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.

The scale works fine, and it's good to get general feedback about whether I am gaining, maintaining, or losing weight without numbers. However, unless you are very new to nutrition, hydration, and exercise, the very basic "program" is not worth the price.

Won't stop weigh in mode. When I close the app and open it again it just shows the Shapa image, no function to click on. I have to keep force stopping it because it stays running in the background. At this point the scale and app are a waste to me. It's frustrating that I spent so much money on something that won't work well for me. Back to my $40 numbered scale :(

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.
