I was so very HAPPY to get a good scale so that I can keep up with my weight so that I have another piece of help in determining when it's time to get really serious and start exercising. Well, I can't do much with the RA/Fibromyalgia, both knee's have been replaced and they hurt like the dickens lately . I sure do hope that doesn't mean something's gone wrong done there.
The bathroom scale that I got was Ozeri's WeightMaster Digital Bathroom Scale with MICROBAN® Antimicrobial Product Protection . I can't believe how thin it is and how lightweight and easy it is and the really wild thing was that it's so easy to use and I love not having to mess with the needles on the old timey ones. I don't know if you remember those but there would be a little lever on one side of the scale and when the needle didn't line up at the zero you had to use that lever to get it back on the zero or the weight would be wrong.
So, no more needles to wiggle around and it has a nice blue glow to it when you step up on the scale while it goes thru the numbers. See the nice blue color below? That is what lights up when you step on it.
This scale had the Microban Technology and I am I just learned that it is a new technology to help eliminate odor causing bacteria and stain causing bacteria. It also helps keep the scale looking clean because of the Microban Technology. And the best part is it is suppose to last a lifetime! I thought wow, they have really found something special and it will last a lifetime.
And then here is another shocker that I thought was pretty awesome was that this thin piece of equipment can weigh up to 440 pounds! Now, that is a lot of power for one tiny, thin piece of technology.
Here is what it can do:
**Measure's Body Fat
**Measure's Muscle Mass
**Measure's Bone Density
**Will Flash an "Err" message when it's reached it's weight capacity.
It uses something called Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis Technology. And no, I have no idea what that means. I can talk plain and simple but throw them big words at me, and I am like, really?
I can tell you that these are the main things that this Ozeri WeightMaster can do:
- Industry exclusive scale features Microban® antimicrobial product protection that helps prevent the growth of stain and odor-causing bacteria.
- Features the industry's largest blue-backlit LCD with xBright technology for easy-to-read results from afar.
- Ultra sturdy scale combines ABS slip-resistant material on the outside with 6mm impact-resistant tempered glass on the inside.
- Step-on Activation captures the precise weight measurements upon stepping on the scale (no tapping required).
- Auto-calibrated and automatically turns off to conserve battery life. Runs on 2 AAA batteries with a Low Battery Indicator (batteries included).
Oh, I can tell you that it's best to have this scale on a flat surface, do not put on carpet. They also recommend that you do not store it on the scale's side. Please leave it laying flat on the even floor.
Of course, I would not have done this last one anyway, but it is interesting how awesome technology can be but if abused, can change the way it works. They recommend that you do not store the scale in the same place that you store chemicals. Evidently, vapors from the household products may affect the electronic parts of your scale.
Now, would you have thought of that? Not, me. But, I guess I have a little bit of sense because I wouldn't have done that anyway. If you are going to have an awesome scale to help in the process of losing weight and you do it on a regular basis, why would you store it anywhere? I keep mine on the floor in the bathroom, right where I can see it and step on it at any given time.
So, a lot of this is common sense but I can see where a company has to list all these things because unfortunately, they must have had some of these things happen, so it's better to warn us about it and be covered than to not and lose a customer or have a problem. I am an information junkie and so I go out of my way to read directions and things like this because I want to get the most out of anything I buy, regardless of what it is.
I love my bathroom scale because I love the lightweight, thin and very precise way it calculates my weight progress. I love that it is digital and that the numbers come out crystal clear and there is no doubt what my weight is. I remember long time ago when I had the ones with the little arrows, like our clocks, and it always seemed to get stuck after a certain amount of time passes. Then you had to keep adjusting it back to zero and I was never really sure what my weight was. But, with the Ozeri WeightMaster, I don't have to worry about that anymore!
And remember, Ozeri actually sells a lot more than just bathroom scales, they have kitchen scales, salt & pepper mills, thermo glassware, all kinds of wine openers, several kinds of pedometers for when you are walking or running and they even have Tungsten Carbide rings! You can even use them for wedding rings. Go check them out sometime and see all the fascinating products for yourself!
