Wii Fit allows users to install the Wii Fit Channel to the Wii Menu. The channel allows them to view and compare their results, and those of others, as well as their progress in the game, without requiring the game disc to be inserted.

The channel is essentially a stripped down version of Wii Fit. It allows users to view statistics from the game including users' BMI measurements and balance test scores in the form of a line graph, as well as keep track of the various activities they have undertaken with a calendar. Users are also able to weigh themselves and do a BMI and balance test with the channel once per day. However, if the player wishes to do any exercises or play any of the aerobics games and/or balance games, the game prompts the user to insert the Wii Fit game disc.

Emulation Information

Wii Balance Board

This title supports Wii Balance Board, though no emulation is provided for the Wii Balance Board. The real Wii Balance Board may be required to access some features.

  • In Bluetooth Passthrough mode, a Balance Board can be synced just like any Wii Remote, without any special configuration. Refer to the article for details.
  • Otherwise, set the Balance Board option in the Controller Configuration dialog from "None" to "Real Balance Board". Then press the red "Sync" button in the battery compartment of the balance board, and press "Refresh" if Continuous Scanning is disabled. There is no fast sync (Wii Remote 1+2) in the Balance Board, so the sync button must be used each time.


Missing Banner Mii Faces and Graph

Mii faces and the graph are missing in the banner and overview on the system menu. Disable Store EFB Copies to Texture Only on both the channel and the main game to fix this (both of them generate the images). Refer issue 11858.


Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed.

Test Entries
Revision OS CPU GPU Result Tester
4.0-1349 Windows 8 AMD FX 6300 @ 3.6 GHz AMD Radeon HD 6450 Unbootable from Dolphin GUI and from Wii Menu US v4.49 Faefdsedf
5.0-10648 Windows 10 AMD A6-340M APU @ 1.5 GHz AMD Radeon HD 6520G Perfect emulation of the body test and other functionality in the channel, along with switching to the disc when inserted. Performance was bad (20-30 FPS), but that is about what I expected with my old hardware. Pokechu22
