This Smart Scale Will Help You Lose Weight—And It's $30 Off

The Fitbit Aria smart scale has metrics that can help you lose weight faster—and it's currently on sale.

Lasting weight loss requires much more than knowing the number on your scale. Making healthy lifestyle changes, better food choices, and breaking bad habits are all part of the equation, and many experts say stressing over the number on the dial doesn't even help you keep pounds off in the long run.

Enter smart scales: These high-tech devices reveal much more than how many pounds you're carrying. They show other helpful metrics such as body mass index, body fat percentage, muscle mass, and bone mass. A 2016 University of Manchester study (which was funded partially by scale manufacturer Withings) found that the more often people used their smart scales, the more weight they lost.



Intrigued? Fitbit, the same company that produces some of the best fitness watches on the market, makes a sleek scale that happens to be on sale now on Amazon for $100 (regularly $130). The Fitbit Aria tracks your weight, calculates your BMI, and uses bioimpedance analysis—weak electric currents that flow through your body—to calculate your fat and lean body mass percentages. 
[post_ads]Having those measurements in addition to your weight provides a clearer picture of your overall health than weight alone, and can be useful if your goal isn't necessarily to slim down (like if you're trying to pack on more muscle).

Additionally, the Aria syncs your measurements over wi-fi with the Fitbit fitness app and any Fitbit tracker, providing you with graphs of your progress toward your goals, alongside other data like calories burned, steps taken, and more. 
And, just like the rest of the Fitbit line, the Aria scale boasts a sleek design, backlit LED display, and wireless, continuous syncing. It also features technology that recognizes up to eight users automatically, so everyone in your family can use it. The Aria will know who's stepping on the scale each time.
