Wii fit weighin too light!

We got a wii fit for Christmas and it has suddenly started weighing about a stone too light! (Worked out by weighing myself on scales as well as on the wii fit!) It was stored stood up against a wall overnight just before this happened and im now wondering if that has caused the problem! Is there any way of rectifying this to make it weigh correctly again?

I have tried resetting individual miis but this hasnt worked.

    Problem is that it weighed me too light and now it is calling me a heffer. I weighed myself three times this morning and got a 8 pound differential.

    I had the same problem and adding the extra footpegs and new batteries worked like a charm. Weighing perfectly now. Thanks. Now I'm really motivaated cause I now show in the overweight section which is where I though I was!

I would suggest that you ensure that the board is calibrated properly and that you don't step on it until directed to do so. I'm sure you're already doing this, because it won't let you go on without doing so.

The other solution I would offer is to change the batteries in the unit, and ensure that you are setting the Balance Board on a smooth, sturdy, and flat surface. If you are on shag carpet, it will not function properly. If you have average carpet, try using the little adapters that attach to the feet.

Remember that for the purposes of this program, the exact weight isn't what is most important, but relative weight. Any time you are tracking weight loss, be sure to mark your progress using the same scale. If you chart the Wii vs traditional scales, you should notice that the decrease is the same, regardless of what your starting point may happen to be.

Good luck!

I just read this and followed the advice to add the feet to the bottom. It worked like a charm, I was weighing in 35 lbs lower than normal! (I wish!) 
Hope this helps you as well!

Wii board does not show correct weight, sometimes im a stone heavier or half a stone lighter my actual weight


The Wii balance board isn't known for being hugely accurate, I wouldn't pay too much attention to what it says your weight is.

My Wii fit weighs me at about 20lbs less than all other scales (maybe I shouldn't complain). How do I resist it so it will be more accurate?


Are you doing it on carpet? Mine does the same and I put the board on a hard suface and it's accurate.

My wii fit board keeps jumping in tightrope game


We had that issue one game and the problem was that we had multiple users all using the same Mii character but weighing between a range of 60lb between people. Because the fit uses weight to determine if you are actually jumping (since you're not supposed to break contact with the fit board) if one user weighs more than the previous person who's weight was used as the calibration, the second person will seem to be in a constant 'jump' state. Try resetting the weight for the Mii you're using, or just recalibrate between users. This totally solved our problems!

My Wii Fit is synchronizing just fine with the console but it disconnects the remote when it does. Also, when it asks me to turn on the Wii fit the light flashes and then goes off. The batteries are brand...


I had the same problem myself. After nearly 40 mins of trying and trying the Wii fit board eventually synchronized with out the Wii remotes being affected. The main thing is to make sure you do not hold down the red button on Wii console for more than 10 seconds as this unsyns the remotes. Hope this helps

Wii board


Make sure that you have synced the board to the wii (similar to a controller). You have to take the battery cover off the board and push the sync button. The blue light will start flashing. From there you need to open the front cover of your wii under the power button.

From there you start up wii fit and it will prompt you to turn on your board. You should get a solid blue light. If you don't, you may need to try syncing again.

Wii Fit Weighing Me Wrongly


You should probably put it on a board but if that doesn't work, you could try putting something weighing 12 pounds on the board or in your pockets or whatever.

Wii Fit Doesn't work


Do not stand on the Wii fit board until it says to. The board needs to reset itself before any tests are completed. For best accuracy, complete all the initial tests and follow the instructions to the letter.

Canot use Wii fit balance board


Ensure batteries are fresh. Ensure that Wii Fit (or other Balance Board game) is started up completely before pressing the power button.
