How many people can use the Fitbit Aria 2?
Best answer: The Fitbit Aria 2 can support up to eight users. And there's no need to tell it who is using it at the weigh-in. If you need a scale that supports more than eight, check out the Eufy BodySense (opens in new tab), which supports 20.Fitbit: Fitbit Aria 2 (opens in new tab) ($130)
Your whole family can use the Fitbit Aria 2
Yes, the Fitbit Aria 2 supports up to eight separate users. All each person has to do is initially sync their Fitbit app with the scale, and then it will automatically recognize everyone when they step on, regardless of whether or not their phone is in the room. That's the beauty of Wi-Fi syncing.
Individual results, automatically
The Fitbit Aria 2's best feature is its seamless Wi-Fi syncing. While other scales require you to have their respective apps open at the weigh-in, the Aria 2 makes it easy for a busy family to all hop on the scale and have their personal data sent to their personal Fitbit accounts.
The Aria 2 keeps your weight data private so that none of the other users can see it. The personalization doesn't stop there, though. You'll see personalized face icons and greetings when you step on the scale, and you'll see all of your own data displayed on the Aria 2 every time you step on.
How does the Fitbit Aria 2 know who is on the scale?
Everyone who uses the Fitbit Aria 2 (if they want to see detailed information) will need to create a Fitbit account and sync it up with the Aria 2 the first time they weigh in. The Aria 2 then recognizes each individual based on weight — it displays the weight and then displays the inttials of the user.
If there are two or more people who are close in weight, then double-check the initials. If they're not correct, tap the Aria 2 until the correct initials are displayed and then it will sync properly with your personal Fitbit account.
Is eight not enough?
If you don't share the same views as Dick Van Patten, then you'll have to look to other smart scales that support more users. For the price, accuracy, and support for up to 20 users, check out the Eufy BodySense Smart Scale (opens in new tab).
It's only $40, and it tells you even more about your weight than the Fitbit Aria 2, measuring your bone mass, muscle mass, and more.
The best scale for Fitbit users, hands-down.
If you and your family use Fitbit fitness trackers, then there's no better scale than the Fitbit Aria 2. It builds upon its predecessor with improved accuracy, easier Bluetooth setup, and it can support up to eight users, discerning between them automatically.
