Discover fun, new ways to get up and get moving as the Wii Fit series comes to the Wii U home console. The game features all your favorite exercises from Wii Fit Plus as well as new ones that incorporate the Wii U GamePad controller in select activities. The game also comes packaged with a small peripheral device called the Fit Meter, which is designed to track your daily activity.
Wii Fit U features more than 20 new activities and exercises that integrate the unique features of the GamePad and/or the Wii Balance Board.
Single-screen activities or exercises can be played using the GamePad without a TV screen. You can also use the GamePad to check personal information, such as your weight, without displaying it on the big screen.
You can carry the portable Fit Meter everywhere to take a comprehensive record of your daily activity. A variety of data, such as the number of steps taken or the elevation climbed, can be synced with the Wii U console to show how much activity takes place throughout the day.
Most of the Yoga and Strength exercises from Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus are back, and you will even be able to transfer your previously saved data.
Friends and family members can take turns using their own Mii characters within various activities.
Very Enjoyable program
This review is from: Wii Fit U with Fit Meter Wii U
Pros: Really helpful program. Fit meter helps keep you thinking about it even when you're away from home, and being able to quantify your daily life into calories burned is also super helpful. I got program access when I bought my wii fit meter, so the software ended up being free for me. Even at retail it's worth every penny. Doubly so if you're a gamer like me who has no motivation (or money) for the gym or more R/L oriented exercise. Making it a video game is a lot easier for me to quantify than lifting weights or repetitively running in place on a treadmill.
Cons: Much like older versions, this version has detection issues. Occasionally it will flat out fail to detect steps during advanced step, or I'll flick the controller one way only to have it not read or give an inverse reading [I get this a lot on the tetris-squash game thing. . where I swing right to left and the console reads left to right movement and costs me my ball. It's frustrating to have a really good run on something, only to have it bounce a read and destroy an otherwise great run. I just keep telling myself the points are not the reason I'm here. . . . SOMETIMES I buy that ;)
Other Thoughts: I used to use the original Wii Fit program on the Wii [the OLD Wii fit, not plus] so the addition of advanced sped up rhythm boxing, rhythm kung fu, and all the dance stuff was new to me. I did well with it before (until the Wii died and I didn't feel like re unlocking all my workouts) But now it's *SO* much better! Being able to make my own workouts and not have to jump through menus is wonderful! I use this in combination with a no sugar as organic as possible diet, and while I only started the week before Christmas, I've already lost about 12 lbs .. and that's WITH the traditional holiday meal mayhem!
