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!
