The fitbit aria air review
October 1, 2020
Have you all noticed how electronic devices are getting more and more fancy each year ?It is really astonishing to see how much can be done in just a few clicks when using these smart devices. Things which used to take hours to calculate and put together, can now be done in just seconds! In the fitbit aria air review here, we will take a close look at one of the most decent smart scales on the market .
Dimensions :30X30X2.57 cm
Weight : 1.79 kg
Manufacturer: Fitbit Inc
In fact, this scale has a lot of things to catch the eyes. It has a lot of good attribute and it definitely stands out, even when compared to more expensive and more sophisticated smart bathroom scales :
- It is simple and reliable
Once someone steps on this scale, it measures and displays the weight on its nice and clear screen. This scale also measures the body mass index (BMI) to give the user a complete picture of their health situation. All the measurements are directly sent to the phone and tablet application “Fitbit, where they are explained in more details using simple charts .
- Its set up process with smartphone, is straightforward
The scale comes with a quick start up guide. In just a few minutes the user can take their first measurements. It is so easy and simple. The user’s phone is connected to the scale using Bluetooth connectivity.
- Its application for phones and tablet application is very practical
Its application for phones and tablet application is one my favorite things regarding this scale. It allows the user to see more details regarding their health situation. The scale itself only displays the weight of the user on its screen. All the other important details are accessed through the application. When using the application, the user can track their exercising, set objectives, keep an eye on the eating habits and also measure hydration
How does the Fitbit application work ?
Unlike some smart scales on the market, this scale works with its application. Here is good news about all this, the application “Fitbit” is the same for the Fitbit smart watches and fitness bracelets. Why is this good news ?Because users who have other Fitbit devices, can access all their data in one single place, in the application. I mean data from their fitbit fitness bracelets, smart watch and scale all synchronized in one place. It gives the user a better understanding of their general health situation, without them having to put all the different data, from different devices together by themselves. The fitbit application has also many other cool options like sleep tracking, all that to give the user as much information as possible, in one place and through charts graphs, with relevant trends and more.
Furthermore, the user of the Fitbit application has access to the Fitbit community which include other fitbit members. On that platform,users can interact, motivate each other, so that all the members can reach their fitness goals.It is like one big family .
Members also have an option to become premium subscribers if they want, which gives them access to more personified fitness programs with follow-ups.
Why buy this scale ?
The first reason why someone would buy this scale, is the look.It has one of the best design ever in my opinion.Its design is very creative and yet very simple at the same time and I like it .
The second reason, is the phone and tablet application which is very easy to use and easy to connect .
Lastly, this bathroom scale has a multi-user capacity.A big household can share this scale. Each person just need to log into their fitbit profile if they have one,if not,they can sign up to one for free. The profile is set up by providing the age,gender,height and a few other personal information,nothing crazy personal though ! . It is easy to do and the whole process takes about a minute to do .
What I don’t like about this weighing scale
Although I like this scale,there are some stuff I don’t like about this bathroom scale.The first thing I have against this scale, is the fact that it doesn’t measure body fat percentage.For someone who has weight loss goals, it is absolutely very helpful to know about the body fat percentage.To achieve success in losing weight,it is important to keep or increase the muscle mass and at the same time lose body fat percentage.How can that be done ?Is it easy ?Well ,one thing is sure ,It demands diet discipline and regular exercise .
Body fat percentage is one of the key indicator when someone is losing weight and it is also a good indicator of the health big picture of a person.
Secondly, this scale does not work with apple health nor google health fitness application .
Lastly,there are other scales on the market which cost less than Fitbit Aria air and yet have more features.One example would be the Fitindex body fat scale .
What is my opinion about this bathroom scale ?
Overall, this scale is good and pretty much accurate. It is mostly very efficient on providing, tracking weight setting up weight loss goals and the charts and graphs from the phone application explain everything so well .
However,I also find that it tends to be more digital than smart as it is advertised.Smart scales usually do a lot more than just providing the weight and the body mass index.I don’t blame Fitbit for the Aria air model because they have many other nicer bathroom scales models.Other than fitbit, there are a lot of smart scales on the market.Check out my list of the best smart scales in 2020.
