Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

The Wii Fit exercise craze comes to the DS, with Nintendo's latest attempt to make video gaming the healthiest hobby around. This unique Touch! Generations game comes bundled with two pedometers, which are able to analyse how much exercise you get from walking and jogging around each day.

Set a target number of steps and see if you can reach it each day
The pedometer will even measure the rhythm and style of your walking
See how much exercise you get compared to friends and family
Design your own Mii or import your existing one from the Wii

Just pop one of the pedometers into your pocket or handbag and the device will collect and store the information ready for it to be uploaded to your DS. From here you can set goals for the amount of exercise you get and compare your activity to family members, friends or even your pets.

You can also post your data online and see how much exercise you're getting compared to other people from around the world. With plenty of hints and tips on whether you're getting enough or the right kind of exercise, this is the perfect way to play video games and still avoid becoming a coach potato!

Key Features
  • DS Fit: Track up to four members of your family as they walk, jog and run with detailed graphs, statistics and helpful health advice.
  • Generating fun: Unlock trivia, pictures and fun mini-games as you exercise - do you know how much electrical energy your walking could generate each day?
  • Space walk: Upload your data online and compete in weekly leaderboards or add your steps to a worldwide count that plots your progress across the whole solar system!
  • Walk with Mii: The first DS game ever to use Miis, you can either create them on the DS or import your existing ones from the Wii.
  • Pocket meter: Comes bundled with two wireless pedometers, to collect your keep fit data and transmit it back to the DS with just a press of a button.

Product Description

Walk With Me! continues Nintendo's tradition of offering products aimed at enhancing and improving fitness and lifestyle as well as being accessible to all the family. Walk With Me! does this with an added competitive twist. At its core Walk With Me! tracks your daily routine with the Activity Meter. Once you have been for a walk/run you wirelessly beam the data from the Activity Meter to your DS/DSi and Walk With Me! converts it into numbers of 'steps.' The software tracks exactly when you went for a walk that day and offers you tips and advice.

You are represented in Walk With Me! by your Mii character, which can be wirelessly downloaded from your Wii. This is the first time you have been able to use your Mii character in a DS game. If you do not have a Mii character then you can create one within the software.

Once you have downloaded your activity for the day you can set yourself targets according the amount of activity that you do. You can also give yourself as stamp at the end of day depicting whether you are happy or not with the amount of activity you have done for that day.

The major defining feature of Walk With Me! is that you can track up to four peoples activity on one cartridge. This enables you to compare your activity with family members, friends or even work colleagues to see who is fittest and who is the laziest.

Walk With Me! is also Wi-Fi compatible allowing you to upload your data to the global rankings to see how you fair on a world stage. There are also a variety of minigames available which use the data in fun and exciting ways.

  • Monitor your daily walking routine
  • Set your self goals
  • Give yourself a rating for the day
  • Compare with your friends and family, even your dog!
  • Go online and compare yourself to walkers all over the world

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says it will do 9 Oct 2009
By H. B. Hosegoood TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I already had an Omron pedometer (Omron Walking Style II Pedometer), which is one of the best you can get but it only stores your walking history for a week and I liked the idea of having a record over a much longer period. So when I got Walk with Me I was able to compare the Nintendo pedometer with the Omron one. I didn't expect the Nintendo pedometer to be all that accurate, but actually both pedometers gave similar readings on a day when I went on a really big walk. Both the Omron and the Nintendo versions ignore the first ten seconds of walking to avoid counting coughing etc, but the Omron adds those first steps back into the count if you carry on walking, so it consistently awarded me more steps than the Walk with Me one, especially on days when I was at my desk a lot and there were many trips to make coffee etc... I quite like the fact that the Nintendo is a hard taskmaster - it makes you walk more.

So, here is my list of pros and cons, based mainly on the comparison with a more traditional pedometer:

Pros
Really small, light and neat - about half the size of my Omron Walking Style II - and no one will notice you wearing it under a sweater, eg.
Said to be waterproof (though I didn't try this).
Keeps records for months on end so you can really chart your progress.
Gives you a chart showing when you walked actively so you can see your rhythm.
Compares you with an animal, which is fun and inspiring.
Is pretty accurate and, if anything, underestimates your steps, making you walk more.

Cons
Doesn't count the calories (unlike the Omron Walking Style II) so you can't tell how many snacks you can freely eat!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Product! 19 Jun 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My mum convinced me to buy this (with her money of course) and I'm so very glad she did.
We've both benefited from wearing the pedometer and trying to get to are targets every day makes us very competitive!
It also makes me realise how much walking I do when I'm just at home, when before I thought I'd been doing 'nothing', I'd been doing a lot more than I thought I was!
I would definitely recommend this product for anyone who wants to increase their activity but in small ways in stead of large ones.
The mini games are also very addictive and I'm trying so hard to beat my mum at them!
We've both really enjoyed this product and have used it every day since we got it.
Fantastic buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Really encourages you to walk 13 Jun 2009
By CiaraB
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I think that this is great idea. I am possibly the laziest person ever, but this game has made me go for walks every day for the last 5 days. Especially now that my husband has taken the second pedometer - I can't let him beat me! There may not be a lot more to the game, but that isn't the point of it. The point is to record your steps and encourage you to walk, and that is certainly what it has done for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun on your Feet 9 July 2009
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
It's very easy to use - just 'register' yourself with your DS and hey presto. The default pedometer does not have a clip for your belt but a small screwdriver can be used to affix the one that is supplied in the box. The Walk the World and Illuminate mini games are fun for children and its very easy to compare each person's walking with each other. Easy to read graphs show how each user's walking changes over time. 2 pedometers are supplied (for 2 people to use) but for extra people more pedometers need to be purchased separately. Supposedly you can even stick a pedometer on your dog!

Anyway to conclude; this isn't a game per say but it does give you a chance to monitor steps in an easy to use way. It can encourage you to walk more - but it doesnt make you walk. Like with Wii fit you need to put effort in for it to work.

I am pleased with my purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars Walkies! 14 July 2009
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Well folks - this little pedometer certainly gets you moving! It's not exactly a game and I'm not sure whether being likened to a sheep or deer is very helpful - but the game is designed for 3 years and up so I guess it's designed for little ones in mind.
My husband registered as a cute dog with his pedometer - sigh! But I think it calculates a 'dog' stride therefore if we go out for a walk together, he will have done about 300 steps more than me by the end of it.
The actual pedometer is very small and neat - and doesn't get affected by car movement at all which is good.
Summing up - I think it is a good little 'gizmo' and has really helped me to take more exercise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Its a pedometer, but a great one, or even two. 11 Jun 2009
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been using a pedometer for about six months now, and use it to motivate me and keep an eye on my exercise. This "game" is really just a really good pair of pedometers, which do seem to measure about the same as my last pedometer.

The upsides;
- You get to see your activity by time of day
- You can download your Mii from the Mii channel on your Wii if you have one, this is supurb!
- The Activity meters are small, light and robust
- Its really good fun checking your progress, but it does take a little longer than with a standard pedometer

The downsides;
I used to look at my pedometer during the day and see how it was going, there is not screen on the activity meter, so you can't check without a DS being handy

Very very good, though, especially if you are trying to encourage kids to get out an move!
