Make no mistake – Pokemon GO would have stood the test of time had Niantic been more timely with its updates.
But sadly, the damage seems to have been done. The second generation launched last week – almost six months after launch – and has so far completely failed to arrest the decline.
So what chance does the latest update have when all it offers is Apple Watch support? Very little.
Not only does no one actually own an Apple Watch, but the implementation of it leaves a lot to be desired.
How does it work?
Pokemon GO on Apple Watch functions like any other fitness app. You tell the app you’re about to go for a walk and it keeps track of your steps, distance covered, time taken, and calories lost.
