Wii Fit (Wii)
Advantages: Fun to use and easy to understand
Disadvantages: A multiplayer option would be good!
We purchased our Wii and Wii Fit as a bundle from Game. We love our Wii and Wii Fit an use it regularly even three years on.
The Wii Fit comes with a game and balance board. The balance board syncs with your Wii an works with the game (along with some other games too).
There are a lot of exercises to do on the Wii Fit such as Yoga, Leg Exercises, Boxing, and Step. You complete these exercise while standing on the board and the Wii tells you how you are doing and clocks your exercise time. There are also games such as Hula Hooping that are more fun. Its a great game to set you moving. The game is easy to navigate and there are lots of exercises and games to play on you own. There's not many multiplayer options which would be a good addition!
The Wii balance board is sturdy and not likely to break very easily. It takes 4 x AA batteries but you can purchase a rechargable pack from some shops such as Amazon and it's worth getting these as it will soon drain your standard batteries.
However, Nintendo promote the Wii Fit as an exercise option. I think this is an exaggeration in my opinion. Yes the Wii Fit could supplement your current exercise and add aspects such strength training or yoga but I don't think it should be used for all of you exercise. You are not likely to burn a lot of calories or really break into a sweat.
Summary: Not ideal to base all your exercise regime around
