If you're not using the Aria in tandem with an Ultra motion tracker, the app can end up feeling a bit empty - there are tabs to input activities, water intake and food consumption, but it's the automation part of the Fitbit equation that we like the most.

Stand on basic bathroom scales and there tends to be a bit of "wobble" between one pound and the next, which makes the result tricky to read sometimes. The Aria doesn’t have this issue and appears to be decisive when recording your weight, but we did find some accuracy issues.

The Fitbit scale is generally easy to setup, but I’ve had problems getting it to connect to my network, usually after changing batteries—once, the scale took more than an hour to work properly. This seems to be a common complaint amongst Aria users.

When it’s all said and done, if floor space isn’t an issue, I’d choose the Fitbit Aria over the Withings scale because it’s $20 cheaper and the data integrates with the rest of my Fitbit data.

Like I said in the outset - not only did I never anticipate the personal need for an activity tracker and certainly not a Wi-Fi scale, but now I couldn't imagine not having them as part of my lifestyle fitness regime.

Absolutely spectacular, automatically logs your weight
This was my second bioelectrical impedance measuring scale. It gives you an estimate of your body fat that is fairly inaccurate, but better than nothing. My first scale did not connect to the internet and I would track my weight manually on a piece of paper (2010-12). I later copied the numbers into my spreadsheet. With this scale, all you have to do is step on it, ideally at the same time of day and in the same condition as previously. I like to weight myself first thing in the morning before I eat or drink anything. I'm able to review my weight and body fat percentage over time in a beautiful graph format, via my iPhone, iPad, or computer. It really helps me monitor and track my weight over time. I also get periodic DXA scans for a more accurate body fat reading, but the two combined are very useful because I do in fact see some correlation on the body fat numbers it provides.
