This armband is a complete joke. I think it was designed for people with anorexia, because anyone who has any amount of flesh on their bones will have trouble getting it on their forearm. Forget the upper arm--it's impossible. The thing is designed for super tiny arms that most people simply don't have. Also, there is no quick and convenient way to get the Wii-mote in and out of it. You have to struggle with getting the Wii-mote in or out of the elastic straps, which defeats the whole purpose of having the armband in the first place. What's more, the elastic straps that go over the remote interfere with the remote's sending ability, making hitting those "Next" and "Start" button confirmations difficult. Don't make the same mistake I did: this thing isn't worth your money. I guess I'll just have to keep setting the remote down and picking it up--I might actually burn some calories in the process!

The concept sounds great, the exacution is poor.

It is hard work to get the controller into the armband in the first place. It is even harder to get it to stay in place to keep from losing the connection to the Wii system itself.

Good idea, wish it had worked... I am back to holding the renote which can be a PIA while taking a jog around the island.

I ordered this because I like to run with the Wii Fit Plus running, and most of my workout clothes don't have a pocket. I thought this would be a great solution to hold the remote, as well as when doing a routine (during yoga, you have to press the "A" button alot). However, it does not work with the motion sensor attached. Since it's not easy to get the silicone cover off and detach the motion sensor, the remote does not fit into the armband pocket. I've noticed on other similar items it's the same. I'll have to jury rig something here at home, or sew one up myself.

I am a daily user of Wii Fit Plus and EA Sports Active 2. I mostly bought this product to use with the latter, seeing as it does not require any button presses during the exercises. This would be a great product if it were designed a little better.

Regarding other comments on this site, this product is in no way 'too small'. I weigh 160 lbs and I wear it as tight as it will go. This would easily fit someone twice my size. I saw a comment about the difficulty getting the remote in and out. That was a non-issue for me. I found it easy to transfer the remote from the gel case to this case in less than 30 seconds.

The way it rides on the wrist, it is often slipping over one side or the other of my wrist while working out, even when worn quite tight. When doing exercises that require you to bend your wrist (e.g. pushups, downward facing yoga poses) the remote will press quite uncomfortably into your hand. The other option wearing it on the inside of your wrist, making it so the top of the remote is pressing into the floor. I'm giving this product three stars because for about 30-40% of the exercises in EA Active, such as soccer and basketball, it is still easier to use this wrist holder than to hold the remote, even with it's flaws.

Be sure you have a Wii remote with the motion plus built in. This product will not accommodate the remotes with the motion plus aftermarket add-on.

The way this product should be designed is with a two-piece wrist strap and remote holder. Connecting the two would be a click-lock swivel allowing you to easily adjust and wear the remote parallel, perpendicular or at a 45 from your arm, depending on the exercise. When they design it like that, then buy this product.

I purchased this to wear on my wrist so I would not have to hold the remote when playing Just Dance Summer Party. It was easy to slide the remote in and strap it securely to my wrist. It stayed in place while I was dancing and didn't see to interfere with game play. The game was still able to register my moves and calories burned. I haven't tried with the Wii Fit games yet, but I assume it will work just as well with those.

Finally! I don't have to worry hitting moves just right since I purchased the hands free straps. It really is easier.

I bought this to use with the Just Dance 4. I thought I might be able to use it with a few other games but it holds the B button (the underside button of the Wii remote) down which interferes with the use of the remote and other buttons.

I am sort of satisfied with it. I tried it out with Just Dance 4. I'm not sure it's completely picking up all my moves (on the right arm) and it slides down to my wrist. I think it might work better if there were 2 straps on it, one at the front and one at the back. That might hold it in place better with maybe elastic added to it since the strap is difficult to get tight without any assistance. I see it has a place for the nun chuck attachment but I'm not sure that is going to work with it holding the B button down. I'll have to try that at another time.

All in all it is nice not to have to hold the remote while working out with the Just Dance 4, and it does hold the remote so it won't slip out. It is a bit hard to get the remote in and out of the strap, but that might loosen up after it's been used awhile? If it does loosen up, I don't that the remote will fly out and be hazardous to the TV or any other piece of furniture or living thing in the room.
