Along with most (if not all) of the activities from the previous games in the series, Wii Fit U offers new ones compatible with the Wii U GamePad, such as Dessert Course, Trampoline Target, and Hose Down. The Body Test can now also be performed using only the Wii U GamePad and Wii Balance Board.
In the Press Release from E3 2012, it was stated that Wii Fit U would allow save data transfers from previous installments. Since it has not been brought up since, it is not clear whether this is still an option.
Players can now make their own "Gym Communities", private Miiverse communities only available to those who know that community's specific password. This is the first Wii U game to allow such a feature.
