Fitbit Aria Wifi Scale does not only measures your weight, but also the ratio of muscle and fat, and transfers all the data to the base in your Fitbit Web account, in which is, of course, desirable and even advised to intake some additional informations that can be measured by some of the “Fitbit fitness tracker” devices and also informations on the ingredients that you entered during the day. Much has been automated, so that the input of those additional informations is very short.
Maximum measurement is up to 159 pounds, which means that it measures more than traditional scales. Fitbit Aria is powered by four AA Dimensions “devices” are 310 x 310 x 33 millimeters, while the weight of a little less than two kilograms batteries. The upper surface is made of smooth glass, which again seems very robust and durable, and it is very easy to maintain.
When you first start, you will need to connect to your home Wi-Fi, and then enter their initials, gender, age, height to each of the users, connect these informations with its base on the Fitbit Web account. You can also install the appropriate application on the iDevices or any Android device, be it a phone or tablet. Fitbit devices are not directly compatible with Apple HealthKit application that is built into all iOS devices, but the data from the tracker or digital scales as it Aria, can be inserted into the iOS app Sync solver, which can forward these informations to Health app on the iDevice.
The device has a large and clear display, and setting of data is quick and easy. The measurement is performed on a hard, flat surface, and the user is to be weighted by standing barefoot on the device, so that the device can measure the fat- muscles ratio more precisely. When the measurement is complete, the smart scale will automatically upload the latest measurements data in the database, and will inform you when the upload has finished. Even if you find yourself out of Wi-Fi range, or it happens that the internet is not working, the smart scale will memorize the last measurements and store them in the database when the connection is achieved.
Body weight has long ceased to be valid for the relevant information, and Fitbit Aria precisely measures the so-called body mass index (BMI). These data are obtained by measuring the impedance or resistance, so that the current of low power and voltage is sent through one leg, then the device measures the difference of power and the voltage (that passes through the body) on the other leg. This method is not very accurate, but is consistent – and you will easily track changes even if the results are up to 10 % different than the ones you get on the scale of another manufacturer.
Fitbit Aria is a useful device, which costs the same as a smartphone, but it is an interesting addition for those who would like to follow the changes in their body weight, as well as the ratio of muscle and adipose tissue during the period. This device will certainly be interesting and useful to use if you already have a Fitbit device, because the information in the Web-based to be more complete.
