Pokemon GO Plus wearable will be launched next week

Since then, Poketrainers have been searching online for terms like, "what is Pokemon go plus?", "Pokemon go plus price", "what is Pokemon go plus pre-order", "Pokemon go plus amazon", and "Pokemon go plus launch date". The new app promises to let players track their gameplay as workouts. This official blog post explains in more detail, but the TL;DR version is that it will allow you to perform some in-game actions and receive notifications without actually getting out your phone.

"We've been testing it here at Niantic and we love the way it allows you to blend Pokemon Go even more seamlessly into family and fitness activities", the developer team wrote in an announcement. Currently, players have to have the game open on their phones while walking through their neighborhoods to find Pokemon and in-game locations called Pokestops that can be used to acquire digital goods.

You heard it right, the new Apple Watch 2 is not just splash proof, but swim-proof, which is a big deal for the Series 2 of this device.

The main screen in the new watch app shows a trainer's current level - as well as the XP needed to get to the next level.

Of course, that's assuming that a bulk of Pokemon GO players purchase the device, which may not be the case. Also, at a glance, they can see which Pokemon are nearby.

However players could get themselves in danger if they're not paying attention to their surroundings. It will also enable players to collect items by pressing a certain button. They'll also see all the items they've collected along the way.

Apple Watch thus becomes the first wearable to support Pokemon Go and there's no doubt that this could have impact on its sales. Pokemon Go's popularity has dipped since its launch, dropping from 45 million active users in late July to 30 million in mid-August according to data provided by Sensor Tower, SurveyMonkey, and Apptopia.
