Hands on with the Wii Premium Fitness Board from Snakebyte
by Mark R
Yesterday, I reported on some interesting Wiimotes from Snakebyte, and I will have to admit that I wished Nintendo made their controllers with their Snakebyte’s design. Today, I will discuss Snakebyte’s version of the Wii Balance Board.
Again, Snakebyte managed to create a version of the Balance Board that I wished Nintendo created originally. The first thing that you will notice is how the balance board has a tiny screen on the top-center that isn’t included with Nintendo’s Wii Kit. That is designed to take your weight, at all times.
Yes, you can use the Wii Premium Fitness Board as your bathroom scale. Not only that, it has some very nifty blue lights on the side.
It is pretty fantastic, but the thing that I don’t know is how it compares to the Wii balance board. In other words, is it more sensitive than the one that already comes with the Wii Fit kit? I tried it out, and I honestly didn’t see a difference.
You should be able to get the Wii Premium Fitness Board at the Snakebyte website for a price of about $54.99. Just to let you know, it is usually $69.99, and I think that is a sale price.
