    New channel - Wii health channel

    A Nintendo distributor has letus know of some new info about the Wii and Health pack that Miyamoto has been teasing us with since the E3 show last year, which appear to suggest the coming of a new Wii Health channel.

    Another Nintendo distributor revealed that the Wii Health Channel will have users perform exercises, and "biometric elements" will be gathered and sent to hospitals contracted by Nintendo "via the corresponding channel that will exist in the Wii". Sounds awesome!

    I just wanted to let you guys know about it and please leave comments and your opinions on this new channel!

    Wow that sounds cool. I thought it was going to be released as another wii game but a channel is just as cool. Thanks for the info.

    Not too sure about the "send the data to hospitals."
    A set of metrics based on age and body composition could be computerized to let you know stuff like : excercise more, eat less sugar, etc...

    I would like an exercise routine tracker. Maybe some additional items to track weight and body metrics. Maybe they can have some sort of body scanning device. Then all of that stuff could be put together and tracked like the Wii Age on Sports.

    Since the Wii supports Bluetooth, 3rd party vendors could come up with heart rate monitors, pedometers, and other tracking devices that you could use away from the Wii and have the Wii download the information when you get back.

    Oh Great, Am i the only one who thinks this is completly pointless. I mean what does it have to do with Video Gaming which is the Wii's primary use. I think Nintendo is just trying to milk every avenue with the wii. And im more than sad to say that if it keeps happening i wont have a wii for much longer. They need to focus a bit more on the games and stop putting out shovel ware channels.

    They want the Wii to be for things other than gaming and personally I think this is a great idea...
    PM to add me to Wii and from there we can add different games!

    I no they want it to be for things other than gaming but somethings are to far, Like i said it seems like they are trying to force anything and everything onto the wii. They are trying to attract every single genre of people into buying the console. Which in one way is smart marketing but for the normal gamer is bad because we have to settle for all this milking thats going on.

    I think its a great thing.. this kind of thing along with the 'for everybody' games gives us hardcore ninty gamers something to do while we wait for the big ones.

    I'd rather have it than not have it.
