The Pokémon Go Plus peripheral is now available, but many Android users are facing issues and questioning the device's value.
Pokémon Go Plus connects to a smartphone via Bluetooth and notifies users about the appearance of nearby Pokémon in Pokémon Go and other in-game events using an LED and vibration. However, Polygon reported that Android users have reported a variety of Pokémon Go Plus issues thus far.
