those reviews for the aria's seller are sketchy (these are some of the most recent):
I love it , the weight is dead on, BMI . . . baseline will be off, but it seems to be relatively accurate.

What i mean by that is, it's initial reading of BMI might be a small percentage off, but when you gain or loose weight it seems to track the updated BMI well. So there will be a baseline shift that is unknown.

Sent me a defective Fitbit Scale. It didn't connect to WIFI.
I purchased a Fitbit scale, and it was a defective unit. It looks like this seller has a history of sending out "refurbished" units that have not been repaired. If you want to buy a broken unit, use this seller. I wish I had not waisted my time... Newegg should remove this seller.

Fitbit Aria scale broken on arrival
I bought a refurbished Fitbit Aria from this company and upon receiving the scale it would not give a reading of my weight and gave me an error code. When I looked up the error code it said that it was a defective sensor. It also had a wi-fi network still setup with it, so it was not even reset to factory settings.

When I requested a refund I had to ship it back to them at the cost of $25 when I only paid $54 to begin with. I wanted a replacement because the price had gone up $10 and it was too difficult to work out, so I am just going to buy it from another vendor on another site other than newegg.com.

I think I'll steer clear of Newegg Marketplace purchases in the future. Maybe even Newegg all together since I have to pay for shipping back to them where their are other vendors that don't do that. At the very least Newegg could pay for shipping through their account (because they probably would get a discount) and charge you for it.

"Refurbished" item didn't seem to have actually been refurbished
I bought a refurbished wifi scale. The item arrived well packaged and appeared to have been refurbished but upon turning it on I found that it was still configured to connect with the previous owner's wifi. Unsurprisingly, the item never worked, even after properly configuring the wifi settings.

Unresponsive.
Didn't cancel it as requested 5 minutes after placing order. Still shipped it three days after cancellation.

I have a Pebble Time, rather than a Fitbit. Anyone used this with a different smartwatch want to weigh in on how well it worked?

I bought one from this seller during the last deal. The scale stopped working after about 2 weeks. I opened an RMA request but they just refunded the money without me shipping it back. I guess they didn't want to pay the shipping on the heavy item. I think they know that many of this are duds. I also contacted FitBit who told me that these are not covered by their warranty. I ended up buying a new scale from Amazon and I like it very much, but you've got a 50/50 shot of getting a working one from this seller.

Damn, I just bought a new one last week for $100. Great scale. Wish FitBit weren't a$$holes about their API working with other services.

The FitBit app will not pull in data from non-fitbit applications because they want to force you into their ecosystem. However, with some clever programming, you can import data. I use this to pull my stepcount from google fit into fitbit: http://googlefeedbit.habite.la/#

Yes. It is only 802.11b, which means you have to run modern routers in mixed mode which slows them down a bit.
