[First Look] Pokemon Go Plus -- Unboxing + Setup
The Pokémon Go Plus is peripheral add-on that interacts with Pokémon Go. The Plus looks like a Pokéball mixed with a Google Maps pin, which connects to the game. It uses Bluetooth to hook up with your smart phone, and you can clip or wear it like a wristband to keep connected to your game always.
It buzzes if you’re close to a Pokestop, enabling you to collect items with a single button click. You’ll also receive a notification when it detects a Pokemon and you’ll be able to capture it, however, you won’t see whether it worked until you check your phone.

It appears to be quite simple to set up and use, and it will definitely help to save battery life as you won’t have to use your phone screen most of the time. Get that extra distance on your eggs and the new buddy walk system!
The Pokemon Go Plus costs 35$.
