Fitbit revamps its smart scale with Aria 2, promising better accuracy

And a much easier setup process
Fitbit announces Aria 2

Fitbit has announced the Aria 2 smart scale, its first update to the Aria that launched all the way back in 2010.

Like the first model, the Aria 2 once again measures weight, BMI, lean mass and fat percentages, however Fitbit has reworked the tech and tweaked its algorithms, boasting that its accuracy is now above any of the competition. It's also an FDA-approved medical device.

The Aria 2 also now comes with a sleeker, slimmer design with a display that Fitbit promises will be easier to read.

The Bluetooth setup process is now more straightforward too, says Fitbit, as you'll be able to pair the Aria 2 as you would any other Fitbit tracker in the app. Again, it will be able to recognize up to eight different users, so you needn't worry about inadvertently sharing your post-Christmas weight gain with anyone else.

All of your information will instead feed into your app where you'll see it in the context of all your activity and sleep data, and set weight-loss goals should you wish. Fitbit's new smart scale will be going up against the Nokia Body smart scale, which tracks the same metrics but exists in a separate ecosystem.

The new Fitbit Aria 2 will be available worldwide this October at $129.95, and is available for pre-order now.
