The Wii Fit performs various tests to calculate a Wii Fit age which indicates our fitness level. This video guides you through the process of how to calculate your Wii Fit age.
Hello. I'm Rene Millman. I'm the editor of Absolute Gadget, the gaming and gadget news website.
Today, I'm going to be talking to you about how to get the most out of you Wii console. In this video, we'll be showing you how to find out your Wii Fit age. On the Wii Fit, you can do various body tests of balance and fitness, and what Wii Fit does is use these test results to tell you your Wii Fit age.
With the Wii Fit age, it gives you an indication of how fit you are. The higher the Wii Fit age, the less fit you are. So you want to get that number as close to your age or even less than your age as possible, and you can do that by doing the exercises on a daily basis and generally adopting a more healthy lifestyle.
And that's how you would get your Wii Fit age down to the appropriate level. So now, I'm going to show you a few tests you can do on the Wii Fit to calculate your Wii Fit age and also to find out how you can decrease that Wii Fit age and become fitter. We spread our feet apart, loosen the shoulders, and stay relaxed.
Now, it's just measuring me. It's going to measure my weight and tell me how fat or thin I am. Okay, while it's measuring me, it's also measuring my centre of gravity, and as you can see here I'm just a tiny bit away from perfect balance, which it assumes to be a good thing.
So, we will see that my BMI is overweight. We're going to measure my athletic ability. So we've got two balance tests; one for the body, one for the mind.
Spread apart, and we're going to try and keep our balance in the blue area for 3 seconds. So, I'll press the A button, put my weight on the right foot there for 3 seconds. Right, okay, so now I've got to hold the Wiimote in both hands, and keep my arm and leg balance within the blue area for 3 seconds.
This is going to be interesting. So, we use the motion sensor in the Wiimote as well as the sensors in the bar. So this is going to be complicated.
So I'll move my foot over there, and try and yes, and move again. This is quite difficult to do this and talk as well. Obviously, you'll get better as the weeks progress.
And, yes, I managed to get 3 rounds out of 5, so okay, quite average. So, after doing these tests, Wii Fit calculates what's called your Wii Fit age, and that will give you a sense of how fit you are. Obviously, the older the Wii Fit age, the more you need to improve your fitness.
So I've just done the test, so I'm just going to show you now what my Wii Fit age is. I'll press the A button here, and it will tell me, in reality TV style, that I am 49, which is not really what I wanted, but it's not too bad. It does mean that I have to actually then improve my age, so I've got to try and knock off 17 years off my Wii Fit age to get better.
So that's how we calculate our Wii Fit age on the Wii Fit. .
