Jordan starts a series of videos looking at Wii Fit U and it’s new Gamepad and Pedometer features. Each week she will be looking closely at what the Fit Meter and Gamepad offer over and above Wii Fit (and Wii Fit 2) on the Wii. While reviews dipped into the experience, we want to get a real world view of how good the game is at improving fitness in the medium to long term.
Information about the free trial and Fit Meter activation of full game:
Official Blurb: “Fitness and Fun Come to Wii U. 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 favourite exercises from Wii Fit Plus as well as new exercises 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 away from the console.
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 such as The Luge mini game.
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 previous save data.
Friends and family members can take turns using their own Mii characters within various activities.
