We've been playing Just Dance and Wii Fit quite a bit lately and I was thinking a small wrist-band or watch type controller would be handy. The wiimote gets heavy for my 5-year-old and you really just need the motion sensor for these games and maybe "A" and "B" buttons to advance through menus. Does this exist already?

  • Not sure but the "heavy controller" fits the Wii fit very well :D.

  • I would suggest that if your 5 year old is finding the unit to be too heavy, you should use this as a time-limit factor. Children that age should have their screen time limited anyway. I would not limit them to the draconian limits set by the American Academy of Pediatrics, but the amount of time it takes for them to tire of holding a wiimote is probably a good built-in limit.

There is no such controller for Wii or Wii-U currently (but nobody knows what Nintendo is cooking up)

This is pretty much a technology/cost barrier. as the motion detection hardware is quite large (although it has been getting smaller if you notice wii-motes now come with motion+ and are the same size as original wii-motes). Hardware that small that stil works effectively in a gaming environment is also probably quite expensive even if it does exist,

If you want to play motion games without the weight of a bulky controller, try investing in the Kinect. Now that the Xbox One is out you could probably find a cheap Xbox 360+Kinect bundle or something.


No. There is only the regular controller.
