Wii Fit U is a 2013 exergaming fitness game developed and published by Nintendo for the Wii U, and is the successor to the Wii games Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus. Like its predecessors, Wii Fit U focuses on engaging the player in physical activities, including yoga and strength training, through use of the Wii Balance Board, a platform peripheral upon which the player stands during play that measures the player's weight and center of balance. The game introduces additional activities that add the Wii U GamePad into gameplay. Exercises are organized by category and by the amount of requisite exertion, measured in numerical values called "MET". Owners of Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus can transfer all saved data into the game.
Wii Fit U can display output on a television screen or only use its GamePad touchscreen. All retail copies of are bundled with a foldable Wii U GamePad Stand and an activity meter (pedometer) called the Fit Meter, which is carried while jogging or otherwise moving. When the Fit Meter is placed near the GamePad, its data is transferred via infrared connection to the Wii U.
Overall, Wii Fit U was well-received by critics, and it has even been used for treatments in physical therapy. Research has found that users feel a better sense of balance and upper body motion, initiating healing for those with brain injury. Concerning basic exercise, one study found that Wii Fit U is not fit for intensive exercise but rather moderate exercise and conditioning.
