    Does any Wii Fitters know if when you are doing "jogging" on the one when you can watch TV, can you in fact leave the house?

    I did a 20 min jog this morning in the lounge and kitchen but could I go round the block or would it break the communitcation with the Wii?

    Thanks in advance!!

    I think it probably would break the connection, but I have never tried. I doubt the connection is strong enough to go far.

    oooh Santa brought us a Wii Fit Plus...haven't got it out the box yet lol! Am gagging to have a go, but the boys are dominating it with Wii Sports and MarioKart lol! Although it is hilarious to see a grown adult's ass whipped by a child of 7.

    I haven't tried it for a while, being somewhat averse to jogging, and also being unable to "Wii Fit" just now anyway!

    However, the sensor bar uses infrared which I think means that your remote has to be within line of sight of it. When I did try jogging I did put the remote in a pocket and I think that works, but I'm not sure that a wall or a window is likely to allow infrared to pass through. Someone more scientific than me can probably tell you in a better way, though!

    The Wiimotes are wireless (for the accelerometer and buttons) and infra-red to see the sensor bar for delicate pointing.

    They have a fair range but not right round the block!

    Actually........you can go round the block in the "free jog" mode- as long as you keep the controller with you as I discovered earlier! Whoop! It doesn't need to be in range of the sensor in that mode.

    Does it still count the amount of metres gone?

    Had my first-ever go on Wii Fit at our daughter's house on Hogmanay.....well chuffed that my "age" according to the machine was 7 years less than my real age, not so chuffed when it told me was "overweight" at 12 stone 3 or thereabouts (I'm 5 foot 8). The jogging is nae bother - sit still, move the controller up and down and so far as the machine is concerned - you're jogging!

    This still allows for the eating of pizza and drinking of wine
