Pokémon Go Plus, the wearable accessory for the hugely popular mobile game, will launch on September 16 in most territories, Nintendo and the Pokémon Company recently announced.
The official announcement also detailed fully how the device would work for players:
“[the device] 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.”
“As you pass by a PokéStop, Pokémon GO Plus will vibrate and light up and alert you to the location. You’ll even be able to collect new items just by clicking the Pokémon GO Plus. If there’s nearby Pokémon hiding in your area you’ll be alerted with lights and vibrations; catch the Pokémon with a button on Pokémon GO Plus and then continue on your way (later, you can check your Journal to see which Pokémon you’ve just caught).”
While the craze surrounding Pokémon Go has died down somewhat in recent weeks, the game is continually being updated with new features and fixes, and will even be coming to the new Apple Watch in the near future.
