Linking physical activity away from an exergame or other non-mobile connected device has been a scenario that has not been explored but holds plenty of promise. As Zamzee's recent findings, having an accelerometer and access to a social network where rewards are given out based on activity levels showed a significant increase (60%) in PA than the control group that did not have access to the website. Using a new pedometer dubbed the Fit Meter (see Pokewalker for DS), Nintendo will be releasing Wii Fit U in 2013. If the device looks familiar, it should and it appears it will interface with the Wii U controller via infrared sensors like the Pokewalker did with the DS. Will U Buy It?
