Pokemon Go Plus Wearable Delayed to September

...

Pokemon Go players are getting along just fine with the free mobile app, which is good, since Nintendo's wearable accessory for the game has been delayed.

The Pokemon Go Plus bracelet was expected to launch in late July, following the global rollout of Niantic's popular game. But Nintendo today informed fans that the device will instead be released in September. A specific date was not revealed.

Staring at your smartphone, you may miss some monsters roaming the streets. The bracelet connects to a smartphone via Bluetooth and notifies users about events in the game using LED and vibration. Use it to find nearby characters and PokeStops, throw Poke Balls, and complete other in-game actions.

A number of fans took the news in stride. "Oh well, we can wait," one wrote in response to Nintendo's tweet. "Just make sure you make enough," another joked.

"Better than it being sold out and scalped internationally," someone else said. "I hope this means you guys will have lots in stock."

Other, however, shared memes and GIFs that express their disappointment.

The waiting is the hardest part—especially for Nintendo, which should keep its fingers crossed that people are still interested in the game in two months. A recent report from Survey Monkey suggests interest in the game is already starting to wane.
