After multiple delays, the Pokémon GO Plus accessory will go on sale around the globe for $35 and it will change the way you play the game.
Those who use Pokémon GO Plus will be able to be able to collect items from PokéStops and even catch Pokémon without even having to pull their phone out of their pocket.

Simply approach a PokéStop and the wrist strap vibrates to indicate that you are in the vicinity and it’ll light up as well. Users can then press the button on the Pokémon GO Plus accessory to gather items. The same steps apply for catching Pokémon, as long as it’s not a new Pokémon.
As you pass by a PokéStop, Pokémon GO Plus will vibrate and light up and alert you to the location. You’ll even be able to collect new items just by clicking the Pokémon GO Plus. If there’s nearby Pokémon hiding in your area you’ll be alerted with lights and vibrations; catch the Pokémon with a button on Pokémon GO Plus and then continue on your way (later, you can check your Journal to see which Pokémon you’ve just caught).
