The Wii balance board, now known as the Wii U balance board, is a fun way to measure and track fitness metrics like weight, balance and movement. The Wii U platform has also introduced a new Wii U Fit Meter that tracks steps and calories burned even when you aren’t using the Wii balance board.
But a Wii balance board isn’t the only option for people looking to track fitness metrics at home. You can actually build your own Wii-style balance board using a little tech savvy.
