It was also announced that a brand new device would be released alongside Pokemon Sleep: the Pokémon GO Plus +. This new accessory can be used as a regular Pokémon GO Plus during the day, and then at night time it will track sleep with its embedded accelerometer, sending information to a smartphone device via Bluetooth. It was also confirmed Nintendo of America and Niantic are helping bring the device out. More details about this device will be revealed at a later date.
