Fitbit aria helps you know where you stand and get where you want to be with your weight goals. Aria is a high performance scale, tracking weight, body mass index (BMI) and % body fat over time. After easy, wireless set-up, your Fitbit aria scale taps into your home wireless network and uploads your information automatically to fitbit.com each time you step on the scale. Automatically recognizes up to 8 different people in your home, sending their info to separate accounts at fitbit.com. At fitbit.com you’ll get a complete weight management system to help you set weight goals, keep on track and achieve your targets. On your computer or smartphone, you can view charts and graphs of your weight trends over time to keep you on track. To keep you motivated, fitbit.com lets you set goals and earn badges, and then connect with friends and share that information as you see fit. You can also log food and activities, then use Fitbit’s food plan tool to guide you to how many calories you can eat and still meet your weight goals. And when combined with the Fitbit wireless activity sleep tracker, you’ll really get a 360-degree view of your health and fitness, making you more aware of your daily activities and encouraging you to make small changes that can add up to big results.
Move it up: Since blood increases further up your arm, wear your tracker higher on your wrist to improve the heart rate signal during workouts. Start by moving the device up to three finger widths above your wrist bone, then experiment with slightly lower placement. Keep it secure: The less your tracker moves during exercise, the more chance you have of maintaining a heart rate signal throughout the activity. Do not wear the band too tightly, as this can restrict blood flow and goes against our wear and care guidelines. Hold steady for ten seconds: High intensity exercises or activities that cause you to keep your wrist bent (like push-ups) or move your arms vigorously (like dance) may interfere with heart rate signals. If you stop seeing a signal during these types of activities, hold your wrist steady for ten seconds during breaks to get your reading.
Environmental Requirements: You will get the most reliable readings on a hard surface (not carpet). Operating Temperature: 41° to 104° F. Relative humidity: 0-95%

This is all you'll see on this scale after a year or two (or less!). If it happens to be more than 1 year after you bought it, tough luck, Fitbit's answer is "unfortunately your scale is broken and there's nothing we can do about it". THOUSANDS of consumers are having this issue, it is all over the Fitbit troubleshooting boards, and yet Fitbit offers no fix. This scale works for a few months, maybe you'll get 2 years out of it if you're lucky. After that, it bricks and it's nothing more than a very expensive paperweight.
Decided to contact Fitbit in search of any suggestions. Big waste of time! I only wanted some help getting it to work properly and the agent brushed me off the call. I guess they dont like talking to anyone out of warranty? It was a nice scale while it lasted, but now its an expensive paperweight.
TO POTENTIAL BUYERS:
If you are okay paying for something that will no longer work as intended 2 years down the road then this isnt a bad option at all. Customer service is only good within warranty (1 year across the board). I would suggest saving money and getting a cheaper digital scale, or another branded wifi scale. Just look into their company first and see how they are customer service wise before handing them $100+
No issues with Amazon as the seller, they are up to par on all aspects, this is just about Fitbit as a company and the Aria scale.
Do not waste your hard earned money or time. Good luck.
The support team can only say that my scale is out of warranty and they offer me a premium membership free for my trouble. No one can repair the scale. This scale is an overpriced paperweight and do not recommend that anyone purchase it.
I have ordered the Weight Gurus for half the price of the Aria scale. It provides more measurements, will sync with the fitbit app, and most important, offers a 5-year warranty. It is highly rated here on Amazon.
The first time I opened the scale and set it up it took over an hour. I finally got it to work and it felt the need to add 5 pounds to my weight after it recognized my already active account. Kinda messed up, Fitbit.
I've had my Aria for over a year. When I weighed myself once a week or so, everything was fine, but once I got busier and only did it once a month or so, I gave up. Every time I got back on it would recognize me AND THE WIFI, but wouldn't sync with my dashboard. After showing my information it would show the progress bar, then a wifi icon with an "x" over it. I have to re-connect to the god forsaken wifi through the stupid scale EVERY TIME I WANT TO WEIGH MYSELF. I could live with this if it didn't take hours of "WIFI ERR" messages even though I've used this SAME NETWORK A HUNDRED TIMES BEFORE.
