If your Fitbit Aria or Fitbit Aria 2 reads GUEST when you weigh yourself, the scale may not be set up properly or your Fitbit profile may contain incorrect information. For Fitbit Aria Air, if you saved a guest's weigh-in to your Fitbit account, you can delete the weight log. For more information, see How do I add, edit, or delete Fitbit data and activities?

Aria 2 may assign your weigh-in to a guest when your measurements are similar to another user and the scale is unsure how to assign the weigh-in. When this happens, the scale shows an icon like the one below:

If the user icon shown is yours, tap the right side of the scale with your foot. If the user icon is not yours, tap the left side of the scale. If you do nothing, the weigh-in is assigned to a guest.

How do I check if my scale is linked to my Fitbit account?

  • Fitbit app

    Tap the Today tab User-added image, and tap your profile picture. Under your name, your scale should be listed.

    If your scale isn't shown, it isn't linked to your Fitbit account. Follow the instructions in How do I set up my Fitbit device? to link your scale.

    If your scale is listed as a device, but isn't syncing your weigh-ins, follow the instructions in Why won’t my Fitbit device sync?

    For Aria Air, make sure you have the Fitbit app open on your nearby phone when you complete a weigh-in.

  • fitbit.com dashboard

    From the fitbit.com dashboard, click the gear icon User-added image. Your scale should be listed in the menu.

    If you don't see your scale in the menu, your scale isn't linked to your Fitbit account. Follow the instructions in How do I set up my Fitbit device? to link your scale.

    If your scale is listed as a device, but isn't syncing your weigh-ins, follow the instructions in Why won’t my Fitbit device sync?

How do I check my settings?

If you confirmed that your scale is set up and syncing correctly, there may be an issue with the weight and height information stored in your Fitbit profile. For instructions on how to verify your personal information, choose a section below.

  • Fitbit app
    1. Tap the Today tab User-added image > your profile picture > your name.
    2. Tap Personal Stats and verify that your height and weight are correct.
