Apple Announces Pokemon Go for Apple Watch
Apple has just announced that together with Niantic it managed to bring Pokemon Go on the Apple Watch, make it possible to catch ‘em all straight from your wrist.
The new implementation makes it possible to play the game while “focusing on what’s important to you,” Niantic explained. A complication on the Apple Watch displays how much trainers have to walk for new eggs, with the device now capable of notifying when nearby Pokemon are discovered.
Furthermore, the Watch shows PokeStops and even lets you collect items by simply swiping on its display. “With Pokemon Go on Apple Watch, you’ll never skip a Pokestop,” Niantic says.
You can keep walking to hatch eggs, Niantic showed, and the Apple Watch activity summary now shows items that you collect in Pokemon Go too.
The new Pokemon Go will help players “get outside and have fun with friends,” Niantic said. Pokemon Go will go live before the end of the year, the company said, but no other specifics were provided.
