I have loved working with Ozeri on a variety of reviews in the past including:

- 8″ Ozeri Green Earth Textured Ceramic Pan,
- Ozeri Blood Pressure Monitor
- Ozeri INSTAVAC Green Earth Food Storage Container Set
- Ozeri 360 Oscillation Tower Fan
This time they offered me a chance to review the Ozeri WeightMaster II 440 lbs Digital Bath Scale with BMI and Weight Differential Detection (#AffiliateLink) for free. This is truly the most unique scale I have ever owned.
You can set it up to recognize 8 different users – all you have to do is put in their height! It instantly displays your BMI (Body Mass Index), current weight, and your net weight change since your last weigh-in. It also calculates your net weight change from the average of your last 3, 7 and 30 weigh-ins to help provide a comprehensive understanding of your weight.
One feature that I loved was that it also displays your weight change in color, with a GREEN illumination for weight loss and RED for weight gain so you can focus on the trend, instead of the numbers.
The Ozeri WeightMaster II automatically calibrates with StepOn technology and auto-powers off. It also has a slip-resistant grooved ABS exterior reinforced with a tempered glass interior, and non-slip scratch-resistant feet that won’t damage flooring. Another great feature is that it is treated with Microban® antimicrobial product protection that disrupts the growth of stain and odor-causing bacteria and helps maintain surface cleanliness.
Tony has been going back to the gym recently and was excited to give this scale a try. At first it was a little confusing because it seemed like Tony’s weight was fluctuating =/- up to 4 pounds during a day . I did a little research and it says it is best to only weigh yourself once a day, because weight can fluctuate 3-5 pounds from morning to evening. Also, it is best to weigh yourself at the same time each day, either nude, or wearing similar clothing.
I am simply trying to maintain weight and figured this scale would be a good indicator. Here are my results:
L1 is the results over the last day, and L3 is the results over the last three days. They also have displays for last 7 days, and last 30 days. It rotates through all the different displays a few times before shutting off.
Luckily I have been hovering range of having a 19.4 BMI which is in the “Normal Range”.
When I was younger I was often in the Underweight category. In college the school nurse would always yell at me to eat more and my roommates would always explain that I was always eating! The school doctor even called my parents to express concerns that I might have an eating disorder, and might just be really good at covering it up. My parents had to explain that for years doctors had run all kinds of tests, and I just had a very fast metabolism. I was even voted “Biggest Moocher” in high school because I was always asking people if they were going to finish their snacks at lunch. In College I got the nickname “Munchies” because I was always eating.
Over the years I have been called many names: Stretch, Stroke, Giraffe just to name a few. I am constantly being told to eat more and told that I am lucky to be so thin. My weight and constant fatigue still concerns my doctors and they frequently send me for all kinds of testing. Different doctors always yield the same results – there is nothing medically wrong other than my heart going into A-Fib quite frequently. Thankfully it usually corrects itself within a few minutes and I have medication for when it doesn’t. Their only explanation is that I just have an extremely fast metabolism, and stress could be keeping the weight off.
Judging a person on their size, no matter what that size is, is wrong and hurtful.
