January 2, 2012 - Is Wii Fit Sparkpeople-Compatib
Monday, January 02, 2012
My 15-year old daughter, also new to Sparkpeople, dusted off our Wii-Fit. With the help of the family technology wizard, our 13-year old son, it is again operational. My first time on it (this go-round) was this morning. Some observations:
1. I wonder about the Wii-Fit age algorithm. My Wii doppelganger felt both fat (why I'm here) and hopelessly uncoordinated from a balance perspective. Yet the benign Wii Fit made me feel good by concluding that my Wii-Fit age is 14 years less than my chronological age. And it has new batteries. Go figure.
2. The exercises are too short, and the set-up periods between them too long. But Wii-Fit is fun and a nice change-up from the drudgery of other forms of exercise.
3. I suck at the strength exercises. They require balance.
4. The big quesiton is how Wii-Fit accomplishments easily translate to the fitness tracker here.
