1/ Its the best (only?) digital weight tracking system ever created, that is easily available to the public.
2/ Its innovative, in that whereas there have been "pressure" controllers before - there has never really been a "balance" controller before.
4/ It DOES help lose weight AND build muscle. You are simply wrong in your comments. How so? Well, we could start a new thread based on this alone:
- its more convenient than going to the gym, less time wasting and a lot cheaper
- the user gets '1-1' feedback, rather than just being a single person in a workout class of 20 people
- by adding "game-ness" & "fun" to exercise, it encourages gamers to use it. This I think is the core element of it. Its intentionally part-game & part-exercise. If it was all-exercise, it would be a chore - rather than fun. If it was all-game, it wouldn't be different from anything else.
- the muscle exercises in the game are HARD, and DEFINITELY help build muscle. I have slowly been getting into them, because they actually intimidate me :P
More than anything else, the game helps with awareness - of diet, exercise, posture, balance (etc). I have found my habits are already changing thanks to WiiFit.
Will buying WiiFit turn you into a muscle man, or fitness junkie? No.
Wii buying (and using) WiiFit improve your fitness or health? If used regularly, almost definitely.
1- There are scales that track weight...
2- I believe there was one for the NES actually. the name of it eludes me atm though
4- my points still stand. you failed to illustrate how they were wrong. perhaps you missed some of my points, so please read through all my posts in this thread.
You failed to address the topic of the thread. whether or not wiifit is a fad.
