Pokemon Go is coming to Apple Watch this year

A wild app appears on Apple Watch!

At today's Apple event, Niantic Labs announced that it's rather popular Pokemon Go will be arriving on Apple Watch. The gadget will alert you whenever Pokestops are nearby, and when a Pokemon appears in the wild.

Better still, the upcoming Apple Watch 2 will include standalone GPS, meaning you'll be less dependent on your phone to use it.

According to The Verge, the app will release before the end of the year. Hopefully, this means Pokemon Go battery woes will ease a little bit.
