Ozeri Rev Digital Bathroom Scale: Product Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I received this Ozeri Rev Digital Bathroom Scale promptly after shipment. It was packaged very securely and well padded. The scale was provided with 3 AAA batteries, which is convenient considering our household is always running out of batteries at the most inconvenient times. After removing this scale from the box, I was in awe of how beautiful and classy it is. I am always a fan of white accessories and electronics. The slim profile of the scale is very nice, and the scale is lightweight. I liked the smoothness of the top, and it appears to be easy to wipe clean when needed.

We have had the same boring black matte cheapy scale for about 10 years and it was showing extreme wear and was not pretty in the least bit. Our old bulky scale never was pretty even when new and was heavy to move. The Ozeri scale has a large digital display that is very easy to read with a back light so you can even weigh yourself in the dark. I like the design of this scale, which features a digital reading and a dial reading. The large screen would be good for those with poor eyesight or those who wear corrective lenses. The display automatically turns off to conserve battery life, and stays on for a few seconds after you step off the scale. The dial is electro-mechanical and automatically points to your weight instead of the needle moving back and forth, like on a traditional, non battery operated scale.

I do not have any negative comments about this scale. Here are some features of the scale that are nice attributes, however I do recommend that you take note and added care as they can become small problems if not attended to. You cannot use it in a room that gets very humid or steamy (scale has impact-resistant tempered glass for ideal stability, however take caution when stepping on in a moist area as it is slippery while wet). You do not want to risk getting moisture under the viewing area and potentially damage the scale’s sensors and electronics—it also would look unattractive to have water damage. You cannot use this scale accurately on carpet, not even a low pile rug. (I made this mistake the first day on my low pile rug and wondered why my weight was considerably lower and inaccurate.)

If you like weighing yourself every day, it has a built in alarm that can be activated to remind you it's time to step on it and check your weight. This can be a good thing if you are wanting to be more accurate with weight loss/gain. However, please note that the first night I had this scale, I played around with it pressing buttons and admiring it,and accidentally pressed the 24 hr alarm on the back of the scale. At 4 am the alarm went off loudly. My husband jumped out of bed and asked what alarm was going off. I had no idea what it was so we both got out of bed to investigate. We then realized it was the scale! We made sure to keep the alarm setting off, as we only weigh ourselves once a week in the morning before our showers. For those on strict weight guidelines, this alarm feature is more useful.

I really like this scale and am so happy I was able to review it. I had not heard of this brand, but will now tell others about it who are interested in a top quality, aesthetically pleasing, and accurate scale. I was sent this scale as a product sample in exchange for my honest opinion. I would purchase this on my own in the future for other bathrooms and would definitely recommend this to others.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
