In addition to the new Versa 2 fitness smartwatch, Fitbit has also introduced Aira Air, a lower-priced smart balance based on Bluetooth, which is cheaper than Aria 2, the company's Wi-Fi scale.
Costs the Aria 2 namely around 130 euros (RRP), so the Aria Air comes for 59.95 euros in the trade. In addition to the weight on the balance display itself, Aria Air also displays the BMI and additional health data in the Fitbit app. This also synchronizes the balance weight measurements via Bluetooth. If the user uses Fitbit fitness trackers, the app will also display data on heart rate, activity, sleep quality and diet. The Aria Air is thus intended primarily as a supplement to other Fitbit products to bring together as much body data in the app. In the app, users can also define weight goals and graphically track their personal decline or increase trend.
No body fat analysis and what happens to several users?
Compared to the more expensive Aria 2, however, the Aria Air can not perform a measurement of the body fat percentage. How the Fitbit Aria Air handles the use of several people, is not yet clarified. While the Wi-Fi scale Aria 2 automatically recognizes up to 8 people and assigns the data to the corresponding profiles, Fitbit has not commented on this in the run-up to the announcement by Aria Air. It is therefore quite conceivable that initially all measurements of the scale are transmitted independently of the user in the Fitbit app and the user himself then does not have to sort out his associated measurements. However, ComputerBase is still in contact with Fitbit to finally clarify this point.
