Will the steps automatically register in the app?

The steps will only sync if the app is accessed. If the app is not accessed, the steps will be counted by the operating system butwill not be recorded in the competition. It is sufficient to access the app once a day, week, or even on the last day of the competition to sync the steps, as we will consider the steps from the competition period. Daily synchronization is recommended to have an updated ranking.
