5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Value!! Great Device, November 1, 2013
This review is from: Wii U Fit Meter (Video Game)
Amazing Value! If you already own a balance board from older wii fit games this is a great value! Purchase before Feb and sync with the "demo" version of wii fit u and it unlocks the game for free!!

Value: For $20 you can get the latest and greatest wii fit game if you already own your balance board. Very few games, in the history of console gaming, have offered an "Upgrade" to the newest version for this price. Yes, like wii fit plus, this version of wii fit is technically just the past versions with new upgrades and additions. Still though, most games would make you pay full retail price to even get these upgrades, especially on a new console.

Device Itself: The devices itself is a great device.. I would rate it on par with any high end pedometer. For a pedometer with this many features you would probably pay around the same as the fit meter cost. The meter is very well constructed and comfortable to wear. It has several features from measuring your steps to measuring altitudes. When you sync it with the wii U it uploads your data and helps you see a real picture of how many calories your are burning.. The device seems to take into consideration everything from rest times, to the speed of your steps.. Essentially, as far as I can tell, it knows when you are sitting and slows your calorie burn rate and when you walk it burns faster depending on speed.

It was very very easy to sync with the game (Much easier than controllers) and it is very easy to upload your data. Keep in mind that the game supports as many fit meters as profiles so be sure to pick other meters up for other people in your family if they like pedometers!!

The best part about this device is now I don't have to manually enter my "walking" workouts into wii fit. I know a lot of wii fit users who do that so this device will save you a lot of time if you are one of those users

Game: I will review the game in more detail when it actually releases in December.. We really shouldn't waste our fit meter reviews on game reviews but I will go ahead and say the new additions to wii fit u are great! The dance addition is amazing if you have to wii remotes (Needs one for each hand! Has to be wii remote plus or have the adapter). Please don't expect "Just Dance" here. These are fitness based routines however it has everything from hula music to rap. I think I counted like "8" genres of music. As for the other additions, basically they just added a few new workouts to the same categories we have had in the past.

Graphics: Graphics honestly are the biggest disappointment. They seem to be exactly the same as in the past!! But hey, simple game only needs simple graphics!

More game review will come later!

Overall: I recommend anyone who already owns a balance board to pick up this device.. The device alone is worth the price!! So if you download the demo in the wii u shop, you can say the game is free!!
