Riiflex Dumbbells Provide Weights For The Wii

Add one more fitness accessory to the long list of equipment available for the Wii: Riiflex Dumbbells. To me, virtual dumbbells seem about as ridiculous and useless as it gets--especially when they weigh only 2 pounds. But someone saw a glimmer of usefulness in the idea and brought us the Riiflex Dumbbells for the Wii. A long time in the making, the Wii accessories are now available for purchase.

The Riiflex's are "ergonomic, gym-quality weights" that secure around your Wiimote and provide a little extra resistance to your Wii workout. A soft rubber covers the actual weights so they won't break your valuables (or foot) if you accidentally drop one during a vigorous Wii session.

The weights work with a variety of Wii games including Wii Fit Plus, EA Sports Active and Fitness Ultimatum. They're available here for $29.99.
