Did you know Fitbit makes a scale? And it just dropped to $40 at Amazon — today only

If your New Year’s resolution involved getting in shape, keeping track of your progress is key. But these days you don’t need to keep a log book; plenty of devices will do it for you automatically, and Fitbit makes some of the best.

You’re probably familiar with the company’s wearable fitness trackers, but did you know there’s also a Fitbit scale? And it’s super easy to use. What makes their Aria Air even better is the current discounted price —now an affordable $40, which is $10 off of its usual price.

The Aria Air measures your weight and BMI (body mass index), sending it directly to the Fitbit app so you can look at all sorts of great graphs and metrics to see how you’re really doing. After all, it’s not about a single number, but about how all your numbers shift over time. As any Fitbit users know, the brand as a whole is great at encouraging better health habits. I’ve owned an Aria scale for a decade now, and I've loved being able to track my progress over the years, from the junk food–filled holiday season to the constant go-go-go of my summers.

I'm not alone in my love for the Aria line. The Air has garnered over 11,000 five-star ratings on Amazon, like this shopper who says, "I love how easy it is to use.... There is no writing weight down in a journal or trying to guess or remember. It takes the ease out of trying to lose weight and has kept me motivated and on track!"

This person agrees: "Very easy to sync to my Fitbit app, so I don’t have to manually enter my daily weigh-in. I love that you don’t have to turn it on. Just step on, weight displays, and it shuts off on its own."

And this customer likes that "it does exactly as it needs to do. It's been accurate for my husband and me. Doesn't do anything fancy besides put my weight into my Fitbit app, which is perfect."
