Fitter with the Wii U Fit Meter,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nintendo Wii Fit U Meter - Black (Nintendo Wii U) (Accessory)
The size is about right, small enough not to get in the way when wearing it and light enough not to know its even there. Big enough screen to give you all the information needed. This is where it comes into its own, the info it will display is Steps made, Calories burned, time, temperature (yes, the current temp of where you are), altitude and current feet moved (whether you have gone up or down ie stairs or climbing) METs graph (bigger and more detail once linked to Wii U), weekly kcal chart. And settings for contrast and sound. And a picture of your Mii face with different expressions depending on what you are doing.
There are three simple buttons on the front and NO instructions for use in the box as the Wii U will take you through all of that when you connect it up. It transfers and connects via the IR (infrared) sensor on top of the Wii U GamePad. Very simple to do and quick.
This can only be used with the Wii U and NOT the Wii. The Wii Fit U game is free to download and lasts a month unless you connect this little fella to it, then the game becomes free saving you up to £49.99 r.r.p. This makes it so cheap as I had the balance board from the original Wii Fit game and now this device will add a much more detailed calorie counter.
It is more than a step counter, and a fun game I have started measuring my steps against the London Marathon. Lets see how long it takes me to walk the distance. Great fun and great encouragement. There are climbing ones as well but lets just try walking first. I also bought the green one for the wife as you can have a monitor each and come in different colours but with your face on it you can always tell whose is whose.
