FitXR Review. VR Fitness Game On The Oculus Quest, Can It Really Get You Fit? | Healthier Way

By



FitXR VR fitness game review on the Oculus Quest. Can a fitness game on a virtual reality headset really get you fit? I take a look at FitXR, which has replaced BoxVR, to see if it provides a proper cardio workout. I also take a look at how many calories you can burn, and if this is accurately reported in the game, and does it raise your heart rate.

  1. I use BoxVR so I wanted to see what this looked like. Same thing really. For me I can raise calories by increasing the intensity of the shadow boxing. I love these apps! Silicon cover is a great idea, I do have a small amount of salt staining.

  2. Good review, as for the calories you are right to trust the watch, the game is just guessing wildly the garmin has your HR info so will give more accurate calories burned especially if it knows your correct weight ect.

  3. Thank you for the video! I enjoy "Beat Saber" and always looking for other "fitness games". I would really like to see a follow-up to see what repeated use has done for you (or not, as the case may be).

  4. This basically looks like shadow boxing. Which is a good style of exercise. As long as you're giving this your all, and not just cheesing your way through it, I think anything is better than just sitting on the couch.

  5. These VR fitness games really do work ! You are going to want to do your resistance training (Yoga Weights calisthenics) elsewhere. but you can get some excellent core training and cardio with apps like this , the games with squats like this one and Pistol whip can even stand in for everybody's most hated workout day LEG DAY! . I recommend Sprint vector as a calorie torching good time in 8 player multplayer race. if you got a gang of fitness vr buddies

  6. Honestly seems like good old Creed Rise to Glory is still better for pumping blood. If you go against the hardest AI, it is actually very difficult to win πŸ˜›

  7. As you play more your streaks get higher. I regularly have over 200 . I would hate if they made that easier. I'm 56 so this isn't unobtainable for you. Yes their calorie counter sucks

  8. If you're familiar with Sidequest, you should check out Hitstream. It's free right now as it's still in development, though from what I've played I enjoy it much more than FitXR, and it has potential to become better than Beat Saber if the team keeps improving the game. It's so good!

  9. I had the same question/concern for streaks when I first started but now I always get 300-800 streaks every time I play. It was a change they made but after a while I think it’s way better. Just takes time to adjust for new streak formula.

  10. I had to figure out on my own how to get my streak to get high. I like it because it keeps you working hard and burning calories. My highest streak was 44. I love my gift bought for my baby brother.

  11. So besides points and streaks… how does it COMPARE to beatsaber as a workout? I play beatsaber on expert and play to workout and not just flicking my wrists for points. This looks so similar I cant tell if I should waste 30$ for the same activity.

  12. For this game to be an effective workout, you have to play with proper form and stay consistent with power. Rotate your wrists with your jabs while keeping the other hand up, put your whole body into your punches, especially your hooks and uppercuts. Tightening your abs can help too, and proper balance on your feet (like pushing weight from back to front with your right cross). Basically try to emulate proper boxing form as much as possible, instead of treating it as a game to just hit markers with your controllers.

  13. What makes you think the other players are bots? I just assumed they had to be real people. I don't see why they wouldn't be either.

    I do think they're not necessarily doing it at the same time as you though.

  14. My Quest told me I burned 340 kcal from only about 15 mins of play time. I didn't believe that at all. If that were the case, then I could just play games for a couple of hours a day and eat anything I want and never gain weight πŸ˜› As much as I'd like to think that was true, I know that my belly fat will not agree πŸ˜‰

  15. Thanks for posting this. I am going to try with my heart rate strap to track calories burnt. Do you know where to get a silicone protector for the quest? Also have you tried YUR to track calories instead of FitXR?
