Heard of the game Pokemon Go? It's a new augmented reality (AR) game that lets you roam through your community in order to find Pokemon. It's similar to the Google AR game Ingress that lets you create territories by roaming around your community. The Pokemon Go smartwatch is doing the same, but it gives you the capability on your wrist with your favorite game (that is, if you're a diehard Pokemon Go fan or addicted to the game). Currently, EBay seller akumakenx, with a 100% positive feedback rating, is offering a Pokemon smartwatch for $198.98 as a pre-order deal ("will ship with tracking as soon as I receive it," he says).
Pokemon Go is a game that plays on the love players have for the Pokemon series in general, but the game has had more than its share of press in the news lately. For one, the game has been causing addicted gamers to hit trees, bump into people, cars, and other objects that can hurt. In some cases, skateboarders have been skating into things and acquiring injuries as a result. Just this week, a 19-year-old woman stumbled upon a dead body as a result of visiting an area in order to find a Pokemon, and Pokemon Go users are ending up as perfect robbery victims in secluded places -- with robbers using the game to take money and items. Hackers are spreading malware through the game as well, but the game is having its share of strong gatherings.
