Now that the weather is warm (and it's just February) the thoughts of wearing shorts and tank tops are already in my mind. I've done pretty good this winter but have gained more than I was in the summer.
It's because in the winter we Michiganders - yes, that's what we're called - tend to hibernate and stay indoors. The pounds do tend to creep up over time. I'm so happy spring is on the way!.
To help me keep track of my weight I recently received an Ozeri Rev Digital Bathroom Scale with Electro-Mechanical Weight Dial. First of all, I have reviewed many Ozeri products in the past and they always package their items very securely and safely with lots of care. This means a lot to me when I order something and get it in great condition.
From the manufacturer:
This bathroom scale is a very sleek looking scale, with a black glass top which really looks attractive and modern. After reading the directions, I found out that you should keep the scale out of a humid area and in a dry location. This is to keep from the possibility of a malfunction or getting an inaccurate measurement. I have a hallway next to one of my bathrooms and keep it under a stand which works well for me.
Of course with any scale, I never weigh myself on a carpet, which will make you get an incorrect reading. It's recommended to weigh yourself on a hard and flat floor to get the most accurate measurement.
Included with the beautiful looking scale is 3 AAA batteries, which are easily inserted into the bottom of the scale. After inserting the batteries the scale activates and the LCD screen lights up for a few second and then it turns off. After that you are ready to weigh yourself.
Normally I weigh myself in the morning before breakfast, and with my pj's on. Since it was afternoon when I weighed myself, I weighed a few pounds more, which was normal. I just had a doctor's visit and the scale showed just about the same amount as the Ozeri Rev Digital Scale did.
The scale also includes a mechanical dial, which you can see in the picture above. I would say that it matches the lit up number pretty closely, which is neat to see. I didn't have any problem viewing the LCD light or the mechanical version.
Something that I've never seen with a bathroom scale in the past is the option to have a the daily reminder alarm.This way you can weigh yourself at the same time each day. You can activate this by pressing the button "24H/Alarm" located under the scale.
Besides calculating your weight in pounds the scale also has the ability to calculate in kilograms. To do this you can change it by using the "Unit" button, which is also located underneath the scale. For any other questions or how to operate the scale, you get a user manual, which is very easy to understand.
I've only had the Ozeri Rev Digital Bathroom Scale with Electro-Mechanical Weight Dial for a few days but am pleased with how it has worked so far.
If you are interested in one for yourself, they can be found on Amazon.
