You can't improve what you can't measure, and the Fitbit Aria is currently our favorite device for keeping tabs on weight-related health stats. Your detailed weight, BMI, and body fat percentage graphs are automatically uploaded via WiFi to your private Fitbit account, where you can monitor your results with the latest fad diet or get more meaningful (and actionable) longer-term trends about your body -- something you just can't easily do with a traditional scale. And unlike the Withings wireless scale, the Aria is smaller, feels sturdier, has better, more stable feet, and has a much better site for viewing your progress.

The Fitbit Aria Wi-Fi Smart Scale may live in your bathroom, but its excellent syncing capabilities put your health stats online, where you can reap greater rewards from data it collects over the long-term.

When used in concert with the company’s little activity measurement widget, the Aria gives you a truly complete picture (literally, in two-tone graphs) of your body’s mass fluctuations over time, and the impact your activity level has on these changes.

Used properly (with a healthy diet, sensible exercise plan and a realistic approach to weight loss), we think the scale is a great bathroom that will prove a valuable aid to many people who are trying to better manage their weight.

$130 might seem like a lot for a scale, especially when most basic digital scales cost $30, but the online data and self-tracking capabilities tell you a lot more than what you weigh this morning. And that means more motivation, even for those like me, who won't ever like stepping on a scale.

We think the FitBit Aria scales are a cool digital addition to any bathroom. They look decent, they work well, don’t cost a fortune and are fuss-free to set up.

It’s useful, and I’m slightly more inclined to use it than any other scale, but ensuring that the scale is in range of your Wi-Fi network could prove tricky for some.

I find myself compelled to weigh myself every day, and I’m more aware of what I am eating. All in all, Fitbit has really knocked this product out of the park – so much so that now that Fitbit Aria exists, the modern scale will never be the same.

Good-looking and easy to use, the Fitbit Aria Wi-Fi Smart Scale is a painless way to keep track of your body weight and fat percentage - especially useful if you're building muscle rather than just out to lose weight.

Digital Versus Aug 1, 2012

At $130, the Fitbit Aria is pretty expensive scale. For those who are obsessed about reaching their goal weight, however, the scale is a neat and informative tool that pushes you to continue confronting your actual weight and attempt to reach your goals.

Seeing a graph heading in the right direction is genuinely pleasing, and slip ups are harder to self-justify when presented visually. ... it's expensive for a set of bathroom scales, so I can only recommend the Fitbit Aria to fitness fans, and they lose points for that irritating set up glitch.

At $130 it probably costs too much for what it is, but that is the price of early adoption. If you aren't a Fitbit user, it makes NO SENSE at all for you. End of day, its just a scale with wifi but I enjoy it.

We own a Withings scale, and I always hoped that they'd build in integration with Fitbit's services (I'm a Fitbit Ultra user). Well, now they don't have to, because Fitbit has gone and made their own scale, which we first saw this past CES. The scale is really lovely... set up is a snap,...

I've debated for quite a while if I really wanted to go to this level of tracking. I finally relented and purchased the scale. Initially I had problems setting up the device until I realized that the scale only has 802.11 b/g networking. While I don't fault the device in the 'Ease of use'...

I'm totally invested in the Fitbit ecosystem, so buying the scale so me and my boyfriend could keep track of our weights was a no-brainer. I love the way it looks (I got the black model). It's more attractive than a traditional bathroom scale, even futuristic-looking. Only problems I have with...

If it works, it is great. Accurate and attractive, but it can be a problem to sync. It worked at one of my locations, not the other. The only tech support is thru email. Email? It's way too expensive for what it does IMO. I am a Huge FitBit Fan. I use (and love) my Fitbit one everyday. You can...

The scale is fantastic as well as the online services to go along with it. The only issue I have had was with setup. I didn't have any computers with wifi so I had to borrow someones laptop to do initial setup.

Very simple to use. Step on it once (or more) per day and it does the rest. Coupled with the fitbit profile (and I have the fitbit One) this gives me daily reporting on my activity and fitness progress.
