The wait is over! Pokémon Go Apple Watch is out now offering the entire experience geared towards fitness. The smartwatch version of the game was announced back in September and now the app has landed. With Apple Watch and Pokémon Go integration, one can log each play session as a workout and will also receive notifications about nearby Pokémon. This gives players a way of counting that movement towards achieving their daily fitness goals.


With Pokémon Go Apple Watch, you can count steps towards hatching Pokémon eggs and receive candies. It displays you the distance traveled towards hatching the egg. You will also receive notifications about Pokémon nearby so as to collect items from them.

One feature that Pokémon Go for Apple Watch cannot do is to actually catch Pokémon. The watch activates only when there’s a Pokémon nearby and players need to put out their devices to capture it.
