There is a new device to play Pokemon Go without looking at your phone, the Go Tcha wristband! Until now the only device out there was the Go Plus from Nintendo which works pretty well but, with a new kid on the block the question is, which is better?
Both the Go Tcha and the Go Plus sync up quickly and easily to both Android and iPhones. No matter which phone you use they really will not even be able to tell the difference between the 2. They work pretty well for bluetooth devices as well and seem to stay connected¬† without a hitch. Neither one seems to outshine the other in that category.
One thing that I do like better about the Go Tcha is that it is rechargeable as opposed to the Go Plus which needs a battery. The whole point of Pokemon Go is to be out and about playing. if your battery dies on the Go Plus and you don’t have a spare you’re basically out of luck. With the Go Tcha though, if you have a usb Charger your good to go. For those environmentally conscious the Go Tcha also cuts down on waste.

Another thing that I really like about the new kid on the block is auto catch. Not so much for Pokemon, I like to see what I am doing. i like it for the spinning of the PokeStops though. This is more of a personal preference as I would not want to fill up my storage with stuff while on auto catch. I also feel like at that point you’re really really not playing the game, the device is. This is however a great feature for people that may have limited hand use and makes it a little easier for them to play.
Both the Go Plus and the Go Tcha are pretty small and easy to carry around. They each come with a wristband so you can literally wear them like watch. The displays are also easy to see so no big advantages there either.
One last thing that could be a contributing factor is actually availability. The Go Plus seems to be sold out more then not. They have been getting restocked fairly quickly but, they do still sell out. As of this post it is still a few days until Amazon has them back here. The Go Tcha is still in stock last time I checked Amazon Here.
All in all I think the Go Tcha edges out the Go Plus by just a little bit. The fact that you can recharge, auto catch and availability give it that slight edge.
