Pokemon GO: Wearable on sale (finally) + New Apple Watch App!

Ready to play Pokemon Go with your smartwatch?


Pokemon GO Plus – the wearable device from Nintendo and the Pokemon Company is all set to make its debut next week! The wearable will go on sale on 16th September and will be available for sale in most of the world. The announcement comes right on the heels of another interesting announcement – “Pokemon Go on Apple Watch” by the end of this year.

The Pokemon website has no detail regarding the price of this little “Pokemon Map Pin” Wearable but guess it should be in the range of $50.

Pokémon GO Plus is a companion device 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. – Pokemon Go Live

Pokemon Go Plus works with both Android and iOS via Bluetooth 4.0. The wearable is something only a big-time Pokemon fan is going to be interested in (the app has been downloaded over 500 million times). One thing Pokemon Go Plus will be able to do that the Apple Watch can’t, is that it lets you catch Pokemon without getting your phone out.


I am one of those passionate "Geo-geeks" and "Geo-people" who is just too excited about everything Geo and Management. Location information and spatial technologies are just too big to take a back seat and watch them revolutionize the world. Always curious and looking for ways to innovate, I guess that it comes naturally by the gene pool I inherited from an engineer Mom and a researcher Dad.
