Kickstart a healthy walking habit
in 2009 with Nintendo DS
Put a spring in your step and help
to enrich your life in 2009 with the fun new Nintendo DS software Walk with me!
Do you know your walking routine? set to launch across Europe on June 5, 2009.
A good active walking routine is
recognised as an important part of a balanced and healthy lifestyle. Now
Nintendo’s Walk with me! can help you to get in tune with your personal walking
regime, compare it with friends, family or even your pet, and see how you
compare to walkers across the globe!
This latest lifestyle software
designed exclusively for the Nintendo DS comes with two specially designed
pedometers called Activity Meters which measure your daily steps minute by
Slim and convenient, the Activity
Meter will fit into your bag or pocket as you walk and will measure your
activity through the day. You can set daily walking targets with a basic setting
of 3,000 steps which can be increased each day to suit your activity levels.
The data is collected and stored on
the Activity Meter for up to seven days and can be easily transferred to your
Nintendo DS, so you can track your progress. Simply point the Activity Meter at
the Nintendo DS like a TV remote control and with one click of the button on the
meter, your data will be sent by infrared signal.
With the ability to store data for
up to four users, you can compare your activity with other members of your
family or friends– even ranking yourself against the family dog!
Walk with me! also offers a variety
of fun mini-games to help motivate you to walk. You can use your collected steps
to unlock trivia, create images and find out how much electrical energy your
walking would have generated for the day.
Using the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection,
users send their step data to compare with people all over the world and there
are two other great ways of bringing your walking routine to life and sharing
You can post your own step data to
combine it with users around the world and create a world step count. This is
then used to plot a virtual walk across the solar system. The distance between
planets has been calculated in steps and you will see graphically how you and
other world users are doing on your journey through space.
Every Sunday the walking rankings
for all users will be updated on a global scale with an interim ranking every
day covering total steps, highest step count in the world and the previous
week’s step count. Anyone who then updates their game will be able to view the
world’s top ranked players and how far they have walked.
Walk with me! is easy to use and
will bring fun to your daily walking routine helping you in your journey to a
healthier lifestyle. Step on up and get your copy now!
