About this app

Shapa is not a diet and exercise program - it's unique platform that pairs a numberless scale with a user-friendly app to motivate you toward healthy lifestyle changes. You'll get a tailored program based on your personality, habits and environment to help you achieve long-term weight management success.

Measure Progress Not Weight:
No more love-hate relationship with your scale. It's normal for weight to fluctuate daily, and the way traditional scales are designed actually hinders your progress.

Get a More Accurate Sense of Your Health:
Instead of seeing your weight, our system uses smart algorithms to tell you your Shapa Color and your Shapa Age, truer metrics of your actual health.

Personalized to You:
Shapa analyzes your unique personality, preferences, environment, habits and lifestyle. As a result, your Shapa apps recommends personalized activities called Missions that are right for YOU.


Shapa Color and Shapa Age: These are better feedback mechanisms to replace seeing your weight. As you progress, you should see your Shapa Color and Shapa Age improve!

Missions: These are small, simple actions that are personalized to you.

Start Over: If the system has found that you haven’t used the Shapa over a certain period of time, you can “reset” your progress.

Vacation Mode: You can pause so as not to affect/disturb your progress over time. But some people in our tests are actually traveling with their Shapa.

Shapa Streak: Every time you step on the Shapa, it tracks your ongoing streak.
Community: Invite people to Shapa, share your progress

Amazon Alexa: Get your Alexa to read out your daily Missions.

Design: Shapa is sleek wood design (in brown, black, wood) so that it looks like it belongs in your living room.

Why Shapa? We all know that weight gain is linked to serious health risks, from heart disease to diabetes. But for most of us, losing weight is an uphill battle. Shapa takes a behavioral science approach that understands the psychology behind why it’s difficult to lose weight.

Developed by leading social scientist Dan Ariely, Shapa guides you to long-term weight management success through achieving healthy milestones in a personalized program. Shapa pairs an innovative device with a user-friendly app to analyze, track, and motivate you. Shapa is not a diet and exercise program - it is a long term health solution.

10/31/20:. Downgrade stars again as the longer we use it the more unreliable it becomes. Both of us have to restart our phones every morning in order for the scale and the app to communicate. 1/3/20: downgrading stars. This is the second time I have had to uninstall/reinstall app because it quite syncing other apps. Very frustration. When it works, it is great. Minimal help from customer support.

I have used my Shapa scale and app daily since September 2018. The Shapa concept is great with seeing a color representation of weight and the "missions" for meeting weight goals. I want to rate this scale high but I just cannot. The app (android) must be manually closed after every use or it will not start the following day. However, the worst part is that I have to remove a battery from the scale to get it to wake up before stepping on it. Worse yet is poor Customer Support. Update- Shapa replaced my first scale and it works much better than my original. I am back to weighing daily with working hardware! Thank you!!

I have used Shapa for about 4 months now. The app does what it says, but it's not practical in practice, so I connected it with Google Fit to get the actual numbers and historical graph. It only takes averages of the last few weigh ins, so if you skipped weighing in, you get an outdated color. Also, if you go up in weight and then stabilize, you go back to green, even though you're heavier than your last green. Without another app, there's no way to know. It's fine, but not worth $10/mo.
