The Pokémon GO team has today announced an upcoming new feature called ‘Adventure Sync’, that will sync your Apple Health data and use it to help you earn Candy, hatch Eggs, and more. The feature will record your walking distances even when the app isn’t launched and work in the background to monitor your distance.
The Adventure Sync feature will also deliver a weekly summary where users can see their Incubator and Candy progress as well as some other activity statistics. Users will also be able to check in via their Trainer Profile to see the number of miles recorded for the week.
“Exploring with Pokémon GO has never been easier with a new feature coming soon! Earn rewards each week for each milestone you cross, and receive push notifications when your Buddy Pokémon has found a Candy or when an Egg is about to hatch!
So let’s get motivated and GO! Stay safe, and happy exploring!”
Users will be able to opt into Adventure Sync at any time once the feature becomes available. Android users will be able to connect to Google Fit to sync their activity data.
