Ozeri is a manufacturer of products for contemporary homes and is an established brand in the USA, presently looking to expand into the UK.
I received a free Ozeri Precision Pro II Digital Bathroom Scale in the post today, via their distributor Moderna Housewares. I had selected this item out of a choice of 4 Ozeri products to review, as my existing bathroom scales urgently need replacing. My digital ones under-report my weight by about half a stone – very complimentary but I want to know my actual weight. Replacing the battery did not resolve this and my older analogue set has lost its pointer, so I have to peer very closely to see what it says.
So I was very pleased to receive the Ozeri Precision Pro II Digital Bathroom Scale. It was well packed and came with an instruction leaflet and 2 AAA batteries ready to insert. As with most bathroom scales, it recommends to use on a hard floor surface and if you move it to another location, it will recalibrate with no intervention required. I was impressed to see it had a blue LCD display making it easy to read your weight – I haven’t seen bathroom scales with this feature. And it is larger than other bathroom scales, which I hope will prove useful in the future, when I attempt to weigh my suitcase before heading to the airport. The scale turns off automatically after about 10 seconds inactivity, conserving battery life. It is a sleek modern design, constructed of impact-resistant tempered glass.
However I was disappointed to see it didn’t have a stones weight option, which is what I am used to using. The default option is pounds, so I assume the product is targetted at the American market, since Ozeri is an established brand in the USA. It does have a button underneath to switch to kilos, but I couldn’t seem to get this to function. So I had to resort to a calculator to divide by 14, to convert to stones.
Its sensors can cope with weights upto 440 pounds, which is over 31 stone.
My young son and I both tested the product several times in quick succession and it gave quite consistent weight readings, which was an issue with my current digital bathroom scales. In my opinion, this is a great product, so long as you’re happy to weigh yourself in pounds.
You can order this Bathroom Scale via Amazon. Currently the price has been reduced from £29.95 to £18.95 so very good value. Buy for yourself or as a gift.
