The Pokémon GO Plus accessory was initially revealed to be released by the end of July at the E3 Q&A session. You can pair it to your smartphone so you don’t have to have it on all the time. The device instead notifies you when a Pokémon is nearby. This saves on the battery usage for your phone as well. The Pokémon GO Plus has now been announced to be delayed by two months.

This delay applies to the UK, Australia and New Zealand as well, and likely extends to other countries as well. You can find out more about the device here.
Are you annoyed by this delay, and are you planning to get it regardless?
