cost. The apps exist because the controller cannot store a lot of information and most cannot connect to the internet directly.
To do this, they rely on Bluetooth, and mobile apps. With Fitbit, you can skip the mobile app in favor of a desktop app if you’re using Windows 10.
