Ozeri WeightMaster 400 Bathroom Scale - Review


"The Ozeri WeightMaster 400 lbs Digital Bath Scale with BMI and Weight Differential Detection was designed and engineered in the USA to provide a comprehensive yet simple weight management solution to measure and track your weight.  Featuring BMI Measurement and Auto Recognition Technology, the Ozeri WeightMaster weighs up to 400 lbs and displays your BMI (Body Mass Index), a measure of your body fat based on your height and weight.

Immediately after displaying your weight and BMI, the scale's Weight Differential Detection displays your "net weight change" from your last weigh-in (L1), the average of your last 3 weigh-ins (L3), and last 7 weigh-ins (L7).  By measuring your weight once a day, the Ozeri WeightMaster empowers you to see how your current weight changes day to day, from the last 3 days, and over the previous week.

For users who would rather just focus on their weight trend without worrying so much about the actual numbers, the WeightMaster features Color Alert Technology, which displays your weight change in a GREEN illumination for weight loss and RED for weight gain, providing a visual form of intuitive feedback. With built-in intelligence, the WeightMaster requires no complicated synching and spares you the data connection failures common to more expensive wireless and Bluetooth alternatives.

Precision engineered and durably made, WeightMaster auto-calibrates with StepOn technology and auto-powers off to preserve battery life. The Ozeri WeightMaster is made out of impact-resistant tempered glass, and equipped with non-slip scratch-resistant feet that won't damage flooring. Ships with batteries included, and backed by Ozeri's 100% Hassle-Free Satisfaction Guarantee."

Review:

I received this product for free in exchange for my honest opinion.

I really like this type of scale.  It is easy to use, the read out is easy to see, and the red/green colors are instant feedback as to whether you're losing or gaining weight.  For me, it has become a game to try to always make the color green.  And if your weight hasn't changed, it doesn't light up green or red.  Pretty neat visual.

The company includes batteries with the product and they are very easy to install.  They're just 3 triple A batteries.  The scale comes with a small instruction booklet that takes you through the steps to set up each user.  It also continues to recognize each user so there's no confusion as to who weighs what.  The only time that could be an issue is if the users are within 6 pounds of each other.  And depending on your preference, you can weigh in Kg or lb.  

If you're in the market for a new bathroom scale that's easy to use, I would highly recommend the Ozeri WeightMaster.  The instructions are clear, the scale is very easy to use, and can aid in your weight management goals.


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

Annie Crow Knoll: Sunset - Cover Reveal

Sunset


Return to Annie Crow Knoll. . . a place where people come to restore their spirits, heal their pain and reclaim their lives.

Nate Bidwell blamed his mother Annie for his parents' divorce. Buried hurts and resentments between mother and son make Nate reluctant to risk his heart when his childhood friend Beth Ann offers him her own. Instead, he allows himself to fall in love with the fragile and dependent June, and Annie's opposition to their marriage reignites years of unresolved conflict with her only child. Nate swears that he will never return to Annie Crow Knoll, his family home on the Chesapeake Bay. Instead, he opens his dream restaurant in Manhattan and tirelessly works to build his career as a chef.

When near-tragedy strikes their lives, though, Nate is forced to return to the one place he hopes may save his wife: Anne Crow Knoll. There, surrounded by the love and support of his mother, their friend Packard and Beth Ann, Nate and June face their doubts and fears about themselves, their marriage and their future. In the beauty of this Chesapeake community, they find hope and healing.


Annie Crow Knoll: Sunset will be released on September 14th. . .

whatifitslovebanner



Cover WIIL-M“Exceptionally entertaining.” -- 5 stars, Readers’ Favorite

“Stunning, beautifully written romance” -- 5 stars, Amazon reviewer

“I loved the relationship between Lena and Rob. What begins as a slow simmer quickly becomes molten between the two of them.” -- 5 stars, Amazon reviewer

>>> Can a Paris bistro heal a broken heart?
Charm, wit and poignancy abound in this gripping contemporary romance.

Introverted heiress Lena moves to Paris to nurse old wounds reopened by her neglectful boyfriend. Enter Rob, a charismatic and handsome Frenchman who waits tables at La Bohème -- a café on Lena’s street -- and has big dreams.

He makes her laugh and forget her insecurities. She stirs something infinitely tender in his soul. Before they know it, they’ve fallen for each other, even though both had good reasons to fight the budding love.

But their passionate romance is cut short when she discovers his dirty secret...

***

WHAT IF IT’S LOVE? is the first book in the “Bistro La Bohème” series.

>>> Is the “Bistro La Bohème” series for you?
If you’ve enjoyed “Amelie” and “Friends” and like smart heroines, sexy heroes, witty dialogue and heart-stopping romance, then give this series a try. It will delight you with an unforgettable cast of imperfect and charming young men and women who work or frequent an ordinary yet special Parisian café. They fall in love, cope with heartbreak and chase their dreams with a passion that makes them endearing even when in the wrong.

Welcome to the Bistro La Bohème! Take a seat by the window, order your café crème and lose yourself in these deeply romantic and heart-warming tales of love, friendship and finding out where you belong.

***

The books are interconnected, with a recurring setting and characters. But each story is self-contained, and you can read it as a stand-alone.

Review:
I received a copy of this book for free in exchange for my honest opinion.

I will admit first off I was slightly confused by the beginning of the book. I think I must have skipped over something and the story didn't make sense at first. Once I figured out what was going on I really got into the plot and the characters.

I really enjoyed the international setting of the story. I've never been to any of the locales described by the characters. I would absolutely love to visit places like Geneva and Paris. I also found the poems at the beginning of each chapter quite fitting. I'm not a huge fan of poetry, but I do appreciate the art of it.

I found myself really rooting for the two main characters, Lena and Rob. How the book is written the reader knows everything that is going on with everyone. I get into stories and I just wanted to shake them both or yell at them. Though, finally, in the end all is well. This is a wonderful story of love and the conflicts we allow to get in the way of what we truly want. Most times it is best to just tell ourselves to hush and trust our first instinct.

I would recommend this book to anyone. It is a classic tale of love lost and found again. It's really fun that it is set in the present. The story flows well and quickly pulls in the reader. Have fun reading it! I did.

About the Author:Alix_coffee_VS - copie

I am an avid reader of chick lit, romance and fantasy, caffeine addict and a badge-wearing Mr. Darcy/Colin Firth fan.

I released my first book at the age of six. It had six postcard-size pages stitched together and bound in velvet paper. The book was titled “Eliza and Robert” and had atrocious mistakes in every single word. Some words were written in mirror image. Unintentionally. I remember being immensely proud of my creation.

Turns out there’s a remarkable constancy to my life: decades later, I still love the name Robert and the genre romance. As for my spelling and grammar, they are only marginally better than at age six (thank God for editors!).

I live and work in Paris, France. When not writing, I read romance (what else?) and spend time with my family.
