I live in Indiana which is pretty, but where I live is table flat. The advantage is that I can see for miles but all I see is corn, soy beans and more corn. LOL It's freezing today. Think the high is only supposed to be 50. Lovely.

You are very right Tami, I do live in the most beautiful country of the world and I sure take advantage of that. My morning runs/walks are breath taking in all aspects emoticon

My mom picked up the wii fit plus yesterday, and I totally love it. I love how you can set your calorie burn. This evening I rode a bike, did math by bumping my hips, marched in a parade, and golfed. I then jogged for 30 minutes. I haven't jogged in ages, defentily got my workout tonight.

Christel- Things may move slower in New Zealand but hey, YOU LIVE IN NEW ZEALAND! You make up for the slowness by living in one of the most gorgeous countries on earth.

Bummer. But at least you know the real answer now, Christel. Hopefully, in 2 weeks they'll know right away what you want and you can be the first in town to have it. Good luck!

Well - we found out that what I bought was not the wii fit plus soft ware but just the sensor plus, the new jacket for the wiimote - AAARGHH. Here in New Zealand the world turns a big slower it seems. The sales person didn't even know what I was talking about. In another shop I nearly lost my plot and stormed out as the sales assistant kept telling me that the wii fit only comes as a bundle although I told him that it was a new soft ware on a CD. He shrugged his shoulders and we left. In yet another shop, after the shoulder shrugging, at least the young man said that he would ask his supervisor and we got somewhere - YAY!!!
The wii fit plus software is not out in New Zealand yet for about another 2 weeks. AAARRRGHH emoticon

Yes, I'm from Canada and I had to go into the Wii console settings and change the country from Canada to United States. It fixed the problem.

Wow I just saw this ? a couple of days ago I think the person figured out that they had to go into the orginal part of the game and change the settings there...I can't remember exactly what they said though but there is a thread in this team or the other one I'm in and I'll try and find it...

Dunno. I think I might like Kgs. Its a lower number to look at. LOL Seriously, I just got mine in the mail and have a sore back so I havent' even opened it.

What I want to know is does it make all the little snide remarks like "be sure to lay off the afternoon snacks!" Those make me swear at it!

I have a question for other Canadians. The weight in Wii Fit Plus is showing in Kg and I prefer pounds. Does anyone know how I am able to change that? With the old Wii Fit it was automatically in pounds.

I believe that's correct, only one person could do the routine at a time on the old Fit... I don't think you can use two boards at the same time. This would be true for the Fit Plus as well, but in Fit Plus they now allow you to create a workout (choose your exercises and the order of them), and if you choose to work out with a buddy, then you take turns. I haven't actually done it or explored that area much yet, but that's what it looks like.

You don't need anything except the Fit Plus software, which runs around $20. All the rest is the same.

Calli - So on the old board you basically have to stop your workout and then let the other person do theirs in order to do it together? Or is it the same if you both have boards at the same time? Another question is do you need to buy a different sensor bar that sits on top of or in front of your Tv? Thanks.

One other thing to consider is that in the new version people can take turns on the board. In the old version one person would have to exit the program, the new person log in, and that's how you had to accomodate two people. Now you can say that you want to work out with someone and it will let you alternate.

The board hasn't changed. It's the software that is different. The new software works with any board, but it is now packaged with the board if you buy new.

When you use the Fit Plus for the first time all your data from the other version is automatically updated to the new software. Very easy.

One other thing that no one has mentioned that I like is that when it asks you if you want to hear a fitness tip and you say "no", it just leaves it alone. The old one had some comment to make, like "Well, if you ever want to hear a fitness tip... blah blah blah". Now it just takes "no" for an answer and moves on!

If I buy a new Wii Plus Board can you use one of the old Wii Boards in combination with it or do I have to have both Plus Boards? I am thinking about getting another one so my son can do the fitness along with me once he gets his arm healed. Thanks.

The new Wii Fit Plus GAME is compatible with the Wii Motion Plus, but it isn't necessary. Many of the new games coming out will use the new motion plus sensor... it enhances the wiimote... but the games that use it can still be played with the plain old wiimote.

it also allows you to create custom routines or it will make one for you . What I love about that is it goes from one exercisse to the next no bouncing in and out. Love it

That is right, you don't need the new sensitive remotes for the Wii plus. All you need is the Wii plus game which is running around $20.00. With it you will have the ability to play against each other and it will also transfer all your information over to the new platform. All the old games are there along with lots of fun new ones.

Boooohooo - Stupid shop assistant! I told him that I wanted the wii plus game and he sold me the new, more sensitive wiimote.
Thanks Angi for explaining. I should have read it BEFORE I went to Noleming. We don't have Walmart here. So we don't even need the new wiimote for the wii plus? Will I give him an ear full tomorrow or what?

CristelW- the mii motion plus is the addition to the wiimote. That helps your remote be more sensitive to wrist and arm movement.
We are talking about the wii fit plus game that you can buy for your wii fit. It is different from the wii motion plus. It has more exercises on it, and a better set up than the original wii fit games. The new game is running about 20 dollars at Gamestop and Walmart.

I have bought 2 wii plus to day but I haven't had time to try it yet, will do in a minute though. I trust that the wii fit plus is the new sleeve that goes on the wii remote. If it is not I will scream and so will hubby. It wasn't that expensive, I was pleasantly surprised, that's why I bought it. So please people, tell me that I bought the right thing(s)

If you look down the list of topics in this forum you'll see a topic called "Wii Fit Plus On Oct.4th". You'll find some discussion of it there.

There has been a lot of discussion here & there about it. Everyone who has it seems to like it. I have it and I love it. It has all the stuff the original has, plus more. They've made many improvements and added new activities. They have added some games to challenge your mind also. The consensus is that it is well worth the $20 that it costs.

I just heard about this today and was wondering if anyone has bought it yet and if you like it better than the standard Wii Fit. What are the main differences? I'm trying to decide if I would like the Plus version since I really like the standard one.
