Fitbit Aria Review


Wi-Fi is being put in everything in our homes. From appliances like washers & dryers and refrigerators, to home electronics like television sets, there’s no arguing that we’re increasingly seeing companies giving a smart option to all our consumers electronics goods. Well folks, it’s now coming to that friend/enemy of ours, the bathroom weight scale – courtesy of Fitbit, the company behind several outstanding fitness trackers. In complementing its lineup, the Fitbit Aria is giving that old scale a huge upgrade.

The package contains:

  • 4 standard AA batteries
  • Owner’s manual


If we didn’t know it, this is arguably one of the best designed weight scales.

Sophisticated isn’t something we tend to associate with a bathroom scale, but that’s exactly the word that best describes the design of the Fitbit Aria. For something that’s meant to measure our weight, it’s unbelievable that Fibit puts a lot of emphasis to its design – one that’s rich with high quality materials and a solid construction from head-to-toe. Yes, it’s undeniable that it’s more weighty than your traditional scale, but it helps to supplement its stunning appearance.

The top surface of the Aria is comprised out of this solid piece of tempered glass, one that’s highly reflective and prone to smudges, but when it’s clean, it absolutely oozes with a stunning glow. Towards the top, there’s a silver metal ring that surrounds the backlit LED display. The glow isn’t weak, nor is it overpowering, but it’s iridescent enough to visibly make out under bright light.

Wait... 1) Is this a phone? No. 2) Is that thing a tablet? No. 3) AT LEAST LAPTOP? Nope. Then why the hell are you reviewing this.

I know this comment was made a long time ago, but don't you think because it is an technology accessory and associated with an app used on smart phones, that it isn't so far out of the box for these guys to create a review for it? Seems to me when people are given a chance to make comments online, they are typically making comments that are negative and do not help anyone in the given situation. That's just my take. To spend the time to just stir the pot seems weird and unproductive.
