This is obviously not a new gadget, but it is still a cool gadget and is the second generation of the Wii Fit product line. I have the older version at home and it provides great motivation for “getting off the couch.” In an increasingly sedentary society, the Wii Fit system is an awesome interactive system to increase the burn rate of those daily calories (especially after those great holiday meals!). The Wii Fit Plus with Balance Board is rated an average of 4.5 stars out of 5 from 680+ buyers at Amazon. Available Now at Amazon.
