Two "computer names" in one computer

So I am using macOS Big Sur 11.3.1 and I am getting the activity split over two “computers” (BB-8 and BB-8.local) although I am only really using one laptop (with name BB-8).

One of the two never records anything. I am not sure why this split is happening and it is a bit anyoning when I go to the name that has no date. Is there a way to avoid this? Is this a bug of some sort?
Thank you very much for your help and I really love this program!

This is unfortunately a known bug, we have had plans to fix it for a while but have not had time unfortunately.

Here’s a link to a comment on how to fix it permanently on macOS without a fix in activitywatch

And here’s a link to the tracking issue to fix it without manual intervention in the future
