icon

Nokia Motion Monitor Beta, the latest release from Nokia Beta Labs, allows you to use your Lumia 1520 to track your physical activity, based on steps and motion detected by the sensors built into the phone. The new app, which provides functionality akin to wearable accessories such as Fitbit Ultra and Nike Fuelband, is enabled by new hardware, built into the Snapdragon 800 SoC, that off-loads sensor data processing from the main processor, thus allowing the necessary tracking algorithms to run constantly in the background whilst using very little power.
