Pokémon GO Plus, the small wearable device that lets players interact with Pokémon GO without looking at their smartphone will launch in UK from 16th September.
Compatible with both iOS and Android, Pokémon GO Plus connects to smartphones via Bluetooth low energy and notifies players about nearby Pokémon and PokéStops. When a Pokémon is near, the device will vibrate and its LED will flash green. Players can press the button on the device once close to throw a Poké Ball. A successful catch will result in the device flashing and vibrating.
The Pokémon GO Plus device will vibrate and flash blue whenever in range of a PokéStop, allowing players to receive items with a simple tap of the Pokémon GO Plus button. Pokémon GO Plus can also be used while Pokémon GO is running in the background on smartphones.
As of today Pokémon GO Plus is available to order from the Nintendo Official UK Store. Please stay tuned for updates on availability at other locations.
