Niantic has announced that they will end support for Apple Watch devices with Pokémon GO next month.

From Monday 1st July, you will no longer be able to connect your Apple Watch to the location-based game.

In explaining the reasoning behind their decision, the developer explains:

“Because Adventure Sync allows Trainers the option of tracking their steps, earning Buddy Candy, and hatching Eggs in one mobile device rather than two separate devices, we want to focus on building Adventure Sync so that Trainers will no longer have to split their gameplay between two devices.”

You can continue to use Adventure Sync to track the distance that you have walked, which is synchronized with fitness apps. Therefore, Niantic doesn’t believe that Apple Watch support is required any longer.
