Nintendo has trained people's brains and made fitness fun. Now Personal
Trainer: Walking gives the simple act of walking a high-tech twist.
This title comes with two Activity Meter™ accessories that record every
step users take and when they take it. Personal Trainer: Walking
translates the data into interactive graphs that help users set goals
and see their progress over time.
Users toss an Activity Meter into a pocket or purse, or clip it onto a
belt, and Personal Trainer: Walking does the rest. The meters
record every step taken throughout the day and can be synced to send
data wirelessly to a Nintendo DS or Nintendo DSi system.
The software converts users' information into fun, interactive
graphical displays. These "life rhythm" readouts allow users to
discover interesting facts about their levels of activity throughout
the day and help them avoid being sedentary. Data for up to four users
can be stored on one game card. Users can even clip a meter to a dog's
collar and record walking data for their pets as well.
Personal Trainer: Walking invites users to set daily walking
goals, but it also helps them to recognize their activity patterns
over longer periods of time. It records up to five years' worth of
walking data to help users track their progress. This collection of
data can motivate people to set new goals and become more active.
Personal Trainer: Walking is the first Nintendo DS game to use
Mii™ characters. Users can import their Mii characters from the Wii
console or create new ones using the Personal Trainer: Walking software.
Users can even create Mii characters for their dogs.
The "Walk the World" feature lets users draw pictures on the face of
the Earth using the total number of steps they take, while users who
have wireless broadband Internet access can see a display of the total
steps taken by users around the world on their virtual journey to
other planets in "Space Walk."
