Pokemon GO can now track steps like a smartwatch or fitness band

Pokemon GO can now track steps like a smartwatch or fitness band”

Niantic has announced that the Adventure Sync feature will be rolled out globally for all users of Pokemon Go in the coming weeks. We're looking forward to finding new and exciting ways to implement it in our other games in the future, Niantic states in its blog.

Adventure Sync doesn't have a firm release date, but Niantic says the feature will be rolling out to players around the world soon.

If you are one of the fans of the Pokemon Go game, you must be knowing the steps one has to cover in order to catch various characters and trust me, it's not easy at all.

Niantic specified the feature would be integrated with Apple Health (on iOS) and Google Fit (on Android). This summary will allow players to see their progress with egg incubators and candy progress (earned when walking with a designated buddy Pokemon). Once Adventure Sync arrives, you'll be able to opt in at any time from within the game. If you're already using Apple Health or Google Fit depending on your device of choice, Adventure Sync will work alongside those as well to give you even more motivation to get out and GO. Earn rewards each week for each milestone you cross, and receive push notifications when your Buddy Pokémon has found a Candy or when an Egg is about to hatch! But players who boost the amount of walking they do to get in-game Candy should see benefits. Players will also be able to earn rewards for meeting weekly walking milestones. To help players keep track of their activity better, Niantic sold an accessory called Pokemon Go Plus that acts as a step counter of sorts and extends gameplay without the app being completely active.
