WiiMote weight accesory for WiiFit

Infendo

Ever feel like you are not getting enough out of your various Wii Fit exercises? Those various yogas mini games not burning enough calories. Heading those soccer balls not working your sides enough. Ever wanted to add some various weight training to your regiment?

Apparently Riiflex thought that way and decided to release an accessory that adds some weight to your WiiMote. You can get either a 2lb or 5lb accessory that wraps around the WiiMote for you to use.

In comparison to all the various useless WiiMote accessories, this might actually be worth picking up. If you are planning to pick this up, they are currently doing a pre-order program that cost five dollars. However, the final price of the accessory is currently unknown. Which is just a tad bit shady.

  1. Now with 5 times the chance to kill a friend with a stray wiimote! I hope there’s a re-enforced strap because those look dangerous.

    Great for responsible use in SINGLE-player wii boxing thoguh (I can already imagine my arms burning).

  2. Yeah, I agree with Liraco.

    the first thing I thought of when I saw this was “Danger Will Robinson! Danger Will Robinson!”

    Someone’s gonna get sued.

  3. If they are cheap, I’ll buy them. Watch them be like $30

  4. Nice! 10lb models would be a nice addition, but their core audience is still, after all, gamers, so 2 and 5 lb models are pretty good weights.

  5. my friend was just talking about how he had trouble holding a weight and his wii mote at the same time for some excerices

    yea they probably wont go beyond the 5lb mark
    and if thats the case then its a shame.

    a 10-15 would be nice for toning in my case
    5lb is just nothing
    but for the general public i guess it fine for it to be the standar.
