Ozeri WeightMaster Digital Scales

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.

ozeriThe 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.

ozeri 2Now 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!

Ozeri 3D Pedometer – Review

Ozeri produce a wide range of household products from kitchenware to fitness gadgets so when I was sent a Ozeri Pedometer to try I knew it’d fit in perfectly with the healthy lifestyle that I’m currently trying to attain.

Ozeri PedometerThe Ozeri pedometer records steps, distance, calories and time and works using your own stride, something you have to programme in at the start along with current date/time/your weight etc.  This helps it to give accurate feedback on your progress throughout your day.

Having only used basic pedometer’s in the past, I could immediately see the benefits of the Ozeri.  One of the biggest bonuses for me was the 3D Tri-Axis motion sensor, meaning that no matter where you have the pedometer or what way up it is, it still manages to accurately record your steps.  It makes it so easy to slip into your pocket and go about day to day life.  Also I love the way that it waits until you have done 13 steps before adding them on, unlike the basic ones that increased steps everytime you jiggle about in your chair.

A feature I like is that it resets itself back to zero at midnight so you can get up the next morning knowing that you are starting a new day, although the great thing is your previous days are stored to give you a 7 day total.

I was a bit shocked the first few days I tried the Ozeri pedometer, in that I was only achieving just over 6000 steps, although to be fair I wasn’t doing any particular walking or exercise on those days.  It has made me more conscious to make an effort to try and achieve over 10,000 steps each day.  I still find this a little hard on the days I work, but it gives me an excuse to get up and take a walk around the office!

Ozeri pedometerThe Ozeri pedometer comes in a nice slim design with easy to press buttons, and being bright yellow means it’s easy to find when you put it down.  Once set up, you can just use it to track your steps each day and a simple press of a button shows you your calories and distance.  Having the time and date on the front was an added bonus and a feature I found useful.

The pedometer comes with an optional attachment to allow you to wear around your neck and also a very handy little screwdriver to open the battery compartment.  There is also a backlight for night viewing which can be useful.

Overall I think the Ozeri is an excellent pedometer, perfect for anyone wanted to keep track of their steps throughout the day.  It works well, gives accurate results, is a compact design and is packed with features allowing you to track your daily movements.
