Tired of constantly looking at your screen while trying to search and catch for Pokemon on Pokemon Go?
Nintendo has just come up with a solution.
The japanese video games giant has just released the Pokemon Go wearable gadget that will help you play the game without constantly looking at your phone’s screen.
An official announcement on the developer’s website reads:
The Pokémon GO Plus accessory is now available in limited quantities around the world.
The Pokémon GO Plus accessory is a companion device for the Pokémon GO application that connects to your phone over Bluetooth® Smart (the Bluetooth low energy connection designed for health and fitness applications), allowing you to keep your phone in your pocket and go about your day-to-day activities while still being able to collect valuable resources and capture even the most elusive Pokémon. Now you’ll be able to play and enjoy your walk, run, hike, park trips or visits to the library without having to look at your screen all the time.
The device sends alerts through bluetooth pairing
The Pokemon Go Plus wearable gadget uses bluetooth to pair with your device and then sends you alerts by lighting up and vibrating whenever a Pokestop or Pokemon is nearby. It will also track the distance you have walked to hatch a Pokemon egg.
Plus you will also be able to push buttons on the wrist gadget to instantly collect items through a Pokestop or catch a Pokemon.
The device is available for only $35 and can be purchased online. Though it is only available in limited quantities only.
But be warned, Pokemon Go Plus will only allow you to catch Pokemon that you have already caught. To search for new Pokemon, you will still have to use your phone.
