Pokémon GO for Apple Watch Now Available on App Store
Niantic has announced Pokémon GO is now available for Apple Watch as expected, enabling players to discover nearby Pokémon and collect items from PokéStops directly from their wrists. The companion app is bundled with the latest update to Pokémon GO for iPhone [Direct Link], version 1.21.2, rolling out on the App Store now.
Pokémon GO for Apple Watch enables players to log each play session as a Workout, with gameplay counting toward personal Activity rings, receive notifications about nearby Pokémon, view distances toward hatching Pokémon Eggs, receive notifications when Eggs hatch and medals are awarded, and more at a glance.
Pokémon GO cannot be fully played on Apple Watch, as once you encounter a Pokémon, you must catch it from your iPhone. Nevertheless, it should allow players to stare less at their smartphone screens and focus on the real world around them while playing the game, which should dually make catching Pokémon safer.

Just a heads up if there's anyone in here who actually enjoys playing the game every now and then and has the watch.
[doublepost=1482447059][/doublepost] I figure i'm 50 years old, run 15-20 miles/week walk another 25-30 miles/week. I am self employed working 40-50 hours a week doing embedded software engineering for flight avionics at home. I like to play this with the GF and her kid and while on walks.
No need to reevaluate my life, what about yours?
In before the Pokemon Go hate appears. This is a watch battery killer for sure.
The degree of advanced technology required for this mind wasting forum post is flabbergasting.
All this forum is now is flabby old dads complaining about everything. Christ.
