In addition, Garmin wearable technology is now being supported by the online leaderboard. And if you don’t have a tracking device and would like another option other than the MOVES app, you can download the Fitbit app and use it without a device. When creating your account, simply click the option that says “I do not have a tracking device” and it will allow you to use the app as the tracker on your phone.
