Fitbit Aria: Wireless / WiFi weight scale with companion iPhone app

With a short but impactful history of innovations in the personal activity tracking device space, perhaps it was inevitable that Fitbit would join Withings in the connected weight scale market.

Wireless, sleek and very connected (to Fitbit’s website, mobile app and third-party apps/services), the Fitbit Aria wireless weight scale offers a viable alternative against the Withings Body scale that is plugged into the Fitbit ecosystem.

The Fitbit Aria scale differentiates by fitting (no pun intended) right into the growing Fitbit ecosystem of devices and services designed to unify your activity, sleep, weight and nutrition metrics. Combined with a Fitbit activity tracking device, the Fitbit Aria scale syncs data to the same health portal and mobile app, along with a food journal, to give you tightly integrated visibility into your body’s progress.
