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."
  • ESRB Rating: EVERYONE

Since this is my 2nd day using the personal trainer, so far I love it! I was able to transfer my Mii character from my Wii in a matter of seconds so cool! It is much slimmer & so compact to carry compared to the pedometer I previously used & there is no annual fee to connect to the online program like I used to do!!! It connected to my DS & my Wii without any problems! I love the graphics too! I highly recommend this to get you motivated to get active!

The pedometers work very well, they will track your movements throughout the day and then tell you what time of day you did the most/least amount of walking. I only wish that they had a digital display of your steps on the pedometer itself--you have to log into the game on the DS in order to check your steps. The game itself is really cute, but it will get annoying as it features a little talking pedometer that talks and talks and talks...I sometimes wish it would just hurry up and get to the point. There's not really any way around it, even if you speed through it, it still has to give you its little speech every time so it gets pretty annoying. If you can get over that, it's otherwise really cute and gives you challenges every day and it will remind you to stick with healthy habits. You can also play with the number of steps it tracked for you, and there's little mini-games that are great for kids. I'm 27, and I find them mildly amusing. For $15, you get two pedometers and a game...not too bad considering the fact that you can't find a decent pedometer for that price.

I love this. The pedometer is so adorable and tiny, you just slide it into your pocket/purse, or screw int he attachment to clip it onto your pants. I love how you can just press the button to sync it with the DS (or DSI) and it shows how much steps you've taken. My mom and I are now going against eachother to see who can walk the most. So far i'm winning but you never know. :) Its not a normal pedometer where with every step or bump in a car it counts. It actually waits 10 seconds before it starts to count. I love this product, and would recommend it. :)

The idea was attractive, since I need motivation to exercise a lot more following heart surgery and a lung collapse. But it appears that unless one is already fairly active, walking at least regularly if not briskly, the pedometer is not reliable. I gave the software and both pedometers to my daughter and son-in-law and they have enjoyed it, competing for whose meter "goes green" earliest in the day, and resetting their step targets. So it works, it's just not sensitive enough to do what I had hoped it would do for me. I get a lot of exercise and enjoyment from Wii Sports, so that will have to do since I'm too lazy to actually get out and walk like I'm supposed to.

I just received mine and had it set up and transfered my Mii from my Wii in a few minutes. It was easy and quick. I am new to the DSi, but experienced with the Wii and have the whole Fit system, including the new "Active" software. This will add to my fun as I have quite a bit more weight to take off. This is a great addition and well worth the $$! You won't regret this purchase - ENJOY!

Wasn't sure what to expect when I ordered this, it's marketed as a 'game' so I guess I expected something along the lines of Brain Age or Flash Focus. What you actually get is a DS game card and 2 pedometers that will gather information on your 'activity' habits and allow ou to download to the card where it will assess your activity for the day based on the default 'goals' or you can set your own. In assessing your activity it uses amusing animal analogies to describe your activity and also gives you a daily 'mini-goal' sometimes unrelated to walking, such as; "avoid eating salty food". Note, although it states it can hold more than a days worth of data, you are encouraged to download on a daily basis since the activity assessment is that way, I have been doing it every evening. I use one for myself and the other for my Pekinese dog, yes it works on dogs too! I get to see how active we both are and the ability to download a Mii character from Nintendo Wii is cute, or you can create your own. Personal trainer: Walking will suggest increasing your step goal when appropriate and is a great way to track your walking / exercise having some fun while you do it. Also, the Walmart online price beat anything I found on eBay, including used items!

the price of this item in the store is around $40. online at Walmart.com it's only $14.96! Can't beat that at all. Shipped to store; no shipping charges. this product itself is fun. I've actually forgot I had this clipped to my jeans and sent it thru the wash and it somehow survived. Then today I sent it thru both the wash and the dryer; not sure it survived yet. I'm not sure how many more times I can forget and then wash it so I bought another set.
