“Pokémon Go on the Apple Watch is more than just a companion that pings you when a PokéStop is nearby (though, it does, and that’s awesome),” Lory Gil writes for iMore. “It also keeps track of how many steps you’ve walked, your distance, and how many calories you’ve burned during your adventure. You can find out about Pokémon that are nearby, loot PokéStop, and add your Poké workouts to your daily activity rings in the Activities app on Apple Watch.”

Gil writes, “Because Pokémon Go is tied to your health data, your workout will also count toward your Activity rings in the Activity app, so you’re getting doubly rewarded for having fun!”

“You can add the Pokémon Go complication right to your watch face, which shows you how close you are to hatching your eggs. Depending on the complication, you’ll either see a little egg icon with an activity ring around it showing a graph of your percentage to your goal, or a small line of data showing how many kilometers you’ve walked and what the egg’s goal is,” Gil writes. “My personal favorite complication is on the Modular watch face. If you set it in the middle, it actually shows data for multiple eggs.”
