Recently, Niantic announced that Pokémon GO’s support for the Apple Watch will end after 1st July 2019. After this date trainers will no longer be able to connect their apple Watch to Pokémon GO.
So… Why the change?
Niantic made the change because ‘Adventure Sync’ allows Trainers the option of tracking their steps, earning Buddy Candy, and hatching Eggs in one mobile device rather than 2 separate devices.
Niantic have stated, they want to focus on building Adventure Sync so that Trainers will no longer have to split their gameplay between 2 devices.
How can I continue to track my distance?
Good news! Trainers can use Adventure Sync to track their distance by syncing their fitness apps in their phones which does not require devices such as Apple Watches. For more information on how Adventure Sync works follow the link to Niantic’s support page here.
