I used my GoogleFu and discovered that the scale is available in a lot of countries, but not the US of A or Canada. The closest thing to the TargetScale that you can get from Amazon seems to be the Withings WS-50

Something like this will do the job just fine. I personally use a Withings scale that is an investment but the app makes it worth it in my opinion.

EDIT: I should wear stronger glasses.

I've done some research on this because I was in the market for one myself, so I'll share what I've concluded:

  1. The only other scale that I've found that gets better reviews than the Aria (in terms of smart scales and syncing with the FitBit) is the Withings WS-50. I have heard that generally the Withings is better but comes at a higher price point, but coincidentally, leading to my next point:

  2. The Withings is coincidentally at one of its lowest historical price points as of 12:00PM CST. Proof here. I just happened to see this and might have to consider purchasing one today.

  3. In general, smart-scales are pretty inaccurate for everything other than weight, and even then, some other scales are better in terms of accuracy. The "dumb scales" can give you more precise and accurate weight measurements. But, if the body-fat measurements (although inaccurate) encourage you to lose more weight, then the $80+ more that it costs might actually be worth it.

  4. In the end we are just trying to become more fit, and the hardest part of that goal is the motivation/discipline aspect. What a piece of technology does for someone is different for everyone, so if you like the Aria, keep it (or refund then buy the Withings). If not, refund it and get a more accurate scale and just log-in the weight manually.

    My general rule of thumb nowadays is that a price-premium is worth paying for if it keeps you motivated/disciplined to keep fit, since you can't put a price on health.

    TL;DR: It's really up to you and how the Aria affects your fitness journey

I have the Withings scale, I like it because of the convenience, sends my weight to the cloud and then its available on the Withings website or app.
Regarding the body fat %, I have read all the reviews about this method being terribly inaccurate, but I find it quite accurate, or at the least very consistent. I don't find wild fluctuations in the percent measurements. Currently mine says 19.4%, from looking in the mirror and comparing to the examples found on the FAQ, that seems about right to me. Also, using the US Navy calculator I get ~19.5%, using another measurement calculator with more measurement sites I get ~19.3%.
So in the end, it appears accurate enough for me and is very consistent with other common methods, it also passes the face validity test - I look like I am around 20% body fat.

God I hope not. How creepy. It's this one.

Withings has been acquired by Nokia. They still make the same scale, it is just branded differently. This is what I've had for five (?) years. It is awesome. Smoothes out your weight graph in the app and is able to show long-term trends. A bit on the expensive side, but highly recommended.

u/tenaku · 2 pointsr/loseit

I really like having a connected scale. It drops my weight data right into a smartphone app so I can see trends, without worrying about manual recording. Anything that simplifies the process makes it more likely I'll do it.

Oh excellent! Thank you for letting me know :)

edit: Is it this one?

u/reserved1012 · 1 pointr/fitbit

Hey I was just trying to order this scale of but its not giving me a buy option to ship to Canada although its mentioning a direct import fee (which I haven't seen before). Does this mean I am simply unable to order it? You may not know the answer to this but I thought you may be full of surprises.

Probably just means I can't order this as its just cannibalizing their own sales of electronics. Not sure why the import fee is mentioned though.

However Amazon doesn't even sell it on the Canada side, only through resellers. Look at this price too!

May have to stick with the aria at this price unless i can solve the shipping.

I actually weigh myself every day. I weigh myself in the morning to help normalize the numbers and reduce the amount of variable weight like any water or food I've ingested. I splurged and bought myself a Withings Wifi scale. Now I just step on the scale and I let it do all my tracking for me. It's one less number I have to carry around in my head and I really like the charting. Since I've started keto my trend line has been declining steadily. Focusing on the trend line keeps me from focusing on all my day-to-day weight fluctuations.

u/Mr_Nox · 1 pointr/90daysgoal

It's a Withings WS-50 WiFi scale, which automatically syncs your weight, body fat %, pulse, etc. to your Internet accounts (e.g. MFP).

u/spectre323 · 1 pointr/Fitness

I have the Withings scale and weigh myself every Friday morning after I shower. I wake up, drink a little water, and then shower.

u/cutestofborg · 1 pointr/loseit

I have a Withings scale. I think it's similar to this model but I can't be sure as I've had it for years now.

I know that a few other companies also make scales that sync wirelessly, I think maybe the Fitbit people do one? It might be worth looking around before investing a chunk of money into one, as they don't come cheap.

I can say that I like my scale, it's consistent and reliable and has survived two cross-country moves. It tells you if you're not centered on the scale so that helps with more consistent readings than any other scale I've used. I can access the weight graph from my browser on my laptop or an app on my phone, and you can make profiles for different users if you need to. I don't use any of their other products, just the scale.

Right now I use a digit weight watchers scale but I really want this one. PS I HATE having my period, weighed myself this morning and I'm so bloated I'm only down .6 since yesterday when I was so bloated I was (TMI) gassy all day.

I have the Withings Smart Body Analyzer. It looks like they've changed their product line-up a little, and they have a couple of newer scales.
