The Right Analog Stick (Switch, PlayStation, Xbox) or the Mouse (PC) is used to aim the bow manually. This manual method is more reliable in terms of accuracy compared to the newly introduced gyroscope feature.
One of the techniques that bow users use when playing the Bow is the Charging Sidestep move which grants a level of charge after performing a dodge while aiming. This move allows you to stay out of harms way while not losing out on DPS.
Dodgebolt is a Switch Skill which uses less stamina and doesn't move you as far, which should make aiming easier. It also only maintains charge level, but perfectly timing an evade with will charge your Bow to Lv. 3.

The gyroscope is a feature that allows you to aim using motion controls. Want to aim up? Tilt the controller upwards! The gyroscope opens up new input methods for ranged users. By enabling the Gyroscope, using the Charging Sidestep becomes easier since your thumb doesn't have to perform two actions quickly.
List of Settings: Best Settings to Choose
Gyro aiming is only available on platforms that support motion controls. Options can be found under the Gyroscope menu for the Switch and the Motion Sensor menu for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
Although not officially supported on PC, you can use a controller with a gyroscope through Steam Input for motion controls. To enable it, right-click the game on Steam and select Manage, then Controller Layout. Under Quick Settings, set the Gyro Behavior to As Joystick. Additional settings can be accessed with the gear, such as mapping a button to enable gyro.
With manual aiming, you can get a better aim at monsters and easily hit their weak spots. It is easier to use than gyroscope and is more reliable in general.
The gyroscope's main appeal is its ability to free up your right hand for aiming. However, the camera becomes shaky when used even with minor movements, so this feature is not for everyone.
