Are you ready for the new Pokemon Go app for Apple watch? After months of waiting, it’s finally here! But how can you get the app? Here’s what you need to know.
The app is fully available as a download at the App Store. For other Niantic updates, you typically have to wait days, even up to a week, before it’s available everywhere. But Niantic timed its announcement quite well this time. The app was available in the App store within minutes of the announcement.
So all you have to do to get the app is find it in the App store and then download it to your phone. Next, open the Apple Watch app on your iPhone, tap “My Watch,” scroll down to find the Apple Watch compatible apps on your iPhone, tap on the Pokemon Go Apple watch app, and add it to your watch. It works exactly like any other app that you’d want to add to your Apple Watch.
According to Niantic, the new app does a lot of things. It lets you log into a play session as a workout and count the gameplay toward Activity rings. You can get notifications about nearby Pokemon. You can count the distance toward hatching Pokemon eggs and getting candy for your Buddy. You can get notifications about nearby Pokestops. And you can get notifications about when eggs are going to hatch and when medals are rewarded.
