Would you love to be fit and healthy? – Keep an Eye on your weight with Ozeri Digital Bathroom Scale

I have mentioned in one of my Posts earlier – I don’t need Gym! No dieting…No Exercise … Because I do enough running, jogging, push ups and pull ups everyday- All curtesy of DD 2.   BUT, I do need to keep myself fit and watch my weight all the time .

Me and Hubby are opposite Poles in weight gaining! ( Well, As of Now, Might change later.), I eat so much, But hardly crossed 60 Kgs.  But Hubby ! – No No No.. Stop…Stop Assuming., I don’t mean to say he eats Less. Absolutely not. If there is something yummy, I hardly get a little for me to taste. But he is a Star in putting on weight – just like that. So he tried/ tries and trying to be conscious and maintain his weight.

We have already reviewed few products from Ozeri, the Amazing thermal Glasses which are still most loved and I can’t think of my tea time without it and amazed my friends as well. The other one was the Turtle thermometer that makes bathtime fun for the kids

This time, Ozeri asked us to review their new  Ozeri Precision Pro II Digital Bathroom Scale. We already own a manual/Analogue scale at home, Slightly smaller in Size, heavier. As we all know it is sometimes difficult to see the readings with Analogue Scales considering the fact that it is small in size.

So! How Ozeri Digital Bathroom Scale overcomes all these disadvantages!?

The Unique features of this Ozeri Precision Pro II Digital Bathroom Scale are

  • New Blue Backlit LCD screen with xBright technology provides immediate and easy to read results throughout the day.
  • New InstOn Technology captures the precise weight measurements upon contact (no tapping required).
  • Uses 4 high precision G sensors to weigh up to 440 pounds (200 kilograms) in 0.2lb or 0.1kg increments.
  • Award-winning design features an oversized weighing platform with impact-resistant tempered glass.
  • Automatically turns off to conserver battery life, and runs on 2 AAA batteries with battery indicator (batteries included).

That explains everything. One of the thing I liked about this Bathroom Scale is, this came with the Batteries. I am not comfortable with buying products without batteries and then running around the house to look for batteries or snatching a few from Kids toys and feel Guilty later.

Being a Fragile item, It was delivered Well Packed – Secured enough for peace of mind during delivery.  The Blue Backlit is very powerful, Bright and Big that you dont have to take any stress to see the reading – Well, You might be stressed sometimes after seeing your Weight though, Just Like How Hubby Did!. But Would you blame the Scale for it? After all, it is trying to be Honest with you and letting you know that it is time for More Work-outs.

It is Bit oversized as mentioned in the Unique features but I kind of liked it. Makes it more comfortable to stand on it becasue of the space. But it is not heavy to lift, So I am happy with it. A Small Switch at the back is used to change the readings to Kg or Pound. It is think and has eye catching silver border that gives a great look for the scale.

Ozeri Pre Scale 1

We have compared the reading with our Analogue Scale and it was almost the same. I did have a chance to check my weight with GP as well and both the readings matched very close. There were only a few Grams difference, But Honestly whereever you go and whatever you use, you will face this situation. As far as it is not showing Few Pounds/Kgs plus and the difference in only in grams, I think we can definitely live with it.

Few things you might be interested to Note:

  • It is made of Glass so You need to be careful handling it.
  • The Glass on the Top is Shiny, So it is slippery and if you tend to use it in the Bathroom as mentioned, Be careful that you don’t step on with the wet foot and slip off.
  • As the Glass is Shiny, You will notice Marks on the glass soon. But it clears off easily with a wipe clean.

After all, the Glossy Top is very Attractive that will tempt you to stand on it all the time and thus helps you monitor how good is your progress – Whether you scream out loud and give a smile after seeing your weight ! 🙂

Overall,  I found Ozeri Precision Pro II Digital Bathroom Scale as a good product and satisfied with the performance.  It is sold at Amazon UK from Ozeri Moderna at th price of RRP 29.95, But now on a great sale for Christmas at £18.95.

If you would like your partner to monitor the weight, This would be a perfect Christmas present for them. And Why to wait, Order today for intime Christmas Delivery.

As Christmas is fast approaching, every week end for the past 4 weeks goes in Christmas shopping and planning. To help me  ease the Shopping Chaos , Poundland had asked whether I could review their Christmas Decorations. How timely! It was just the right time to accpet the offer as I could stop thinking about having to go for shopping for new decorations and I happily accepted the offer. Really saved few hours of shopping.

I was expecting a  few tree decorations and tinsels. But, it was a huge collection of Decorations, Garlands, Placemat, Table runner, a pretty stocking and few other bits.Poundland Collection

Red is something that always looks bright and beautiful on anything and everything. And it was so much in time that I was getting myself ready to go for shopping to get some Red and green decorations.  The quality is fantastic and they are available on somuch affordable price. You can have a beautifully decorated Christmas Tree within 10£ budget.

The Kids enjoyed decorating the tree and couldn’t wait until December 1st. Now the Christmas Tree is up and decorated but DD 2 still thinks why they just can’t be a toy for her and for what reason they are on the tree. So she keeps pulling it down and I am sure I am going to be busy until New year in putting those decorations back on the tree

Poundland1

The quality is Very Good and most of the decorations are avaialble in a pack of 3, 4 or 6 and costs just £1 a pop. I definitely know where I’ll be going for my Christmas decorations from now on!

They do have products in all ranges including Christmas Presents, Christmas Food, Christmas decorations and whatever you think of about Christmas.

So Why to Wait! Let’s make a quick list to Santa now.

Junior Scholars – Learning Phonics with Leapfrog – Phonics factory

After a Quite Lon….g time,  I have recollected Phonics from teaching DD 1, 7 years before,. And now I am refreshing again with DD2. We have a phonis bus at home but was looking for something different for DD2 and Junior Scholars asked us to review  Leap frog letter factory Phonics.  This is a new version of the Fridge Phonics System and the Cute basket is a plus that keeps all the letters in one place unless you purposely hide them somewhere. heyyy… are all safe in the basket So I don’t have to run around the pieces.

Picture JS 1This comes in the Traditional Leap Frog green colour with White and has a cube for each letter in the Alphabet. So you get 26 cubes ( I am right Isn’t it, I have counted and confirmed with DD2). Each Letter has a song  and are designed big enough for the little hands to press. She needs a little help to keep the letter in place but eventually learnt it sooner than I expected.  She is good in Tidy up, so she makes sure she puts back as many letters as she can in the basket once she feels like having some rest.

It teaches both letter sound and the Phonics sound a with a song. My cooking time song on most of the times now is  – “A say A , A says a …”,

There is a also a full Phonics song button and when pressed the Phonics song is played in full. DD 2 loves to dance for it now.

And, as a great addition, it does have a volume button so when you really want a peace of time while watching TV, You can let them play a bit far away from you and still watch TV without getting attracted and distracted to the Phonics 🙂

The one this that could have been  improved is  – if the letter had a magnet or the base had one,It  can go on some magnetic board or the fridge for a while  so they can spell their name or so and have some fun. And I could also teach a word for each letter. Otherwise it is a great Christmas Present for your little one.

You can buy this toy from Junior Scholars – Leap frog letter factory Phonics  at a retail price of 14.99. Junior Scholars also has a great range of Educational toys for your little one to get them engaged during term holidays, so you get some rest 🙂 and they also have a good collection for Special Needs.
