Hey Surbe,

Generally, Best Buy™ stores will treat only video game consoles themselves as "hardware." Wii Fit (with the Wii Balance Board) however is considered an accessory/software, as it requires a Nintendo Wii to play.

A good rule of thumb if you are unsure what an item is classified as is to consider the product's primary function. For example, while some of the newest generation of consoles may have multiple additional features (like the Playstation 3's ability to play Blu-Ray discs), each console is generally advertised emphasizing its primary function as video game hardware and not by their secondary features. Wii Fit is essentially an add-on to an already existing product, again making it an accessory/software product.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

How do I charge the wii fit board?


A Wii balance board is not a re-chargable piece of hardware... it's battery powered. You can buy re-chargable battaries and recharge them every time your power runs out (if you really want re-charge capability). Otherwise you can just buy new batteries and replace the old ones when you run out of power.

Whats the diffrence with the wii fit plus and the wii fit


They are just two different versions of the Fit game. The actual Wii Fit device is the same. If you already have a Wii Fit, you can buy Wii Fit Plus as a stand-alone game without the device. The Plus has some newer exercises.

Tried many different types of batteries in Wii Fit, but still won't stop flashing after trying to sync with unit


Open the SD Card slot cover on the front of the Wii console, just below the disc drive, and press and hold the red SYNC button for 15 seconds. This will clear all synced accessories from the console.Then sync all back again, first the Wii Remote/s and then Wii Fit.If you don't know how - Open the front cover on your Wii, then push the red button there, then open the batteries cover on your Wii Remote and push the red button there.Do same for Wii fit.

Wii Fit board not staying on


Best suggestion is to make sure the game is fully loaded before pressing the power button.

If it's not working, make sure you press the red sync button on the Wii Fit Balance Board AND the Wii Console.

I know you tried new batteries, but make sure they are really NEW batteries (My experience is that the alkalines work best).

If it still doesn't work, then you may need to contact Nintendo direct.

Good luck!

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.
