Fitbit Aria Wi-Fi scale ships in black or white
Fitbit has added to its range of connected, health-oriented gadgets such as the Ultra Tracker with the Aria Wi-Fi smart scale. The scale can track the weight, Body Mass Index, and body fat percentage of up to eight users. It automatically uploads this data to an online database users can access through a free account through a website as well as an iOS or Android app.
Users can even tweet their weight if willing to share. The data collected will also take into account that from the Fitbit tracker that users wear. It logs the amount of burned calories, physical activity such as stairs climbed, and the calorie intake, though this needs to be entered manually.
The Fitbit account will motivate users to lose weight by offering badges they can earn for meeting their goals and other milestones.
The Aria scale is priced at $130, while the tracker costs $100. The scale can be had in black or white.
