Niantic Labs has joined forces with Apple to bring the most talked-about app Pokémon Go to the Apple Watch platform.

This partnership means that Pokémon Go players will no longer depend on their phones to open the app, as it will notify them via their watch when any Pokémon is nearby.

Also the players can collect Pokeballs and other items from Pokestops directly from their watch. Apple Watch users can also log their daily walks in Pokémon Go, which helps them to hatch eggs and receive other rewards.

While players will reap a wealth of benefits for connecting via the Apple Watch, the wrist piece still won’t be able to catch the Pokémon, users will still have ot do so via their phone.
