Get Pokémon Go Alerts On Your Phone So You Can Walk Around Like A Human Being

If you’re anything like me, you’ll probably feel a tad self-conscious when you’re out and about whisking up Pokémon in Pokémon GOThat’s perfectly OK. Maybe you’d just like the fact you’re playing it to be a little less obvious, or something along those lines. Whatever the case may be, here’s a perfect solution, if you own a smart watch, that is (if you don’t, we don’t blame you).


I own a smartwatch. It’s…somewhere around here, gathering dust, because it’s useless when I’ve already got my phone in my pocket. That said, if anything in July 2016 is going to convince me to try using it again, it’s Pokémon Go.

There’s an app on the Play Store called PokeDetector, which pairs an Android Wear smartwatch with the game to give you a heads-up when you’re near a Pokémon.

Basically, it’s a casual alert system which means you can keep the game running in your pocket and be notified on your wrist, instead of walking around the streets with your face buried in your phone screen.


Note that the app uses unofficial Pokémon Go code, so there’s a chance your account could get banned if it’s ever picked up. To get around this, the developer recommends you sign into PokeDetector using a dummy/secondary account while playing the game itself on your primary one; you’ll get the same Pokémon spawning around you anyway, so it doesn’t really matter.

It’s also got a map mode if you want to see what’s outside your immediate zone.

Numerous companies have already launched their own Pokémon GO-related apps, riding on its popularity. And so while it’s hot, there’s the PokéDates app to help you find a date and RazerGO chat app.
