A recent report has confirmed that after 1st July Niantic is ending support for the Apple Watch and the users of the smartwatch won’t be able to connect there device to the creature-catching game Pokémon Go. Following the announcement, Apple Watch users who are kind of used to of the support that the smartwatch was earlier offering have to change their habits.
Overall the device will not be as useful as it was earlier when it comes to Pokémon Go. Apple Watch users were earlier able to hatch Pokémon, track steps and earn Buddy Candy, but now these things are limited to just smartphones via Adventure Sync.
A report says that Niantic has decided to end the support following the concern that it wants to use the support feature only to a specific device rather than splitting user’s attention between devices. So following the update, smartwatches from now onwards won’t support creature-catching game Pokémon Go.
Niantic following its decision of ending support of the game on the smartwatches said: “Because Adventure Sync allows Trainers the option of tracking their steps… in one mobile device instead of two separate devices, we wanted to focus on building Adventure Sync,” Niantic said in a statement on its website, “so that Trainers will no longer have to split their gameplay between two devices.”
The company in one of the statements also mentioned that Pokemon Go Adventure Sync would continue to track the steps while walking, but that will happen only on the iPhones now onwards.
“Trainers can use Adventure Sync to track their distance by syncing their fitness apps in their phones,” continues the company, “which does not require devices such as Apple Watches.”
