Although most health experts wouldn't hang their hats on the Wii as a long-term viable fitness solution, Riiflex has just released a set of snap-on weights for the Wiimote to make the gaming system at least a more feasible one.

The Riiflex weights come in increments of 2 and 5 pounds and are perfect to add some extra oomph to your virtual boxing or tennis matches. They're available for preorder now.

Implications - What I particular like about the Wii gaming console that the Riiflex weights pick up on is the ability to create games that encourage weight loss and a healthy lifestyle. Stats for Dumbbells for Gamers Trending: Older & Mild
