What is Pokemon GO Adventure Sync?
You may have seen pop-ups in Pokemon GO talking about a new feature called Adventure Sync, but what is it exactly? Well Adventure Sync is a way for Pokemon GO to use data gathered by your phone's health-tracking apps. It can log your activity over each day, and use it to award bonuses in-game. It works in conjunction with iOS HealthKit and Android Google Fit, to count your steps. It'll work in the background while you go about your day, opening up some interesting new possibilities.
You Can Use adventure Sync to hatch eggs Faster and Earn Extra Candy
One of the most useful new features that Adventure Sync allows is the tracking of your steps throughout the day, without needing the app to be open. This means that all of your steps will count towards hatching eggs and earning Buddy candies. Meaning that you'll likely see a real increase in productivity in these areas.
Pokemon GO Adventure Sync Weekly Milestones
Niantic is offering Pokemon GO players added incentives to get out into the world. There will be weekly milestones based on distance walked that will award bonuses. We don't know what these bonuses will be yet, but it's a great added extra for if you're playing the game and walking around anyway. The cool thing about this is that you'll basically get something to help you in Pokemon GO for just walking around, you don't have to load up the app.
