POV: Pokemon Go Plus

Pokémon GO Plus is a small device that you can wear that will allow you to play Pokemon Go “on the go”. So many of us aspiring Pokemon trainers are guilty of constantly staring down at our phones and not paying attention to our surroundings. This device will connect to your smartphone via Bluetooth.

PokeStop Alerts – The small device will blink and vibrate when you are within range of a PokeStop. All you have to do to collect from the PokeStop is to press the Pokémon GO Plus button. Swipe to add the items to your inventory.

Pokemon Nearby – The light on the small device will flash when a Pokemon is nearby your location. You can press the button the Pokémon GO Plus to throw a Poke Ball. There is a catch, you can only throw Poke Balls at Pokemon you have caught before. The small device will flash and vibrate to indicate that it stayed in the ball!

My only suggestion would be to somehow incorporate the ability to track our steps or location to count toward hatching our eggs. I hesitate to buy this small device because I still have to open the app open on my phone in order to hatch my eggs. I wear a fitness band 90% of the time so if it can track my steps… I feel like Pokemon Go Plus should take my daily steps, movement, location, etc. into account. Am I right?
