Pokemon Go Plus is a wearable device that connects to an iOS or Android device over Bluetooth. The standalone peripheral informs wearer of Pokemon and Pokespots in the vicinity.  The wearable flashes LED light and vibrates when you’re approaching an item in the specially marked location in the game’s map. This way you can reach the Pokespot and hatch some eggs without having to open the app on the phone every time.
