Way back in January, I made a commitment to myself to eat healthier and workout regularly. As my 40th birthday is creeping upon me this year, I am realizing more and more just how important it is to take care of myself so that I will continue to stay healthy as I age. I used to be one of those people that dreaded looking at a scale let alone weigh myself regularly. All of that changed this year when I made this promise to myself, and I have now gotten into the habit of weighing myself at least weekly to monitor my progress and keep myself accountable.
Most people – myself included – tend to keep their scales in their bathrooms. I keep mine next to my sink as a constant reminder to keep a watch on my weight and to measure my progress. One thing I was surprised to learn is that bacteria on a typical bathroom scale can double in number in as little as 20 minutes with frequent skin contact and exposure to moisture. So unless you are wiping down your typical bathroom scale rather frequently, chances are bacteria are lingering on its surface, where you are exposed each time you step on it. How gross!
I was thrilled for the opportunity to review the Ozeri WeightMaster Digital Bathroom Scale, with MICROBAN® Antimicrobial Product Protection built right into the scale’s surface. Unlike other non protected scales, the Ozeri WeightMaster Bath Scale’s Microban protection begins to work immediately, disrupting key bacterial cell functions while inhibiting the growth and reproduction of bacteria on its surface. What does this mean to me? A cleaner, bacteria free scale means less worry about stinky feet, odor and germs lingering behind.
The scale’s sleek, thin, lightweight design makes transferring the scale easy and convenient. It comes with 2 AAA batteries allowing for you to use it right from the package. When you step on to the scale, you get an instant reading – no tapping or stepping off and on needed. The surface has a smooth yet slip resistant surface, which is especially important with the possibility of droplets of water landing on or near the scale, especially so close to my sink in the bathroom. The large blue-backlit LCD makes reading your weight easy – even in the dark! You can be assured of accuracy with each measurement as the Ozeri WeightMaster uses four of the latest generation G sensors to accurately capture weights in increments of 0.2 pounds or 0.1 kilograms. Once you step off of the scale, the scale turns off automatically while conserving the battery life. Best of all, the Ozeri scale comes with a full warranty and satisfaction guarantee, so if you are not satisified, simply contact Ozeri’s support team for assistance. How awesome is that? Yep – just one more reason to love this scale!
