Yes, Sweatcoin will work with Pokémon GO!
Because the app does not be the active app running in the foreground to track steps, you can leave Sweatcoin minimized and play Pokémon GO and track distances in both apps. I mention this in my app review.
For example, in Pokémon GO, you need to walk 10 kilometers, or just over 6 miles, to hatch a 10K egg. That’s the equivalent of about 6 Sweatcoins earned through your steps per 10K egg.
As a person who enjoys Pokémon GO I have tested this extensively, and the accuracy of Sweatcoin’s step tracking is miles beyond Pokémon GO. It’s way more advanced and accurate, in my personal experience. I’ve had issues in GO where it would not track all my steps, but Sweatcoin would.
Additionally, Sweatcoin uses MUCh less data than Pokémon GO. I’ve noticed I don’t even need to use “Battery Saver” mode to save battery life and data usage.
There might be other apps that Sweatcoin could reward you in-game currency for. I think in the future we’ll see this happening a lot. But because the app is new, it may be awhile until we can be rewarded with Pokémon GO items.
So get out there and catch your Pokémon and still earn free gifts for your walking!
