If you are wondering how to sync Pokémon Go to Apple Watch, then you are in the right place. In this guide, we will discuss how you can sync Pokémon go to Apple Watch? Is it Possible? Let’s find out.
Pokémon Adventure Sync is a very useful feature that encourages players to complete certain challenges to win the buddy bandy and hatch eggs. When it comes to Apple Watch, Pokémon Go cannot be synced to Apple watch because the developers officially ended their support for Apple watches on July 1, 2019.
However, you can sync the Pokémon Go with Apple Health and continue to win the rewards. Let’s take a look at how you can do it.
Why syncing the apps is important?
Syncing the apps is very important as it allows the apps to share the data with each other. In this case, Pokémon Go gets the data, such as step count from the Google Fit app. If the apps are not synced, then the Pokémon Go won’t be able to get the data, and ultimately, you won’t get any reward. So, if you want to win the rewards, then syncing your apps is very important.
What is Adventure Sync in Pokémon Go?
As Pokémon Go encourages its players to go out and catch Pokémons, it comes with the Adventure Sync feature, where the apps get the data of players’ activity through the Apple Health app. If the players reach a certain milestone, they get the buddy candies and the opportunity to hatch eggs.
However, only players with level 5 or higher can participate in adventure sync, and if you don’t have level 5, then you will need to fulfill this requirement first and then participate in the Adventure Sync.
How to Sync Pokémon Go to Apple Watch?
Pokémon Go Developers ended the support for Apple watch on July 1, 2019, and now you can’t sync the Pokémon Go to Apple Watch. The developers explained the reason why they made this decision in following words “Because Adventure Sync allows Trainers the option of tracking their steps, earning Buddy Candy, and hatching Eggs in one mobile device rather than 2 separate devices, we want to focus on building Adventure Sync so that Trainers will no longer have to split their gameplay between 2 devices.”
How to Sync Pokémon Go to Apple Health?
Pokémon Go can’t be used with the Apple watch, but it doesn’t mean that you can’t use it with iPhone. You can easily sync the Pokémon Go with the Apple Health, and the Game will use the data from the Apple Health to give you rewards. Here’s how you can sync Pokémon Go to Apple Health.

When you enable the power saving mode, the system disables some sensors and processes in the background to save power. So, if the power saving (Low Power) mode is enabled on your iPhone, then turn it off.