The scale isn't accurate, it preys on users by adding weight, and it craps the bed every time I try to use it. Clearly there is something wrong with it and I no longer have the time and energy to force my way through. Even if you do get it to work, it won't be consistent (same place day after day within 10ft of the router? Nah, Aria just isn't feeling it today). Don't waste your time.

I don't know whether we just got a bad one, I never expected any accuracy from the body fat measurement (the method used is no more than a guess) but for the money I was expecting accurate scales. I would love to know how anybody else has got on testing them against a known good (calibrated) set of scales?
1. There is always a +/- 2-3 kg variation. But if you step on it only once a day, this does not disturb you. That's what we did after figuring this out.
2. It is a great idea with the fitness bracelet and etc. but this scale never managed to register the right reading with the right person although me and my wife have a weight difference of about 40 kgs and we are the only registered persons.
3. Setting up the scale is a terrible experience and it is the worst user interface you can find on a "smart" scale.
4. After more than two years of use, the scale just stopped working. It is telling us to step off until the batteries are dead.
5. We contacted the customer service only to get the following recommendation: "Throw it in a suitable dump"
So this was our experience...if you want a precise and durable scale, buy one for your nearest supermarket for 15-20 euros and if you need a smart scale, go look somewhere else...
I now have to wonder if part of the problem wasn't my scale. Over the last two weeks I've been back on a new weight loss plan - intermittent fasting - in fact I've been averaging four full 24 hour fasts out of every 7 days. Having studied the science of fasting and see the results that are possible, I was convinced I had cracked it and it looked at first glance like I'd lost 6lbs in a week. Then I weighed in a few days later - a period when I'd been fasting further and in between eating very healthily - and had "put on" 4lbs. I know that with fasting more than other types of diet weight fluctuations can be significant at first as your body adjusts, so I gave it another week. The same thing happened again. I weighed in this morning to see I'd lost 6lbs. But then I gave it a minute and stepped back on the scales only to see that in a matter of seconds I'd put on 5lbs. I tried again a minute later - I'd lost another 1lb from the previous measurement.
In short - these scales are wildly inaccurate, and have without doubt resulted in a number of aborted diets over the last five years. I would say to anyone looking at scales - especially these so-called "smart scales" - look for good reviews about accuracy over the long-term - it doesn't matter how "smart" it says it is, if it can't measure your weight with any predictability / accuracy it is not only useless it will more than likely lead to you failing in your weight management goals.
I'm just annoyed it took me this long to realise - when I bought the scales they had generally decent reviews but I can see over the long term lots of other users have found them to be wildly inaccurate.
It’s such a shame because the software layer of fitbit’s ecosystem is superb, it also draws you to buy multiple devices, and seem extremely well priced based on the functionality. The trouble with any of the devices I’ve bought over the years is the build quality is frankly shameful.
These scales arrived quickly, were simple to setup and like with everything else from Fitbit, looked the part. However, 18 months down the line I made the cardinal sin of replacing the batteries!!!
That’s right, replacing the batteries will cause the device to go into an unrecoverable error state.
The good news is, I was well inside my warranty period and took the delivery of a replacement device - best of all an updated version which professed to resolve the problem next time around when I replaced the batteries...
I’m now a further 2 years and 2 weeks along from my replacement Aria scale... and having replaced the batteries for the first time, discovered my old friend “sensing/step-off/thinking/ERR” lurking at my next weigh-in. Having gone through the “let’s google it”, I contacted Fitbit support again, they confirmed I’m now two weeks out of my warranty period, but they did recommend I carefully dispose of my current unit and purchased a replacement scale... where guess what, they’ve fixed this issue. 😆
Just google this error before you buy this item it’s real and it’s extremely widespread.
It makes you realise how bad this kind of disposable tech is for the environment based on the thousands of people who will have been going through these devices.
Personally as each of my FitBit devices fails... I’m switching to Withings equipment which is a lot better built and still allows you to use the Fitbit app if you want, the Withings one is also very good though.
Your loss FitBit - hopefully Google will sort them out!
