Indicator light notifications

Your Pokémon GO Plus will flash and vibrate to notify you of nearby Pokémon and PokéStops, even if you turn off your phone’s display. In the Pokémon GO Plus settings menu, you can disable notifications for nearby Pokémon, PokéStops, or both. If you disable both notifications, your accessory will not alert you to nearby Pokémon or PokéStops but it will still track your distance walked towards hatching Eggs and gaining Candy with your buddy Pokémon.
