So I had read all the reviews saying that the nunchuk and remote were difficult to insert into the dumbbells and was worried about buying the product. I decided to try it nevertheless and the nunchuk and remote are not that difficult to insert (it takes no more time than say switching to a resistence band and getting it ready during your workout). However doing the exercises is extremely difficult and frustrating for me because the dumbbells get into the way of the cord so when you are trying to do lateral shoulder raises for example, the cord is not long enough. Also the game has more difficulty registering your movements and makes you repeat exercises more frequently. All in all I found these dumbbells to be an exercise in frustration. I will wait for something better to come out, for now I will just use resistance bands that give me more resistance than the one included in the game.

A good product, really adds a burn to a work out you might be getting used to. Also can use with normal games just to get a little extra. I've read reviews complaining about taking the remotes in and out but it's easy as long as you remember to do the nunchuck first. The acuracy is the same. The actual size of the weights was bigger than I expected.

Pretty useless June 5 2010
By E. Hook - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase Fun:   
Although I LOVE my Wii, these dumbbells are pretty useless. It takes so long to hook them up in the middle of your fitness program that you lose momentum. Also, the Wii has trouble reading the remote through the dumbbell. I tried using them for extra weight during boxing and the game wasn't registering my punches. I can't recommend this product.

Not bad for use with the boxing game Dec 31 2010
By W. Robertson - Published on Amazon.com
Fun:   
I use the dumbbells for the boxing game and nothing else. The small amount of extra weight does add to the intensity of the boxing game.

Its inconvenient to take the remote out of the dumbbell each time so I switch to a regular remote when I'm not doing boxing.

You can switch controllers pretty easily in the following way:

Press the home key and go to the remote settings. There you will find the option to reconnect the remotes. You will be prompted to press the 1 and 2 buttons at the same time on each remote (in the order you want them to be connected). I press the 1 and 2 buttons on the remote that I want to become primary and then press home again to return to the Wii fit games.

Not great - not sure I'll keep using these but we will see. At least they are inexpensive (and not flimsy).

Great product for a little extra weight to use with the Wii Fit. Good starter weights - I wish a heavier version would become available.

Design could have been better, but better than nothin! July 6 2010
By alyssa starelli - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase Fun:   
The wii controllers must be placed inside 'tunnels' in the dumbbells. This creates three small issues, which aren't very bad but slightly annoying: a. the controller has a harder time communicating directly with the Wii because of said tunnel and the position you'd generally hold a dumbbell in isn't directly straight forward, so you miss points/hits/whatever. and b. by holding the dumbbell you're actually pressing buttons on the controller - the grip is removed so you've got direct palm to button pressure. and c. it's hard to disconnect the nunchuck from the controller which is required for several other games which dumbbells would make a better workout for, so I end up popping the controller out disconnecting. well, it takes up valuable time.

nice idea though and I'll continue to use them. the design could have been better.

Wrist Weights would be a better option March 9 2010
By Audrie's Place - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase Fun:   
I got these becasue I thought it would be a good way to step up my routine. The weight inside ( i think sand) was loose causing the weighting to not be steady. I returned them because of the weighting flaw and also due to the fact that wrist weights would do the same thing and not be as cumbersome as trying to insert and remove the controller.

I good idea but has some kinks to work out.
