By Tom Wilson/Business Insider In an era of ubiquitous data, a smart watch or smartphone can be a valuable piece of data-tracking hardware.
But the way you use it and the data it collects is still being developed.
In a new series of articles, we take a closer look at how you might want to collect data with your apps, and where you should store it.

How can you use daylight data in your apps?
As part of our regular look at the different ways you might use your data, we’ll look at three major ways that people use daylight to track their activities, and how to make sure that they’re using the right data sources.
For the most part, these methods can be implemented using an app.
The simplest way to track daylight use is to store the data locally on your device.
This is the most common method, as it doesn’t require any extra software.
There are also other methods that use data that’s already stored locally.
For example, an app might store a timestamp on a phone’s GPS to track a journey, or a user might upload a photo to their camera roll to create a digital album of a particular activity.
All of these use a local data source.
To get the most out of these options, you’ll want to understand how daylight data is used, what the data can and can’t do, and what you should do to optimize your data.
