Ozeri products review: Rev Digital Bathroom Scales

During the first two trimesters of my pregnancy I was obsessed with weighing myself. I thought I knew if I'm putting weight or not gaining anything at all. At one of the routine appointments with my consultant I was "pleasantly" surprised to find out that all this time my bathroom scales were broken as the weight shown on doctor's scales was completely different to what my scales showed. 
So when Ozeri representative offered to review scales I thought that it is a great opportunity to finally have a working set of scales as I plan to start healthy eating for my 30th (hopefully I will stick to that plan).

Ozeri Rev Digital Bathroom Scales (£19.99) combine a modern and classic look of traditional dial scales with the benefits of a digital display.

One of the things I like the most about using the scales is the electro-mechanical dial and LCD display that automatically lights up with a clear and easy to read display. It promptly gives your weight in lbs or kg, which is both a positive and negative thing.
Both my husband and I have tried Ozeri scales, I was happy with reading in kg whereas he thought that the scales should have a reading for stones, without that function, he is constantly having to calculate the weight in stones. 
On the flip side, the dial is large (at 14 cm) and is perfectly positioned on the scales. I love the chrome surround around the scales dial, it gives the scales a retro/sleek look, which in turn would be a super addition in a modern bathroom.
The scales can weigh up to 180 kg (400 lbs) and it will calibrate itself automatically and also automatically turns off to conserve battery life. It runs on 3 AAA batteries which are included and has a low battery indicator so you won't be caught out.

One interesting feature which I might use in the feature is a 24 hours alarm setting. 
The alarm beeps at the same time every day, the timing is calculated from the last time you weighed yourself.

We have tested the scales over a period of few weeks- few times a day, at the same time every day, on a full stomach or before the breakfast or before and after our evening walks and the readings were always similar to original ones which concludes that scales perform with accurate reading.

  1. This looks like a really good, long lasting set of scales. Thanks for linking up with #TriedTested

  2. I would feel frustrated by not being able to see it instantly in stones too. They are attractive though!
