Being someone that always needs to keep their weight in check, a set of bathroom scales is important to me. The Ozeri WeightMaster come in black or white options and I opted to try out the white ones to see how they performed.
The scales look quite sleek and modern with a glass panel inset in the centre. The white is actually lightly ribbed, which you can’t really tell from the picture, but this gives it a non slip texture and is also coated in Microban for antibacterial protection. The scales will weigh upto a maximum of 200kg or 440lbs. You can switch the measurements from lbs to kg quite simply using the unit button underneath the scales. This is my only slight gripe with the scales in that I am used to looking at stones and lbs, and being all in lbs was quite confusing for me to know what I weighed but you soon get used to it.
Now comes the rather exciting bits about these scales. You can program in upto 8 peoples details, enough for your whole family so that each time you stand on the scales, they instantly recognise you! Once you have added your height to a profile number, the scales can then caculate your BMI when you stand on them. As well as that, they are very clever in that they change colour each time you weigh yourself to show whether you’ve gone up or down from the previous time you weighed. So where you see the blue screen in the picture above, this will turn red if your weight has increased, or turn green if your weight has increased.
I think this is an added motivational tool to help you think about what you are eating. I certainly wouldn’t want the scales turning red each time I stepped on them! It also makes it easy to see and you don’t have to remember exactly what you were the last time, an added benefit.
The Ozeri WeightMaster scales really are as simple as that! Easy to use, accurate weighing, auto recognition of individuals and colour alert technology – what more could you want? They also seem very sturdy and well made, so perfect for the family bathroom!
